Telvent announced that Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC) has further leveraged its ArcFM GIS solution with the Fiber Manager fiber optic application. This integrated solution is helping the utility firm capture complete documentation of its fiber infrastructure and meet federal-level reliability standards.
OUC is claimed to be the second largest municipally owned electric utility in the state of Florida and the 16th largest in the United States, providing electric, water, and chilled water services throughout the fast-growing City of Orlando; the popular Sea World, Universal Studios, and Walt Disney World attractions; and adjoining portions of Orange County. In 2003, the utility went live with Telvent’s ArcFM enterprise GIS – developed on the ESRI ArcGIS platform – to standardise facility asset data that were contained in multiple, disparate information systems and maps. To capitalise on this centralised geodatabase, OUC added ArcFM Viewer on ArcGIS Engine in 2006 to make current asset data available to field users for safe maintenance and prompt outage response. Most recently, OUC added the Telvent Fiber Manager application to map the utility’s 570-mile fiber cable network within the GIS.
