Continual change driven by digital transformation

GE provides software to help telecommunication workers optimize networks they install

Evolving in the constantly changing world of telecommunications

To survive the inevitable disruption you need to continually optimize your network operations and adopt new solutions for the planning, designing, construction and operation of your network. To remain competitive your network has to deliver the highest quality of service possible and when you can intelligently and cost-effectively upgrade and expand your network, you’ll be poised to deliver increased customer satisfaction and reduce your operational costs. Ad hoc databases, spreadsheets and simple GIS mapping solutions are no longer sufficient in supporting modern, mission critical fiber network deployments.

Geospatial network inventory

CROSS Single Network Inventory

CROSS specializes in consolidating inventory and network data into a single data model, providing a comprehensive, integrated view of the entire network. It does this by bringing together inside and outside plant for physical inventory from Smallworld Physical Network Inventory (PNI) and seamlessly integrating this with the logical view of the network, combining existing data sources and the network itself–resulting in a single source of truth.


This fully integrated inventory view gives operators the single source of truth necessary to visualize and effectively operate their entire network while improving data quality and delivering operational savings. CROSS data can be further integrated into the wider OSS/BSS environment via an Open API, helping support the transition toward automated network and service/commercial operations.

Smallworld Network Inventory

A single, integrated, physical network inventory reflecting the real state of your network acts as bedrock enabling you to streamline business processes. Without this foundation, far too much effort goes into manual processes and playing catch-up often resulting in costly mistakes.


The solution needs to be based on a robust telecom GIS to provide a geospatial view, built on industry standards and well-established workflows. GE’s GIS telecom network inventory solutions, built on the Smallworld platform, simplify the challenges of designing and maintaining next-generation networks throughout their entire lifecycle.
