Network Planning

The following saying is as true today as it was when first spoken:  “If you fail to plan you plan to fail!”

 Planning your communications requirements for a project or field operation should be treated with as much care as any other aspect of the task.  Sadly this is often not the case, with the comms element being relegated to a single line item in the overall budget with the ordering of equipment left until the last possible moment.

The results are all too predictable and, sadly, all too frequent.  Wrong equipment, poor coverage and general lacklustre performance of the system; if it can even be called a ‘system’.

The overriding reason for this is ignorance: not in a nasty way but in a ‘lack of knowledge’ way.  Often people are frightened of what they don’t understand, so rather than addressing this they ignore it.  Unless you are an IT professional, you wouldn’t attempt to plan and implement your own IT requirements, so why take the same approach with your communications, which can be every bit as complicated and fickle as an IT network.

Licensing is also a key component of network planning.  In the UK we will liaise with OFCOM on your behalf to secure the licences that you need to operate legally.  Overseas we will work with you in your operational jurisdiction to ensure you comply with the necessary regulations.

With G6 as your partner we will undertake all of this for you.  Click on the ‘more details’ tab for an overview of what is involved or just call us on +44 (0)1454 610050 and tell us what you are planning.
