GeoTel is the single leading provider of telecommunications infrastructure data and predictive analytics. GeoTel provides the largest, most accurate, and reliable geospatial databases available. These unparalleled and well-researched databases consist of more than 15 telecommunications data sets; including fiber network maps, fiber routes, and fiber-lit buildings. The data is licensed to the client in a geographic information system (GIS) or using GeoTel’s web-based application, TeleTracker. For over 20 years, GeoTel’s products have been providing companies and government agencies with powerful leverage and insight necessary to make intelligent, location-based business decisions.
Research & Collection
Primary sources of data come directly from telecom carriers with secondary support methods of field collection and third-party vendors, along with internet research and freedom of information act requests of assets on public right of ways. This and more go into evolving our data and developing items such as fiber maps.
Digitizing and Mapping
Data is assimilated into a digital format, then digitized in GIS to a high-quality, streets based map. Attributes are appended to the data, then stored as GIS files on secure geospatial servers. This type of data can provide various services, such as helping to locate fiber.
Storage of Data
The digitized data is stored in a geospatial and relational database. The servers hosting the data are located in a Tier III data center. This allows for data to be easily accessible to locate fiber network maps, fiber optic network maps, and more.
To the client
The product is delivered to the customer in GIS files via secured FTP servers. If the customer does not have experience with GIS, they can subscribe to GeoTel’s web-based service, TeleTracker.
GeoTel Communications takes fiber routes from over 1,000 carriers and digitizes them on the highest quality street maps available. This GIS data set allows the user to view carrier fiber maps from a spatial point-of-view in more than 17,900 U.S. cities. To ensure data sets remain current, GeoTel continuously updates the carrier routes and markets.
The “Fiber-Lit Buildings” data set shows which carriers have a fiber presence or have optical switches connected to a fiber loop inside a building. This data set delivers approximately 13,250,000 fiber lit buildings in U.S. markets and has twelve attributes per building. Additionally, a link ID is provided for reporting and database development.
