Leveraging Technology for Joint Use Permitting & Make-Ready Engineering

Wednesday, November 15, 2023 | 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EST


Our webinars are eligible for IEEE PDH credit. To qualify, you must attend the webinar live and complete the IEEE evaluation we will provide following the event.


More and more utilities are being overwhelmed with attachment applications and recognize the current resource and processes are not sufficient to meet today’s needs. The Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) will finance $20.4 billion over the next ten years and the Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) will supply $42.5 billion for the deployment of broadband networks in rural America. With this explosion of new broadband structure owners, all share the common goals of ensuring system integrity, reliability, safety, and compliance.  Many utilities have successfully incorporated new technologies to support these needs, and perform the work with fewer resources while improving transparency of work and attacher communications. 

This webinar is an overview of these technologies and how they can work together to improve the performance of your joint-use management program while maintaining a safe pole plant:

  • Online application management tools
  • Efficient, accurate, and reviewable collection of field measurements through photogrammetry-based technology
  • The benefits of utilizing solutions that combine LiDAR, imagery, artificial intelligence, and automation to optimize engineering tasks
  • Benefits of implementing pole loading into your program
