Maximize your Productivity through Automation!

Automated fiber facility placement –

Drafting is a breeze with the automation tools to draw fiber features, thus reducing the time spent creating design prints.

Design criteria driven facility calculations –

Calculates cable sizes, terminal sizes, terminal tail lengths and drop lengths based upon user defined design criteria, improving design accuracy, boosting efficiency and saving time.

User-defined material and labor costs

Material and labor costs, including construction and splicing labor, are based upon actual material and labor units, not just across-the-board “per route mile” calculations.

Staking sheet creation and tabulation –

Creating staking sheets couldn’t be easier with tools to assist the engineer in getting the project out to construction quickly.

Detailed reporting –

Broadband Express provides reports that compile information from the design and allow for easy analysis and job costing.
