We’ll provide a roadmap for success that starts with a high-level market assessment program and is backed by confirmed demand for connected community broadband.
Rapid to Deploy
Once you decide yes for your community, first steps begin immediately. Residents can also “compete” against each other to receive broadband services faster.
Secure & Cost Effective
Our management platform is very secure, ensuring customer data is impenetrable. It’s also a cost-effective broadband operations solution that requires low start-up costs, which are scalable to your market engagement success.
Customer Web Portal
Residents can view and choose the broadband services they need at competitive rates, all from our Network Marketplace.
Demand Aggregation, Competitive Analysis & Community Engagement
We interact with your community and get to know their broadband needs. Whether through in-person events, virtual gatherings, or door-to-door visits, we discover exactly what your residents desire for improved broadband, helping make this digital community fabric stronger and more connected.
When time to build broadband connectivity demand, Woven provides a demand aggregation tool, enabling you to collect grassroots demand for better broadband and pre-sell internet connections. This tool helps build your broadband network, finding interested customers, signing them, and then spreading the word and increasing your chances of success. This tool also provides market intelligence, competition, and market potential, giving greater visibility into the network’s future revenue potential.
Open Access Network Provisioning & Management
Scalable open access networks allow communities to own and maintain the fiber infrastructure layer and lease it out for others to deliver services, much like an airport that houses several different airlines. Customers have the freedom to build a bundle of services from several providers that suits them best, which means maximum consumer power, an open and level playing field for any kind of provider, and no restrictions for introduction of future services.
The open access network model creates lower prices, higher quality services, and bigger assortment that improves resident take-rates. It also accelerates growth and increases your return on your broadband investment.
Fiber and Network Asset Management
Many communities are unable to operate and manage their broadband networks due to lack of knowledge and experience. However, with Woven, you can manage your network and maintain the success of your fiber infrastructure. Our experience includes fiber asset management, GIS visualization, capacity planning, and field word order and fault management services. You can rely on our expertise to help guide you and learn the skills needed to manage your broadband investment.
IBI Group is helping the City of Brooks, AB, with fiber-optic network construction and retail internet service provider delivery. This transformational project will make the community more livable and attractive to residents and businesses, alike.
IBI Group was retained to define and develop a preliminary design, along with specifications and standards, to expand the City of Lethbridge’s existing dark fiber-optic network to selected industrial parks. The initiative was part of a pilot project to improve the attraction and retention of businesses in the city’s industrial areas and to support future land development.
IBI Group performed an assessment of Parkland County’s existing radio tower and fibre-optic infrastructure in order to develop an accurate valuation of the assets and to identify cost- and risk-appropriate development and expansion opportunities for the County.
IBI Group engaged with Paul First Nation, based approximately 70 kilometres west of Edmonton, to identify the current state of broadband services and improve connectivity in the area to help support the Nation’s residents, schools and businesses.
