Gridsz is the SaaS platform specifically developed to handle all administrative processes in the management phase of a (FttH) network. Essential to the operation of any network is network utilization. Therefore, processes must be perfectly aligned and support the network owner in its ambitions. While Cocon takes care of the asset registration of the network, Gridsz ensures that the issues concerning availability and sales, after-connections, service and failures and all related communication between network owner, active operators, service provider, and contractor are perfectly aligned and the chance for errors is minimized.
Gridsz offers a single platform where all these parties can share their data and use workflows to handle their administrative processes easily, quickly and without errors.
The Gridsz platform consists of a growing number of modules that fit together seamlessly. They form a powerful system for handling all conceivable administrative processes. For example, there is the Availability Checker, which is a data warehouse that provides insight into the status and availability of the network with all possible details. And also of the parties that use the network or provide service for the network. In addition, for the operational management of networks there are several task-controlled modules, such as Fulfilment, which allows active operators and ISPs to completely handle the order management from installation and migration to post-connections. Or the Service module for efficiently managing incidents and communicating with customers. All modules can also be used separately and communicate with an external system via the open API.
We continue to develop the Gridsz platform according to the wishes of customers and new challenges in the telecom world. Below you can read about the most recent developments:
NEW MODULE FOR NETWORK CONNECTION MANAGEMENT: ADDRESS MANAGEMENT
In addition to the Availability Checker module, there is now a module that enables the assignment of a unique address code for the convenient management of networks in all countries. Our home base The Netherlands has the advantage for management systems that all addresses are unique and BAG registered. But that is quite an exception compared to other countries where unique addresses are not the norm. Non-unique rules are obviously disastrous for a reliable database.
In order to keep the database of connections in other countries clean, a new module has been developed: Address Management. A unique address ID can be generated per connection address, which helps network owners to create a clear and reliable overview of all connections.
