GPON Network Design
for Small and Medium Operators
Small and Medium Operator solution
New challenges for local telecom operators
In the era of intensive fibre optic networks deployment, many local operators decide to expand their telecom networks with FTTx / GPON technology. For the most number of cases the EU funds offered within Operational Programs are used for this purpose.
Along with the construction of the telecom networks, a need of its continuous maintenance arises. Both the delivery of services (B2C and B2B), as well as maintenance operations on the fibre optic network require special equipment, skilled crew and appropriate storage facilities. Additionally, regulatory reporting aspect puts its requirements on data to be managed in operator’s inventory. This causes, that the whole project requires a higher level of management and coordination of works performed on the network where time to implement all the steps should be used optimally.
A solution for Small and Medium-sized Telecom Operators
To meet the above described challenges posed to the telecom operators, we have prepared FTTH / FTTX / GPON network design software that is designed to support their activities both at the investment planning stage, as well as during further works related to the preparation, implementation and subsequent maintenance thereof and the delivery of services.
The aim of our solution is to provide professional tools that already exist within large operators. However, we propose them in the model adjusted to small and medium-sized telecom operators. Therefore, one of the key objectives of the undertaking was to enable our software to easily integrate with systems used by operators and publicly available data. In this way, we have managed to develop a professional solution that at low cost provides the functionality required by the telecom industry and which is additionally characterized by:
A solution based on Open Source software
Our products based on proven and widely used Open Source components have obtained many advantages which in the environment of small and medium-sized operators can be crucial when making the decision on selection of the necessary FTTH / FTTX / GPON network design software.
We use Open Source components in the developed solution:
A solution based on two systems
The presented solution offers fully-featured professional network inventory and network services support system. It does not require any additional licensing fees related to both the operating system (Linux), database engine and GIS/CAD libraries.
The solution is based on a central database, the use of which can be started from single-site deployment and then expanded by subsequent users. The solution consists of two systems:
A telecom operator receives a tool that by using modern technology allows network asset management in terms of inventory itself, as well as extended with the support of operations being performed on the network. A very large emphasis has been put in the automation of the operator’s work in order to minimize the time needed for precise digitising large amount of data and in consequence lowering operating costs of daily activities.
Network inventory in Geospatial Network Inventory
Geospatial Network Inventory (GNI) is a system for geospatial inventory of telecom resources. The solution provides a set of functionalities for the collection and processing of both operator’s own network assets as well as foreign operator’s infrastructure. The most important features of the system include:
Network processes support in Ksavi Network Operations
Ksavi Network Operations is a supplement to the Geospatial Network Inventory system in terms of process management of daily activities performed on the network. From planning and design through construction to maintenance and delivery of services, the system supports an enterprise by streamlining processes and automating the work carried out on the individual network elements. The most important features of the product include:
A full description of the functionalities can be found on the Ksavi Network Operations product webpage.
Available software versions
Geospatial Network Inventory as the solution for Small and Medium Telecom Operators is available in several versions:
Ksavi Network Operations, supplementing the Geospatial Network Inventory is available only in the multiuser version both in the on-premise deployment and in the Software as a Service model.
