KADENCE Releases Fiber Management Enhancement

  • KADENCE
MISSOULA, MT — KADENCE, a telecommunications software and professional services provider, announced that its KADENCE Circuit Management (KCM) platform has been enhanced with functionality specific to the management of optical equipment, mapping of fiber assets and the tracking of outside plant (OSP). In addition to tracking inside-to-outside plant connectivity for legacy copper and Ethernet assets, KCM users are now empowered to track fiber connectivity as well.

Updated Functionality
Existing KCM functionality has been updated to track OSP locations such as fiber nodes, poles, pedestals, enclosures and manholes and facilities such as cable and duct. The fiber enhancement will also include web-based, raster and vector database maps featuring editing functionality. A three-phase release schedule is planned, the first of which occurred on September 30th, 2017.

Optimizing Management of Special Circuits, Inside Plant and Trouble Tickets
Launched in 2014, KCM is an OSS platform that optimizes the management of special circuits, inside plant and trouble tickets. Courtesy of a workflow engine, business processes are formalized, key performance indicators (KPIs) are developed and the timing associated with revenue realization is improved. Network visibility is enhanced by functionality that efficiently depicts circuits, facilities and inside plant and ultimately correlates network customers, circuits, contracts and SLAs. Thanks to this association, maintenance notifications can be issued in a matter of minutes courtesy of an intuitive GUI. A report library offers comprehensive and customizable information specific to customer and offnet contract management as well as regulatory reporting.

A Single, Back-office OSS Solution
Todd Twete, KADENCE’s vice president of sales, reflected on the release, “Fiber deployments continue to be an ongoing concern for the small and mid-sized service providers. In addition to the quest to create an ROI, service providers must also comply with FCC reporting requirements. Our fiber management enhancement is further testament of our commitment to eliminate multiple, disparate platforms, create a single, back-office OSS solution and empower our partners with an intuitive and efficient solution for tracking their valuable fiber assets.”
