  • ETI Software Solutions
ATLANTA, GA — ETI Software Solutions announced that Tennessee’s Newport Utilities has selected ETI’s Vision360 to support their greenfield FTTH network. “We are deeply committed to delivering high quality services to our customers, that’s why we selected ETI Software,” said John Knight, Technology Manager, Newport Utilities. “ETI’s proven solution and outstanding reputation in the utility/muni FTTH market made them the right choice for us,” he continued. “ETI’s software is specifically designed for utilities like us who want to leverage their existing billing and accounting capabilities to support FTTH services.”

In an emerging trend, Newport has partnered with neighboring Morristown Utility Systems who will share their IPTV and softswitch technologies, drastically reducing Newport’s CapEx and speeding their go-to-market time. In addition to billing triple-play services, ETI’s Vision360 solution will also provision Morristown’s technologies, activating video and voice services for Newport subscribers.

As ETI customers themselves, Morristown can rest assured this shared solution will be successful. “ETI has been a true partner of ours for over 12 years, and the quality of their software and service is unsurpassed; ETI has been integral to our business operations and thereby our success,” said George Benjamin, Telecom Operations Manager of Morristown Utility Systems.

Frank Gine, CEO, ETI Software, added, “This is a great example of how the broadband service delivery business model is evolving. As more utilities work together to offer fiber services, ETI will be able to support them every step of the way.”

The Vision360 solution is also integrated to Newport’s fiber access technology. “This is an enormous benefit to Newport because it completely eliminates the complicated process of activating in-house fiber equipment as it gets connected in the field,” said Chris Beisner, ETI’s vice president, product management. “This drastically cuts down on installation time so Newport can quickly ramp-up new subscriber installs.”

ETI’s Vision360 FMS solution has already been deployed at Newport to engineer and design the build-out of their fiber network. This module is part of the fully integrated software solution and is a collaboration with ETI’s long-time technology partner, Geographic Technologies Group. It features state-of-the-art mapping capabilities built on Esri’s ArcGIS platform.
