Fiber Network Management Software

Fiber optic technology is the backbone of network infrastructure. It’s the preferred cable medium due to its many advantages over copper and coax. As demand for high-speed and reliable connectivity continues to escalate, fiber network expansion and operation is - and will remain - a high priority for service providers. Efficiently rolling out and effectively managing a high performing fiber network that optimizes resources can only be achieved with support tools designed for this purpose.

FTTx rollout, operation and service assurance are complicated activities that service providers seek to expedite, automate and simplify. What’s needed is complete and accurate network documentation and tools for planning, network design, and resource optimization. FNT’s software for FTTx gives service providers the tools they need to lay the foundation for a robust and future-ready fiber optic network.

Advantages of FNT’s Fiber Network Management Software

Use Resources Wisely

Plan infrastructure and perform tasks properly from the beginning to eliminate the risk of unnecessary equipment purchases and time-consuming troubleshooting, repairs and rework of improperly installed infrastructure.

Plan Future Expansion on Actual Documentation

Accurate data about the current state of the network is always available for planning further network rollouts. Data stays synchronized with automatic updates to the documentation when any changes to any part of the network are executed, so correct data about the current state of the network is available to all processes that need it. Up to date network data ensures sufficient network capacity for the expanded network and proper allocation of resources.

Provide Exceptional Service Assurance

Reduce service disruptions, slow speeds and other performance issues with a well-planned and managed fiber network. Operate a more resilient network with back-up options and fast incident handling procedures defined and implemented.

Contribute to Achieving Sustainability Goals

Optimizing the network infrastructure during the planning process eliminates waste from the get-go. Accurate capacity needs and overview of network components limits resource usage to what’s really necessary. Capturing and reporting on CO2 and other eco factors gives real data about your carbon footprint so you can adjust as needed.

Highlights of FNT’s Fiber Network Management Software

FNT’s solution for fiber network management accelerates and facilitates the FTTx rollout process from beginning to end and simplifies ongoing operation and service assurance. At the heart of the software is a network digital twin, or virtual representation of the network infrastructure. It presents an accurate replica of all physical, logical and virtual assets, topologies, and relationships in a centralized repository. This provides a reliable basis for planning and making decisions at every stage of the fiber rollout - from initial analysis of the target area to ongoing operation of the new fiber network.

The solution incorporates real-world data such as geodata, which is crucial for planning efficient and cost-effective routes that consider terrain and other environmental factors. Once optimal routes are identified it helps ensure network resources are used most efficiently. Integrated work order management and mobile access to network inventory data ensure the plans handed over for construction are executed properly and that any changes are promptly documented in the network digital twin. This guarantees the as-is state of the network is always accurate for ongoing operation, incident resolution and further expansion.

Integrated, Central Data Model

All network resource data is documented in a central data repository that covers end-to-end connections with assigned services to signal routes. It includes not just asset data, but also relationships and dependencies between them. Encompasses all technologies and layers, from the building level through physical, logical, and virtual, up to and including applications and services.

Openness and Flexibility

Highly configurable and extendable data model enables the import of data from other systems as well as extensive integration with third-party systems for automated data exchange. Extensive integration framework which includes generative open APIs, ETL, Reconciliation and Notification functions.

Location Management and Georeferencing

Integration with GIS tools and OSM databases provides geodata, street data, PoPs (Point of Presence), customer sites and location-based analytics to the rollout process. Data is integrated into network design and planning, and network infrastructure data is displayed on maps in 2D/3D visualizations, to improve efficiency and yield better results.

Enabler for Service Assurance

Provisions device and topology configurations to fault management and monitoring systems. Enriches alarm information with affected location, topology and customer reports.

Integrated Work Order Management

Systematically coordinates and tracks tasks, resources and processes involved in the rollout for better coordination, visibility, and efficiency of task execution.

Mobile Access to Inventory Data

Access to real-time data about inventory and work orders from any location enables instant communication, data collection and task management when and where it’s needed.

FAQ: The Fiber Rollout Phenomenon

What is fiber rollout?

Fiber rollout refers to the process of deploying fiber-optic cables to expand or upgrade telecommunications networks. Fiber-optic cables use light signals to transmit video, audio, and other forms of data versus traditional cable mediums that use electrical impulses.

What are the main differences between fiber and other cable mediums?

Coaxial cable is commonly used by cable operators, telephone companies, and internet providers to transmit data, video, and voice communications. It’s been around since the early 20th century but today its limitations are causing it to be replaced by fiber optic cable.


Fiber optics offer many advantages over coax and other types of cable. Most notably:

  • Higher bandwidth and faster speeds. This is important for uninterrupted streaming, fast downloads, and reduced latency.
  • Better reliability. Fiber optic cables are less prone to breakage, corrosion, and environmental factors.
  • More cost-effective. Initial installation cost of fiber optic infrastructure is higher, but long-term benefits make it the more economical investment. Once installed there will be reduced maintenance expenses, minimal signal loss, and it has a longer lifespan.
  • Eco-friendly. It promotes environmental sustainability by consuming dramatically less energy than the alternatives.
  • It’s a future-proof technology. This means it can handle the increasing demand for data transmission. In the data-driven world, fiber optics provide the necessary infrastructure to support future technological advancements.


Who is rolling out fiber networks?

Fiber rollout projects are often undertaken by telecommunications companies, internet service providers (ISPs), or government agencies to improve broadband infrastructure, enhance internet connectivity, and meet growing demand for high-speed internet services.

Other industries where large amounts of data need to be transmitted simultaneously are also switching to fiber, since fiber offers significantly higher bandwidth capacities. Examples are those that rely heavily on video conferencing, cloud computing, and data centers.
