Today’s innovative technology meets tomorrows high speed UK fibre networks

Obelisk are delighted to announce their recent technology partnership with Nordic GIS software company Digpro. This collaboration will assist Obelisk in their continued survey, design and build strategy for the UK AltNet Fibre to the Premise Sector.

Obelisk’s UK Managing Director Jeremy Sheehan had this to say regarding the partnership ‘’Obelisk is delighted to have selected Digpro as its technology partner for the design of FttP networks in the UK. When we set out to assess the market for a FttP Software Design platform we had several specific criteria we needed to meet. It had to have the capability and rigour to allow for the design of “Carrier Grade” FttP networks. It also had to deliver on survey, design, build work management and documentation functionality with full mobility.

Digpro’ s comprehensive technology platform meets all of the Obelisk criteria and has now been fully proven across our activities in the AltNet Fibre to the Premise market. We are delighted with our decision and are looking forward to working with Digpro on future projects’’
