Frequently Asked Questions
MarlinDT and Marlin?
MarlinDT or Marlin Digital Twin consists of two solutions to manage and operate telecommunication networks.
(1) Networkmining focuses on operational inventory of your active/logical network.
(2) Marlin GIS focuses on geospatial inventory of your passive/physical network.
The two solutions offer the first true Telecom Digital Twin, by bridging the active & passive inventories. This combination enables a unique solution to empower the telecommuniation operator.
The MarlinDT solutions are modular.
Marlin will be implemented in a phased approach, to avoid any “big-bang” stress for your organisation.
When migrating to Marlin, Dataconnectors can be used to maintain parts of your network in your legacy solution while using the data already in Marlin.
Our team has excellent project management skills to enable a phased roll-out of Marlin in your organisation.
We provide remote and on-site training and support.
Desktop or Web? Cloud or local?
Marlin runs on your or our servers.
The Marlin Desktop runs on top of Esri ArcGIS Pro and is mostly used for complex designs and editing of the inventory.
Marlin offers a web and mobile solution for viewing and light-weight editing like redlining, adding pictures, …
A strong API enables other application to further consume the data. The datamodel is open to encourage your developers to further use your data.
Esri Utility Network?
Marlin was built before Esri developed the Utility Network. While Utility Network is a robust solution, it is not yet a proven solution for large-scale telecom operators with millions of subscribers.
Our team closely monitors the development and productization of Utility Network for Telecommunication networks and will adapt in due time.
