The demand for legacy telecom networking equipment still exists. Earlier this year, we successfully completed de-commissioning of a large Alcatel-Lucent (Nokia) Evolium™ 1000 E10 OCB283 Switch from a national operator in Europe. Following the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) declaring this product “Maintenance Services End of Life”, we have been contacted by many operators and service providers for hardware support. Recently we won a tender to supply spare parts to a national operator within Asia to the value of $90,000.
The Nokia Evolium™ 1000 E10 OCB283 is a former Alcatel switch based on RCX technology. The 1000 E10 OCB283 NMC, or “OCB283 FIXE NMC” is the management software for the switch.
Also known as the E10, the Nokia Evolium has a modular architecture structure whereby the system functions are distributed over its component modules. This means in addition to being reliable and dependable, the system can easily adapt and be expanded or upgraded when needed, making it ideal for evolving networks.
Telecom network de-installation and decommission
With the deployment of new telecom networking technologies, older legacy networks are becoming more expensive to operate and maintain. Taking a sustainable and responsible approach to asset disposal, de-installation of communication networks is becoming more common within the telecoms industry.
