Improve your telecommunications network, from coverage to operations and customer experience.
Improve your signal coverage
What's interrupting your line-of-sight between assets?
Use OS location data to visualise the whole of Great Britain's current landscape including vegetation and building heights. It also highlights surfaces – such as water – that reflect your signal, causing line interference and frustration for your customers. Clutter modelling identifies the risk of obstructions to signal.
Manage your infrastructure and operations, efficiently
Managing your cable and fibre networks, and masts, can be a challenge. When planning network build, our location data will help you optimise the way you roll out network in order to increase the number of premises passed and to improve ROI.
Improve broadband performance
Our location data helps you meet challenging customer and regulatory demands. People expect increasingly more from broadband performance and bandwidth, and as a result, consumers are not afraid to switch on service as well as on price. Use OS location data to provide a quality service and increase customer satisfaction.
Our data ensures your asset planning frameworks are up-to-date, accurate and reliable, and it gives you confidence in customer data and purchase pattern modelling.
Know the type and density of every building
Is it commercial or residential, a warehouse or an office, a detached house or block of flats? Our addressing data can quickly tell your engineers what they’re working with and show your marketing team where the opportunities may be.
