A subsidiary of CloudStream were engaged to exit a number of sites on behalf of a leading telecommunications company. This included complex migrations from data centres, point of presences and co-location sites spanning across four countries in Europe.
The brief was to ensure that all customers and associated services were migrated to the target site and ensure that the exited sites were restored to their original states.
Our global team had to ensure they operated quickly and efficiently as several sites had non-negotiable exit dates, followed by large penalties. All sites were exited on time and within budget. Considering the scale of the project, mitigating several risk factors concerning the difficult locale, third parties, legacy equipment, poor inventories, proved decisive in the success of the project. Following a clear strategy and defined approach, helped to ensure the right things were getting done, in the right order, at the right time, by the right people.
We provided our client with a considerable technical real estate saving, successfully migrating all services onto new equipment. We also built the necessary infrastructure which will enable our client to scale their services in the future and improved performance monitoring to optimise the network service.
