Telecommunications is one of the fastest-growing GIS markets in the world. Telecommunications networks are expansive and create large quantities of geographically dispersed asset data to build on high-quality geographic data. GIS provides telecom companies with accurate information about the terrain, existing infrastructure, land use patterns, and population density. This data enables precise network planning, ensuring that the end-to-end network is efficiently designed to reach the target customer base, improve efficiency, reduce costs, and improve customer service.

In 2021, GIS made significant strides in the telecommunications sector, generating a staggering $1.56 billion in revenue for communication service providers. By 2030, the revenue is expected to increase by up to 4.48 billion due to the growing demand for telecommunications services and the need for more efficient and cost-effective infrastructure management.

GIS provides the ideal tools for managing and mapping the telecom network to enhance network planning, deployment, maintenance, and operations. It allows for the identification of areas and optimization of the placement of cell towers and other telecommunications infrastructure. Additionally, it enables pinpoint accuracy in tracking customer service requests and identifying areas with telecommunications service issues.

At Wipro, we consistently invest in understanding evolving consumer needs and have developed sophisticated solutions and services for our partners:

  • Cloud GIS for Fiber Optic Network Deployment: This solution uses cloud-based GIS technology to assist telecom companies in planning, designing, and deploying fiber optic networks.
  • Address Curation: This service helps telecom companies curate and categorize addresses in their target areas. This information is crucial for creating accurate and up-to-date maps, which are essential for network planning and design.
  • Topological Survey: This service aids telecom companies in determining the optimal placement and connection of network components. This information is used to create topological maps, which are instrumental in designing and optimizing networks.
  • Network Synthesis: This service helps telecom companies in determining the optimal placement what size components to use for their networks. This information is used to create network topologies that meet capacity requirements and maintain network reliability.
  • Network Realization: This service helps telecom companies develop strategies to meet capacity requirements and maintain network reliability. This information is used to create cost effective network designs that meet the telecom company’s needs.

Wipro has excelled in creating detailed network design blueprints by integrating various data layers, including street maps, aerial imagery, and geospatial data. By visualizing the network layout in a three-dimensional model, telecom companies can identify optimal locations for equipment placement, reducing construction time and costs.
