BOSTON, October 26, 2018 – Connected2Fiber, a SaaS-based location intelligence platform, has announced that it has signed a master license agreement with The Associated Communications Companies of America, or the ACCA. The license will cover the entire range of applications and services that Connected2Fiber can provide and these offerings will be available to all ACCA member organizations.

 

The ACCA was formed in 1993 to establish a group of US Communication companies that come together regularly to collaborate, innovate, and communicate on key industry topics. Its member organizations include companies such as CenturyLink, Consolidated Communications, and Access Point. Collectively, the current members of ACCA possess in excess of $25 billion in annual revenues, categorizing it as one of the largest telecommunications associations in the United States.

“To be able to help organizations like the ACCA continue to embrace the power of location-based insight is why we exist. We firmly believe that now and especially into the future, with the advent of trends like 5G and the movement of content as well as processing to the edge, location intelligence will lead to data-driven decision making and company growth.”
