Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and Cable TV (CATV) networks present unique documentation challenges compared to more traditional point-to-point telecom networks. Wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM), and optical splitters are common features of FTTH and CATV networks, each delivering service to multiple endpoints via a single fiber. Special considerations must be made to accurately document this architecture, when a single fiber services multiple endpoints.

OSPINSIGHT is uniquely suited for this challenge. Through years of research and careful collaboration with major service providers, we’ve fine-tuned a portfolio of tools and features to make documentation easy. In OSPINSIGHT v8.0, we’ve made multiple improvements to both our splitter and wavelength features. Additionally, we’ve partnered with FiberPlanIt by ComSof, streamlining the design and planning phase for these networks, and jumpstarting the documentation and maintenance process afterwards.

“The exact savings is hard to calculate, but it is safe to say we have already saved many thousands of dollars in repairs due to preventative maintenance. And when you factor in keeping our customers through better service, some of them are worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.”
“Determining the number of miles of cable in any given tax zone has been an arduous task. But it is very important … don’t want to make the tax man mad! Before OSPInSight I could make a good guess after doing a lot of research. Now, it is almost just pushing the right button.”
