Generate automated high-level fiber designs
Easy planning and cost optimization
Together with contractors, KPN is rolling out its fiber access network across the Netherlands (called Fiber to the Home or FTTH). KPN's High-Level Design FTTx API generates an automated design for laying a fiber (FTTH) network and other fiber solutions (FTTx) in a specific area. This allows you as a contractor or intermediary to get insight into what is needed to roll out fiber cables in a certain area. The API uses the addresses of an area as input. The result is a detailed calculation of all cables, trenches and ducts that are needed. This way, you can make a ground plan and calculate the costs of laying fiber solutions.
How it works
The High-Level Design FTTx API uses multiple algorithms to create a fiber design. It uses a clustering algorithm to decide which household connects to which active device (the distribution point). Secondly, the API uses routing algorithms to connect the households to the distribution points, splitter cabinets and the POP (Point of Presence). Finally, it calculates the total amount of cables and digging in the area.
Why use the High-Level Design FTTx API
Save yourself time
Make a complete high-level design within minutes, instead of calculating fiber cable lengths and trench positions manually yourself.
Comply with network requirements
Always stay up to date with the current network requirements from KPN (PvE: Program of Requirements).
Easily compare scenarios
Run a selected area twice and compare scenarios. Take a residential area in the first API call and add a business area in the second API call. Afterwards, you can analyze the difference in costs and design.
