for Utilities and Telecommunication Companies
We have exciting news to share.
The utility network launches a brand-new way for you to manage utility and telecom data. You can:
Esri will continue to expand the capabilities of the utility network over the next months and years.
In the spring, Esri will offer data migration tools to help you move to the new utility network.
Our summer release of the utility network will include:
To give you time to prepare for a migration to the new utility network, we will continue to support ArcMap and the geometric network, including a new release this summer.
In 2015, we created a special utility and telecom release, 10.2.1, which we promised to support until June 2021. Once on this release, you did not have to upgrade your desktop technology. You only had to install utility patches as they become available. This made keeping up with the latest technology simple and easy. However, you have made requests related to security and platform support that we cannot accommodate with the simple patch process.
So, we are providing another option.
In the summer, you can upgrade to our 10.6.1 release, which will continue to support ArcMap and the geometric network. This is not a migration—it is a straightforward upgrade, similar to the patches you’ve already been installing. This release will allow us to offer necessary security and platform improvements. It will also be supported until January 2024, giving you more than two years of additional support with these familiar tools. In addition, we are working closely with Schneider Electric, who will be certifying ArcFM on ArcGIS 10.6.1.
We will continue to offer patches to both the 10.2.1 utility release and the 10.6.1 utility release.
The road ahead for network management is the utility network.
We look forward to your feedback. If you have questions or concerns please reach out to your account manager. They will bring the right resources to you.
Stay tuned for more updates on our exciting new technology.
