Management & Consultancy
Evolving markets, corporate mergers and ongoing process development: often, changes in processes give impetus to revising strategies and behaviors. Axians advises and supports you in welcoming externally induced process changes, and in planning and implementing new strategies. As your reliable partner, we make sure that your strategies can be gainfully sustained well beyond implementation.
Optimization of existing processes
We focus on complying with your corporate culture, business processes in place, and existing ICT environment. In our opinion, IT does not only support a business, but also acts as a catalyst for the optimization of existing processes. Therefore, we support CIOs and management teams in analyzing, planning and implementing new ideas. Our years of experience and holistic approach in program and project management ensure that even complex tasks are clearly defined, well planned and implemented smoothly.
We work in close cooperation with you to define your IT strategy and optimize the procurement of hardware and software components.
Thanks to our local presence and thorough knowledge of a variety of industries where we operate, Axians makes the precise analysis of requirements the initial step of every project. This is key in designing a roadmap that is shared with our customer, to make sure that all his requirements are properly addressed. The relationship between Axians and our customer is managed through a single point of contact, with the responsibility of managing all aspects of the project and deliverables: timeframe, budget, technology options, scalability and overall management of the implementation.
Proven reporting tools are leveraged to help with the proper project implementation, so as to increase customer satisfaction through delivering up-to-date visibility on work progresses, even for remote projects.
Design & Construction
Selection of relevant equipment and resources
Through a comprehensive offering, that includes maintenance services for multiple technologies, Axians has built up valuable expertise in ICT. Such expertise provides exceptional knowledge to select the resources that best fit our customer’s requirements.
Tailored solutions - Design
Business consultancy and technical surveys constitute the core of Axians’ historical business. Such services offer full visibility on how organizations use and leverage technologies. This is the right path for benefiting from customizing solutions rather than accepting unsuitable commodity products. Customization requires to question the project appropriately: what are the technical, human and budgetary constraints? What are the relevant solutions? Axians provides the appropriate answers as a result of targeted missions:
- Audit (survey, technical feasibility, recommendations) and assistance to project owner
- Survey, assessment and selection of the most relevant technologies
- Technical and functional specifications
Solutions and systems design and integration
Step-by-step process monitoring
Once the project design step is completed and appropriate resources are selected, Axians will be involved throughout the development of an ICT network infrastructure, indoors and/or outdoors.
For example, when deploying mobile networks, Axians can leverage the expertise of property negotiators in charge of identifying the right plots and elevated points that help provide wide mobile coverage expected by a mobile service provider for a specific area. They also manage all construction and operations agreements with landowners, with the goal to achieve the best performances.
Axians can carry out all civil engineering works required to set up a passive network infrastructure, as well as networks themselves (cables, access points, antennas, …). We can also cater to auxiliary infrastructure such as power supply, air conditioning or alarms that guarantee optimal operations of the deployment.
At each step of the project, Axians manages and coordinates with all technical teams that may get involved. From heavy handling and lifting (crane operations, helicopter transportation, nacelle…) to electrical compliance certificates, we deliver in an efficient and rigorous way, while ensuring safety for all workers and goods.
Deployment & Commissioning
Tailored solutions – Implementation and integration
Axians has tied up strong partnerships with ICT vendors and has earned many certifications that provide evidence of the highest levels of expertise when it comes to integration.
Integration projects turn successful only if proven methodologies are implemented. This requires paying attention to the early survey and consulting stages, then integrating the different modules that give birth to your solution:
- Integration and configuration of the technology constituents of your solution
- Proof of Concept, to validate the relevance of the solution
- Acceptance testing
- Training and support to users
Knowledge transfer is a priority and will be achieved to help users improve their expertise.
Communication networks integration
Axians provides all required services, from project planning to specific developments, add-on applications, integration testing and PoCs. Axians leverages a proven methodology to integrate all technologies required for communication networks.
Storage often relies on multivendor environments, as businesses call upon the expertise of different players to support their increasing requirements in storage. Axians’ goal is to help those businesses regain visibility across their environments, by banking on an integration process that extends the life of existing storage resources while maximizing their rate of utilization.
Managed Services & Support

Network Operations Center
Any system failure could have a heavy impact on business processes and even make them unavailable. The Network Operations Center (NOC) is Axians’ nerve center in the organization that proactively fixes such failures, before it can have any impact on users. The NOC is available on a 24/7 basis, to monitor networks, proceed with maintenance tasks and upgrades, or even recover from network and application failures. This monitoring can be deployed on site or remotely.
Service Level Agreement
A Service Level Agreement spells out the level of quality that applies to support and maintenance services provided by Axians. Each agreement is specific to a customer, his environment and his requirements. Yet, they all share the same goal: outsource to Axians all network monitoring operations. This is achieved with confidence since customers benefit from a regular reporting that puts them in control of their infrastructure.
Management of network performances
Monitoring of network events, availability of testing, load and error simulation, and more: Axians can carry out all operations that ensure top-notch performances for business processes, and that all customer requirements are met.
