Telecom Expertise

Errigal has taken full advantage of being close to Silicon Valley to attract the best minds in software and we are close to the nerve center of software innovation. We also have attracted people with deep roots in the telecom industry. Among our staff we have many years of system level experience of telecom networks. This experience includes architecting new telecom networks, RF design and implementations, traffic and capacity engineering, fault management, billing and managing large scale telecom projects.

Although we consider ourselves on the cutting edge of software development it is our telecom expertise which sets us above the rest. It is rare to find a team of people that have had deep system design and implementation experience.

That is why we can work collaboratively with our end users since we have first hand experiences of the problems being addressed.

Over the years we have produced cutting edge configuration management, fault management, billing, and performance management systems that have stood the test of time because we are intuitively aware of the issues being addressed by these tools. We are able to automate labor intensive processes because we have had people who have done those processes in the past.
