The PoleOS™ Company

IKE for Communications Companies

Accelerate broadband deployments with actionable network insights.


Across North America, communications companies are working hard to expand their networks and bring broadband services to over 30 million Americans who don’t yet have it. Advanced pole data and analysis can help speed up every stage of the build-out process.

Helping you tackle pain points and connect customers faster.

Faster market assessments

Leveraging existing pole lines to expand your network is attractive but has its challenges.

IKE helps you assess market viability and estimate make-ready needs by translating large data sets and existing imagery into action.

  • Reduce pre-survey work
  • Create cross-platform workflows
  • Identify an optimal route

Streamlined workflows

Inefficient workflows hinder both productivity and the integrity of the network design process.

Using cloud-based workflows, pole data acquired in the field with IKE is seamlessly uploaded to a central system where it can be accessed by authorized partners and exported into downstream applications.

  • Standardize data for easy sharing
  • Provide real-time data access to all stakeholders
  • Icon for Permits Automate pole attachment applications

Fielder efficiency

The longer it takes to collect pole data, the longer it will be before your network can reach new customers.

With IKE, a solo field worker collects pole data from a safe distance, avoiding the hazards and delays of accessing roads and backyards.

  • Improve situational awareness and safety
  • Automate repetitive tasks to reduce employee fatigue
  • Improve time-per-pole rates

Reduced recollections

Having to return to the field due to an error can cripple a project’s profitability.

IKE empowers fielders to collect accurate data with minimal training using intuitive mobile tools and guided workflows.

  • Leverage auto-validation to prevent upload errors
  • Digitize workflows to eliminate manual data entry
  • Modify field data entries without a revisit
