FTTH homes passed costs and bill of materials could have taken months to calculate using traditional manual analysis but could be done in a week using IQGeo's Comsof Fiber

David Renehan, Principal Access Network Strategist, eir


eir needed a solution to meet the Irish governments 2020 digital agenda by providing at least 30Mbps to every premise in Ireland. Manual network planning was slow, labour-intensive, and inflexible, making it challenging to rerun different design scenarios and respond to competitors’ moves. Outsourcing was considered but rejected for strategic reasons. They required efficient fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network planning tools to analyze design scenarios, estimate costs, and optimize FTTH rollout areas.


Implementing IQGeo’s Comsof Fiber software enhanced eirs FTTH planning process, providing quick simulations, accurate cost estimates, and a high-level bill of materials. With only two engineers, they streamlined their rollout strategy, saving time and costs. Comsof Fibers flexibility allowed for rapid design rule changes and simulations, optimizing resource utilization. It also provided valuable insights into linear density changes and homes passed costs, significantly improving eirs ability to meet government digital agenda requirements. 

In August 2022, IQGeo announced the acquisition of Comsof. Read the article in full on our news page
