Optus to Nokia Network Transition


Project Overview 

Nokia undertook a large-scale Optus network transition program to transfer people, assets and systems from the existing Optus network environment and incumbent suppliers into Nokia’s managed services. 

The Transition program consists of three main streams of work: Field work stream, Network Operation Centre work stream and OSS work stream. 


TBH’s Role 

The Optus-Nokia transition required an experienced scheduling expert to be engaged on the Transition program to provide coverage of services across both organisations within Australia and India. 

TBH built a detailed and robust Master Schedule to act as a single source of information to reflect the capturing, planning and tracking of activities for the delivery of the Transition. 

In addition, TBH were also involved in establishing and maintaining the following: 

  • Project on a Page (PoP) reporting: utilising a combination of Microsoft Project, Excel and Visio to inform Optus and Nokia executives on the progress of the Genesis Transition Program
  • Joint Risk and Issues register: which linked into dependencies within the Master Schedule to inform the project team of the impact pain points and potential delays to activity completion
  • Weekly status meetings with stream leads from both Nokia and Optus to update the Master Schedule.

These updates would feed into the PoP reports and Steering Committee reports which were also issued respectively on a weekly and monthly basis
