Bentley - Inside Plant Network Design Software
Get fast and precise design and documentation of your network facilities with Bentley Inside Plant. Speed projects with visual layout of headends, points of presence, central offices, data centers, and other sites. Get consistent designs and save time with common equipment, layout templates, connection rules, and standard reports. Speed field and office workflows by sharing an intelligent network model across your enterprise.
- Cut drafting time by defining a library of racks, cards, and other equipment for designers to use
- Reduce design time with pre-configured floorplan templates and drag-and-drop placement of rack equipment
- Avoid errors by defining valid card-to-slot, jumper cable-to-port, and other connections
- Save time with automatic bills of material, connection reports, wire runs, and circuit traces
- Share your network model with the enterprise through open data standards and an open API
- Maintain a precise end-to-end network model by integrating with Bentley Fiber and/or Bentley Coax
Configure communications equipment specifications
Ensure consistency across projects with configurable engineering and display specifications for equipment. Your administrators get simple user interfaces to modify and extend pre-configured equipment libraries. Support includes all requisite equipment types for coaxial, fiber, and HFC networks.
Create network schematics, diagrams, and reports
Publish precise documents directly from your intelligent network model. Support field work with network traces, facility diagrams, vault schematics, and more. Create bills of materials and other reports for a project, service area, or facility. Configure reports to print or import to other systems.
Design and document inside plant
Use templates, design rules, and equipment libraries to quickly design headends, points of presence, central offices, and other sites. Create automatic bills of material, connection, wire run, circuit, and other reports. Integrate with your outside plant designs to model the end-to-end network.
Design fiber networks
Design all requisite fiber architectures including FTTx. Leverage tools to support wavelength multiplexing and demultiplexing, as well as splicing and network tracing. Perform circuit allocation and bandwidth management on an individual fiber basis. Route and manage conduit within duct systems.
Design hybrid fiber coax networks
Model all equipment, connections, and signal performance from the physical fiber port at the headend to the coax port at the subscriber. Leverage precision layout tools, a rich GIS environment, and real-time design verification to complete projects up to three times faster than competing solutions.
Model networks from end-to-end
Create and maintain an end-to-end network model with integrated design and documentation of your inside and outside plant. Model connectivity between subscribers and your headend or central office. Perform network traces and access detailed engineering data for any network device.
