Hydro Ottawa Reduces Costs, Maximizes Control with Owned Fiber Lines

Hydro Ottawa The Distributor article.

A Hexagon customer since 2003, Hydro Ottawa is committed to the smart grid technologies, automation, and remotely accessing data to reduce costs and improve service to its customers. One way it has done this is by installing a fiber optic infrastructure to ensure data security and increase its data control measures across the organization. In 2016, Hydro Ottawa also implemented Intergraph G/Technology Fiber Optics Works to help manage its newly installed telecom network from the enterprise, through the back office, and into the field.

In a recent article in The Distributor, Louis Voisine, grid technology manager for Hydro Ottawa, discusses how Hexagon’s fiber network management solution can maintain extensive attribution about each fiber device and conductor, which tracks connectivity and shares this information with all Hydro Ottawa users and systems. Intergraph G/Technology Fiber Optic Works also helps plan, connect, and deploy fiber networks as well as supports full tracing capabilities, fault analysis, and path redundancy.

Discover how Intergraph G/Technology Fiber Optic Works helps Hydro Ottawa provide easy and immediate access to reports it needs to satisfy various departments requirements.
