Mapping the Future of the Telecom Industry Since 2006
The 3-GIS corporate headquarters is located in the heart of the Tennessee Valley, overlooking the historic Tennessee River in Decatur, AL.
In 2006, drawing upon more than 25 years of telecommunication industry expertise and a vision to create a telecom mapping solution built on leading-edge technology and ready to support an industry quickly moving towards more complicated fiber networks, 3-GIS was founded by Tom Counts, Tommy Siniard and Jerry Golden.
As the complexity of telecommunications network began increasing, it become apparent that the tools available for designing and managing networks were quickly becoming outdated. Tracking network changes by hand or with several different systems often led to inaccurate or incomplete network data resulting in lost time, lost revenue and frustration. Network management system that relied on local software installation were an improvement, but they were often expensive, slow and kept data in silos, making it difficult for organization to see the "big picture."
3-GIS Network Solutions addresses the need for organizations to have access to network data anytime, anywhere, and on any device. The web, mobile, and admin tools work together to create an intuitive and intelligent network management system that enbled users accomplish their goals faster and more efficiently than ever before. 3-GIS takes complex GIS information and makes it simple to understand and easy to access from every level of an enterprise with only a log-in and internet access. The single data base model can be updated in real-time from the office or the field, reducing the potential for errors and maintaining data consistency. Deployable on-premise or securely in the cloud, 3-GIS Fiber Network Solutions has an option that works within any organization.
3-GIS Fiber Network Solutions operates on Esri’s ArcGIS Server platform. 3-GIS is proud to be designated as an Esri Gold Level Business Partner and Strategic Participant.
