Preparing for 50% FTTH coverage by 2026

In December 2016 Proximus, Belgium’s historical telecom leader, announced its 3 Billion Euro investment plan to connect 50% of the homes in Belgium by 2026.

Proximus trusted FiberPlanIT tools to keep control over their FTTH network deployment. In this case study, you will read about Proximus’s plans, challenges and process to achieve this ambitious roll-out.

“We needed to thoroughly rethink our tools and processes to achieve this massive FTTH and FTTB roll out.”

Proximus Chief Technology Officer, Geert Standaert


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 Luxemburg

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
