Within telecommunications, location matters more today than ever before. Next-gen communication networks made up of fiber and 5G technologies have geographic dependencies that are forcing the industry to re-think how they use GIS and mapping software. Location intelligence is becoming fundamental to delivering all types of communication services – mobile and fixed, residential and enterprise. Geospatial platforms are enabling digital transformation by providing location intelligence to the whole organization to support network planning, buildout, fulfillment and assurance. As the world leader in location technology, Esri provides the most advanced capabilities in the industry, helping organizations be first to market with their next-gen network services through geographic insights. Through this webinar in partnership with Light Reading, you'll learn how today's communication service providers are leveraging a complete GIS to meet their next-gen network goals.
