Bureau telecoms inks deal to monitor carrier compliance

PHILIPSBURG - NAAP Global Solutions, a leading global provider of asset management solutions for telecommunications carriers and utility companies, announced this week that Bureau Telecommunications and Post St. Maarten (BTP) has selected its Network Asset Administration Program (NAAP) to monitor operator compliance, reduce overhead and OPEX, generate fee revenue as clearinghouse of information and to improve emergency recovery in the case of a natural disaster.

BTP is joining a group of clients that have this unique asset management solution used worldwide to lower site management and maintenance costs, and track assets and inventory.

"This solution will help us greatly in ensuring compliance, avoiding and quickly resolving spectrum and proximity issues, and decreasing required site visits and the associated risks to personnel," Interim Director BTP St. Maarten Peggy Ann Brandon was quoted as saying.

"It is a tremendous step forward in terms of cost efficiency and innovation," she added.

And, according NAAP Director of Sales Fernando Paiz: "We're very pleased to have BTP St. Maarten choose our solution and particularly for the way that they will use it which we think will serve as a model for other regulators to follow. It demonstrates significant foresight on their part as well as the versatility of the solution."

The solution purchased by BTP features state of the art 3-D site surveys and NAAP's carrier-grade software featuring modules for asset tracking, inventory, documents and project management, tower load analysis, security and maintenance.

In addition to being at risk for hurricanes, the island is home to two countries (St. Maarten and St. Martin) and is subject to spectrum related issues and near proximity disputes, which can be costly and delay progress. BTP cited affordability, reliability and NAAP's cloud-based solution as important features among the factors that it weighed in its decision.

NAAP Global Solutions, Ltd. asset management solutions have been deployed by carriers in over fifteen countries worldwide. With its comprehensive software, NAAP Global Solutions says it brings to the market an innovative and powerful solution to address the growing need for Telecom Expense Management (TEM).
