Engineering Services

Why outsource your engineering services?

Cable and telecom operators have streamlined their operations and engineering organizations but the environment is still one of complex change. An external advisor can bring in the targeted resources to minimize operational impact and temporarily expand engineering resources to complete mission critical projects and tasks with no long-term impact on Opex.

Coppervale engineering consultants have over 75 combined years of technical, operational and managerial experience of complex network architectures. We cover many different disciplines, work comfortably across cultures and in foreign environments, and offer scalable levels of expertise to fit any client’s unique budget, project complexities, and goals.

Below is a partial list of Coppervale’s engineering consulting services:
