OVERLAND PARK, Kan., May 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TMNG Global (Nasdaq:TMNG), a premier provider of professional services and software solutions to global leaders in the communications, digital media, and technology industries, today announced the launch of its new portfolio of services – Network Lifecycle Management Services (NLMS) – which provides the methods, tools and expertise for operators to maintain the highest levels of customer satisfaction while seamlessly implementing new, complex network services and transitioning to new network technology. This ensures carrier profitability, growth and maximum utilization of all network resources – both new and legacy.

"Operators spend a significant percentage of total capital on their networks and the current industry rightsizing is creating a fundamental issue for service providers today," said Don Klumb, TMNG Global's CEO. "Carriers need to implement new services and efficiently manage their new networks while migrating customers and decommissioning their legacy networks. However, priority must be given to customer satisfaction. The biggest challenge for operators is striking the right balance between delivering superior customer service, driving business growth initiatives and the need to effectively manage network-related capital and operating costs."

TMNG's Network Lifecycle Management Services portfolio is a comprehensive set of services designed to assist operators with increasing demands on resources and the concurrent need to drive revenue growth with complex new services. The Network Lifecycle Management Services portfolio supports the full range of network lifecycle functions - from architecture and design through operations and optimization, to planning and managing legacy network decommissioning and customer migrations.

Developed specifically to address both strategic and operational goals of service providers, the Network Lifecycle Management Services portfolio will help operators design, implement and monetize complex multi-partner and multi-technology voice, data and video services and manage network-related costs for steady-state operational efficiency and maximum profitability. And, when the time is right, the portfolio extends to planning and management of legacy network decommissioning and migration of customers to next generation network technologies and services.

Among the services delivered in TMNG Global's new Network Lifecycle Management Services portfolio include:

  • Strategy and Architecture – Business and technical planning, cost benchmarking and capital build-out optimization
  • Operations and Optimization – Operations and systems effectiveness planning, on-net and off-net capacity and cost management, and advanced network data analytics and reporting
  • Decommissioning and Migration – Service and customer migration to new network technologies and decommissioning of legacy network assets
  • Managed Services – Fully outsourced telecom management for enterprise customers, including SLA validation and monitoring

As service providers evolve to new network technologies, they can expect additional benefits. Careful planning will minimize customer impact associated with migration and TMNG's advanced network data analytics and reporting, industry-renowned program management and governance expertise and tools will optimize execution to ensure the highest customer satisfaction.
