Verax Network Infrastructure Project Management enables complete control over every aspect of network infrastructure projects, (such as fiber and wireless backhaul site build outs, fiber-to-the tower, microwave backhaul, cellsite rollout, etc.), from new site build outs, provisioning, testing to customer handover & billing.

The application facilitates efficient and effective collaboration of project teams as well as the execution of entire business process flows via seamless integration with other Verax or third party applications, such as Service Desk or Network Management System.

  • Reduce delivery times and meet project deadlines: dedicated project management software for network infrastructure projects: backhaul, cell-site, fiber tower, etc.
  • Start quickly with predefined project templates.
  • Improve decision making: accurately report progress (e.g. Gantt charts), use built-in and custom business reports.
  • Gain control through central information repository eliminating spreadsheets.
