Rolling out New Zealand’s
ultra-fast broadband network
Visionstream, New Zealand’s leading telecom infrastructure provider, turned to Comsof and their FiberPlanIT design tool when embarking on an ambitious nine-year project to rollout New Zealand’s ultra-fast broadband (UFB) network, in partnership with Chorus, New Zealand’s guardian of the local fixed line network.
The FiberPlanIT FTTx scorecard:
- Fast: Twice the design throughput in just half the time
- Quality: Real-time scenario testing for optimum rollout
- Smart: 20-30 percent savings in trenching and cabling
“The end product delivered what we needed, that’s when we knew we’d made a good decision in choosing FiberPlanIT.”
Visionstream UFB Project Director, Garth Spencer
Post Luxembourg worked with FiberPlanIT to perform a detailed cost analysis of the nationwide FTTH deployment. In less than 3 weeks, they generated complete geographical FTTH designs for all 280.000 homes in the country using the FiberPlanIT software.
“FiberPlanIT models rollout in a very transparent way, with verified engineering rules. The flexible model adapts to the specificities of individual operators, and the precise costs listings match with real life experience.”
Yves Koch, Access network engineer, Post Luxembourg
