Project Development

What can you do with what you have, and what more might you need? 

Our service offerings range from project inception to final close-out.  We can assist with all aspects of design & cost estimates through construction, to implementing a total network management package and processes.  We help establish the network & data you will need to efficiently offer advanced services - while maintaining existing service.

 

MSC project services complement our engineering services. Mid-State clients are able to leverage our experience and expertise while realizing the cost benefits of not having to "gear up" or re-assign internal personnel.  That said, we do want our client’s engineering & operating personnel to be involved in the design & network build-out, so that any project benefits from their experience and expertise also.  And any handover period is brief and efficient. 

Our goal once the network is built is to fade away smoothly – unless or until there may be a reason for us to be involved in any troubleshooting, or ongoing additional network development.

Regulatory Services

Regulatory Compliance

Is among the most burdensome tasks a company faces. Changes to the regulatory landscape have increased steadily in the last several years, in both quantity and complexity, and all signs point to this trend continuing. Mid-State keeps a watchful eye on all the latest developments, and our Regulatory Services offerings can assist your company in staying up-to-date and in compliance.
