City of Tallahassee’s Traffic Department Selects Telvent Miner & Miner’s Fiber Manager

April 10, 2007 -- Fort Collins, CO -- The City of Tallahassee’s Traffic Engineering Division selected Telvent Miner & Miner’s Fiber Manager application as their solution for editing, viewing, and tracing fiber optic information. Fiber Manager is a set of tools within the ArcFM™ enterprise GIS product to manage fiber optic networks, and as a result City of Tallahassee is able to leverage their existing GIS database.

The City of Tallahassee’s Traffic Engineering Division operates and maintains a regional traffic system, which controls the City of Tallahassee’s, the Florida Department of Transportation’s and Leon County’s traffic signals, cameras (CCTV) and the Tallahassee Advanced Transportation Management System (TATMS) software and hardware. TATMS comprises eight servers, nine workstations, eight laptops, 313 signalized intersections, 86 CCTV cameras, six dynamic message signs, and over 170 miles of fiber optic cable. The fiber optic cable allows The City of Tallahassee to have second by second communication with their traffic signal controllers and cameras.

With the Fiber Manager application, the City of Tallahassee is now able to take advantage of tools to manage their outside plant fiber optic system including a port-level fiber optic connectivity which allows availability of tracing applications in GIS. Several traces are also provided including a fiber circuit trace, fiber availability trace and OTDR outage trace. In addition, the organization can also take advantage of functionality to manage their fiber optic cables, splice enclosures, patch panel locations and closed circuit TV cameras (CCTV).

Prior to using the application, the organization traced fiber assets using multiple spreadsheets, CAD drawings, and manual labor. After implementing the new application, the City of Tallahassee now has the capability to report on circuit paths and fiber slices in a much more automated way.
