Network Cost Optimization – We identify and manage network cost optimization projects for CSPs.  CSPs spend millions of dollars each year in the lease circuits.  We generally find 10% or more in the cost savings through network re-configurations, term plans, vendor selections, etc.  Analytics is used to identify network savings opportunities.
  2. Carrier Contract & Tariff Analytics – CSPs regularly negotiate multimillion dollar wholesale contracts with other carriers.  There are many different ways to structure rates, commitments, terms, and penalties.  A structure of contract would determine future revenues and profitability as well as potential risks during the term of contract.  Additionally, a bad contract may constrain CSPs from negotiating a favorable contract term when the contract is ready for renew.  Contract analytics can assist CSPs in designing an optimal carrier contract.
