Wireless operators and their vendors have many choices to consider before determining the best IoT technology for their network strategy. The ability to simulate an operational network, and dimension it in a manner that allows for accurate forecasts, provides operators and vendors building their business case for IoT with a strategic advantage. Advanced wireless planning solutions like Planet, initially used in the cellular world and extended for use with these unique technologies, enable operators and the vendors that support them to confidently chart their IoT strategy.
InfoVista has a strong commitment to ensuring that our network performance orchestration solutions are performing at their best for you. Customers who take advantage of our training, consulting and support services experience faster return on investment and more successful implementations by working together with our experts.
With the launch of Planet for IoT, InfoVista provides its innovative RF planning platform to a waiting community of network operators and their vendors. It includes:
New IoT capabilities. Support for IoT technologies SIGFOX and LoRa is delivered through an optional module. Network analyses (best server, signal strength, SIGFOX diversity levels, Uplink LoRa, best available modulation based on spreading factors) are all available.
MapInfo geographic information system. Operators planning their network and related demand forecasts are trying to solve an RF geospatial problem. Planet is the only software to include a leading geographic information system — MapInfo Professional™ — native to the application.
An open platform. Planet offers multiple means to integrate 3rd-party solutions or key systems through application programming interfaces (APIs).
Propagation models. CRC-Predict – a 2D model ideally suited for broadcast technologies outside of urban areas – is only available within the InfoVista software. The Planet 3D model, in conjunction with the Metro Design Package, is also available for accurately simulating urban environments.
Geodata. InfoVista develops its own geodata in conjunction with key partners to deliver turnkey planning products to its end users. Users of Planet cloud capabilities, including vendors and systems integrators, can lease 2D and 3D geodata for as long as they are using the software.
Flexible deployment options. Planet has many deployment options including public and private cloud implementations that let customers add new user licenses and privileges in real time. Traditional desktop, client-server and enterprise models continue to be supported.
Operators planning their network and related demand forecasting are attempting to solve an RF geospatial problem. MapInfo lets IoT engineers have access to layer statistics, population coverage and related RF coverage statistics in formats that can be viewed by any GIS user in the organization. By supporting the two main LPWA types, SIGFOX and LoRa, operators and their supporting ecosystem members can evaluate the best fit for their technology requirements.
InfoVista offers Planet IoT in conjunction with leading propagation models such as CRC-Predict, Planet 3D Model and Universal Model. These accurate models, when used in conjunction with InfoVista’s accurate 2D and 3D data, provide an RF simulation that is close to real-world conditions. Engineers can streamline their site selection and even optimize key parameters such as tilt & azimuth through use of the Planet Automatic Cell Planner (ACP).
Planet offers multiple methods to integrate 3rd-party solutions or key systems through application programming interfaces (APIs). IoT vendors and/or operators may integrate their Planet software with performance management systems, provisioning systems, configuration management systems and more.
