New Features Launched by VETRO Continue to Transform Fiber Network Management Landscape

(Portland, ME …. August 22, 2023) — VETRO, the leading provider of user-friendly cloud-native fiber management solutions, announced a series of new features for its market-leading VETRO FiberMap platform.  The new features – including quick route, fiber paths table, and network dashboard – exhibit dynamic functionality, remarkable user-friendliness, and improved efficiency, giving broadband providers what they need to be successful.  

VETRO empowers broadband providers with tools that radically simplify all phases of the fiber network lifecycle, from planning and design to on-going network operations.  “VETRO operates in an industry that is moving at warp speed, where one cannot rest on any laurels,” said Lance McGee, Head of Product, VETRO. “Our continuous delivery of new and impactful features is a crucial part of our commitment to enable our customers’ ability to adapt to a dynamic and increasingly competitive environment.”    

The new features include: 

  • Quick route offers a paradigm shift in fiber network mapping. This time-saving feature automates the process of drawing perfectly coincident lines between two points (e.g. coincident lines that represent fiber cable and the ducts), significantly enhancing accuracy and efficiency. With quick route, users can streamline cable management, improve visualization, and dramatically reduce the time spent on network design. 
  • Fiber paths table provides network professionals with a comprehensive view of fiber network connections. By visualizing and analyzing the physical layout and connections within the network – now from the ‘inside out’ in addition to ‘outside-in’ – this new graph-based engine assists in bulk viewing and assignment, and in network operation, optimization, and troubleshooting. The customization options for network path data display and enhanced export capabilities facilitate seamless data sharing and collaboration. The fiber paths table is particularly valuable for identifying customers affected by network maintenance or outages. 
  • Network dashboard provides users with a summary of crucial network elements, alongside relevant features displayed on the map, in highly flexible and visual reporting. This data aggregation and summary presentation enables broadband providers to track network growth, plan strategically, and respond accurately to inquiries from management, customers, and investors by tying data-driven insights directly to the network view. The network dashboard offers a dynamic storytelling capability, empowering users to present data in a visually engaging and highly informative manner. 

“Because VETRO’s FiberMap is based on a true Software as a Service (SaaS) platform, we were able to roll out these new innovations quickly and seamlessly, giving our customers a major competitive advantage in the market,” said McGee. “The new enhancements reaffirm our company’s commitment to continuous delivery of cutting-edge tools that improve accuracy, ease-of-use, efficiency, and overall network performance.”
