New SICAD-UT-TC application: optimizing the use of telecoms and data networks. The new SICAD-UT-TC (Telecommunication) application is used for planning, implementing, documenting and managing telecommunication and data networks. SICAD-UT-TC gives operators, particularly power utility companies, a complete overview of the structure, location and capacity of their information networks.
With SICAD-UT-TC, SICAD UTILITIES is offering a comprehensive solution in which the SICAD-UT geo information system is integrated with Cable-NSM (Network Service Management). Network engineers can use SICAD-UT-TC online to access all the information on free and available lines, find the optimum routes and plan entirely new trenches. This new application for telecoms and data networks adds a further important dimension to SICAD-UT, the standard application for the supply industry. SICAD-UT-TC has been extensively tested by a large number of users and was released for sale in October 2002.
Supply companies generally operate their own networks for telephony and data transfer based on their LAN-networked PCs. Because most supply companies have a decentralized structure these networks often occupy different buildings at more than one site. To provide the best possible solution for this technical and spatial problem, SICAD-UT-TC integrates the Cable-NSM component (Network Service Management) from Steinmayr GmbH in the SICAD-UT geo information system. Users therefore have an integrated online solution that covers all requirements. While Cable-NSM manages the physical and logical structure in the entire cable network, SICAD-UT presents the spatial routes of the trench and outdoor cable network and information on the cable routing system in the form of graphics and attribute data masks. In addition to supply companies and municipal authorities, the obvious potential users of SICAD-UT-TC are all other operators of independent information networks, such as public authorities, hospitals and airports. The obligation to provide information on the network infrastructure is relevant not only to supply sectors such as the power and water industries but also to the operators of information networks.
