Efficient planning of the 5G NR networks faces significant new challenges.
Learn how we address those challenges with our revolutionary planning tools.
Although 5G technology has enormous potential across almost all sectors and industries, its full-scale implementation is held back by significant technical and operational challenges. One of those challenges is very complex and time-consuming network planning. Our solution aims to solve this issue.
Over the last few years, the 5G standard has become the go-to solution for many industries, while 4G/LTE networks are becoming insufficient and cable networks more expensive and cumbersome to deploy in many cases. Besides mobile operators, 5G networks are necessary for developing Smart City solutions, private industrial networks, and AEC sector companies.
5G network planning comes with a set of entirely different challenges to any previous standard. Due to the specific characteristics of the mmWaves used by 5G NR, planning tools need to analyze much more data from various sources. We are developing a planning tool to precisely simulate mmWave propagation and create cost-efficient and reliable 5G networks using Digital Twin technology.
The most significant difference, and the reason for most of the difficulties associated with successful 5G NR implementation, is the use of mmWaves, which provide much wider bandwidth and better latency but have a significantly shorter range and are much more prone to interference. Unlike previous standards, 5G mmWaves can be heavily influenced by factors like vegetation, weather, vehicle traffic, and any other physical objects, structures, or obstacles. To be efficient, 5G networks also have to account for dynamic factors such as seasonal cycles or anomalies, traffic peaks, public events, and etc.
The performance that the 5G standard provides, combined with potentially lower prices, makes it a highly in-demand solution for industrial use, such as factories and other production facilities, logistic centers, mines, shipyards, oil rigs, and etc. There are even more potential interferences in those industrial implementations, so planning tools need to factor in aspects like irregular network topology, the use of heavy machinery, dustiness, or electromagnetic interference caused by welding. Our planning solution can effectively handle all such scenarios.
Our 5G planning tool is based on Digital Twin technology. We create a live-updated, virtual model of a given area, which includes all necessary aspects that may influence radio-propagation paths, such as:
And much more relevant data to make networks sufficient and cost-effective for any particular area.
Our 5G planning solution is designed to quickly plan functional 5G networks, but also to do so as economically as possible. Here’s how our tool achieves that:
Up to 90% faster 5G NR planning thanks to the super-efficient cloud-based computing engine.
Up to 10x lower costs thanks to the online SaaS subscription model. No need to maintain your own computing power or to buy a permanent license.
Simulation of full radio propagation space in high-resolution thanks to the innovative voxel engine. Our solution takes into account vegetation, vehicle traffic, rainfall, and other interferences.
Minimal need to use specialized, costly, engineering knowledge thanks to the simplification of the planning process, supported by AI.
Full scalability of the tool. Multiple simultaneous simulations depending on the project needs.
