Stofa selects AND for network design and
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.
