A Telecom XT update

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 17-Feb-2010 11:20

After the (small) glitch affecting SMS services on Telecom XT this week I asked their people for an update and here it is:

Obviously the reason we're doing the [external] review is to ask those questions - what's going on/where is the problem - but there's also a whole lot of planned work going on at the same time as the review is underway. Naturally the results of the review will feed into this, but we're getting on with things in the meantime, all of which will help to improve user experience.

Paul talked a fair bit about this at our Q2 results last week, here's a summary of what he discussed at the results preso:

. We're increasing the RNC processor capacity
. We're regularly installing updates to the software to improve resilience
. We also had some things in the plan as the number subscribers on the network grew. This is all going to occur over the next few months which will further improve resilience and the customer experience
. We'll also be adding two more RNCs by March - another one in CHCH and another one in AKL
. We're adding more fibre backhaul
. We're adding more cell sites, and we're amplifying some cell sites too

Alongside that we've gone absolutely microscopic on the operational management of the network, which is being continually monitored right down to cell site by cell site level at the very highest levels of the company.

As Paul's said - XT was built to be a world class network and that's what it needs to be - we're determined to get it there and it's absolutely the number one focus at the company right now, as you would expect.
