DECATUR, AL — 3-GIS, a SaaS provider advancing network management technologies for fiber networks, has signed a strategic agreement to deliver the speed of Comsof network planning software with its 3-GIS network routing and planning tools to add value to telecom customers. Comsof is the leading provider of FTTx planning and design tool, Comsof Fiber. 3-GIS and Comsof share a common goal of delivering constant innovation to accelerate the deployment of fiber network assets. With this exciting new partnership, customers will be able to:

  • Discover the speed of design automation and ​save up to 90% design time​
  • Reduce rework​ in planning and engineering due to fiber assignment issues by 30%
  • Make 1 entry​ into systems throughout the planning to as-built process instead of 4
  • Decrease​ potential of human error by 75%​ while remaining in full control of the design process
  • Create buildable fiber network designs with ​unsurpassed precision

Both 3-GIS and Comsof are Esri partners. All of this is possible because of the unique combination of algorithms that integrate real world design rules and optimization of network documentation based on GIS data. The FTTx and 5G markets can boost their ROI significantly using GIS data in conjunction with rules-based automation and data connectivity modeling. The agreement creates a solution for the customer that delivers faster results to the customers. Raf Meersman, CEO of Comsof, stated, “Our 20+ years of experience in the telecom industry taught us how to make powerful partnerships. Talking to the 3-GIS team quickly made clear both companies have a great cultural fit. We promote agility, innovation, and a common ambition to take our clients to the next levels of automation. We are convinced that our integrated solution will benefit our current and future clients." “At 3-GIS we're always looking for ways to solve time-consuming and challenging problems through our large investment in internal R&D. There are occasions when it makes sense to couple those R&D efforts with solutions from others in the industry who have distinguished themselves as leaders in their respective space,” says Dustin Sutton, President 3-GIS. “This is one of those opportunities as 3-GIS | Network ExpressTM will leverage Comsof’s powerful automation and optimization engine inside our industry-leading asset management platform. This alliance will give companies the ability to create constructible designs quickly through automation while also supporting downstream processes and interdepartmental collaboration. Ultimately, Network ExpressTM will not only help companies design networks faster, but build networks faster and more cost-effectively.” If you would like to learn more about Network ExpressTM and Comsof, please visit: https://info.3-gis.com/automated-network-design.
