New equipment, with new technology. It keeps coming, in personal gear and global systems.
Sometimes it's all new, all at once. Or it rolls out in phases. Other times it's an upgrade from current gear, but it's a gradual replacement controlled by budgets. In most cases, the existing environment doesn't just disappear immediately. There's constant transition requiring updating of skills and procedures, and integration between the old with the new. Communications readiness means:
- Planning for the acquisition and integration of new equipment into an on-going operational environment
- Testing the behavior and effectiveness of new technology compared to known equipment, and identifying interoperability issues in mixed environments
- Training personnel on new procedures and problem resolution scenarios
You need to develop new operating procedures and train for the integrated environment during transition. You must be prepared to take advantage of emerging technology with confidence.
How do you really learn about equipment before you actually have it?
With simulation solutions from SCALABLE.SCALABLE software products enable you to create highly realistic models of both the existing communications network and the new technology, enabling technicians and operations personnel to gain hands-on experience. Our mixed mode capabilities let you integrate the software virtual network models with your actual existing hardware and applications -- the old and the new.Simulation becomes an on-going tactical tool to ensure communications readiness.
