Network Design Decisions Inc. (NDDI) offers a unique network design service to allow communities and service providers to explore the options – quickly and inexpensively. The result is a network design and roadmap specific to the needs and priorities of the community, at a fraction of the cost of traditional consulting engineers. Our design service is based on our proprietary software that allows for interactive design and evaluation of communications networks.
With a mission to help communities access the full potential of high-speed broadband, NDDI offers a unique software-based solution (NOCPlan) to cost-effectively model design options for upgrading to or building a new high-speed broadband local network, integrating both demand and cost factors.
Because the needs of each community are unique, NOCPlan–Network Options for Communities–produces customized network design with cost information based upon the priorities set by the community leadership. The NOCPlan solution allows you to deliver comparative designs for communities that want to explore different speed and service scenarios.
