Having a digital model of exactly what your outside plant looks like can have big financial benefits, whether it’s streamlined reporting to local authorities, dealing with taxes, or even showing places where inefficiencies can be cut and costs can be reduced by eliminating redundancies. This webinar explores how building an accurate and detailed connected model of the network enables better reporting to inform the financial decisions surrounding the planning, building, and operating of a network.

During this webinar, presenters review:

  • Best practices for defining requirements for modeling a network.
  • How communication service providers can leverage that digital model for better financial reporting — whether for tax purposes, M&A opportunities, investor relations, network expansion plans, or network expense reduction strategies.

Attendees will discover best practices of building a connected network model and learn how that model can be used to build better reports and inform the financial decisions surrounding the planning, building, and operating of a network.
