Built by OSP Engineers, OSPInsight software has been helping fiber network operators plan, design, and operate their networks since 1994.
OSPInsight is owned and operated by OSPInsight International, Inc. (OSPI). OSPI is a privately-held company based in South Jordan, Utah under the shadows of the majestic Wasatch mountains. OSPI was founded in 1993 with the intent of introducing high standards of aerospace fiber optic engineering practices to the US telecommunications industry. By 1995, OSPI founders had successfully achieved their goal and were supporting fiber optic splicing and testing operations throughout the western United States. Those field service offerings continue today, and have expanded to include fiber characterization testing throughout the United States.
As OSPI began its field service operations, it became obvious to the founders that there had to be a better way to document fiber optic networks. At the conclusion of nearly every fiber optic project OSPI would be asked to prepare binders full of paper records that would summarize the work that had been done so that it could be combined with other binders of records to serve as documentation for the project. The problem was, the outside plant data within those binders was not easy to get to, let alone analyze to help make insightful decisions.
Thus, the birth of the idea of OSPInsight. By 1996 OSPInsight software products were being distributed to OSPI customers to help them better understand and interact with their network documentation. The move towards paperless documentation was underway.
Since that time, millions of strands of fibers have been documented in OSPInsight products throughout the world. And, the passion to develop, distribute, and support software applications to more efficiently and effectively document fiber optic networks moves forward today.
