Pakistan – Pakistan Telecommunications Company Limited (PTCL) and LMK Resources (LMKR) Pakistan Wednesday signed an agreement for the deployment of a state-of-the-art turnkey Geographical Information System (GIS) solution.
PTCL’s SEVP South Adel Soufah and EVP of LMKR Mahmood Arsalan signed the agreement on behalf of their respective companies.The solution will enable PTCL to better manage Access and Transmission Networks and inside plant (OSP and ISP) infrastructure including its copper and optical fibre network.
The project, which would provide the network mapping of PTCL on the lines of google earth, would not only facilitate the PTCL to trace any fault in its fire optic network, but also it would assist the PTCL consumers by early repair of any fault in PTCL network.
Under the project, one of the most strategic developments in the country, would enable the PTCL technical staff through the GIS component, a greater visibility by providing quantitative andqualitative spatial information about the capacity and integrity of the PTCL network and pinpoint faults and issues when they arise.
Through the project, LMKR Pakistan would launch network mapping of Islamabad under its first phase.According to the scope of the project, the system will eventually be implemented across Pakistan and will become the only project of its kind to be put into practice on this scale in the South Asian region.
As part of the project, LMKR will be delivering this project on a turnkey basis. The objective is to design a robust and streamlined architecture that can be scaled to the national level. The resulting solution will significantly improve the operational efficiency through consolidation and better representation of spatial information.
This system will become the backbone of PTCL’s decision-making framework in terms of planning new expansions and maintaining existing infrastructure.It will also enable timely and efficient deployment of newtechnologies such as GPON and NGN. The consumer being the ultimate beneficiary will experience consistent quality of services and a more fault-tolerant network.
