Building a Fibre Network to Support Thousands of Customer Links

With their bold and disruptive approach to building fibre networks, Frogfoot Networks began looking for a BSS/OSS solution to help them manage their rapidly growing network.

With business goals to increase their number of fibre links into the thousands, Frogfoot wanted a solution that, in addition to supporting their network roll-out, would enable both automation and the ability to innovate their service delivery processes.

It was critical for Frogfoot Networks that their BSS solution allowed their customers to easily order new services, view the status of line installations and request services changes online. They wanted a solution that would provide their customers, suppliers and internal service delivery teams with real-time link delivery and status information.

Frogfoot has selected Business Automation experts, SOLIDitech, to assist them on their journey.

How SOLIDitech will help Frogfoot

SOLIDitech’s Business Automation solution, SOLID, streamlines previously manual tasks into an efficient and effective automated process, designed specifically for fibre network operators.

With SOLIDitech’s automated solution in place, Frogfoot will be able to manage their fibre network operations from feasibility studies to workflow driven documentation and 3rd party contractor management, to the installation of dark fibre and the provisioning and billing of fibre services. Automating each aspect of this end-to-end process provides Frogfoot with a solution that not only gives them operational visibility and efficiency but significantly reduces the number of manual operations.

Built on a central database, SOLIDitech’s Fibre Automation Platform allows Frogfoot to see exactly which phase of installation a project is in, and above all, that everything is on track.
