Abstract:
    Automation of network planning process and efficient network monitoring, at its top will be application infrastructure to provide multiple view level and shared access to the users
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    It has now become the basic requirement of every telecommunication industry to integrate GIS component for it's better planning and management, which provides the single dashboard to aid in better monitoring and cost-effective solution while minimizing the workforce.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Potential beneficiaries of this project would be telecommunication service providers and utility management companies where the telecommunication fiber network is used for designing and management of networks through this application.
How will the solution works
    GIS datasets such as fiber network, road network, land-use classification maps are required to plan the automated design according to the topography of the area and topological rules for the new fiber facility using open source technologies i.e. QGIS plugin (FTTx Planner). These datasets are then stored in the postGIS, and integrated to the web-based application to visualize the network for efficient management and multiple view-level and complaint handling.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Competitors for the telecom solutions regarding planning and monitoring of fiber networks are other technological companies such as LMKT who are providing costly solutions. Our solutions is based on the open-source technology which makes it more cost effective for the beneficiaries.
