Accelerate Broadband Deployments with an Optimized Joint-Use Process

March 7, 2024 at 3 PM ET

Time to market is critical when expanding broadband networks to new customers. Fast and accurate surveys, data analysis, and approvals accelerate your project deployment timeline and revenues.

In this webinar, IKE’s experts will discuss how to expand to new markets faster using data acquisition and analysis solutions that help communications companies and their engineering partners to:

1) Rapidly evaluate potential new markets for broadband deployment with reduced pre-survey effort using street view imagery.

2) Efficiently acquire pole data and upload it to a central home where it can be accessed by all authorized partners involved in a joint-use project.

3) Speed up approvals through seamless integration with other applications and tools including GIS systems, design software, pole loading and asset management software, and all sorts of file types. Reduce or eliminate manual data entry when working with multiple tools and applications in the end-to-end permitting process.

Plan. Measure. Deploy. 

Learn how to optimize your market assessment, broadband deployment, and joint-use process.

Additional topics to be covered include:

  • Challenges communications companies and their engineering partners face in assessing the overhead distribution grid for broadband expansion to new markets
  • How accurate data helps communications firms speed up overhead construction and expand service to new customers
  • An overview of IKE’s suite of fiber deployment & joint-use solutions: IKE Insight (Process Automation solution)  the IKE Device and IKE Office Pro (data acquisition and management solution) 
  • Complying with the NESC and ensuring worker safety during construction
