At Shape we have established a team of experienced highly qualified engineers with high levels of security clearance who are deployed on maintenance contracts throughout the world. They currently operate in some of the most difficult theatres of operation, including Afghanistan, Iraq and Kosovo.
Our client approached Shape for installation and commissioning services for one of the main operators in the UK, as the end customer. Essentially the project entailed installing and testing microwave equipment that had previously been deinstalled, refurbished and tested ready for use again. Key to the success of this project was our ability to cope with significant volumes, some 300 sites, over a limited time period.
KFOR, the Kosovo Force, is a NATO-led international force responsible for establishing and maintaining security in Kosovo. The peace enforcement force entered Kosovo on 12 June 1999. To fulfil its objectives of establishing and maintaining a secure environment in Kosovo, it needed to build and maintain a secure telecommunications network.
