Business Model

Delivering value across the lab-to-live lifecycle.

We are behind our customers’ promise to deliver a new generation of innovative products & services to their customers. With them in every phase of the lifecycle from development in the lab-to-live deployment & operation, ensuring that new technology works.


Lab-to-live lifecycle needs


As our customers grapple with cloud networking complexity, the need to shift from a telco to IT mindset, and the implications of an expanding vendor ecosystem, they are transforming technology development in the lab with agile, continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) practices. Adoption of CI/CD faces headwinds as required cloud, security and automation skills are in short supply across many industries.


The transformation to CI/CD brings with it a heightened pace of technology releases which must be rapidly deployed to live environments. At the same time, new services and applications from edge computing to drone navigation come with higher performance expectations. Legacy, manual processes for deploying and operating new technology must give way to automated turn-up, monitoring and troubleshooting.
