Communications service providers (CSPs) use network planning software tools and systems to help their engineers quickly and efficiently plan their networks. Driven by the growth of video-based services, network planning software is a USD182 million market worldwide, growing at a 7% CAGR. Communications service providers (CSPs) use network planning software tools and systems to help their engineers quickly and efficiently plan their networks. Driven by the growth of video-based services, network planning software is a USD182 million market worldwide, growing at a 7% CAGR.

Network planning systems help the CSP’s engineers estimate the required network capacity and implement the best network configuration. Capacity planning’s goal is to add the right capacity at the right place at the right time, to provide the right customer experience, without expensive overbuilds. The aim of network optimisation is to plan and implement the optimal network capacity and connectivity to provide the desired services at the planned quality levels.

Historically, network planning is a function of individual engineers working with a toolkit of many home-grown and purchased tools. During the past several years, the market has started to shift to more-integrated software systems, leading to new capabilities and architecture for existing vendors’ products, as well as opportunities for new vendors.

This report gives a view of the current state of the network planning market, a forecast of spending growth and an extensive explanation of the changes that are taking place as this market shifts from ‘old-world’ handcrafted engineering to modern, integrated automation. It also includes information from a CSP survey that Analysys Mason conducted in late 2009 on the subject of network build and roll-out processes and needs.
