Layer Permissions

Your network map is your “digital master” for your business; it’s important to minimize unauthorized access, prevent mistakes, and keep sensitive data private. That’s why we’re excited to announce a new FiberMap feature: Layer Permissions!

Layer Permissions allows an admin user to control who has access to view, create, update and delete the layers in a VETRO instanc.



FCC National Broadband Map

Major development in the telecom world this past month with the release of the FCC’s National Broadband Map.

The next big wave of state broadband grant funds will be allocated based on this data map.
