SIRO Selects Intergraph and IMGS for Fiber Broadband Project

10 August 2015

SIRO, a joint venture company between ESB and Vodafone, has selected Intergraph’s partner in Ireland, Irish Mapping & GIS Solutions Limited (IMGS), to supply and implement Intergraph software to aid in the planning, design and build-out of a 100-percent fiber-to-the-building broadband network.

SIRO will use Intergraph's commercial-off-the-shelf software, including Intergraph G/Technology, Fiber Optic Works and GeoMedia, to perform high-level network planning and design. Third-party contractors will also use the software to survey and build the fiber-to-the-building network. The Intergraph and IMGS solution will integrate with SIRO’s operations support systems (OSS) and business support systems (BSS), including Amdocs Operations Support Systems (OSS) – previously known as Cramer.

"SIRO required a trusted and reliable partner to deliver the software necessary to implement the new fiber network,” said Alun Pearsey, U.K. country manager, Intergraph Security, Government and Infrastructure (SG&I). "Working with IMGS, we are rapidly deploying a proven, flexible solution that can consume the electric network data on which the fiber network will be built. We are proud to assist ESB and Vodafone is this critically important endeavor.”
