“Fiber done faster”

ikeGPS is in business to help communication companies deploy fiber and wireless networks faster, safer and more efficiently… Anytime a communication company determines it needs space on a utility pole we’re there with them and their contractors from field data collection through to permitting so that they can get new attachments approved faster, move to construction faster and ultimately get to revenue faster.

We accomplish this with IKE Analyze, a solution that enhances and accelerates your deployments by improving on three key components of design and permitting. The solution is broken up into three pieces: Field Data Collection, Analysis, and Deliverables.

Field Data Collection

The first component is Field Data Collection. IKE Analyze leverages the IKE hardware to improve efficiency and safety in the field. The IKE is a unique, ruggedized Android-based device that integrates a high-resolution digital camera, survey-grade GPS, compass, inclinometer, sunlight-readable screen and simple to use smartphone-like app. IKE is the only integrated measurement device for utility poles that delivers photo verifiable accuracy and consistency while making it easier to scale field data collection resources.

Analysis

The second component consists of the analysis of the data collected. After data has been collected in the field using an IKE its uploaded to the Cloud Pole Analysis Platform where we use automation and highly trained IKE Analysts to perform QA/QC, Mark-up Heights of Attachments, Perform Pole Load Analysis and Make Ready Adjustments and Engineering. We leverage our Pole Analysis Platform to consistently deliver accurate records in less time than the traditional method.

Deliverables

The 3rd component is the deliverables needed for approvals from pole owners and for construction. All the information up to this stage is digital. This ensures consistency and enables us to efficiently produce all the documents and reports needed for permit approval and construction. A couple of things that are unique in the approval process are our IKE Digital Twin and providing pole owners with access to the Cloud Platform so they can visualize all the information they need to accept an application from the comfort, convenience and safety of their office. This helps pole owners approve applications faster.

Come visit us at booth 127 to learn more. We are more than happy to talk through how IKE Analyze could apply to your workflow specifically.
