Introduction to Walkout Survey

Walkout Survey can be used to streamline the management of communication walkout surveys and quickly evaluate the feasibility of proposed broadband expansion projects.

In a connected world, access to reliable broadband communications service is essential. Today, the FCC estimates that approximately 35% of Americans do not have reliable access to service (25MB download / 3MB upload). To close this gap and increase overall broadband speeds, public and private funding is pouring into the communications market and driving expansion of existing communications networks. Every day, communication organizations are building out broadband infrastructure to reach new customers and businesses. Before construction begins, detailed field surveys are required to determine the most optimum and cost-effective route. Walkout Survey is typically implemented by communication organizations that want to collect critical asset information needed to plan new communication network projects and validate proposed network routes.

The Walkout Survey delivers a set of capabilities that helps you streamline the management of walkout surveys and quickly evaluate the feasibility of proposed broadband expansion projects.
