Company description

Comsof is a spin-off of Ghent University with head-quarters located in the North of Ghent. For more than 18 years, Comsof has been very successful in the development of an innovative and intelligent software called FiberPlanIT for the design and optimisation of FTTx (Fiber-To-The-x) networks. FiberPlanIT uses GIS data (also used in e.g. Google Maps) to get an accurate view of the physical reality of the access network, and allows to perform cost optimisation and high level simulations regarding the topology and technology in a highly automated way. The core of the platform are the in-house developed optimisation algorithms that are unique worldwide, offering Comsof a leading position in its global market with customers in more than 40 countries. In 2017, Comsof was amongst the 3 finalists for the Lion of the Export, a prestigious price from the Flemish government that rewards outstanding accomplishments in export.

Comsof has recently started a research project called CrossPlanIT for the extension of FiberPlanIT to other utility networks like electricity networks, smart grids and heat networks.
