Identifying the Problems

Traditional

building

deployment

is

a

capital

and

labor

intensive

effort

requiring

much

planning,

expertise,

and

coordination
.

Existing

methods

used

today

require

increased

communication

and

collaboration

with

other

organizations
.

Let’s

take

a

look

at

some

other

issues

operators

are

facing

G

customers

will

be

more

demanding

as

poor

in

building

coverage

is

already

a

major

cause

of

churn

today




To

support

higher

data

operators

must

improve

signal

quality

and

increase

capacity

devoted

to

in

building

coverage

ensuring

consumer

experience




Traditional

means

of

in

design

depend

heavily

on

individual

experience

and

the

engineers

“gut
-
feeling”

in

antenna

placement




Lack

of

proper

interference

calculations

from

outdoor

macro

Operators that anticipate these challenges, and begin planning for them
now, will have a
distinct advantage

and capitalize over slower networks.


the solution is …

Multiple Systems Supported

Allows for System Management by adding, deleting, or
modifying the Systems Database. Easily construct a 3D
building image from scratch or by uploading CAD (.
dxf
) files.

Allows Engineers to design the wireless system and all the
network components needed for coverage (i.e. number of
splitters, antenna type, detailed location of the antennas,
routing of the cables). Can also modify and
/or
add building
construction materials used.

Allows Engineers to model and review signal propagation
estimates for specific RF systems based on building
construction materials and layouts.
