Management of network trial projects during vendor evaluation

In conjunction with issuing a RFP for a major network swap, a European 3G operator wanted to perform trials with two potential system suppliers. Northstream provided Project Management support for both trials to secure that the trial networks were implemented on time and that the two vendors were properly evaluated with respect to their capability to execute a network swap project. In this, Northstream managed the operator’s internal project teams for each trial, and synchronized all vendor relations during the trial network installation, commissioning, integration and operation phases.
