Planning and Evolution

A carrier’s network is at the core of everything they do, and proper network planning is critical for maintaining a competitive edge and capitalizing on new revenue streams. Introducing 5G and other new technologies, meeting capacity requirements and deploying new services such as VoLTE, all require careful planning.

A poorly designed network can lead to costly performance issues that siphon away valuable time and resources in efforts to find a fix – often without success. The initial design stage can also have a big and lasting impact on network costs. An inefficient design can significantly increase CAPEX for no additional performance gains. While designing and building greenfield networks is quite rare these days, network design is still an integral part of the network lifecycle. That’s because networks are continually expanding to match growing demand for capacity, and new technologies such as 5G are being deployed on top of existing networks.

At TEOCO, we offer planning and evolution services in three primary categories:


What is your 5G business case? Have you decided on your business model, timing, industry verticals, or ROI on options? What technology makes sense? What spectrum should be re-purposed? TEOCO’s experts can help you work through all these options, and more.


You need to keep pace with the latest technology releases to maintain competitiveness and meet customer demand. Adding a new technology, (such as LTE, VoLTE, IoT or 5G) to an existing network brings significant technical and resource challenges. Taking a services approach to deploying new technologies ensures access to global best practices and prevents your existing team from being stretched too thin.


Mobile networks are going through a consolidation phase, with many operators merging or signing network sharing agreements to gain much needed financial and performance benefits. Both scenarios require consolidating two networks into one. TEOCO’s expertise ensures your consolidation runs smoothly.
