HUNTSVILLE, Ala. 19 July 2022

Hexagon’s Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division today announced the rebrand of its portfolio of infrastructure solutions to HxGN NetWorks. The new name signifies the cohesive, integrated offerings within the portfolio and symbolizes Hexagon’s continued dedication to advancing technology that supports critical infrastructure across the globe.

Used by over 600 customers around the world, HxGN NetWorks is a geospatial asset management solution with lifecycle management capabilities spanning all phases - from planning and design to maintenance. It enables organizations to design, build, manage and maintain physical networks for electric, gas, water, wastewater, multi-utility and telecom.

A flexible, integration-ready solution, it provides a single source of accurate, up-to-date information and a full spectrum of tools for various roles and users across an organization.

As part of the rebranding, Hexagon’s industry-leading products, including Intergraph G/Technology, Fiber Optic Works, G/Connect and G!NIUS, have been renamed as HxGN NetWorks suites.

More than a name change, HxGN NetWorks builds on Hexagon’s more than 40 years of industry experience with additional feature enhancements to the product suites. Users can now improve field and mobile workflows, better manage network capacity and utilization, simplify fiber planning processes and more.

“The HxGN NetWorks portfolio is a fresh commitment to the utilities and communications industry,” said Maximillian Weber, senior vice president, Global Infrastructure, Hexagon’s Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division. “With the rise of fiber deployments, distributed energy resources, microgeneration, electric vehicles and more, utility and telecommunication organizations need to adapt and prepare for the evolving requirements to grow in the future.
