Planning & Engineering

Design and build networks more efficiently

Communication service providers (CSPs) need new tools to help them be more strategic in their planning and engineering; reduce time to market through remote engineering; and maintain better project operational awareness as they invest and build-out 5G, DOCIS 4.0, software-defined networks (SDN), and expanded fiber to deliver next gen networks. Esri's ArcGIS technology provides the essential tools to identify market opportunities and assess existing capacity, helping decision-makers invest where they can maximize their return on investment (ROI). With ArcGIS you get one complete real-time network view to manage network build-outs from planning, to design, to construction, to as-built.
