GIS, Outside Plant and Network Map
The world’s most innovative software that easily combines GIS with active and logical networks.
Gain greater insights using interactive maps
VC4 Telecom GIS software offers unique capabilities to manage your fiber and copper networks. Interactive maps provide you with location-based graphical and geographical representation of your network. IMS will draw the connectivity automatically based on the information stored in the database.
VC4-IMS uses its own geo-database and is not dependent on other GIS tools, like ESRI or MapInfo. However it can be integrated with almost any background data provider, such as Google, Openstreet Maps, Bing, ESRI, government geo data, etc.
Interface easily with different GIS-geo background data providers (i.e. Google maps, Bing, OpenStreet Maps, ESRI, government specific)
Fully integrated with network inventory, physical, logical, active and passive network, workflow, impact analytics, etc.

Each object displayed in the Network Map is associated to information from the database. IMS will automatically draw the connectivity based on the information stored in the database. The Network Map is interactive, so that the objects can be opened directly from the map.
Network Map functionalities
The interactive map provides the user easy access to add objects, hide or display objects and to create exports. The IMS multi object create function, helps users to quickly engineer new networks. More information below regarding different functionalities and options in the GIS network map.
A user can decide what types of connections to be displayed per Network Map. For example, in a MPLS map, only show MPLS connections types, in a fiber map, only fiber network connection types, etc.
Connections can be highlighted on the map. This is done with a bold green line.
All network connection layers can be highlighted. For example VLAN, L2VPN, 2MB, etc. Work paths are highlighted in green, protection path with a red line.
Database objects can easily be added to the Network Map with a simple mouse click.
Network Maps can be exported in KML/KMZ format and Autocad (.dwg). Reports can be generated that include images, such as Network Maps, equipment views, floorplans, racks, cable routes. These reports can be saved in multiple file types, for example PDF, Word, HTML.
Display or hide objects
Users can choose which objects are displayed or hidden.
VC4-IMS has auto routing functionality can automatically find the optimum route through the network.
To help VC4-IMS users quickly engineer new networks, the system has the ability to create multiple objects in one action.
In the scenario where there are multiple connections between two nodes, the IMS user can decide to display it as one aggregated line or display it as separate connections.
Easily zoom in and out using the graphical or geographical view.
Depending on how the user’s permission are defined, the user has the ability to add, move/position, and delete objects.
Users can draw a new connection from a starting node +port towards a second node. IMS will display the available ports automatically. In the case of fiber trench, the geo route can be drawn directly on the map.
Outside Plant system
Plan and maintain your physical inventory within the VC4 IMS application. Typically, the OSP functionality is used for fiber & copper network registration, Mobile RAN (2G, 3G, 4G, 5G), Microwave/Radio networks, WiFi, Wimax and Subsea cables.
VC4 IMS is the world’s most innovative telecom GIS application fully integrated with physical and logical network inventory. Manage the active and logical networks (with the relation to the physical network). The logical connections and services can be displayed in a geographical view. This unique combination makes it possible to perform different types of analysis to reduce network outages (Single Point of Failure calculations) and improve the sales activities.
Examples of OSP objects that can be registered:
Network planning is integrated in IMS and facilitates your network change management. The following functionalities are available in the OSP/GIS are built in the system:
