TM R&D Successfully Handover of U-CAST to Access Development Team

On the 14th April 2017, - TM R&D organized a completed project handover ceremony to custodian. The Universal Copper Analysis System (U-CAST) project was handed over successfully to the Access Development (AD) team. En. Zakaria Ahmad, General Manager Communication Technologies represented TM R&D while AD team was represented by General Manager AD, En. Abdullah Zawawi.

U-CAST was designed to be integrated with TM Network Information System (NIS) for automatic Distribution Point (DP) speed tagging by Access Network Development (AND) team nationwide and can be monitored online by AD staff across the country. 

The system helps operation by supporting upselling through copper pre-qualification process and currently there are about 26 thousand of DPs (or Distribution Points) being tagged using U-CAST.

"Previously, the potential line speed can only be measured for existing customers, making it difficult for us to upsell higher packages to new customers as were unable to estimate the best speed that our copper line could provide until they are connected to our network. With U-CAST the copper line speed can be estimated without the need to hook up with a modem. Therefore, we are able to upsell the maximum package to our customers immediately. The U-CAST system is easy to deploy and I hope it can be further enhanced to support many other related issues involving copper network. Thanks TM R&D!! You make our life easier!!" - AGM, Access Development, Network Delivery, Mohd YusairiI Abu Hassan.
