FTTH design and fiber planning software


Automatic, cost optimized, FTTH design, engineering & fiber planning software.

ITSimplicity Solutions creates automatic network design & project planning software for the simplified engineering, planning and building of FTTH/FTTX Optical Fiber Networks .

  • With our software you are ready to automatically create accurate, high quality, GEO referenced, high-level and low-level (detailed) FTTH/FTTX designs.
  • Our unique optimization algorithms enhance the design speed and reduce the optical fiber network materials & installation costs drastically.
  • The advanced online design reporting and project planning software will simplify your project management activities.

Create quick & cost-optimized designs, start planning your project with ITS-Fiber Engineer™

  • Design: we use the Autodesk platform with professional design functionality and multi-platform options.
  • Optimization: unlimited amount of iterations, alternative modelling of the fiber network, even after the 2-month trial period
  • Planning: the data is secured. It is hosted by Microsoft Azure Cloud. All communication is SSL encrypted.
  • On-line support, documentation and instruction.

Using our software together with walk-out survey tools.

By using modern tools we can capture important route and premises information with some level of accuracy.
Existing aerial and duct routes, existing equipment locations and building data can be registered with survey tools.

The survey data can be processed and edited in the office.
Possible new aerial and/or duct routes are added to the survey results.
By using the survey data together with any proposed/optional routes, the FTTH network design will be automatically made by the ITSimplicity Solutions software.

Our automatic design will show:

  • All existing and new network items, routes and customer connections.
  • The BOQ costs report, the financial proposal automatically generated per area.
  • Detailed information with proposed manhole/handhole/pole coordinates.
  • Detailed information with terrain details and quantities.
  • Per area, the design will give a good view of the proposed network and the related costs.

Before starting the walk-out survey.
The scope of the survey work is defined.
What is the area? (A printout/Tablet view of the area boundary line on a map)
If there are already proposed routes and other relevant info they can be made visible in the printout or via a Tablet.

We can use a checklist.
For example (for certain, this is not a complete list):

Survey materials:

  • GPS device, with direct import of items & coordinates into GoogleEarth and the ITSimplicity Solutions software
  • Tablet with survey forms and Autocad Mobile to sketch proposed routes and positions with direct import into the ITSimplicity Solutions software.
  • (Digital Camera)
  • (Jotting/sketch material and pencil)
  • (Distance measuring wheel)

Survey questions:


  • Are there existing aerial routes, poles, facade?
  • Are there existing duct routes, manholes/handholes, equipment?
  • What is the ID of the pole, manhole/handhole, equipment?
  • What is the quality of the existing infrastructure, condition of poles, free ducts/sub-ducts?
  • Can you propose a route (aerial/duct/facade/else)?
  • If digging is involved: what is the terrain, surface type?
  • For any proposed routes, where are which obstacles? (Highway, bridge, river, railway, construction site, difficult terrain etc)
  • Photographs can be added to clarify routes, existing infrastructure and to prove that the survey is actually carried out.
  • What are the GPS coordinates?


  • What is the type of premises/FTU (household/shop, industrial, bank/office, 4G/5G cell site)?
  • How many FTU (Fiber termination unit) or households per building are there?
  • What is/are the ID per FTU (housenumber(s), buildingname)?
  • Is the building to be connected via aerial/duct/facade/else?
  • Is there a visible entrypoint of the building (coordinate/sketch)?
  • If there is an existing drop, what are the coordinates of this drop (sketch) or to which pole is the building connected?
  • Are there special requirements, additional lengths (how much)?
  • What are the GPS coordinates?

Flexible network design

As a network designer / engineer you have all possible ways to create your best network design by using the:

  • Manual
  • Semi-automatic
  • Automatic network design functions

The designer / engineer stays in total control to modify the design at any time.

This customizable FTTH network engineering software is made for very large network designs and many concurrent designers but can also be used for smaller designs (industrial, business area etc.).

FTTH design and cadastral data

This Autocad (Map3D)-add-on works with the ease, speed and functionality of regular Autocad  (Map3D) and produces all fundamental & installer-ready detailed FTTH network designs.

The software offers fully automated FTTH P2P and GPON calculations within the Autocad (Map3D) environment.

It has simple to use functions to:

  • Manipulate and modify a network design
  • Access the network materials and labor data

It is now very easy to create detailed FTTH network designs with dynamic text and automatic labeling, automatic cable design and line-trace functions.

All network design quantities and cost details are direct available.

Regarding scenarios and creating a detailed network, FTTH design.

By automating, sequencing, and simplifying components and processes, our design and planning software helps analyse and visualize scenarios easily and quickly, providing the information needed to support financial business case scenario planning. Using site survey findings, initial estimations of BoQ, BoL and BoM can be enhanced as part of a highly detailed design. Relying on our design & engineering solutions is the quick and easy way to build a solid business case for the topology and deployment options for your network and to be certain of investing in a robust, future-proof, cost efficient, high performance network. From concept to detailed design, development, building, and maintenance of networks for crowded cities or rural regions, with our integrated FTTH / FTTX software solutions, you have everything covered. Our network design software maps, configures, optimizes, and calculates the costs of network concepts in seconds. Changes and variations are easy to implement while designing and even after installation.
