cableScout® overview

cableScout®, the network management software

Using cableScout® enables companies to comprehensively manage in one system all types and topologies of fibre optic and copper networks together with the transmission and connection technologies installed such as xWDM, xPON, xDSL and FTTx from one national location through to signal level.

A seamless interaction between geographic, functional and logical information ensures that the company is provided with a comprehensive overview of the overall actual situation of the network at all times. This considerably increases the efficiency and momentum of the network administration and thanks to the ensuing cost savings, the investment in cableScout® pays for itself very quickly.

Users are supported in their daily work by a whole range of special functions. These include plausibility checks, route search over different media and transmission technologies, capacity and utilisation statistics, work orders and end-to-end reporting of signals.

The central data storage and the management functions, analysis options and overview graphics supplied by the system provide users across the company with access to all the network information they need at the touch of a button. Questionscan be answered at the touch of a button.

  • Which is the most cost-effective route for the service to be switched on?
  • Does the route have any excess fibre capacity?
  • What information does the technician need to switch on a planned route?
  • Are the existing capacities sufficient for connecting a new customer?

  • Which customers are affected by a fault and which services must be re-routed in order not to infringe the terms of an SLA?

  • Simplified documentation, planning and administration of wide area, metropolitan area, access and local networks.
  • Support of star, ring, line, bus and tree topologies.
  • Comprehensive administration of the physical and logical network layers.
  • Realistic graphics such as geo-referenced maps, network structure, building view with floors and rooms, cabinet displays with incorporated components, end-device display, duct courses, manhole views and fibre/wire courses with switched on signals.

  • Complete coverage of xWDM, SDH/PDH, xDSL and xPON broadband technologies.

  • Planning and administration of all FTTx structures (P2P, P2MP)

"cableScout® enables UPC Austria to map its complex and interconnected fibre optic topology in a centralised and hierarchically structured way. cableScout® is also used to define and document the parameters required for network expansion ranging from laying and splicing technology to passive connections and the active transmission level."
