As new technologies, such as LTE are adopted, these need to be deployed on top of existing networks. Utilizing as much of the existing network infrastructure by co-siting new cells is the only cost-effective way to deploy a new technology. This requires careful planning, especially if the technology layers are to be complimentary to each other.
So what is Asset ?
ASSET is a radio network planning tool providing coverage, capacity, cell parameter and neighbor planning. It is a multi-technology tool allowing the planning of GSM, UMTS, LTE, Wi-Fi, small cells and other technologies in a single project. It can be customized through a range of productivity packs to add additional functionality.
Main advantages of Aircom Asset:
GSM, UMTS, LTE, Wi-Fi, CDMA, WiMAX, etc…
GIS – MAP VIEW
GIS designed for radio network planner, featuring a comprehensive set of display and layering functionality
Empirical and deterministic propagation models + option to add 3rd party ones. Models can be tuned and their accuracy can be improved by using measurement data.
COVERAGE MAP GENERATION AND PRINTING
Schedule and produce nationwide coverage plots and statistical reports (Web or print).
Traffic forecasting and capacity analysis + modelling of new services prior to implementation.
Most powerful neighbor planner on the market. Neighbor relations between cells including IRAT handovers can be planned and analyzed. Neighbor relation parameter planning is also included.
Network measurements from multiple sources such as drive tests, carrier wave measurements and mobile measurement reports can be imported into ASSET.
Delivering a true multi-user environment for large scale corporate deployments.
The ASSET database can be shared across multiple users and multiple sites, with a current view of the network always available, without manual synchronization.
A modern approach for integration based on SOA compliant web services endows ASSET with the ability to easily integrate into large scale multi-application environments.
ASSET allows seamless and reliable integration to other TEOCO solutions for service assurance, cost management and network optimization. This sharing of data provides significant improvements in planning accuracy, business efficiency and ultimately network performance.
