ARM Data Center Solutions is Transforming Network Data Inventory for Operators

ARM®, the most innovative network inventory and asset recovery company, today announces it has grown 300% since its launch last year at Capacity North America by enabling clients to transform their network inventory practices.   ARM® is successfully working together with network providers to stop expense leakage, integrate acquisitions and turn up revenue faster, resulting in millions of dollars of Netex, Capex, and recovered revenues for its clients.    

Clients’ data driven transformation is enabled by ARM’s proprietary cARMa® platform and experienced multi-disciplinary team who have certified over 350,000 ports to date, across 77 data centers.  In the second quarter of 2018, ARM® expanded operations into Canada, supporting data centers in Toronto and Montreal.

“Clients are demanding the same thing whether they are CLECs, data center operators, or fiber operators, and that is to accelerate strategic and tactical initiatives that depend on accurate network data that is consolidated into a single source of truth,” states Frank McDermott CEO of ARM®.

The communications market is moving quickly, there has been growth and modernization of networks with cloud architectures, virtualization and software defined services.  Now the transformation of inventory and network data needs to keep pace with that modernization.  “Initially customers engage with us on a tactical challenge, continues Frank McDermott, “then ARM® goes thru the discovery process and brings all the data sources into one view.  As that happens, clients envision their inventory data as a key strategic enabler of their modernization, integration, and financial initiatives.”

ARM® is the official Wi-Fi sponsor of Capacity North America 2018 hosted in Denver, CO on September 5-6, 2018.   For more information about the conference agenda, visit Capacity North America 2018

Forfeited Revenue: A New Metric to Quantify Telecommunications & Data Center EBITDA Losses due to Late Service Installs

Forfeited Revenue: A New Metric to Quantify Telecommunications & Data Center EBITDA Losses due to Late Service Installs

Forfeited Revenue is the total dollar value of services that a customer has agreed to pay for that is permanently lost when a carrier or data center cannot deliver services on time according to CRD.  It shows how effectively any carrier or data center maximizes revenue based on the orders their customers have already signed. Ideally, every order would be installed on CRD, making Forfeited Revenue zero, because the carrier managed inventory, equipment, and processes to efficiently respond to customers’ needs.   However, every dollar of Forfeited Revenue is an opportunity lost forever.   This metric directly quantifies the revenue impact of late installs for the carrier, and standardizes all comparisons of impact across customers, business units, and products using dollars.  Decision makers can subsequently evaluate, prioritize, select, and execute improvement programs using Forfeited Revenue, cost and duration to calculate standard measures of ROI.
