The solution was prepared for the telecom operators and companies that plan, design and build FTTH networks. The application architecture is based on the QGIS geospatial platform. We encourage you to get familiar with the full version of Geospatial Network Inventory.
Design and Implementation of a Practical FTTH Network
According to its guidelines until every citizen of the European Union should have access to 30 Mbps Internet bandwidth and at least half of them will have access to bandwidth not slower than Mbps. Poland is one of the countries in which the Agenda is being implemented. Thanks to European Union funds many local operators can compete with large telecom providers as regards high-speed broadband services. Unfortunately, applying for funding requires a great deal of work necessary to draw up proper documentation, including, among other things, development of planned FTTH Fiber To The Home network conceptual maps.
Moreover, currently there are no GIS-based IT tools available to support the potential beneficiaries with the preparation of documentation. The complexity of the problem is even more complicated by the fact that such a software should enable a creation of documentation in accordance with specific program guidelines e. As we have extensive experience in the telecommunications industry, entities applying for EU funds asked us to create software supporting the development of FTTH network concept map.
Products generated by developed software was to significantly speed up the application preparation process. Due to the high popularity, widespread availability, openness of the software and immense functional abilities, it felt natural to select QGIS as platform to serve as a basis for our solution. According to the guidelines of FTTH Council Europe, it is crucial to first prepare a plan considering both the technical aspect placement of cables, splice closures, splitters and economic aspect demand based on real address points data.
To have the ability to plan network topology efficiently it is required to have among other things:. All these items were connected in QGIS platform. Below there is a brief description of how we realized the project and what functional items were incorporated to create one solution.
In order to achieve our goal, we needed few functional components apart from the standard GIS platform:. The entire solution was based on the concept of so called wizards which realize the process of preparing the FTTx network technical concept step by step.
Algorithmic complexity was encapsulated within models in the form of designed flow, which use existing QGIS algorithms and calls dedicated scripts.
To prevent the results of subsequent analyses from getting mixed up, we provided a plugin called WorkContextTracer which groups our work in so called work contexts. Network algorithms based on the graph functions available in GRASS were enriched by adding the telecommunication scripts.
We introduced a concept of demand clustering which enables to use both K-means and hierarchical methods to aggregate demand points. Operators also needed an association between created network nodes and address points to estimate the individual cost of each network branch.
To complete this task, we created scripts that performs this operation storing results in local SpatiaLite database. The data needed to be exportable to spreadsheet, so we used free software library to fulfil this requirement. The user started work by opening a new work context and specifying an input layer of address points to be analysed.
Using the standard QGIS interface, the user could establish a set of demands on address points and finally provide the parameters necessary for further steps of the algorithm. Without having information about the existing civil infrastructure, a properly filtered OpenStreet road network were used as a routing layer.
Scipy algorithms fed with input parameters, clustered the address points into demand aggregates marking them with separate colour indicating its assignment to particular cluster. Having all address points clustered, user initiated the steps of high level network planning providing layers prepared in the previous steps and a layer with GPON network starting point. Upon the completion of the algorithm, in QGIS there are geometry objects representing planned cables and splice closure locations.
At this stage, the user already had all pieces of the information to develop a high level FTTx network technical concept. The final part was generation of the data report spreadsheet showing all calculated data from several different perspectives. Thanks to the use of the QGIS platform as well as its extension capabilities, we managed to develop a free open source solution allowing telecommunication operators to prepare the documents necessary to submit application for co-financing in the EU program implementing European Digital Agenda.
By combining flexible vector algorithms with the telecom engineering scripts, we enabled the practical use of mathematical algorithms in solving real problems concerning telecommunication network planning. The user operates on understandable data scope municipality, building, road whereas transformation of this information into a mathematical model is hidden from the user. Generation of data needed for applying for EU funds: network concept map, cable and splice closure report with serving areas assignment.
Possibility to precisely determine the construction and depreciation costs of each part of the network with calculation of the cost of connecting each address point. The solution is a completely free open source tool. QGIS 3. To have the ability to plan network topology efficiently it is required to have among other things: access to GIS data, automation of GIS data processing, application of network optimization algorithms, application of GPON network engineering rules.
Ability to customize tool with specific EU program guidelines in a given country. The big accuracy of the results corresponding to real dimensions. Possibility to prioritize address points from the most profitable to unprofitable.
