GE has introduced its Smallworld Network Inventory 4.3 software solution, which the company says is designed to provide utilities and telecom operators with an end-to-end view of their telecommunications networks.

In addition, GE says the software included in this update helps to improve the management of the communication networks that support deployments of intelligent communication grids.

Products encompassed in the Smallworld Network Inventory portfolio include GE’s Smallworld Physical Network Inventory, Smallworld Logical Network Inventory, Smallworld Network Inventory Gateway, Smallworld Fiber-to-the-Home and Smallworld Physical Resource Assignment.

One new feature within the 4.3 release is the ability for operators to check the physical diversity of their network, which ensures that operators can meet their service- level agreements with their end customers and avoid expensive penalties as a result of network outages, GE says.
