Hi, the Munich company CDS has a GIS-based solution
for integrated network planning and documentation.
This has now replaced Smallworld in several major
European cable operators including KDG - 15 million
homes passed! They also provide solutions for even
the smallest of operators. The great thing about
AND (Advanced Network Design) is that you engineer
your bulid/upgrade as you draw. This is in contrast
to Lode Data, which has seperate drawing and calculation
functions. It actually simulates the HFC network
both accurately and efficiently. AND also provides
interfaces to Acterna Equipment allowing you to
compare measurements with the product's calculations.
An SNMP-based network monitoring gateway is currently
in the pipeline.
If you want more data about
AND just send the company an e-mail to
If you ask nicely they'll even send you a demoware
Hope this helps.
