iconectiv use case substantiates how standardized site data maximizes revenue and ROI for companies that own towers and network sites

As service providers roll out new technology (like 5G) and densify their networks, it is critical that they have full visibility into the location, assets and capabilities of all available infrastructure and network sites. Companies that own and operate towers and network sites can help service providers do this—essentially optimizing their network planning and operation—by providing clear and accurate site information using the standardized industry data widely used by the telecom ecosystem.

New iconectiv use case highlights how streamlined ordering, interconnection and billing can light up wholesale fiber revenues and ROI

As service providers roll out 5G and densify their networks, they are increasingly relinquishing end-to-end ownership and control of their networks by outsourcing links to wholesale fiber providers. A new iconectiv use case explains how wholesale fiber companies can streamline and simplify their interactions with their service provider customers to secure greater market share. Service providers use an industry-standard common language to log and describe their networks. A wholesale fiber company that applies the same standard terminology to their own network elements will instantly improve communication within their own organization—and at a competitive advantage when marketing to service providers.
