  2. 2. A map was once a simple piece of paper. Its information was limited by time and scale. With the onslaught of various technologies that we live with today, things have changed. A map is now a living document. And as the world changes, your maps adapt. Global trends like smartphones, context- and location-based search, climate change, crowdsourcing and so on have brought GIS to the cross-roads of various technology lanes. And this is only the tip of the iceberg. Experts say that 70-80% per cent of all forms of data/information in this world possesses some geographical reference and GIS becomes immediately relevant here. Matured IT standards and interoperable systems have expanded the scope of GIS across many applications. The global GIS engineering applications market will see double digit growth till 2016, as per Geospatial Today magazine. Our vision is to continuously collaborate with our customers and partners to achieve proliferation of GIS applications across the world, across all channels—desktop, web and mobile. Our GIS practice combines the power of GIS technology with extensive domain knowledge to develop powerful spatial technology solutions that integrate seamlessly with your IT framework.

  5. 5. Case Study 1: Telenet, Belgium Brief: Smallworld GIS upgrade Telenet is the largest provider of broadband cable services in Belgium. Telenet provides cable television, high speed internet and telephony services primarily to residential customers in Flanders. Telenet also offers services to business customers all across Belgium and in Luxembourg under its brand Telenet Solutions. Telenet offers its residential services through the combination of its cable network, which passes some 1.6 million homes in Flanders, and through its long-term usage rights on cable networks which pass a further 0.8 million homes in Flanders. Telenet has direct relationships with all of its internet and telephony customers. Telenet also offers voice, data and internet services to its business customers through its fiber backbone, which covers all Belgium and Luxembourg. Telenet required an upgrade of its existing network inventory system from Model.IT2.0.1 to Physical Network Inventory (PNI) 4.0 for managing their vast fiber network. However, the upgrade posed a major challenge because a direct upgrade of the database was not possible. The database was initially upgraded to Model.IT 2.0(2) which is based on GE Smallworld Core product 3.1 SP1. A series of other upgrades were performed to upgrade the database to PNI 4.0. Apart from the database upgrade, we: - Re-wrote all customized models from Model.IT for the upgrade - Ported all applications to PNI 4.0 - Re-developed applications that did not have the source - Developed a host of new applications like Street Locator, Easy Browser as per requirements - Deployed the Smallworld database on a powerful new server - Synchronized network data to an Oracle database We used the following tools for the project: - Spatial Object Manager - DXF Translator - Dimension Toolkit - Lightpath Case Studies Highlights - Developed thousands of OSP models - Reduced reloading efforts significantly - Automated configuration by over 40% - Effort completed entirely offshore - Used ESRI ArcGIS Desktop and Telcordia Network Engineer
  6. 6. Case Study 2: British Telecom Brief: Outside Plant (OSP) Model Building British Telecom required a comprehensive (OSP) Model Builder for all outside plant elements. The primary requirements were: - Validating and automating the loading of OSP data - Adding new models to support the expansion of telecom models - Maintaining the database of existing facilities - Loading OSP data to Network Engineer (NE) Highlights - Improved data capture - Easier data sharing - Efficient planning and design of fiber network - Better response time for complex data validation - User friendly HMI for easy usage Case Studies
  7. 7. Case Study 3: Singapore Land Authority – Land Hub Brief: Wireless@SG Coverage Map Wireless@SG Coverage Map is a free service that allows users to search Wireless@SG coverage areas and to locate them on a map. The tool allowed users to search for and find the nearest Wireless@SG hot zones and hotspots in their vicinity or other locations. The tool allows users to: - Search for land parcels and find out whether they are private or public - View wireless coverage and non-coverage areas (Wireless@SG) - Get information about wireless points available by clicking wireless hotspot points (Wireless@SG) We used the following tools to develop the application: - Microsoft .net 2005 - ArcGIS Server 9.2 - ArcSDE 9.2 - Oracle 10g Case Studies
