Street Level Data reduces the cost of designing, building and maintaining fiber networks
To reduce the likelihood of negative outcomes, communication service providers (CSPs) historically send crews to visit and survey locations to gather ground truth “lay of the land.” This traditional method is an expensive and time-consuming process. It is difficult to implement in the design phase, particularly when using automated design solutions. Moreover, manual data gathering and field surveys can introduce new errors through inaccurate and incomplete information.
However, there are proven technologies that can help CSPs not just reduce but avoid these worse-case scenarios as well as significantly cut design, build and maintenance costs of FTTx networks. These technologies are based on geospatial data, with accuracies in the fractions of inches. And by using this data to increase its knowledge, CSPs can gain a competitive advantage and a faster time to market.
