IQGeo wins $3.6m deal in US to fast-track fibre roll-out
Cambridge geospatial software star IQGeo is celebrating a major coup in the US – a handsome $3.6 million three-year contract.
The AIM-quoted company’s fibre planning, design and field survey software has been chosen by one of the largest US telecom network operators to accelerate its fibre construction process.
The automated planning, design, and field survey solution from IQGeo will optimise, standardise, and digitally transform the planning and design workflow of this new customers’ ambitious nationwide fibre rollout.
IQGeo was chosen after an exhaustive evaluation that demonstrated significant time, cost and resource savings in the space.
Its software will play a key role in one of the largest FTTx and 5G build outs in the US, supporting millions of new customers in communities across the country.
IQGeo technology will be used by the customer to rapidly generate automated plans for new fibre deployments, which are verified on the ground with field walkouts using the mobile capabilities of the Cambridge company’s software.
The process creates initial designs with field input which are used to generate final designs that are then passed to the engineering team to plan construction activities.
This fully integrated digital solution will streamline processes to alleviate inefficient resource bottlenecks and data silos by providing a common planning, design, and field walkout platform for internal staff and external contractors.
CEO Richard Petti said: “We are pleased to have been selected by one of the world’s largest telecoms operators to partner on such an important project.
“This initial production deployment provides significant room for growth in the future and is an excellent example of how our strong technology and talented team are securing long-term contracts with Tier 1 operators around the world.”
