The integrity of both long-haul fiber and metro fiber can be challenged by external factors like road and construction activity that cuts both the fiber and the conduit protecting it. That’s why 9 of the top 10 Telecom companies* use UtiliSphere irthnet in their damage prevention efforts.
Built with an operational focus on telecom and related industries, UtiliSphere Intelligence Center can help leverage both historical and current data to identify trends and take preemptive actions to reduce damages. In high-risk corridors, this can mean fewer damages, reduced costs and better uptime for customers.
Recoup Costs for Damages
Even with the best processes and technology, damages still occur. Managing damages and claims is often a manual, labor-intensive process, delaying (or preventing!) organizations from recouping costs. UtiliSphere Incident Tracker enables companies to centrally document and manage all activities related to a fiber-cutting incident, such as excavation damages and other accidents that can slow or disrupt the network.
Empower the Field
It’s no surprise that mobile technology is helping all types of organizations – including telecommunications companies – to be more efficient. UtiliSphere Mobile enables route technicians to gather more accurate, real-time data with or without an Internet connection.
UtiliSphere uMonitor empowers field operations teams to more efficiently document standbys and other monitoring activities around critical areas and infrastructure, such as vital fiber lines delivering connectivity to high-population areas and hospitals.
