In his role as 3-GIS CTO, his philosophy towards software propels the development of applications designed for innate user adoption and modularity, and scalability.AbstractFiber first and faster The increasing pace of developing new network technologies means that network providers, managers, and engineers need to document and manage new and complex information, but methods for meeting these needs have yet to be addressed in most existing network management systems.
In this presentation, 3-GIS' Tommy Siniard discusses how tier I service providers are taking the next step in physical network management by providing solutions that improve the speed of the network planning and construction while creating accurate and complete OSP geodatabase that can be leveraged throughout the service providers' business and operational systems.
Over the next few years, service providers will deploy millions of fiber strands with hundreds of thousands of splices and network components. The fiber network to support 5G is and will continue to be so much more complicated than what legacy engineering tools can build or what the traditional NOC applications can support.
