TESSCO's experts in Solutions Architecture and Network Design verified the CommScope Node A as the ideal solution for Green Mountain because of its versatility and scalability. With a deep product portfolio, TESSCO was able to deliver backup parts for maintenance cost-effectively and provide contractor training via their comprehensive educational and certification portfolio. When Green Mountain identified the need for additional installations, TESSCO experts were able to quickly and easily replicate each location's network, giving Green Mountain Power a streamlined, standardized network across all locations, allowing for fast carrier approvals and simplified maintenance. The project's scope allowed TESSCO to demonstrate their dedication to customers, recognizing Green Mountain Power's longstanding relationship and making sure their network needs were met and concerns were with attentive customer care. The Results Green Mountain Power was able to upgrade the connectivity at 16 of their locations, and counting, by partnering with TESSCO . This has allowed employees to remain connected wherever they go, improving their efficiency and upgrading their responsiveness to better serve their customers. Constant connectivity allows critical system alerts to be delivered to employee devices in real time for faster resolution, and their DAS system provides the increased reliability a utility company needs to ensure they are able to address issues during storms and emergencies. Green Mountain Power has been so satisfied with their installations that they are continuing to work with TESSCO on expanding their networks, and installing similar systems at more of their remote locations. (continued from page 17) TESSCO and Green Mountain Power Deploy Network Upgrades " This project is the perfect example of TESSCO's ability to serve as a true vendor partner and provide the link between customer, contractor, sales, market-leading vendors, pre-and post- sale technical support, and design engineering to architect a network connectivity solution that can be seamlessly repeated over multiple sites. Our supply chain support allowed Green Mountain to access the products they needed, receive on-time delivery, deploy swiftly, and complete the project on-time, at or below budget." - April Brown TESSCO Technologies Development Executive, Utilities TESSCO's Take without changing hardware. For oil and gas companies with sites spread across the country, improved interoperability between networks on different carriers is an additional benefit. A total shift in network for an operation as large and delicate as oil and gas can seem daunting, and the addition of a hard deadline for users on AT&T's 2G network only increases the pressure on upgrades. TESSCO is capable of packaging and delivering a complete, end-to-end solution that simplifies the upgrade and provides the maximum value to our customers.
