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 firstname.lastname@example.org
. If you ask nicely they'll even send you a demoware CD-ROM.
Hope this helps.
