Introduction

The demand for public utilities has never been so high before and it is increasing every day. The growth of utility networks is going through the skies, forcing many companies to upgrade, expand and create these networks of utilities. As Network Owner a company has to manage records related to their passive network assets such as Fiber cable, enclosures, spans and all the equipment used in network. Currently, most network owners do not have an integrated information system where they can manage all this using a single platform. Companies use CAD drawings, excel sheets, and other legacy and outdated methods for planning, design and operation purposes.

While these are just drawing or documents. Owners cannot view their network in real time. Neither they have the resources to overlay their networks on other utilities or on the satellite images. The result of such approaches yields poor decision making and profit loss. The passive network inventory is like a corridor from which many services interact with each other. For example, billing services, customer management services, network operation & testing services and many more. Having a proper inventory solves many problems but more importantly it solves these problems much efficiently and smoothly. Saving a lot of profits and time.

Solution Overview

FUMS fills the gap of records management and passive network inventory with its next generation GIS engine, connected processes, tools and applications. SIT Digital fiber competence teams with number of SMEs are connected with FUMS and Microsoft Teams in order to have efficient governance of passive fiber network and data integrity.

Fiber Utility Management System (FUMS), a Cloud VMbased Engineering application for Network Owners specifically designed for the purpose of Fiber network planning, design, as-built, operations support and inventory management. Which incorporates ESRI EnterpriseArcGIS Pro, Microsoft SQL, ASP.net, Python, Microsoft SharePoint, Andriod and IOS Technologies.

FUMS can be used by any browser. Simply login and work on your assignments. The one window tool let users do all sorts of assignments ranging from planning, designing, as-built update, analyze the network and many more. All these privileges are configurable, meaning, you can assign and limit a user to do certain type of assignments. Users can see their assets on map but also in the form of tables. Finding any asset on map becomes very easy and with a single click user can see all the information related to that asset.

Highlighted Functionalities

Backup & Security

FUMS is connected to a single Enterprise Geodatabase hosted on Microsoft SQL Server. Having all the assets in one Database makes it very secure and easy to fetch on demand. The system generates backup of this database regularly so that assets are saved from any potential disasters.  FUMS has variety of base maps for user convenience. These Real time updated base maps become very handy to locate the existing network or while designing the new network.

OSP Module

Designing and OSP Operations of a fiber network has never been so easy before. The simple and easy to use FUMS enable users to simply select any model from a pre-defined / configurable list and click on the map to place it. After placing the asset, a long pre-defined / configurable list of metadata appears. Where designer can enter the related information of that asset such as its unique name in the inventory or its available ports etc. The existing assets can also be modified with same method.

The OSP Module of  FUMS also enables users to automate the design or feasibility study process. First, a high-level design of the area of interest is generated, upon which the low level / detailed design is generated. The state of the art auto designing tool saves a lot of time.

ISP Module

The OSP Assets carry numerous Inside plant equipment. Ranging from splitters, routers, racks, floors, rooms, and many more. To keep record of these items, the ISP Module of FUMS offers a graphical interface where users can easily add this information in a convenient form. The Floor plans and Rack layout views are automatically generated accordingly. Designers can simply select any asset and open its ISP. If designer has made selection on the map then there is possibility that many assets get selected including span, equipment, structure etc. That is why individual buttons are there to help navigate designer to desired inside plant.

OSP/ISP Survey Module

Time, Accuracy, Resources and many other factors have made paper-based survey useless. However, many companies now conduct paper-less surveys using mobile and handheld devices, but the real problems still remain. Companies may have adopted to new technologies, but real savior here is the integration of data. FUMS is seamlessly connected with the survey app. Which means that designer in the office and surveyors in the fields are working together at any given time with easy-to-use controls.

Data Filter

FUMS lets users filter the data on the map. A specific work order can be selected and all of the data concerned with that work order shall come on the map right away.

Connectivity Module

Fiber connectivity with equipment ports are enabled to keep detail record of which port is connected with which fiber for better management of network. User can add new connection or view existing connections between fiber and ports based on selection of assets from map.

Reporting Module

All the reports and maps required to get approval from governing authorities can be printed in PDF using Reporting & Printing module. This include High Level Drawings, Low Level Civil and Fiber Drawings, Single Line Drawings/Schematics of network, Duct Space Reports and Bill of Materials used in network. Customers have option to ask for their pre-defined reporting structure.

Trace Module

Trace is an important aspect of any fiber network to view logical connectivity of ports and fibers for this specific need Trace Report is enabled for FUMS and results can be easily added on map with a single click or trace report can be saved as pdf or excel to share which will be showing logical network.

Warehouse Module

Store inventory is also integrated with FUMS so design can be more efficient and use material that already exist in store inventory.
