INNOVATION IN COMMUNICATIONS NETWORKS
Rainbow Design Services
Comcast Memphis Walkout Project
Louisville, Kentucky, United States
Comcast Memphis retained Rainbow Design Services to field survey roughly
7,300 miles of a cable TV fiber and coaxial network in Louisville, Ky. Thousands
of pole and pedastal locations, hundreds of splicing enclosures, and more than
30,000 physical connections were surveyed and modeled in less than 12 months.
Rainbow Design Services deployed Bentley Fiber, Bentley Coax, and Bentley
Inside Plant to document the cable network. Communication and coordination
between field staff and design/engineering teams in the office was a challenge.
Bentley SELEC Tserver enabled the teams to work seamlessly from any location
and improved strand drafting daily production by more than 30 percent.
Bentley provides software solutions that allow our team to see our projects through all
phases of a fiber-optic network design. By combining these efforts in Bentley software, we
are able to be more efficient in providing services from the field, to the office, to the client.
