Visual Automation platforms are transforming on-field FTTx operations!
Significant changes have recently taken place in the world of fiber-to-the-x (FTTx) operations. On-field operations are now more important than ever with the rising demand for high-speed internet and communication services. However, traditional operations face several difficulties, including low efficiency, low accuracy, high operational costs, and safety risks. Due to these difficulties, there is now a greater need than ever for modern solutions that can solve these problems and boost the intervention's overall effectiveness. One such approach that has the potential to completely alter on-field FTTx operations is visual automation.
What is Visual Automation?
Visual automation describes the use of technology, such as software and hardware, to automate procedures and tasks. The risk of human error is decreased thanks to this technology, which also increases the effectiveness and accuracy of on-field operations. Image recognition augmented reality, and artificial intelligence is the main components of a visual automation solution for on-field FTTx interventions.
By combining these elements into a single system, visual automation technology can be used to automate various tasks in FTTx operations. Telco infrastructure operators collect on-field photos – Eygles by Inveniam process big amounts of data and return business intelligence information that increases the quality of operations. For instance, image recognition can identify and track errors and malfunctions resulting from on-field FTTx operations, and augmented reality to give field technicians on-the-spot instructions.
Benefits of Visual Automation for On-field FTTx operation
The use of visual automation in on-field FTTx operations has several advantages that can significantly boost the efficiency of these operations. Some of the key benefits of visual automation include:
- Enhanced productivity and efficiency: Visual automation aids in streamlining and cutting the time needed to complete each task involved in on-field FTTx operations. This, in turn, results in increased efficiency and productivity.
- Increased accuracy and output quality: Visual automation increases accuracy and job quality while removing the possibility of human error in on-field operations.
- Reduced operational costs: Visual automation contributes to a reduction in operational costs by automating tasks and lowering human error.
- Enhanced safety and risk management: Visual automation helps in reducing the risk of accidents and injuries in on-field interventions and ensures that the field technicians follow the correct safety procedures.
- Better data management and analysis: Visual automation makes it easier to gather and analyze data in real time, which can be used to boost on-field FTTx operations' overall efficiency.
- Process streamlining and downtime reduction: By automating tasks and lowering the chance of human error, visual automation contributes to the process streamlining and downtime reduction of on-field FTTx operations.
Implementation of Visual Automation in On-field FTTx operations
EYGLES BY INVENIAM software solution helps you streamline your business processes and reduce costs by processing vast amounts of visual data from on-field FTTx operations.
Implementing visual automation in on-field FTTx operations involves several steps, including the selection of a visual automation solution, the integration of the solution into the existing process, and the training of the field technicians to use the solution.
Inveniam company is adapting solutions to every specific customer case depending on:
- Quantity of uploaded pictures;
- Amount of data to process;
- API integration;
- Gap between GIS databases and on-field data;
- Actual customer systems and processes
By combining the knowledge of the field operators and the detection capacity of the machine, our solution allows us to find many types of failures in telecom infrastructures and therefore ensures quality control of the cabling operations.
An essential step in the implementation of visual automation is training field technicians. The visual automation solution should be demonstrated to them so they can learn how to use it and integrate it into their routine work procedures. This will guarantee that the field technicians can use the solution effectively and that they are at ease using it.
Visual automation is anticipated to be even more integrated into other industries on-field operations in the future, and the technology is anticipated to keep developing to better meet the needs of field technicians and the businesses that hire them.
This technology refines on-field services and brings several benefits such as increased efficiency and productivity, improved data management, and quality of work.
