Designing the backbone or the last mile of an FTTx network while finding the optimal cable routes is a complex task that needs to take into account the available infrastructure as well as many engineering parameters. Classically done by hand, using CAD drawing tools, the process is tedious and unflexible and becomes a bottleneck when network roll-outs need to be industrialized.
Such studies typically require the collaboration of many people around a single design, including network engineers, GIS experts and field workers. A classic design process would typically be iterative. Being mainly a manual process, simulating different scenarios is almost impossible as it would translate into a far too long and expensive study. As a result, current FTTx network designs typically contemplate few alternatives (in most cases a single one), which lead to expensive and under-optimized networks to build, deploy and maintain.
Setics Sttar helps Network Infrastructure Owners, Service Providers, Network Builders and Municipalities to take the best decisions when designing their FTTx plans, without spending a fortune in engineering studies.
Setics Sttar computes the best network according to constraints and costs and free network designers from tedious task, allowing them to focus on more valuable task where human expertease is required.
The benefits of the tool include a sharp reduction in equipment costs through optimization, a significant cutback in design efforts, a better quality and consistency of the design, a more change-ready design thanks to the ease of iteration and multiple scenarios generation. Setics Sttar supports the usual engineering phases, including:
The use of Sttar results in significant gains and a rapid return on investment in research phases and dramatic savings in construction phases of the network.
