A delegation from Schwäbisch Gmünd has traveled to Cologne: First Mayor Christian Baron visited the German Association of Cities together with Youth Community Council Chairman Jonathan Wolf and also met with a delegation from “GmündCom”, led by Managing Director Stephan Crummenauer, at the trade fair for broadband and media, the “Anga Com”. They found forward-looking Gmünd companies advertising with the slogan “Made in Schwäbisch Gmünd”.
A lot of work, ideas and courage
Fast Internet is a matter of course these days. At least it should be. Just how much work, ideas and courage it takes to implement this, even in an industrialized country like Germany, is shown by the “white spots” that still exist. Eliminating precisely these is one of the major goals of Stephan Crummenauer’s team at the municipal subsidiary “GmündCom” with its “fairfast.de” brand.
Crummenauer, like Christian Baron, was enthusiastic about developments they had just seen at a booth from Schwäbisch Gmünd at the trade fair. The company JO Software Engineering, based in the Staufer city, is known among other things for software developments that take care of the documentation, planning and management of ultra-fast, state-of-the-art fiber optic networks. Christian Baron: “It’s inspiring to see here the know-how that comes from our city and plays a leading role in such an important market as that of fiber optic networks.”
On the international market
Stephan Crummenauer agrees: “We have been in contact with the owners of JO Software for a long time and have been able to follow how the fiber management software “cableScout” has successfully established itself on the German and international market.” With more than 400 network operators in over 20 countries successfully using the “cableScout” system, the family-run company with its headquarters in Türlensteg in Schwäbisch Gmünd is a true hidden champion of fiber optic technology, he said.
