Business Planning

We have the knowledge, and we're ready to travel! In addition to insightful market/city evaluations, we:

  • Identify and map IXC, POP and LEC central office locations
  • Analyze city geography and routing considerations

We also assess Right of Way (ROW) conditions and restrictions, availability and guidelines; and evaluate city planning, implementation and build-out objectives necessary to deploy the network.

Then, based on your specific business objectives, Unicorn Communications will define operating and network assumptions for target cities and evaluate facility routing plans. We'll propose a network layout, and based on that, we'll estimate CAPEX cost for fiber, wireless local loop, copper, SONET and switching and transport equipment, and for data and Internet construction. Using our market assessments, we'll develop revenue and operating expense assumptions, project business services and access line volume. We'll also develop price margins and cost of goods sold based on competitive and regulatory factors, along with staffing plans and operating expense requirements.
