To build better fiber networks, we first need to simplify FTTx design.
FOND is our flagship, web-based Fiber Optic Network Design Software
that has been built over the past decade to connect data, OSP rules, and technology;
delivering significant results across the rollout of FTTx Networks.
Automate monotonous FTTx design work
Generate optimized FTTx network designs
Make higher quality, data-driven decisions
Create a digital and collaborative rollout
Generating and Controling FTTx designs and BOMs in minutes
FOND brings together your geospatial data, and OSP engineering rules to generate feasibility, high level, and low level designs at the click of a button.
Generate the lowest cost FTTH (PON / GPON / NGPON+) Network design that adheres to your specific outside plant rules.
Automated BOM Generation
Instantly generate a Bill of Materials that is derived from the underlying network design, and is configured to produce quantities in terms of the specific manufacturer of your equipment which can also include labor rates.
Cable Path Preferencing
Add in your own preferencing options for segments of underground and aerial data to force FOND to use, or stay away from.
OSP Equipment Placement
You can move and edit equipment in the automatically generated network design to support your own preferences.
Digital Design Sharing
Easily share and collaborate across designs with your teams, SMEs and contractors to make high quality FTTx deployment decisions.
Splice Tables Generation
Easily generate the splicing requirements from your low level design needed by in-field construction teams.
Automated Construction Pack Generation
Take your high quality low level design and automatically generate high quality construction pack assets for construction teams.
Automated Fixed Wireless Design
Whether it’s Point to point, point to multipoint, or FSOC, Within FOND designing cost optimal fiber networks that augment the last mile with wireless technologies is easy.
Automated Front / Backhaul Design
Generate an optimized fiber network backbone that connects your Macro Cells, or Small Cells for a better cellular Network (5G, 4G, 4G LTE).
Managing OSP Rules to ensure holistic control across your network design
FOND gives you greater control over your Outside Plant rules to drive greater compliance while supporting faster deployments at scale.
MST, MPT, FST, Terminal, Boundary Box, Drop terminal – The function of the Tier 1 Closure is to service the Tier 1 Cable (aka Drops) to the customer. In a distributed split network, these hubs can house the Secondary splitters.
Cabinet, PFP, FHD, Hub, Splitter Cabinet – The Tier 2 Hub can have a range of sizes. While it’s always called a Cabinet in our schema, in practice it can also represent a splice closure with a small number of splitters in it.
Central Office, Hut, Exchange and Hub are all frequently used to describe the location which houses the OLTs for the PON network. This is typically where the only active equipment will be housed in an FTTH network.
Tier 1 Cables
These cables connect the customer addresses back to the Tier 1 Closure. Commonly called Drop cables.
Length: 250ft | 500ft | 750ft | 1000ft | 1500ft
Tier 2 Cables
This is any cable that connects the T1 Closure to the T2 Cabinet. It could be a cable that is manufactured along with the MST head, or it could be a cable that the Tier 1 Hub gets spliced into.
Size: 1f | 24f | 72f | 288f
Tier 3 Cables
This is a cable that connects the T3 Cabinet (typically where the OLT and active equipment reside) to the T2 Cabinet.
Size: 72f | 144f | 288f | 432f
Giving you more control of data to influence your deployment
FOND is a platform that supports your team to source, validate, control and manage geospatial data.
