The client is struggling to keep up with the network demands from their customers. Because of this, there is a lot of legacy equipment/un-used equipment in their transport network. Due to the high demand, the client has to prioritize the revenue-generating activities (and the non-revenue work taking up bandwidth is left sitting in the network). In an effort to optimize the network, they want to recover un-used bandwidth and optimize what's out there.
