Telecom Maps from SGSI
Telecommunications digital maps

 

Telecommunications maps are essential components for planning, visualizing, analyzing, and operating your network.

  • Keep your maps up-to-date with a digital data update subscription. Updates are available quarterly, semi-annually, or annually for most products.
     

  • Maps alone are simply components. You may also need mapping software or application development to meet your business needs.
     

  • All prices listed are for single user desktop licenses and are subject to change without notice. For server licenses and multi-year subscription discounts, please call SGSI at 1-206-224-0800 or email us.


Area Code maps
Area codes, aka "NPAs", are the most familiar telecom geographic boundary. They change frequently, as new NPA's are added or existing boundaries are split. More recently, "overlay" area code boundaries have also been superimposed. AreaCodeInfo™ offers the most up-to-date view of these well known telephony boundaries.

AreaCodeInfo™ includes both the US and Canada.

Price: $995

CLEC maps

CarrierInfo™ is a set of maps of the operating territories for the incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs), competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs), and Wireless carriers.  ILECs are the traditional wireline "phone companies" such as the "baby Bells".  CLECs also offer local wireless phone service typically by leasing space on ILEC networks.

The wireless maps in CarrierInfo™ are built from the Rate center areas where each carrier offers phone numbers.  These are different from, and much less specific than, the RF coverage footprint maps offered in the separate WirelessInfo™ product.  [For maps of wireless license areas (MTA/BTA and MSA/RSAs), please see MobileMarketInfo™.]

CarrierInfo™ boundaries align with wire center boundaries in ExchangeInfo Plus™ so they can be effectively used together.

With CarrierInfo™ you will be able to identify, visualize, and analyze the US holdings of traditional and non-traditional wireline phone companies along with wireless coverage.  The following data is included for each: Parent company name, OCN name, Carrier type (ILEC, CLEC, Wireless).

Price: $7,995. 
Single-state coverage costs less. 
Note:  CarrierInfo replaces both LECInfo and CLECInfo, products that were offered separately by MapInfo Corporation until Fall 2005.

Exchange & Wire center serving area maps for the US

ExchangeInfo Plus™ include maps of the geographic areas served by wire centers. Each wire center serves a unique set of telephone number prefixes, aka NXXs, within its fixed geographic serving area. The  ExchangeInfo Plus™ product also include data for each map boundary: e.g, the NPA or Area code, plus a list of the NXXs associated with that wire center.

ExchangeInfo Plus™ is the most comprehensive product available and includes CLLI™ Codes, LATA assignments, Rate Center names, Exchange names, and Carrier Type information, as well as the expected NPA and NXXs.

Similar maps available for Canada and Australia (Call).

Key uses

  • DSL and CLEC service availability web sites (coverage locators) for internet or intranet.

  • Customer targeting: e.g., finding businesses served by specific wire centers.

LATA maps

Local Access Transport Areas (LATAs) are regulatory boundaries defined by the courts as part of the breakup of the original Bell system. Generally speaking, LATAs define two categories of long distance calls: between LATA and within-LATA calls. Generally, each LATA contains just a few major metropolitan areas. As defined by the courts, LATAs do not consistently follow zip code, census tracts, counties, or even state boundaries.

The LATAInfo™ product is a digital map of the LATA boundaries. Each boundary in LATAInfo™ also has data for the wire centers, area codes (NPAs), and the major LECs operating within the LATA.

Key uses

  • Determine whether a call is intra-LATA or inter-LATA.

  • Rate and regulatory analysis.

Price: $2,450

Local Calling area maps

CallingAreaInfo™ is a combination of map software, exchange and other maps, plus rate plan data integrated into a single product with a comfortable graphic user interface. 

CallingAreaInfo™ incorporates rate plans filed by wireline carriers into a database.  The software uses these, as well as MapInfo's exclusive Exchange maps, to compute the local calling areas.  Enter an NPA/NXX or Rate Center, then let CallingAreaInfo™  report  the NPA/NXXs that are "local" for inbound or, separately, for outbound calls. 

CallingAreaInfo™ also generates maps of the local calling area, improving customer service efficiency.  Call plan maps, plus your own network and demographic maps can be combined to support powerful map-based analyses.

Key uses

  • Quickly and accurately determine if two phone numbers are local to each other - using point-to-point queries.

  • Visualize the difference in calling area footprints between various available calling plans, such as 'Flat Rate Residential' vs. 'Extended Area of Service'.

  • Price costs of private lines for CLEC and other wireline carriers.

  • Select and assign wireless and CLEC local numbers: e.g., assigning NPA/NXXs that maximize the customers local calling area; and ensuring that proposed NPA/NXX allows local calls for customers home address.

  • Select local access numbers for ISPs, calling card companies, hospitals & other enterprises where it is important to maximize the area that can call the number without incurring long distance charges.

CallingAreaInfo price: $24,995/1-user.
Price includes a map interface.  MapInfo Professional software not required.

Photo maps: High-res off-the-shelf aerial photos

MapInfo-ready aerial images are suitable for use as a background reference layer for maps of cable routes, fixed wireless hops, wireless coverage, antennae sites, and other network elements. With photo maps you can see the vehicles on the street, judge the land use, and generally get an honest view of the environment around cable routes, antennae sites, and other infrastructure.

Photo maps prices depend on the sq. mi. of coverage and the image resolution.  In some markets four levels of resolution: 1-foot, 2-foot, 1-meter, and 3-meter pixel. These are ortho-rectified photos. All photo dates are 2000 or better.

Coverage is available for most major metro areas in at least 1-meter resolution.

Price: $Call.

Notes: 
1
.  The price for a single county is the cost for available photo coverage for that county.  Photo coverage focuses on the built-up parts of a county, and only rarely includes 100% of the county.
2.  If you use MapInfo Pro 7.5, 7.8 or 8.0, you can use its "Web Map Server" interface to view freely-accessible aerial photo maps.  Current SGSI customer and need help?  Please call us at 206-224-0800.
3.  Aerial photo maps are also available as a subscription service, under which you connect to a remote server.  This gives you cost-effective access to a huge amount of  photo coverage, without imposing any data storage or update requirements.



Note: 1-meter pixel sample.  Higher-res photography also available.
