Siradel and Infovista partner to accelerate planning and roll-out of 5G networks
Press release: Rennes, France – 07th July 2021
New collaboration offers ability to combine the leading-edge Infovista’s Planet solution for Radio Frequency planning and optimization and the market-leading Volcano propagation model from Siradel.
With 5G, operators and vendors face significant engineering challenges due to the additional technical complexity of their networks, such as deployment of new frequency bands (like the sub-6 GHz and millimeter wave bands), M-MIMO and much higher site density to cope with the various 5G quality and capacity objectives.
As a consequence, 5G wireless network planning requires the most relevant data and highly accurate radio modelling that guarantee radio network design quality indoor and outdoor from day 1 as well as the expected performance and customer experience.
Leveraging their respective expertise and recognized leadership, Siradel and Infovista collaborate to offer the ability to combine their solutions to accelerate 5G network rollouts, enabling high accuracy even in the highest 5G frequency bands.
Based on the Siradel’s 25 years’ experience in geodata production and radio engineering, Volcano propagation model can simulate any wireless network cellular technology, including 5G and millimeter wave.
With 30 years of innovations in RF planning, network modelling and optimization, Infovista’s Planet technology help make the best wireless design decisions to positively impact on network quality.
Now integrating automation and live data feeds at the very heart of its planning functions, Planet greatly simplifies the way networks can be planned. It thus reduces the operating costs related to planning and optimization, while improving the reliability of wireless network designs.
“We are excited about this new partnership as we strongly believe this will bring a real added value to the market”, said Sylvain Aubin, Infra Network Design Director at SIRADEL. “Leveraging its 3D ray tracing capabilities, Volcano provides unrivalled accuracy with the fastest computation time, required for large scale and automated network planning”. With this collaboration, Infovista and Siradel are ready to accompany wireless carriers on their journey towards 5G.
“The ability to combine Volcano and Planet offers operators an additional way to ensure their radio networks perform as intended” said Régis Lerbour, VP Product and R&D for Radio Engineering at Infovista. “In the context of 5G where the number of cells to plan significantly increases, Siradel and Infovista share the same willingness to accelerate deployment, improve network performance and lower costs.”
