Every network is different and each has specific characteristics requiring individual demands.

New approaches consistently faster innovation cycles, individual requirements and coalescing technologies – the fulfillment of the permanently increasing performance requirements of network environments implies multiple challenges.

Our PROFESSIONAL SERVICES area supports with an encompassing portfolio in strategic decisions for the further development and technological options throughout the complete project lifecycle.

Comprehensive Expertise & Best-in-Class Service

An optimal design of value-added solutions only arises out of considering all components and their interplay within an infrastructure and the surrounding conditions for the implementation and operation.

With its technological areas of

  • SOLUTION ARCHITECTURE
  • PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
  • ADVANCED SERVICES

Xantaro has established specialised and certified engineering teams, each focused on a specific project phase.

The three teams bundle a multilayer technology know-how around network infrastructures, its abstraction, control and protection, around value-added and central services, as well as around orchestration and automation.

To realise agile, innovative and future-proof solutions, the consultants and engineers work closely together in all project phases – from the development through implementation and commissioning up to maintenance services and operations support.
