Telecom operators usually develop business cases for the deployment of high speed Fiber To The Home (FTTH) networks, taking into consideration that the major limiting factor is the deployment cost which is mostly related to civil works. This leads to a deployment strategy that minimizing the cost or for a fixed investment that maximizing the network coverage. Consequently, telecom operators often hesitate to invest and delay the deployment of FTTH networks or operations for gradual and slow deployment. A Geographic Information System (GIS) based fiber tool provides more accurate planning for new fiber network and seamless management of the entire integrated infrastructure.
