Integrated design, construction and telecom network management

By Justin Reid on Nov 2, 2021 6:08:13 PM

As existing network operators and alternative network (AltNet) start-ups push the boundaries of FTTH project scale and speed of deployment, all aspects of a network lifecycle are being scrutinized for operational efficiencies. With a goal to be 'first-to-market', underserved towns and villages will soon have gigabit speed broadband options with incumbent providers or fast-moving AltNets, both of whom are planning, designing and construction at velocities never seen before. Within the UK market, providers are reviewing how to break-down the data and workflow silos that have previously existed between Engineering and Construction. The core theme in these initiatives is to drive GIS alignment between all stakeholders, both internal as well as within the contractor community.

To support the stakeholder collaboration and project milestones, new GIS-based tools and technology ecosystems are forming as operators are looking for operational advantages to achieve the controls, reporting and return on capital investment of deploying lightning speed broadband fast, first and with absolute project control. One such, very quickly expanding, UK alternative network provider (named confidential for competitive positioning) evaluated and brought together Best-In-Class GIS-based tools to seamlessly bridge the design-build-maintain phases of their 250M£ network build.

Vitruvi Software and KeyCom by Keypro have been deployed to date. In the near future the solutions will provide full system-to-system data exchange. Fully featured designs are ingested into Vitruvi for survey and construction build with completed as-built data and close-offs then exported into KeyCom for network management. The key to this workflow success if interoperability between system APIs and the core GIS capabilities of both technology platforms.

About Vitruvi:

Developed by an industry team that has “lived the problem” of deploying complex network projects, Vitruvi Software is an innovative end-to-end telecom construction management platform that modernizes construction operations, drives cost savings and increases accuracy in data reporting. Linking directly to network design and PNI tools, Vitruvi removes the barriers between engineering/construction data and workflows. By aggregating designs, documents, photos, schedules, as well as financial and construction production data, all project stakeholders can access a true single source-of-truth and maintain real-time visibility into build status. Vitruvi is available on desktop and on mobile Android and iOS devices. Discover more at www.vitruvisoftware.com.

Fibre GIS for UK operator needs

By Toni Paila on Aug 24, 2021 1:00:01 PM

In the United Kingdom many existing and new communications providers are planning their fibre network deployments utilizing the British Telecom's available ducts. BT's Openreach makes this possible via Physical Infrastructure Access (PIA) service. The service has evolved from a map based view to a web service that securely allows communication providers to access the duct and other infrastructure data such as joint boxes, poles and manholes. Soon the service will allow also handling of Notices of Intent (NOI).

Keypro is serving several communication providers in the UK with the KeyCom GIS and network information solution. To meet the needs of the UK market, Keypro has developed interface to the Openreach PIA service. The communications provider using KeyCom can request the PIA data that is then made available in the Keypro's GIS and network information solution KeyCom. Only two steps are needed to get this working. First, the communications provider needs to complete the PIA API onboarding with Openreach. Keypro can assist or even complete the onboarding if the operator so wants. Once completed, Keypro will install operator's own API to KeyCom and the PIA feature is activated.

Openreach PIA data is useful in the KeyCom GIS system in many ways. It supports network planning and serves as reference. The PIA infrastrucure data can be displayed in the familiar Openreach style, or if the communications provider so wants, it can be themed in a different way to meet the need of the end users. For the benefit of British communications providers Keypro also includes relevant open Ordnance Survey Data Hub and OpenStreetMap data in KeyCom to complement the system for the background maps usage.

The Importance of Technical Collaboration

By Toni Paila on Jun 29, 2021 11:17:30 AM

Fibre optical network operators have a lot to decide when they start to build or extend their network. Besides the necessary infrastructure investments, there is lot to consider in terms of software and services solutions that support fibre rollout. Growing operators will need to select tools for planning, building, documenting, and finally operating the network. In fact, each of these main lifecycle stages breaks down into further details, making the list of decisions even longer. In addition, the network operators need to decide how to run activities to support very diverse stakeholder needs, such as working with contractors, reporting to authorities, and protecting their network from accidental digging related damages.

Under the burden of many decisions to make, the growing network operators often find themselves in a situation where they need to select tools now. These selections will have a major impact on the future decisions that they can make. The market situation does not make this easier either – there are dozens of software solutions and providers to select from. This is reminiscent of piling up parts from various dealers and assembling a working car by yourself. We often hear operators asking: “Is there any way to reduce risks and costs deriving from all these decisions?”

To address the challenge and to make the life of a network operator much easier, forward looking solution providers have decided to collaborate. The key to collaboration lies in two main principles. Firstly, the solutions must be compatible. By compatible we mean that the solutions interoperate either in real time over an interface or share a common data format in a way that is perfectly understood and maintained at all times. Secondly, the solutions must come with customer service. No integration is perfectly suited to all situations out of box. There are always bits and pieces that need tinkering to satisfy a specific customer’s needs. The eagerness and ability to serve these customers under the time and budget pressure is what sets apart a true service from a mere a software product.

At Keypro we are proud to say that we have lived and experienced all of this. And we have a wonderful team of like-minded software providers to complement our network inventory and GIS solutions. Our KeyCom GIS and network information solution is interoperable with Setics' automated planning solution, Vitruvi's field operations solution and PacketFront's active network provisioning and orchestration solution. And via our actively expanding JSON/REST API framework we are adding new team members as we speak.

We invite all fibre operators to join our team and get the fruits of the collaboration. That is, interoperability and dedication to serve your operations no matter which size you are and where you are located.
