As the cost of technology decreases, populations across the globe are consuming tech products at record-breaking rates. Original equipment manufacturers (OEM) are growing to meet market demand, but this growth creates new challenges. Returns management costs increase and customer service is sacrificed to save money.
Partnering with an Aftermarket Services provider such as Telmar can create significant financial benefits including cash flow improvements, inventory reductions and service level improvements. Although currently viewed as a cost center, Aftermarket Services — encompassing everything from reverse logistics to service parts management to repair and refurbishment and everything in between —can actually be leveraged into profit and add value and differentiation to a manufacturer’s brand.
Working collaboratively, the provider becomes an extension of a company’s brand. They focus on improving the end-customer experience, reducing field returns and identifying mutually beneficial strategies that leverage each partner’s strengths. Value is created for companies by bringing customized product management and logistics management solutions to the table. These solutions help simplify global supply chain complexities and identify operational efficiencies. The resulting cost savings and increased customer satisfaction help companies stay competitive in today’s global marketplace.

Telecom Equipment Repair Reduces Network Operating Costs November 2, 2011Posted by admin in : Repair, Telecom Equipment Repair, Telecom Network Support , add a comment
Dealing with failing tower mounted amplifiers (TMAs) in your wireless network? Instead of replacing your TMAs and restarting the ROI clock, reduce your network operating cost with Telmar’s telecom equipment repair solution.
TMAs ensure strong uplink communication, increase site capacity and improve return on investment on cell site deployments. The payback time on TMAs is usually between two and 12 months, but when its out of warranty and fails, it’s often replaced with a new unit starting the ROI clock all over again.
With Telmar’s telecom repair solution, you can easily redeploy your TMA for years of reliable service at a mere fraction of the cost. Not to mention, all of Telmar’s telecom repairs have a turnaround time of 15 days or less and come with a one-year warranty.
So the next time you find yourself with a failing Ericsson, RFS, Andrew or Powerwave TMA, turn to Telmar for a fast solution that won’t restart your ROI clock.

Qualquer um, que esteja ligado no setor de telecomunicações e TI, estará em São Paulo, participando do maior tradeshow da América Latina: o Futurecom 2011. Com início em 12 de Setembro, o evento será realizado no Transamérica Expo Center e deverá reunir mais de 21 mil pessoas de aproximadamente 42 países. Os participantes circularão pela ampla área de exposições, o Business Trade Show, e participarão de painéis e palestras do Seminário Internacional. A TEL-NT, subsidiária da Telmar Network Technology, estará presente no Futurecom com um estande (C41) no Pavilhão C.
Adicionalmente à participação como uma das empresas expositoras, dois dos principais executivos da TEL-NT participarão do Seminário Internacional. Luiz Cláudio Santos Rosa, Diretor Geral da TEL-NT no Brasil participará do painel: “Operadoras Virtuais, Uma Nova Ótica para o Brasil na Prestação de Serviços: Oportunidades e Desafios!”, que abordará as condições brasileiras e a regulação das operadoras virtuais, MVNO’s e o papel das MNVE’s para que esta nova forma de prestação de serviços possa levar mais e melhores serviços aos clientes, considerando os aspectos mercadológicos e de negócios. O painel acontecerá no segundo dia de evento, 13 de Setembro das 11h30 as 12h40, no Auditório Inovação do Pavilhão C.
Egbert Clarke, Vice-Presidente de Negócios Internacionais da Telmar será Keynote Speaker e ministrará a palestra “Como a Otimização da Rede Impacta a Receita”. Segundo Clarke, as redes de telecomunicações são ativos complexos e dinâmicos para os provedores de serviços, e precisam ser ativamente gerenciadas para otimizar o uso da sua capacidade e qualidade de serviços. Por isso, redes de telecomunicações com custos otimizados não apenas garantem a excelência operacional, para que as empresas mantenham-se competitivas e aumentem a sua lucratividade, como também reduzem os custos de OPEX – os quais, normalmente, representam 55% a 65% das despesas. Soluções de Suporte à Rede, incluindo toda a gestão de peças de reposição (SPM – Spare Part Management) e o reparo de sobressalentes, asseguram que os provedores de serviços possam otimizar as suas redes. Ao mesmo tempo, geram uma grande economia, ajudando a facilitar investimentos contínuos nas redes de comunicações. A palestra de Egbert Clarke também acontecerá no dia 13 de Setembro, no Auditório Inovação do Pavilhão C, das 10h50 as 11h20, pouco antes do painel do Luiz Cláudio.

From a Small Florida Shop Emerges the World’s Leader in Reuse Telecom and Telecom Equipment Repair July 20, 2011Posted by admin in : Asset Management and Disposition, Certified Pre-Owned Telecom Equipment, Enterprise, Repair, Reuse Telecom Equipment, Telecom Enterprise, Telecom Equipment Repair , add a comment
Four years ago, Telmar Network Technology became the world’s largest, independent provider of pre-owned equipment and a leader of independent repair services in the communications market through the acquisition of Precision Communications (PCS).
The history of Precision Communication Services (PCS) is a classic example of a corporate American success story. Founded in 1971 by Douglas R. Kenny, PCS was focused on providing a “one-stop solution” for the repair, refurbishment and resale of telecommunications equipment. The company started out as a four person operation in a 1,000-square-foot facility. The corporate vision was to offer the operating telephone companies an alternative to OEM repair by providing an independent repair solution.
The corporate mission was straight forward; customer focus while providing the employees a stable and productive work environment. Evidence of this mission can still be found today by having the initial PCS customer still as a current major customer and having two of the initial employees still employed.
Over the years, PCS was successful in adding additional service offerings and developed additional capabilities in order to keep pace with the ever changing Telecom Industry. The continued growth required the opening of the first remote location in Tarboro, NC, in 1996. The ongoing success and growth hit new milestones with the acquisition of the Nortel Enterprise facility in Toronto, Canada, in 2000 and the opening of the Plano, Texas, facility in 2001. The fifth PCS location was opened in 2006 in Calgary, Canada.
The combined PCS facilities were over 500,000 square feet in size, employed over 450 employees and produced 70 million dollars in annual revenue. The true success of PCS, though, was the dedicated employee base – 23 percent of which has more than 20 years of service.
In 2007, PCS was acquired and merged with Telmar Network Technology creating one of the largest full-service organizations to offer multi-vendor repair, spare parts management, certified pre-owned equipment and more to enterprises, OEMs and service providers around the world.
Now in 2011, Michael Kenny, son of PCS founder Douglas Kenny, resides in Tampa and oversees the company’s repair services. Telmar is continuing to grow around the world, leading the industry in providing products and services that help maintain and grow communications networks for OEMs, service providers and enterprises around the world.
