Deinstallation of redundant Ericsson AXE – Operator in Germany
Home » Deinstallation of redundant Ericsson AXE – Operator in Germany
An international operator was struggling to find a cost effective and available partner to remove a redundant AXE 10 that was due to be decommissioned in Frankfurt. Due to internal challenges, the equipment remained in service beyond original scope and had to be rapidly deinstalled once traffic was removed. Unfortunately, the operator did not have exact dates and needed a team on standby to respond immediately. To add to the issue, the property lease was coming to an end, and they would be faced with penalties if the floor was not cleared in time.
Our relationship manager was in daily contact with the operator on the status of the decommission and we were finally given the green light to proceed on a Monday afternoon. On Tuesday evening our team arrived in Frankfurt from the UK and were on site at 07:30 on Wednesday morning. The equipment had to be removed from the fifth floor by close of business on that Friday, allowing for three days to complete the project.
Our team worked tirelessly to remove 56 cabinets of AXE 10 BYB 202, including standby battery banks, DC power systems, UPS systems, cabling, associated peripheral cabinets, DDF’s and other miscellaneous equipment.
We left the entire floor (300 sq.mt) empty and clean, with all material off site by 15:00 on the Friday.
Customer managed to have the entire floor clear of equipment by 15:00 on Friday, within four days’ notice to Carritech
Zero cost to the customer with Carritech making a payment for the equipment removed
Highly reliable and dynamic service from Carritech
Customer was delighted with our ability to respond and complete the work within such tight timescales
Customers words at the debrief: “I cannot believe you managed to do it, I just didn’t think that you would be able to get it out in time”.
