Analysis and design 

Evotec believes that the ideal communications solution provides a combination of coverage, reliability and cost-effectiveness. We provide a thorough analysis and design service to ensure your business is receiving the appropriate solution for your requirements. To enable us to offer our customers the optimum communications solution, we have selected products from Telstra.

Telstra is committed to retaining its technological leadership and network superiority, and combining these with innovative pricing plans and loyalty benefits. With the Telstra portfolio as our foundation, we pride ourselves on our commitment to designing the right solution for you. To do so, we conduct analysis of the relevant factors, and recommend Telstra solutions of relevance to your requirements now, and in the future. 

Mobile voice 

What is of significance to us when recommending a mobile voice solution? We consider a variety of factors:

  • The network your company requires: whether you require a pure voice solution, or intend to also use the data capability of the Next G™ network
  • Your staff members' call patterns: how frequently calls are made, at what time, to whom, and for how long 
  • The handset functionality required by your staff: what they will need to do with their mobile phone, and the features necessary for this.

Assessment of this information provides us with a typical guide to your usage patterns, and enables us to identify the download volume you will require. Your download requirement will determine the plan we recommend. 

Fixed voice 

The most significant factor in our recommendation of a fixed voice solution is your company’s call patterns. We consider where you are making your calls, the duration of your calls, and at what time your calls are made. This analysis allows us to determine where your greatest investment is, and therefore the most sensitive area of your communications costs. We will also consider your other Telstra services, and any joint benefits or cost efficiencies available to your company. 

Fixed data 

Analysis and design of fixed data solutions is arguably the most complex of our analysis and design services. Design of a fixed data solution can require a complicated assessment of factors such as: 

  • Your basic requirements: whether you require a single link to the internet, or a site-to-site data network, and the quantity of sites requiring connectivity
  • The geographical location(s) of your offices: this will influence the data services available to you, and your investment 
  • Your data volume requirements: the volume of data you will be downloading and uploading, and any differences in this across multiple sites
  • The criticality of your data service: the level of criticality will determine the support levels required, and the service level commitment from Telstra
  • Your existing infrastructure: your physical network components, and associated warranty and support agreements 
  • Your requirement for voice capability: it is imperative that should the data service be used to support voice applications, that it meet minimum quality of service requirements. We combine our analyses to design a data proposal that details the services required at each of your sites. 

We can combine services to ensure the requirements of each of your sites are met, while adhering to your company’s overall data strategy.

BlackBerry® 

Our design for your BlackBerry solution will be based on three key elements: a decision regarding BES or BIS, the preferred device, and the necessary plan. To formulate the ideal combination of these factors, we consider a number of elements:

  • Your company e-mail configuration: selection of connection to BlackBerry Enterprise Solution or BlackBerry Internet Solution will depend on your company’s e-mail system 
  • Your preferred device size: whether you prefer a larger device with a subsequently larger display and keyboard, or a smaller, more compact device
  • Your preference for a QWERTY keyboard, or a combined phone and QWERTY layout
  • Your preference for navigation by a thumb-operated trackwheel or a trackball
  • Your preference for enhanced multimedia capability: GPS, digital camera or media player BlackBerry plans allow for unlimited BlackBerry e-mail and BlackBerry browser usage. Plans are associated with your chosen device and the terms of the plan. 

We will assess the above factors and recommend your platform, your device, and your Telstra BlackBerry plan.
