ENGINEERING

Phase two: Designing a fiber network requires collecting data from a variety of sources to produce a high-quality and accurate design. 

Design stage one (high level) 

Design stage one (high level) creates a working outline of your fiber network. 

  • Assess rights of way and easements for usability. 

  • Leverage imagery, property records and street-level data to outline and size the main routes and identify hub locations. 

  • Generate initial bill of materials specifications and field collection maps. 

Field collection

​Field collection establishes a design's feasibility and is crucial when it comes time to evaluate ground truth.

  • Assess and compare the virtual design to the ground truth requirements like roads, rocks, trees and water. 

  • Execute field collection and staking. 

  • Conduct Pole Loading Analysis. 

Design stage two

​Design stage two: The final design stage (low level) incorporates necessary revisions from field collection. Least-cost routing ensures the most affordable path is taken during construction. 

  • Verify the design follows the path of leas cost and provides a high level of serviceability while supporting growth and expansion. 

  • Expand the design to include connectivity from the premises to the headend.

  • Secure permitting and pole attachment.
