Stofa selects AND for network design and

documentation

 

Stofa A/S, the Danish triple play operator, has selected the AND software solutions

for the design and documentation of its cable and FTTx networks.

“Today we have over 400,000 customers with high expectations” explains Kai Skov,

CTO at Stofa. “They insist on reliability and performance. We realised our existing

documentation solutions were inadequate for both network evolution and cost-effective

network maintenance; it was an issue that needed to be addressed.

We set out to find a solution that considered all aspects of access networks, including

design, documentation and engineering, from the headend to the outlet in the customer’s

home. We were quickly impressed with the efficiency and intuitiveness

of the AND software as well as the competence demonstrated by their team.

The first operative steps show we have made a very good decision.“

“Stofa has an excellent reputation in the industry as a forward-thinking and innovative

operator. To have been awarded this project is a clear endorsement of the quality of the

AND software” adds Diarmuid Kelly, Director of Sales International at AND Solution. “Within

a few months of receiving the order we have not only installed the

AND SystemSolution at Stofa, but we’ve also completed the initial migration

and have gone live. Now we’re looking forward to the further challenges ahead.”

AND Solution GmbH develops and markets the AND (Advanced network Design) software

solutions, which are deployed by leading cable and fibre operators for the design and

documentation of their networks. In addition the company provides a comprehensive suite

of services including consulting, data migration, training, etc.

Over 60 million in AND documented connections make it Europe’s No. 1 with a steadily

growing global reach. The owner-led software house was founded in 1988 and has

its headquarter in Munich, Germany.
