    Fiber Manager

    Offers an integrated set of tools to display, manage, and analyze the fiber optic networks within a telecommunications system.


    • The focus of this release was to bolster the overall quality of Fiber Manager by streamlining its codebase.
    • In case you missed it, we released Wavepoint 1.0.3 earlier this year. Here are the improvements with the latest release:
      • A new identify tool to allow easier viewing of assets in dense environments on the map.
      • A legend so that users of the webpage can easily understand what they are seeing on the map.
      • Improved hyperlink support, to allow better access to external websites or document management systems.
      • A new measure tool, so Wavepoint users can quickly identify distances from locations to a network access point.

    Important: The Wavepoint 1.0.3 release is compatible with versions 10.2.1 and older. The soon-to-be-released Wavepoint 2.0 will support the new data model used in 10.2.1a and 10.2.1b.
