Fiberside Chat: GIS Brings A Better View of Fiber Network Deployment

 

GIS technology’s application in the telecom industry over the past decade has been vast. Just ask Julia Teply, Product Solutions Specialist at 3-GIS.

Teply’s experienced the changes and growth in GIS technology use and adoption firsthand, and she dropped by Fiberside Chat to share her thoughts on the exciting developments happening with GIS as more and more 5G projects kick into high gear.

“GIS is the standard right now for fiber network design,” Teply said. “It allows telecom companies to scale their projects across multiple markets and vendors quickly, as well as increase their speed to market.”

Teply’s current workload includes a large-scale fiber-optic project that spans across 70 markets and more than 20 different vendors.

Some of the advantages of utilizing GIS in today’s fiber network design is in the technology’s adaptability and scalability, which aids in both high-level and low-level automation.

“You can customize GIS not only for design, but for other business needs, as well,” Teply said.

The design improvements GIS provides helps standardize 5G networks. which are beginning to expand nationwide.

“We are leaving additional conduit and fiber cable to expand upon the network when the time comes to upgrade to 6G,” Teply said.

The flexibility and adaptability of the design utilizing GIS will make the transition to 6G easier than the previous transition from 4G to 5G.
