Issues facing telecoms networks today
Telecoms networks assist enterprises and users in their daily activities and perform a structuring function, just as electricity grids did in the early twentieth century. This major economic issue is a focus for operators, developers, and both public and private-sector operators, as they join forces to build and operate these networks, ranging from THD to fourth and fifth-generation mobile networks.
Faced with the extent of these new territories and the exhaustive description of the infrastructures to be built and operated, network mapping has now become essential.
The key challenge for telecoms stakeholders is to manage to bring together information in a single, straightforward repository that is effective, universal, and accessible in real time, so that all the departments in any given organisation can use the data supplied by any contributor.
