We design, engineer, integrate, supply, install, test & commission and manage all the activities for turnkey execution of converged telecommunication and surveillance systems projects. Our design and implementation capability ranges from simple point to point network to complex converged telecommunication network comprising multiple systems designed to meet specific customer needs. Highlights of our turnkey solutions are as indicated below:
Upon award of contract, Commtel’s solutions design team commences the systems detailed design activity which involves development and generation of Design Basis Memorandum (DBM) or Functional Design Specification (FDS) document that enables verification against the design and development input and is approved by the customer prior to implementation. The DBM/FDS includes appropriate information for purchasing, product and service provision, Product acceptance criteria & Characteristics of the products as well as network engineering such as link analysis calculation and study, system availability calculations, power consumption calculations, detailed bay face and site layout drawings etc.
Upon approval of Design Basis Memorandum (DBM) or Functional Design Specification (FDS) documents Commtel’s supply chain management team procures and obtains deliveries of all the equipment and accessories from multiple suppliers and partners. The supply chain management activity requires highly specialized skills and knowledge about global procurement process and procedures and the same is deeply embedded into the team at Commtel.
Deploying networks for mission critical application mandates that the systems are built with highest quality standards and process. Nothing is left to chance and hence Systems Integration activity is an integral process of our turnkey solutions. We build and assemble systems to customer specifications and needs at our state of the art systems integration facilities based in India and UAE. Attention to smallest details such as cable routing, labeling etc is paid during this activity which ensures a high quality of workmanship as well as minimal amount of time is spent at site during installation.
Commtel has a very special way of testing various components of system supplies. The Integrated Factory Acceptance Testing ensures reliable testing of interoperability of multiple systems in a seamless manner. The onsite interconnection of the system is staged at systems integration center to simulate site conditions. Such testing methodology provides the customer with an opportunity to perform all the tests as desired to satisfy themselves of systems functionality. Modifications if any can be easily implemented prior to the dispatch of equipment at sites.
Commtel's dedicated team of engineers and technicians has substantial experience in installation and commissioning of converged telecom networks in varied environmental and site conditions.
Once the entire system is deployed at site and commissioned, systems site acceptance testing is conducted in presence of the customer and end to end system operation is verified in conjunction with the specifications.
The final and most important stage of a turnkey solution is generation and submission of systems as-built documentation. All drawings and documents as submitted during the detailed design phase are updated to reflect as-built situation and submitted to the customer as part of the handover process.
The key to success in executing turnkey solutions is superlative project management. The project manager actually works as the customer's representative inside Commtel and drives the entire solutions delivery process as per the demands of the customer.
As part of turn-key solution, a detailed project execution plan with schedule is prepared and followed towards defined deliverables and milestones. Regular updates of progress are provided to the designated customer representative through reports and scheduled project meetings, which also serve as the platform to resolve outstanding issues. In most cases, the turnkey telecom solution proceeds in conjunction with the customer's overall project execution. The process involves interfacing and coordination with the multiple parties including EPCs, civil and electrical contractors, government and regulatory bodies. Commtel have developed in-depth experience in execution of telecom projects through years of practice in this domain.
