Vodcast: Fiber communication networks are critical for smarter cities

There’s been a lot of talk about how 5G, AI, IoT sensors and digital twin capabilities can make city agencies and operations smarter. At the core of the devices and data powering the smart city revolution are fiber communication networks. These high-speed, scalable networks allow information to be shared securely and efficiently.

In this vodcast, Hexagon’s Jack Williams, Jean-Francois Allard and Don Lorente talk about fiber networks and the roles they play in today’s world, as well as HxGN NetWorks, Hexagon’s geospatial asset management solution to optimize fiber optic networks for utilities and telecommunications organizations.

“I think Hexagon NetWorks has been the first designed to be a unique repository of all the assets – the single source of truth for all the assets related to a utility or telecom network. By essence, this is a real digital twin. It keeps track of all the elements inside, but also of all the things surrounding the network.”

– Jean-Francois Allard, director EMEA utilities and communications
