IDtec Case Study

ID Technologies Implementation Approach

  • Problem

    • Daily SCRUM calls happen every morning. On the surface, this seems minimally important, but functionally, it turns each day into the equivalent of a software development sprint
  • Solution

    • The daily SCRUM draws immediate visibility to tasks that are not being accomplished, creates accurate situational awareness for all implementation engineers and ensures an accurate, well-orchestrated deployment

Overview.

Everyone talks about how they implement better than their peers. Everyone also follows roughly similar implementation approaches. Some version of a Plan, Design, Implement, Optimize wheel forms the foundation of the approach.

Challenge.

ID Tec has adopted principles from DevOps and incorporated them into our implementation wheel. Daily SCRUM calls happen every morning. On the surface, this seems minimally important, but functionally, it turns each day into the equivalent of a software development sprint.

There are so many discrete, but co-dependent tasks associated with CSfC deployments that every deployment engineer needs to know their role and the roles of their peers at all times. Frequent task changes happen in CSfC deployments and the co-dependency of the tasks makes any operation in even a partial information vacuum highly prone to error.

Solution.

The daily SCRUM draws immediate visibility to tasks that are not being accomplished, creates accurate situational awareness for all implementation engineers, and ensures an accurate, well-orchestrated deployment.

IDtec Case Study

Result.

Our overall implementation approach is not that different from our peers, but we have been through enough CSfC deployments to have identified and mitigated the primary source of risk and impediment to the fastest overall implementation.

    The Air Force needed to expand fiber optic availability to the south-side of Arnold Air Force Base (AFB) that required new or upgraded connectivity. ID Technologies and Trans-Tel worked together to provide the customer with increased fiber connectivity to outlying areas and additional fiber counts for future usage.

    Wireless Extension Box – The WEB Slinger

    One of the challenges with Air Force Flight Line network communication is size. The challenge is to wirelessly extend the network, making it easier to extend the network to the clients. The ID Technologies Wireless Extender Box (WEB Slinger) is a ruggedized mesh node capable of extending the network for WiFi clients.
