UK: Ordnance Survey has signed a new five-year agreement with Openreach (a part of BT Group) worth over £23 million for the supply of a range of data products, services and value added solutions.
Under the five year agreement, worth £4.6 million per year, Openreach will access a range of Ordnance Survey’s premium datasets including OS MasterMap Topography Layer, OS MasterMap Integrated Transport Network Layer, OS VectorMap Local and 1:50 000 Scale Colour Raster. The agreement also includes a range of addressing solutions providing an intelligent suite of products to support operational and insight work. In addition, it enables Openreach to supply Ordnance Survey data to contractors to support a wide range of projects, including engineering and maintenance.
The agreement will see Openreach extending their use of Ordnance Survey’s web mapping service, OS OnDemand. The service enables Openreach, and their engineers, to access detailed and up-to-date data, providing information on road geometry, house numbers, landmarks and building names.
Other collaborations include exploring the introduction and utilisation of an asset tagger solution and understanding how Ordnance Survey can support Openreach in mapping their assets, such as street fibre cabinets. This later project will be delivered by a value-added service as part of Ordnance Survey’s continuous data capture operation.
