Some changes driving telecommunication transitions include Software Defined Networks (SDN), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet Of Things (IoT), Time-division multiplexing (TDM) and now 5G!


As we continue shifting to a Smart Grid, Smart City model, there will be exponential growth in interconnected devices that will transmit trillions of bits of data continuously.  The move to smarter cities, while exciting, is putting tremendous pressure on the telecom industry to manage, secure and support these complex networks.  Quantum computing has emerged as a potentially viable solution to this challenge by solving complex computational problems.  While the FAE Telecom simulator does not require quantum computing today, it offers new and exciting opportunities for the future.

FAE can help your organization navigate the changing tech landscape and design your network to adapt to the future today.

FAE Simulator Capabilities

FAE Telecom’s GridSimNet captures with 99.99% accuracy simulation of all devices installed. This data is used to help our customers plan, test and verify network plans and their total cost of ownership (TOC) of any design – before implementation. All the tests and design plans can be saved and used for operational training for the network change strategies.


All Purpose Transport Network (APTN)

APTN design philosophy is unique to the FAE Telecom solution allowing components of the network to be drawn from multiple suppliers and technologies. Ensuring quality and compatibility of all these components before, during and after installation is going to be critical to the successful operation of any utility telecom modernization initiative.

Software Defined Network (SDN)

Software-defined networking technology enables dynamic, programmatically efficient network configuration in order to improve network performance and monitoring making it more like cloud computing than traditional network management.


FAE simulators enable telecom engineers to setup a scalable simulated network with hundreds of thousands of devices and simulate different combinations of routers, switches, firewalls, WLAN controllers from many different manufacturers, without having to purchase one or impact the production network. All the simulation tests and design plans can be saved and used for operational training as the design is deployed.


FAE Telecom was formed to provide a unique set of services that address the requirements of Critical
Infrastructure networks that utilize legacy protocols and applications. These networks present
challenges in both migrating to packet based converged infrastructures and meeting today’s federally
mandated security requirements.
