We want more bandwidth and we want it now. To do so, we need bigger and better networks to move data around. However, designing and building these networks is hard.
To design a network you have to manage a lot of data, handle complex engineering and architecture rules, across a business process that involves a range of different organizations. It is a complicated team sport.
For years Biarri has been nutting out the mathematics of network design. We wanted to make it possible to auto generate a network algorithmically. The job is never done, but for the most part we’ve done the math. We have a suite of algorithmic engines and we know we can quickly generate designs for networks that are cheaper to build. We call that suite of engines FOND.
To date we have focused on managing algorithmic complexity. But what about the team sport – managing data easily between players? Network design is collaborative, and of course essentially geospatial. Because of this the focus for us over the last few months has been about making it easy to access the engines and share and collaborate around the auto-generated outputs.
It has meant a renewed focus on simplified network design and geospatial collaboration.
