Enhance the planning, design and management of networks

Utilities and communications services depend on network capacity and reliability. Hexagon provides companies with the data and capabilities necessary to plan, design and secure their networks, avoid outages, manage field teams and keep customers informed and satisfied.

As populations grow, so do the expectations for utilities and communications services, from reliable power to sanitary water to high-speed internet. Building out and managing transmission and delivery networks for these services is a complex task. In the office and the field, utilities and communications companies need accurate and timely information about assets and locations.

Our technologies innovate data collection, analysis, management and delivery, providing the information and insights needed to ensure network capacity and reliability. We help companies map assets and locations, plan and design expansions, monitor and maintain networks, secure assets and support their customers.
