Cambridge, 8 February 2024 - IQGeo (AIM: IQG), a developer of geospatial software that is “Building better networks” for telecom and utility operators, today announced that it has extended the industry-leading fiber management capabilities of its Network Manager Telecom product to also support copper and coaxial networks.
This marks a significant change for telecom operators with mixed technology infrastructures, as they can now simplify their system landscape to a single management platform and replace their legacy system of record.
“We’re incredibly excited about the continued flexibility we’re delivering for telecom operators,” says Richard Petti, CEO for IQGeo. “We’ve consistently learned from fiber operators that IQGeo’s biggest value is offering a shared platform to manage their lifecycle, from planning, design and construction to operations, sales and marketing. With this new release, we now provide one platform for all technology infrastructure used by telecom networks.”
The latest version of Network Manager Telecom adds new data models for copper and coaxial networks to the existing fiber model, with the ability to document and manage all associated equipment. This is just part of the most recent enhancements of IQGeo’s flexible and comprehensive network management features, which include industry-best field mobility, documenting outside and inside plant inventory, dynamic network schematics, seamless data imports and exports, and labor cost management.
“As with any IQGeo product release, we’ve gone a step further than introducing new network models,” adds Petti. “We’ve also introduced new workflow functionality, such as line of count support for mixed architecture networks and intuitive views of cable-to-equipment relationships.”
“This is simply the latest step in giving our customers the flexibility they need to manage complex network deployments and operations, which is helping them accelerate their time to value and maximize return on investment.”
