Horrocks Technology Limited

Consultants in process development and telecommunications technology, standards and regulations

For 24 years since leaving OFTEL, where he was Deputy Technical Director, John Horrocks has been consulting in telecommunications technology, standards and regulations and specialising in future Trends, VoIP, Internet and Next Generation Networks (NGN), Numbering and Number Portability, Interconnection, Quality of Service (QoS).

He has frequently provided support and expertise transfer to regulators outside UK and prepared consultation documents, regulations and specifications for them. He focuses on solutions that are both theoretically sound and work effectively in practice, because
many regulatory approaches can fail if they do not fit the technical and operational scenarios properly.

He also runs in-house training courses in VoIP and Number Portability.

New Focus on Process Development and cloud solutions
In 2014 he developed jointly with Jeremy Rochot a “cloud based” number portability database for the regulator in Bermuda using the RunMyProcess platform. John and Jeremy used the “Interactive Development” method, which they are pioneering, and developed the database in record time and and with very low development and running costs. The running costs are at least a factor of 10 lower than those of the more traditional number portability databases.

John and Jeremy are now offering to undertake specialist bespoke process developments for clients using this method. You can read the Case Study on the Bermuda development HERE and you can read about the Iterative Development method HERE.
