Why 
VETRO FiberMap?

Platform of Record

States tasked with broadband funding management need a central platform of record to track all relevant local, state and federal data. 

Visibility

VETRO accomplishes this in a map-based visualization platform that enables real-time communication, collaboration, and reporting across multiple entities. 

Accountability

Additionally and powerfully, the VETRO platform will enable data flow to the state from state-funded projects, establishing a high level of accountability, transparency, and highly visual project status and ROI tracking.

All of these benefits support efficient and effective communication between the state and key stakeholders. 

Analytics & Planning

Once state and local assets are digitized in the VETRO system, state agencies can view operational, in-progress and planned networks, identifying geographic areas that need further development

Further, using those identified unserved regions, the VETRO platform can be used to perform high-level costing to quickly identify funding needs.

VETRO Cares Program

The VETRO Cares Community Broadband Solution

The VETRO Team created the VETRO Cares program to provide planning and design tools that can help accelerate broadband expansion in local communities throughout the US.

VETRO Cares extends the value of the core VETRO FiberMap platform, the same platform used nationwide by ISPs, Engineering Firms, professional broadband planners and others, to local broadband initiatives.  At a basic level, anything that a local committee was doing in Google Earth for mapping and asset inventory or in spreadsheets for cost estimation can be done in the VETRO Fiber Management platform.  And moving this data and work into a cloud-based platform provides a virtual table and map for all stakeholders to collaborate around.

Let's Connect
VETRO Cares: State Agencies

For state broadband agencies, VETRO Cares is a platform of record, intelligently mapping and inventorying the state’s existing broadband infrastructure and coverage gaps.   along with data layers the agency needs to get a clear picture of their state’s progress in bridging the digital divide. Beyond simple mapping, VETRO offers state broadband offices a publishing engine for maps of served and unserved areas, as well as a collaboration and reporting platform that unlocks  transparency and pathways to accountability around grantmaking programs.

VETRO Cares: Community Planners

For communities engaged in broadband initiatives, VETRO Cares offers the VETRO FiberMap fiber management platform, paired with data packages, local support networks and the training and guidance to go from vision to lit fiber like experts. This program is being rolled out in managed groups, with the first rollout being in VETRO’s home state of Maine and launched in November, 2021.  VETRO will be bringing the program to other states over the course of 2021 and running calls for participation. If you have a community broadband project in need of a mapping platform, reach out to VETRO now and we will consider selective deployments outside of the managed groups.
