What Is a Factory Built Network (FBN)®?
LightRiver has developed and implemented a patented, turn-key delivery process, serving as a predictable and proven methodology of deploying complex telecommunications networks.
LightRiver’s intelligent Factory Built Network® (iFBN) solution leverages our network engineering expertise, product reach, testing resources, logistics capabilities and multivendor network automation platform to deliver higher value transport networks. In combination with our unique multi-vendor technology laboratories and purpose-built network factories, LightRiver specialists build, deploy and support the highest-performing, most reliable transport networks with unprecedented speed and cost-efficiency. After an unparalleled battery of extended testing and burn-in in LightRiver’s facility, networks are deployed rapidly and efficiently in the field, completing new network deployment in record time, while offering an objective prescription for ongoing network health.
Turnkey Solutions Individually Tailored to each Client!
The Factory Built Network® (FBN) model has been proven to deliver better documented, more reliable networks, with less technology risk, in less time, and with less disruption and lower cost to customers.
LightRiver’s process for deploying Factory Built Network mitigates the inherent risks and delays in a traditional deployment process, transfers more knowledge and enables the unprecedented use of task-relevant expertise and testing. As a result, LightRiver can build better networks, faster.
All equipment is shipped to LightRiver’s facility initially, organized, labeled and managed efficiently by inventory control experts. Failed parts are identified and replaced early in the process, without the need for extended stays at customer sites, extra trips to remote locations or increased expense for customer escorts.
In a centralized laboratory setting, or “factory,” LightRiver manages the work in a more productve and efficient manner, in a roomier and better-organized environment, and brings in highly experienced specialists and test equipment as needed for each step of the process.
