Business challenge 

Standardisation, optimisation and automation. Those were KPN’s requirements for its fibre-optic network for the business market. The objectives: to connect business customers to the fibre-optic network more quickly, to prevent problems during execution of underground infrastructure works and to save costs. Moreover, KPN needed to standardise the fibre-optic network in order to comply with legislation on the exchange of information above ground and in underground grids and networks (Wet informatie-uitwisseling bovengrondse en ondergrondse netten en netwerken, WIBON). This legislation requires all network operators to have stored the data on their networks digitally and centrally in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) by 2027.
