White paper: Reusing existing infrastructure in network designs

Reusing existing equipment such as PIA in the UK has potential, but adds considerable complexity to the network design.

What about data accuracy? What if the data is inaccurate? What if you start building and the access duct or manhole you wanted to use seems to be full or clogged?

What about availability limits? What if only a limited amount of equipment is still fit to use? How do you combine this with new equipment and civil works?

And what about cost efficiency: Can a mix of using existing infrastructure along with building new infrastructure be cost effective?

Design automation software such as Comsof Fiber can help tackle these issues by automating and optimizing the planning and design processes of fibre network deployments. Discover how in this new white paper.

White paper: Rapid geothermal district heating assessments in rural USA

In 2019, the US Department of Energy revealed GeoVision. GeoVision studied the market potential for geothermal district heating (GDH) in the United States. Although there are currently 21 systems in operation in the country, the study found that investment in the technology can push installations to 17,500 systems by 2050.

With a growth potential of 833 times existing capacity, the next problem becomes how to rapidly design these heat networks for development. One of the most difficult of these locations to develop are the sparsely populated towns, adjacent to low-temperature geothermal hot springs. This project took on the rural challenge at a residential demonstration site in Helena, Montana.

White paper: A smart fiber network for smart cities

Smart city networks are a must for any city aspiring to be an innovation and tech frontrunner. A smart city is about sensors and devices exchanging information on traffic, waste, infrastructure, public lighting. It is a boost for the economy, environment, safety. Above all, it is about connecting all people, making their lives easier, richer.

To accomplish all this, a smart city depends on flawless and rapid connectivity.

It is a complex venture to come up with a network providing this ‘omniconnectivity’. It can be costly if deployment is not well thought through. In this white paper we explain the importance of the planning stage in this network roll-out process.

White paper on FTTH-5G network convergence

With the introduction of 5G, heavy infrastructure investments are expected. Sharing infrastructure, such as between FTTH and 5G, is the perfect way to minimize costs.

Automated planning solutions can assist in creating these optimized and buildable networks. This paper explains how to generate up to 22% cost savings, by sharing network infrastructure.

In this white paper by Comsof and Siradelyou will discover:

  • How this automated solution looks like
  • What its added values are
  • What the possible outcome is in terms of savings

Fiber to the Farm: a white paper on building a superfast rural network

Building a strong FTTH business case is not a picnic, let alone building a rural FTTH business case.

Yet, the investment might be more beneficial than you might think. As not every ISP is willing to invest in rural deployment, the ones who do will likely be the sole player in this area. This generates a guaranteed and growing revenue stream for decades.

There are several possibilities to rollout superfast broadband connections in a rural area. And they all have their up- and downsides.

We discuss every relevant technology in this paper. We also offer additional tips and tricks to minimize costs and strengthen your business case.

eBook: Multi-vendor collaboration: Bringing best-of-breed technologies together

Collaboration and collaborative environments using network management ecosystem, creating a solid foundation for flattening information data silos that work against profitability.

Through encouraging vendor collaboration, Service Providers can realize their strategic goals of open architectures, task automation, and accelerated workflows.

When their collective collaborative efforts have that data or insight into the buildouts easily accessible and working, that’s when the service provider can get the sales and marketing teams knocking on doors and saying, “We start turning service in your neighborhood next week. Can we sign you up?” “Can we upgrade you to fiber?”

This is a joint initiative of 3-GIS, Vitruvi and Comsof.
