VETRO FiberMap, a provider of software solutions for the fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) industry, announced the availability of the its Network Mapping Platform for small to mid-sized Internet service providers (ISPs) and community broadband networks. The solution provides a cloud-based platform to help ISPs plan, design, cost, build, market, manage, and operate their networks. It's designed to deliver real time network mapping to leadership, engineering, marketing and all departments through any web browser.
"As we worked with dozens of communications companies over many years, we found that small and mid-sized ISPs have a common set of mapping needs as they deploy their fiber networks," said VETRO FiberMap co-founder Will Mitchell. "Legacy network inventory mapping tools are too big, too complex, and too expensive for them. They wind up using using Google Earth for maps and spreadsheets for strands and circuits, but they really struggle to bring all of this data together and share information across their business efficiently. We've built this platform specifically for these companies so that they can now work from one common fiber network mapping and fiber management database."
"Not only do we support demand identification, market planning, and ROI modeling, but engineering needs are also well covered in a unique and powerful combination. Our easy digitizing and network layout tools support flexible engineering designs. ISPs can move quickly from design to construction, generate BOMs, and share designs in GIS-ready formats. Open APIs and cloud management make the solution easy to integrate, customize, and maintain, while providing secure access to critical data to all departments and partners," said VETRO FiberMap co-founder Sean Myers.
