Governments

flagworldmap

We have undertaken telecommunications assignments for governments around the world.  In some cases these are the same services that we offer to large corporations to keep their networks optimised and secure.  In other cases we are retained to evaluate or implement government programmes.  And in other cases we are asked to give regulatory advice or implement regulatory programmes.  We undertake these assignments for a full range of governments, from the largest in the world to aboriginal tribal councils.

Services we offer Governments:

Communications Options has a long history of regulatory consulting assignments. We advised one carrier of the regulatory requirements for establishing sharing groups within their largest client base, and for another the regulatory procedures involved in setting up a border crossing for their fibre optic network. Read more…

Network Optimisations

Systems Specifications and Sourcing

The specification, sourcing, procurement, and implementation of telephone, voicemail, call and contact centre, and related systems, typically involves substantial capital expenditure and significant exposure to risk.  Our consultants have implemented more than a half a million lines of telephony and associated switching systems. Accordingly, Communications Options has developed a methodology aiming to de-risk the process, and to ensure that the optimal system is implemented at the best price. Read more…

 Employee Abuse

Clients are usually surprised to discover the level of employee abuse of their telecommunications systems. Even in companies whose telecommunications are otherwise well managed, employee abuse can reach 30% of telecommunications expense. In companies where telecommunications expense has not been well managed, we have seen situations where employee abuse accounted for as much as 50% of telecommunications expense. Read more…
