FiberPlanIT becomes Comsof Fiber

And get ready for the new Comsof Fiber release

Recently, Comsof celebrated its 20th birthday. As our company and software evolved so much, we decided to revamp our brand and simplify our product names. So, say goodbye to the name FiberPlanIT and say hello to Comsof Fiber and its latest release Comsof Fiber 2019.1.

Comsof Fiber 2019.1

Improved Comsof Fiber software

Please welcome Comsof Fiber, the enhanced version of FiberPlanIT. We’ve updated the Comsof Fiber interface lay-out, such as color schemes and logo. The biggest change, however, is the release of the improved Comsof Fiber 2019.1.  Here are some new Comsof Fiber 2019.1 features.

  • Support for brownfield N+0 or Fiber Deep designs: Comsof Fiber upgrades an existing HFC network to a Fiber to the Last Amplifier network in the most cost-effective way. The software takes out all amplifiers and decides where to place new optical nodes. It also calculates new tap values to comply with the configured optical loss requirements. The software also calculates the fiber network to feed the nodes.

 

  • Lock the cable routes: A network design is done iteratively. The routes in the part of the area that is already surveyed can no longer change. With this new feature it is possible to lock selected routes in place. The software will still calculate the equipment, such as cables and ducts for these routes, so that you get a feasible network design. This also results in speed improvements, as the software needs to calculate less variables.

 

  • Support for QGIS 3: The QGIS platform keeps evolving as well. QGIS 3.4 is the new Long Term Release of QGIS. We reworked our plugin to support this new version.

Why did we change our name?

We aspire to be the go-to company for planning and designing future-proof networks. That is why we streamlined our product names, based on Comsof, which has been a household name for over two decades now. Delivering state-of-the-art software and swift service from our world class engineers.

We believe network planners make the difference by efficiently designing high quality and constructible networks when using intelligent design software. We aim to work smart, fast and flexible and be a reliable partner.

If you have any question regarding our name change or our software, please do not hesitate to contact us!
