For network owners and operators looking to drive market participation in the wholesale and channel markets, the process of managing locations, creating spreadsheets to share that information, and mapping it to the formats that large carrier customers prefer has always been a challenge.
Now, by virtue of an agreement with Connected2Fiber, one fiber connectivity provider will be able to increase its market participation among carriers, service providers and content companies seeking access to its reach across rural and urban America.
INDATEL™, it was recently announced, has signed an agreement to implement The Connected World, Connected2Fiber’s SaaS platform. The Connected World is the connectivity industry’s first market acceleration platform built to help network operators see and manage their assets with market intelligence. The SaaS platform enables OnNet and NearNet location management, route tracking, interconnection and building list automation, all in a visual, automated toolset designed for the connectivity industry.
INDATEL has also adopted the Building List Manager, Connected2Fiber’s automated software module for creating and distributing OnNet and NearNet building lists to drive wholesale and channel market participation.
INDATEL, a Nationwide Network that provides fiber connectivity to rural and urban America, is uniquely positioned to provide broadband telecommunications services to many places that other carriers cannot reach. Its network represents over 100,000+ fiber optic route miles of middle-mile network and 100’s of thousands of last-mile fiber optic facilities via its 29 members, who represent 700+ Rural Local Exchange Carriers. Currently, the INDATEL Services network serves over 5,000+ communities and 100,000+ fiber-serviceable on-net and near-net buildings.
Justin Forte, Director of National Sales at INDATEL Services, had this to say about INDATEL‘s agreement with Connected2Fiber.
“Our Nationwide Network of members excel in delivering reliable connectivity via fiber optic network routes throughout communities across America,” stated Mr. Forte. “Now, with Connected2Fiber, we have a platform that can create, design and program building lists to be distributed in customer-preferred formats in less than four clicks, a process that will increase our participation in the market with carriers, service providers and content companies needing access to our reach. We also get access to the visualization tool, showing our entire internal team our routes, OnNet and NearNet buildings and key market data, eliminating version control or manual updates. We are excited to partner with Connected2Fiber and implement their platform to help drive growth and participation.”
Ben Edmond, CEO and Founder of Connected2Fiber also commented on INDATEL’s agreement to implement The Connected World and Building List Manager.
“We welcome INDATEL to our platform and look forward to helping them drive participation in the market,” stated Mr. Edmond. “INDATEL is a leading provider of fiber transport throughout the country and provides unique access to the market. Networks like INDATEL provide tremendous value to the market, and it is our mission to make sure their reach is participating with all of their partners, every time they build new routes and add more OnNet buildings. Location management and intelligence are at the heart of The Connected World, ensuring transparency for market intelligence to provide context and help network operators like INDATEL grow.”
