FNT Cable Management Software
Simply Know Everything about Your Own Network Infrastructure

FNT Cable Management Software

The Cable Management solution from FNT allows you to document, plan, and manage any internal IT network, cable, and network infrastructures as part of inside plant management. It is equally easy to map extensive telecommunications or broadband networks (e.g., FTTx) in a wide area network, city, or local loop using outside plant management. All types of glass fiber and copper network topologies, including all the deployed technologies, are described using georeferenced representation in FNT GeoMaps or with the aid of schematic network plans via netspiders. The FNT Cable Management solution gives you complete transparency into your network so you can manage even complex infrastructures efficiently.

Advantages of our solution for Cable Management

Reduce your operating costs and incident processes by up to 50 %

The integrated FNT Command product suite allows you to operate complex, heterogeneous network infrastructures more efficiently. All cable and network information is linked via the comprehensive data model and can be instantly evaluated. In addition to providing optimum planning support, this makes it possible to locate and correct errors more quickly when incidents occur.

Optimize the cost of cable network expansion and operation

Optimal evaluation of all existing data as a decision-making aid gives you an overview of the physical network all the way through to the services. You can evaluate and plan the wiring of cables to services across all layers, while staying in control of network resources and the associated costs at all times.

Accelerate your planning by up to 100 %

FNT Command's comprehensive, sophisticated planning functions allow you to achieve faster, consistent planning and documentation. Graphical georeferenced representations of networks, signal tracing, and auto-routing, plus an integrated change management process for handling all changes, help to facilitate routine tasks.

Stay in control – transparent cable and network infrastructures ensure that you stay on top of cable management.

Highlights of Our Cable Management Solution

Comprehensive Graphical Documentation and Planning

Our solution allows comprehensive graphical documentation and planning of entire cable routes, including all nodes, trays, tray sections, and ducts. The photorealistic representation of network cabinets including the equipped devices, which shows actual and planned states, helps to achieve this.

Integrated, central data model

In our integrated, central data model you can analyze information on all infrastructure dependencies from the building level through physical, logical, and virtual assets to applications and services, including business services.

Continuous End-to-End Signal Tracing

Experience continuous end-to-end signal tracing across the entire cable infrastructure in both actual and planning views, based on the relevant geo-referenced nodes and routes in the GIS representation.

Auto-Routing Functionality

An auto-routing functionality for the cable infrastructure that allows optimal automated routing, with work orders for the required patches and splices being created for the route automatically.

Visualization Using Schematic Network Representations

Graphical network views can be generated in schematic form, e.g., as a cable netspider. This kind of representation is very helpful when it comes to activities, such as power level calculation in an HFC network based on a graphical overview of the situation in the network.

Graphical and Schematic Applications

Dedicated, task-specific graphical and schematic applications allow activity relating to ducts, duct bundles, junction boxes and splice plans, distributor assignment, and cable and fiber management, as well as equipment and component management.

Georeferenced Representation of Networks

FNT GeoMaps provides expanded functionality to ensure cable networks are optimized to handle the demands of the digital world. It combines FNT’s Cable and Outside Plant Management solution with Esri’s geospatial tools. The result is fully integrated GIS capability that enables more knowledge-based decisions about critical infrastructure.

White Paper

The Future of Cable Management

The world is becoming more digital: network infrastructures are constantly growing and their complexity is increasing. The IoT and Industry 4.0 brings billions of new connected devices. At the same time, security and availability requirements are increasing. One thing is clear: managing network operation and expansion efficiently in the future will require an inside view of the infrastructure. Learn more in our white paper!

Success Story

On course with your network together with FNT

A major international airport places particularly high demands on network infrastructure and solutions for its management. Not only are IT operations safety critical, but pressure of time and pressure to succeed are enormous. Therefore, Fraport AG, operator of Frankfurt/Main airport, relies on FNT Command for the management of cables, cable trays and similar. “FNT Command is the central memory of our communications infrastructure”, says Klaus Schultz-Fademrecht, Senior Manager Networks at Fraport AG.
