GIS Network Engineering and Communications Solution

Design and Manage Better and Faster Networks

Your complete network design and management solution. Use digitalization of your network a part of your way of life.

What is OpenComms Designer?

OpenComms Designer is a GIS client-based network engineering solution that enables you to plan, engineer, construct, and maintain your fiber, coax, and hybrid fiber-coax networks. You can easily integrate new network designs performed in-house or by contractors working either connected or disconnected. This flexible working environment reduces budget and schedule risks, all while increasing overall productivity. Create intelligent models in a rich engineering and GIS environment that includes the precision of MicroStation with interactive signal calculations. OpenComms Designer completes the convergence of Bentley Fiber, Bentley Coax, Bentley Inside Plant, and Expert Designer for Communications.

Licensing options

One-time purchase with support

Perpetual License with SELECT

A perpetual license of Bentley software is a one-time purchase, with a yearly maintenance subscription, called SELECT. This includes 24/7/365 technical support, learning resources, and the ability to exchange licenses for other software once a year. With SELECT, you will benefit from:

  • License pooling, so you can access your software from multiple computers
  • Access additional Bentley software with Term Licenses, which allow you to pay for what you use without the upfront cost of purchasing a perpetual license.

Annual renewal quotes are delivered directly to your inbox, and our experienced Renewal Representatives are available to answer your questions and guide you through any changes you’d like to make.
