The summer of upgrades continues for VETRO FiberMap! This month we’re pleased to introduce two exciting updates to the product aimed at helping users better visualize and manage their fiber networks. From a new fiber path table that makes understanding and actioning the connectivity of your network simpler than ever to the ability to instantly draw perfect lines between features as they appear in the real world, this release is all about helping you better manage your network and free up time to work smarter. Let’s have a look!
Fiber Path Table: Optimized Network Design, Troubleshooting, and Identification from a Single Source
The fiber path table is an intuitive interface into VETRO’s powerful connectivity model, designed for network professionals seeking to optimize their fiber network management. It provides in-app visibility of fiber paths and circuits, allowing for seamless data manipulation, enhanced export options, and detailed insights into the physical layout and connections within your network. It also allows for batch circuit creation from within the app, dramatically speeding up the circuit creation process.
The fiber path table simplifies several workflows within VETRO, including identifying customers impacted by maintenance events or outages, planning new connections, and making informed decisions about network design and optimization – all within a single source of truth!
Quick Route: Radically Simpler Line Drawing in FiberMap
Quick route is a game changer for fiber network design and management. Designed with network engineers, project managers, and GIS specialists in mind, it revolutionizes the mapping process by automating the creation of perfectly coincident lines between two points, leveraging the routes of what has already been designed. Quick route not only significantly enhances accuracy and efficiency, but also improves visualization when combined with an offset line mode for easier viewing.
Quick route intelligently leverages VETRO’s data pipeline to generate routes using existing network lines. It helps you reduce errors when drawing lines on the map and more easily track which cables are in which conduits. Gone are the days of accidentally missing a feature when drawing your fiber network on the map.
The bottom line: with quick route, you can spend less time clicking and more time strategizing! To throw some numbers at you with a real world example, when drawing a network of lateral cables connecting a cabinet to 20 FATs, quick route reduces the number of clicks needed to draw this by up to 90%, and reduces the overall time spent drawing your network by approximately 70%.
VETRO builds software that makes it radically simpler and faster for broadband providers to plan, design, build, and operate their fiber optic networks. Our map-based SaaS platform is easier to use and more powerful than traditional tools, and enables network owners, operators and sponsors to benefit from a modern, integrated, and connected digital hub for their physical network assets.
