APRIL 11, 2007 -- The City of Tallahassee's Traffic Engineering Division selected Telvent Miner & Miner's Fiber Manager, a set of tools within the company's existing ArcFM enterprise GIS product, which is used to manage fiber-optic networks. The City of Tallahassee will use Fiber Manager to edit, view, and trace fiber-optic information.
The City of Tallahassee's Traffic Engineering Division operates and maintains a regional traffic system, which controls the traffic signals and closed-circuit TV cameras (CCTV) for the City of Tallahassee, the Florida Department of Transportation, and Leon County. The Traffic Engineering Division also supports the Tallahassee Advanced Transportation Management System (TATMS) software and hardware. TATMS comprises eight servers, nine workstations, eight laptops, 313 signalized intersections, 86 CCTV cameras, six dynamic message signs, and over 170 miles of fiber-optic cable. The fiber-optic cable allows The City of Tallahassee to have second-by-second communication with its traffic signal controllers and cameras.
With the Fiber Manager application, the City of Tallahassee now can take advantage of tools to manage its outside plant fiber-optic system, including port-level fiber-optic connectivity, which allows availability of tracing applications in GIS. Several traces are also provided, including a fiber circuit trace, fiber availability trace, and OTDR outage trace. In addition, the organization also can leverage functionality to manage its fiber- optic cables, splice enclosures, patch panel locations, and CCTV cameras.
In the past, the organization traced fiber assets using multiple spreadsheets, CAD drawings, and manual labor, recall company representatives. After implementing the Fiber Manager, the City of Tallahassee now has the capability to report on circuit paths and fiber slices in a much more automated way.
