Phoenix-based International Fibercom Inc.'s subsidiary Compass Communications Inc. (Atlanta) won a $10 million contract to provide Cablevision Systems Inc. (Bethpage, NY) with design and engineering services. This latest award augments the contract awarded to Compass in July 1998, expanding the original scope of work and doubling the total award.
The contract will aid in upgrading its existing networks to support high speed internet access, cable based telephony, and other high speed multimedia services. The contracts constitute an initial phase of this upgrade. Compass will design and provide a computerized model of approximately 15,000 miles of Cablevision's fiber optic infrastructure.
The routing and equipment inventory information will be documented using Model IT, a Smallworld based, GIS software product designed specifically for the design and documentation of telecommunications networks.
