Cambridge, 08 June 2021 – IQGeo (AIM: IQG), a developer of geospatial productivity and collaboration software for the telecoms and utility industries, today announced that Deutsche GigaNetz GmbH selected IQGeo as its strategic supplier of fiber network management and workflow software. As a rapidly growing fiber network provider in Germany, Deutsche GigaNetz chose a cloud deployment of IQGeo’s Network Manager software as its dedicated System of Record (SoR) and will also be using its Workflow Manager software to optimize mobile field construction processes.
Deutsche GigaNetz is a highly innovative next generation fiber network operator that brings “lightspeed” performance broadband to customers across Germany. Its business model is focused on delivering an unrivalled fiber-to-the-home service and support experience for its customers using industry-leading technology. To meet this ambition, Deutsche GigaNetz selected the IQGeo software in a highly competitive tender process, recognizing both the innovation of the IQGeo geospatial technology and the shared vision of creating an end-to-end, optimized network management solution that is accessible across the entire enterprise.
Based on IQGeo’s cloud-native architecture, Deutsche GigaNetz has selected a Microsoft Azure cloud deployment to support its aggressive network growth targets, providing a highly scalable, resilient, and secure enterprise solution that reduces long-term total cost of ownership. IQGeo’s mobile-first Workflow Manager software will underpin construction ticketing for Deutsche GigaNetz’s field crews and 3rd party contractors, optimizing processes and accelerating time-to-revenue.
“The selection of the IQGeo software is based on the open flexibility of its platform and the usability of its mobile applications” says Michael Käufer, Manager of Planning, Construction and Documentation at Deutsche GigaNetz. “As a rapidly growing network provider, agility and innovation are fundamental to all aspects of our business and IQGeo offers us the ability to support our entire operational lifecycle with a single geospatial solution.”
“We are very impressed with the vision of the Deutsche GigaNetz team and pleased to be selected as the strategic supplier of choice for their partner ecosystem” says Christian Wirth, General Manager for EMEA and Asia at IQGeo. “With initial deployments scheduled for late summer we will begin by documenting their data model, defining construction workflows and integrating a number of applications and data sources to create a single geospatial network view for all stake holders. Our Network Manager SoR will provide both performance and functional scalability as Deutsche GigaNetz’s market share and network grows. We look forward to building a long-term partnership.”
