by: Glenn Milnes

IKE is proud to announce our acquisition of key assets of Powerline Technology (PLT). 

Together, IKE & PLT provide unparalleled industry thought leadership, technical expertise, and training specific to pole projects and network deployments. 

PLT’s flagship product, PoleForeman, is one of the three industry-accepted pole loading analysis (PLA) software solutions in North America.  IKE has integrated its software with Pole Foreman for many years. 

With the introduction of the IKE Analyze solution, IKE’s focus has extended the customer experience further across the pole value chain.  More than just field data collection, IKE Analyze provides a complete solution that addresses our customer’s entire workflow; field data collection, analysis, and management of poles and projects.  

IKE Analyze also fully integrates with and supports other PLA products, such as SpidaCalc and OCalc Pro.

PLA software provides information about the structural integrity of poles. This is increasingly required due to increasing communications infrastructure rollouts, joint use management for existing pole assets, network hardening initiatives, and increased regulatory oversight. 

IKE … IKE provides industry leading solutions to empower communications companies, utilities, and their contractors to create pole records more efficiently and use them more effectively throughout all aspects of their business.

PLT… PowerLine Technology develops engineering software for utility poles to help meet today’s demand for increased productivity, accuracy and efficiency in the pole engineering space. Whether classing poles, determining guy wire tensions, or calculating clearances, PLT has the software tools to help get the job done.
