Developing Infrastructure Launches Your WorldWide Connection


28 June 2018


Developing Infrastructure, the go-to consulting group for technical and business support on satellite and terrestrial services throughout the developing world, will introduce their new telecommunications service brokerage,

Your WorldWide Connection takes requirements from communications providers and matches them to local and international service providers, giving Developing Infrastructure's partners the ability to choose from a number of potential suppliers. Service options include satellite, terrestrial microwave, fibre optic, and mobile data connections in more than 140 countries. Throughout the process, specialist consultants from Developing Infrastructure help define requirements and provide support services as necessary, such as licensing, market entry, importation of equipment, and field engineering.

'Companies looking to provide connectivity services outside their comfort zone face a lot of challenges,' said Onno Beemsterboer, Managing Consultant of Developing Infrastructure. 'Our job is to help them overcome those challenges by putting them in touch with the people who can most effectively -- and cost-efficiently -- provide them the service they require. Most importantly, we're not providing the services ourselves and we do not compete with our customers for the business of end-users; we're facilitators, connecting the right people to make the right solution happen.'

Developing Infrastructure also helps telecommunications network operators reach services standardisation, by offering standardised monitoring, billing, and other mission-critical, but often overlooked, technical enhancements to their existing offerings. Consultants also can advise telecoms operators on market pricing, go-to-market strategy, choosing and sourcing equipment, as well as the design and implementation of services.

'There are a lot of good folks out there, offering rock-solid services, but most don't have an integrated system,' said Travis Mooney, Principal Consultant of Developing Infrastructure. 'For example, there are thousands of iDirect hubs out there, but only a handful of providers have any sort of integrated billing or monitoring package for their customers, and most of those are heavily customised. We work with telecoms operators to make sure their entire business -- from pricing and technical design, all the way to end-user experience -- is as seamless as possible. From international satellite operator to local wireless ISP, there's always a solution that fits, reduces subsequent support and administrative costs, and delivers a better customer service experience to the end user.'
