Software and Services to Support Fiber Optic Network Management

It used to be that documenting a fiber optic network always started with a paper map.

IN 1996 OSPINSIGHT HELPED TO CHANGE THAT.


Decades...

of 

experience

developing software and services to support fiber optic networks.

Hundreds...

of 

companies

depending on OSPINSIGHT to manage their fiber optic networks.

Thousands...

of 

users

interacting with OSPINSIGHT throughout the world to maintain fiber optic networks.

Millions...

of fiber optic 

strands

documented and mapped using OSPINSIGHT.


Whether a single user supporting a small fiber optic network...

...or, hundreds of users maintinaing a global fiber optic network.


Use all of our software applications in an integrated ecosystem...

SALES AND MARKETING


IDENTIFY NEW PROSPECTS AND EFFICIENTLY FOCUS RESOURCES

"Before OSPINSIGHT, Business Intelligence was an oxymoron. Now, my business information with OSPINSIGHT helps me direct my resources to sell services to areas never before imagined."

CLOSE MORE SALES WITH FAST, QUALIFIED PROPOSALS

"Since the engineering group has been using the OSPINSIGHT RFI tool, we get immediate feedback on cost estimates for new proposals. Thus, making it much easier and faster to respond to make a sale."

 

Accounting


ACCURATE AND TIMELY TAX REPORTING

"Determining the number of miles of cable in any given tax zone has been an arduous task. But it is very important... don't want to make the tax man mad! Before OSPINSIGHT I could make a good guress after doing a lot of research. Now, it is almost just pushing the right button."

REDUCE TAX ASSESSMENTS

"We made the argument to the county tax assessor that we only make revenue on Lit fiber and that we did not think it was fair to be taxed on non-lit fiber. The tax assessor told us that if we could show how much lit fiber we had, we would be taxed only on lit fiber. We saved over $70K in taxes in just one county."

 

AVOID PENALTIES

"At times, when the pole owner does an audit and finds we're not on their records, we are assessed a penalty of $65 per pole for not verifying our installation date."

 
 

Management


 

EFFICIENCY - EXPAND WORK

"OSPINSIGHT has not reduced the number of people working in our department, but it has increased the productivity of our people dramatically. What it has done has allowed us to expand our work to cover activities that need to be done but due to the lack of manpower we can't normally do."

 
 

Planning and Design


DRASTICALLY REDUCE MAN HOURS TO ESTIMATE BUILD COSTS

"We were required to estimate the cost to build to nearly 1,000 cell sites.  This task was going to take us at least 100 man hours to complete. Because we had data in the RFI tool from OSPINSIGHT, we simply clicked a button and got the numbers back, saving many hours of work. Not to mention we sent the proposal back within two days of receiving it."

ACCURATE PLANNING FOR FASTER BUILDS AND LESS RE-WORK

"OSPINSIGHT plays a big part in how we engineer a new build - how it will tie into older existing fiber, patching configurations needed, Right-of-Way options (permitting & leasing considerations), fiber count capacities needed, etc."

 

Procurement


SAVE COSTS AND REDUCE THE TIME TO PROJECT COMPLETION

"What we saw with PET was that not only did our costs indeed decline, but our timeframes decreased as well. It turns out that having a well-defined process that drives integrity and accountability into the process, also decreases the amount of time it took to complete a job."

PROMOTE INTEGRITY AND TRUST

"By implementing PET from AFO, we were able to accomplish a number of things in our OSP construction program. First and foremost, we instituted a “policy” of paying contractors for the work actually performed – nothing more, nothing less."

 

Network Maintenance


MORE RAPID RESTORATION OF SERVICE

"OSPINSIGHT helps us get the right people, to the right place, at the right time. We can supply the technician with all of the tools he needs before he goes out. Maps, splice schematics, tabular data are all available immediately."

IMPROVE CUSTOMER SATISFACTION AND RETENTION

"The exact savings is hard to calculate, but it is safe to say we have already saved many thousands of dollars in repairs due to preventative maintenance. And when you factor in keeping our customers through better service, some of them are worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.."

 

Legal


 

LITIGATION DEFENSE

"There was a potential 2 million dollar judgment hanging over our heads. We had to prove that we knew what services were running on each fiber of the cables attached to the utility poles. Because of the data in OSPINSIGHT, we were able to prove our position and get our issue resolved favorably."
