Telecom Solutions

The DTSI Telecommunications division provides Engineer, Furnish, Install and Test (EFI&T) services to the U.S. Government community. We possess a broad range of systems integration capabilities and augment our service packages through strategic partnerships and an extensive portfolio of service providers and equipment providers. The DTSI Telecommunications division primarily focuses on wireless transport and delivery networks including: Digital Microwave, Land Mobile Radio (LMR) and Wifi but additionally provides engineering for Inside and Outside Plant design.

Providing Solutions:

At DTSI we maintain an ongoing and growing capability to meet the ever changing needs of the US Government community we support. Our operational posture allows us to perform against telecommunications projects of various size and scope with the technical expertise to develop solutions that always meet and often exceed Government requirements. Our service offering is built around the concept of meeting any demand encountered with an adequate and timely response.
 
DTSI operates under a philosophy that the US Government agencies we support are more than just our customers, they are our ongoing partners and as such we take an active role in understanding their needs and developing solutions that many times go beyond initial requirements without increasing cost. DTSI has been recognized by our US Government customers on numerous occasions for offering comprehensive solutions to complex problems that exceeded expectations and provided needed capabilities that had not been considered.  

While we are prepared to support fill turnkey EFI&T projects of significant size we also stand ready to take on the smaller projects that can be just as important to the mission critical operational needs of our Government customers. DTSI is prepared to support any portion of a telecommunications implementation project from site survey to final commissioning and acceptance testing. Our field operations team consists of technical expertise of various skill sets and levels affording us the ability to be responsive to developing and changing requirements.
 

DTSI Services:

Site Survey

DTSI provides a full range of site survey services designed to capture a comprehensive set of data to support all aspects of the design and implementation components of a telecommunication implementation project.
  • Physical Site Survey
  • Post Survey Report
  • Microwave Path Survey

 

Data Collection Documentation

Many companies perform site surveys based on a standard document and, more often than not, find gap areas during the follow-on design processes. At DTSI, we believe in flexibility, allowing us to match-up our site survey documentation to the requirements set forth by our customers. We start with a baseline document and go through a document editing process that satisfies both the objectives of our customer as well as our own internal requirements.

Physical Site Survey

Far too often, the site survey process is treated like a race against the clock in an effort to increase profitability. At DTSI, it is mandated that all site surveys will be performed in a manner that allows for the collection of all data specific to the site that may be useful in support of follow-on design and implementation processes. A DTSI team will always remain on site for the entire duration scheduled for the survey, unless our customers request otherwise. Our site survey teams are comprised of individuals that have knowledge and expertise that appropriately suits the purpose of the site survey to be performed. We do not believe in a one-size-fits-all process.

Post Survey Report

Many companies consider a completed site survey data collection sheet as the final report. At DTSI, we understand that there is a great amount of information gleaned during the survey process that does not always make it to the data collection sheet. This additional information must be properly communicated to the individuals responsible for the follow-on design work in order to create a solution that is comprehensive and complete. At the completion of each site survey, a final site survey written report will accompany completed data sheets, drawings, and photographs that will clearly outline deficiencies and all relevant site information.

Microwave Path Survey

DTSI also provides microwave path surveys to support the design process for new microwave paths or for existing path design validation. The services can be provided independently or rolled into our full site survey service offering.
