Benefits of Managing Fiber Optic Data in GIS

Benefits of Managing Fiber Optic Data in GIS

A GIS, known as a Geographic Information System, lets companies and organizations view, analyze, and understand data in ways that reveal patterns, relationships, and trends. GIS benefits organizations of all sizes and in almost every industry. Companies who are able to manage fiber optic data in GIS find that this way of managing data offers them many benefits such as the ones outlined below:

GIS Leverages Existing Infrastructure Data:

Telecom GIS data and fiber GIS data give insight into the existing telecommunications landscape so that companies can assess the current infrastructure. Whether they are analyzing the effects of a fiber network expansion, searching for new routes to direct Internet traffic due to a natural disaster, or deciding where to build an office building to satisfy connectivity requirements, a GIS helps companies to analyze the current telecom and fiber infrastructure.

Improves System Analysis:

When data is displayed visually, such as in a GIS-based environment or a fiber network map, it becomes much easier to understand, analyze, and even combine with other data sets. This in turn makes for more efficient system analysis, and therefore more timely decision making.

Web-Based GIS Allows Company-Wide Access to the Data in One Place:

With a web-based GIS product, many different departments within a company can access the data and use it in various applications including engineering, operations, research & development, marketing, finance, and planning.

GeoTel Communications’ web-based GIS product, called Teletracker, offers online database access to 12 telecommunications data sets and over 1,300 other regularly updated data sets. From a single interface users can access, visualize, and report on all available information to quickly clarify a variety of scenarios.
