Valtellina Reduces Communications Network Data Production Time With Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Software

Huntsville, Alabama – Valtellina SpA, one of the largest communications systems integration companies in Italy, has implemented Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s advanced telecommunications GIS software, Intergraph G/Technology Fiber Optic Works, to support the design and implementation of fiber networks. Using Hexagon’s software, Valtellina has been able to reduce network data preparation and production time from 10 days to less than an hour.

Valtellina’s engineering services aid many large communications operators in Italy, such as Telecom Italia and Infratel Italia, a company of the Ministry of Economic Development tasked with increasing broadband connectivity throughout Italy. The data Valtellina and other engineering companies must deliver to Infratel after designing communications networks is a mix of complex computer-aided design (CAD) drawings and Microsoft Excel files, which required days of manual work to prepare and produce. Using Hexagon’s Fiber Optic Works, including an add-on module developed specifically for the needs of engineering companies working with Infratel, Valtellina has automated its data preparation and production.

“This is the best investment we could have made,” said Giacomo Ghilardi, TLC business unit manager, Valtellina SpA. “Not only has Hexagon’s software enabled quicker network design in a distributed, controlled environment, it has also reduced data production time from days to minutes.”

Fiber Optics Works enhances the complete life cycle of civil infrastructure and fiber network management – from design and construction through maintenance and operations. It ensures Valtellina can work with standardized processes, formats and layouts. It also provides the company with distributed network design and collaboration among multiple concurrent users, including subcontractors who are provided with controlled access to the system.

Valtellina selected Hexagon because of the company’s extensive references in the communications industry, including global and European operators and Italian companies, such as Asco Tlc, Retelit, BT Enia and Vodafone Italia. Other factors included the flexibility and openness of Hexagon’s software and the company’s implementation services, which leverage its experience in the Italian communications market to deliver targeted solutions for Valtellina’s different usage scenarios.

“Valtellina was searching for an alternative to its existing network design and documentation software,” said Angelo Gazzoni, Italy country manager, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. “We have been able to provide not only a better option for core network design and information management tasks, but also a solution for the company’s data preparation and production challenge.”

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure helps utilities and communications companies achieve greater reliability, enhance customer satisfaction, increase efficiency and fulfill the expectations of their customers, shareholders and regulators. A pioneer in the development and application of location-based technology, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure provides solutions to hundreds of utilities and communications customers around the globe, supporting network engineering, network operations, customer services, sales and marketing and safety and security.
