GE, iToolsOnline and FiberPlanIT join forces for FTTx Network Operators
Solution to showcase at upcoming FTTH Asia-Pacific Conference & Exposition in Jakarta

JAKARTA, May 11, 2015 - (ACN Newswire) - GE, iToolsOnline and FiberPlanIT have joined forces to create an integrated software solution for FTTx network operators needing to increase productivity and lower costs. The solution will be showcased at the upcoming FTTH Asia-Pacific Conference & Exposition in Jakarta, Indonesia.


The conference is the largest FTTH event in the region and will be held at the Shangri-La Hotel in Jakarta from 19th to 21st May 2015.

Attendees are invited to visit the GE booth for a demonstration of the solution (contact mark.humphreys@ge.com prior to the event for more information).

- FTTx Design & Build - Better, Faster, Cheaper

The integrated software solution has been proven to deliver time and cost savings to FTTx projects.

It covers the end-to-end FTTx network management lifecycle - from planning & design, through to network build, and on to service fulfillment & assurance.

According to Mark Simon, CEO at iToolsOnline, many network operators are failing to achieve the results they need from their FTTx deployments. "Network builds are high-risk undertakings," says Mark. "Ill-prepared operators run the risk of overspending - on both CAPEX and OPEX - and failing to achieve the end-user uptake they need to deliver a positive ROI. Our partnership with GE and FiberPlanIT allows us to offer an integrated solution that helps operators avoid the pitfalls of FTTx deployments and make the best financial and operational decisions at each stage of the process."

Raf Meersman, CEO at FiberPlanIT, explains some of the other challenges being faced: "Operators know that upgrading to FTTH is no longer a matter of if, but when. However, with so many architectures and topologies, they're finding it difficult to select the most economical and future-proof network design. With FiberPlanIT, operators can fully prepare their strategic business case and design the FTTH network far more efficiently. FiberPlanIT delivers an 8% reduction in deployment costs and a 90% faster design time, thus enabling an easier switch to fibre."

- Strategic Partnership

Mark Humphreys, Software Growth Leader at GE, explains the rationale behind the 3-way collaboration: "Our customers have important decisions to make - which areas to serve, choices about network design, and what supporting infrastructure to use. Our job is to help them make informed decisions when planning their network, get the right information to the right people at the right time, and find the efficiencies when building and operating the network. Bringing our respective solutions together allows us to deliver a more comprehensive end-to-end solution for the operator."
