OFS, a division of Furukawa Electric Co. Ltd., has released the OptiCost FTTx modeling service to help service providers, home developers, telecommunication companies, municipalities, and other network owners and operators identify optical network designs that fit their needs and enable low system and life cycle costs.

Models used to provide this service include guidelines for selecting solutions for single-family residences (SFR) and multi-dwelling units (MDU), as well as charts for splitter location and multiple cabinet planning.

The models also help providers gain an understanding of the complex relationship between all the costs of a network with graphical and numerical data that illustrate the tradeoffs associated with different design options.
