What is TeleCAD-GIS?

TeleCAD-GIS is a software for:

  • planning,
  • designing and
  • maintenance

of telecommunications networks such as FTTx or GPON.

Whom is it for?

TeleCAD-GIS users are generally divided into two groups:

  1. TeleCAD-GIS standalone desktop application users. These include:
    • telecom operators
    • design bureaus,
    • engeneers and technitians
  2. INOVA GIS Platform users (enterprise GIS):
    • Telecom operators
    • Power grid operators
      (for networks with OPGW cables )

 

Scope of application:

  • Fiber optic networks including:
    • Transport network:
    • FTTx networks
    • Networks using OPGW cables
      (power-line optics)
  • Copper networks
  • HFC networks
  • Conduit networks

Toolsets:

TeleCAD-GIS comes in three varieties
with respective set of tools for:

  • planning,
  • designing and
  • documenting

See TeleCAD-GIS comparison table.

TeleCAD-GIS Features

Design with ease

Automatically convert geodetic survey or any CAD drawings into routes.
Obtain geometry using GPS device and import it directly as TeleCAD-GIS objects.
Harvest the power of shortest path algorithm to quickly lay down cables and ducts.
Use predefined symbols of nodal network elements.
Define properties of your network elements using predefined extensible catalogues.

Get a clear insight

Use unparalleled automatically generated schematic diagrams of cables and fibers to work on your network.
See every fiber's connections, trail, attributes... Filter fibers.
Splice fibers in splice cases and terminate them on connectors of terminal network elements right there on the schematic diagram.
Splice and connect fibers within detailed schematic diagram of every splice case, ODF, OTB, FTB etc.
Just drag and drop fibers and you're done.

Add data to your fibers: fiber name, owner, lease data, OTDR data...

Manage hierarchical structure

Use FO network tree tool to revise connectivity of finished network.
See if the elements are connected to the main supply source and check if they are connected in an intended way.

Or,
use FO network tree to quickly define hierarhical structure of newly designed network.
Add spare fibers (reserves) throughout the network and automatically designate the position of every element on a ODF and within main cable.
Than, automatically optimize cables capacities and splice entire network by just one click.

Microducts

Microducts module enables automatic pipe laying, automatic optimization of pipe capacity as well as automatic splicing.
Blowing microcables is now reduced to one click.

Reports and analytical tools allow you to check at any time.

It shouldn't be forgotten that manual splicing and changes that occur in the field, especially in the exploitation phase, can be done at any time and on any element.

OTDR Trace

Locate an outage based on OTDR measurements.
Simply insert an optical length and TeleCAD-GIS will pinpoint an outage location on the map.
Slack loops, cable lengths and terrain are all taken into account to get accurate optical distances.
While at it, calculate attenuation and power budget for selected optical fiber.

Pathfinder

Find available path between any two or more elements of your FO network.
If there is no direct fiber connection program shall propose actions (splicing, patching etc. within nodal elements) in order to create desired path.
Use this to find alternative path while you deal with an outage.
