Do you have live telecom sites with unidentified hardware consuming power and costing you excessive OPEX? Not sure?
TXO Systems can give you the answer. Our on-site identification services are used to reduce OPEX by identifying and cataloguing redundant infrastructure, particularly if the hardware is traffic-free but still consuming power and therefore wasting your money.
We will conduct a full audit of all infrastructure currently deployed within your sites. This will cover items such as:
- Health and safety risk assessments
- Type of equipment (manufacturer and platform)
- Number of cabinets, subracks, cards, power units, fan trays, etc.
From this survey TXO Systems will compile a detailed report containing information including rack identities, full OEM part numbers of all active infrastructure, quantities of parts, re-sale potential of the live inventory and recycling revenues and costs. For some customers, this service alone fulfils their requirements. For others, they opt for our de-installation service.
If the survey leads to a de-installation project we will go further with our on-site identification assessment, including:
- How the cabinets are fixed to the wall and floor
- Length of bolts and how much work is required to cut bolts, etc.
- Cabling to the cabinets (i.e. are cables able to be cut rather than removed and do they still have power running into them?)
- Access to and from the site (i.e. where in the building is the equipment, how far away is it from a lift/loading bay and is there sufficient clearance to extract the hardware?)
- And more
With a de-installation project there are several possible outcomes for your equipment, to ensure you recover the maximum residual value:
TXO can remarket equipment to our extensive network of purchasers from global OEMs, operators, enterprises and trade sales. Every item will undergo thorough refurbishment before it is resold.
If you have a need for the deinstalled telecom hardware, a benefit of the consignment model is that you can recall parts for your own reuse purposes. You will have full visibility and control of your parts via the i-TRAC customer portal.
TXO maintain a sustainable approach to de-installations, where possible we would like to recycle locally rather than transport scrap materials. All items are disposed of safely and responsibly, in line with regulatory legislation.
However, we understand that not all customers wish to take this route. Some find value in storing the de-installed equipment until a later point in time. This is where our warehousing service comes in.
With over 135,000 Sq Ft/12,500 m² across our global locations, we take pride in the considerable warehousing space TXO provides. Our huge sites enable us to store thousands of parts comfortably for our customers, at attractive rates. Visit our warehousing facilities news article to find additional detail.
