To differentiate, retain high-value customers or generate new revenue streams, the need to deploy 5G networks much faster than any other wireless generation while keeping costs under control is in every operator’s mind. This starts with very efficient planning processes that require minimal human intervention and self-adapt to the myriad design scenarios.
With Planet, our innovative, market-leading RF planning software and optimization solution, we give you the most powerful and accurate tools so you can meet these challenges to plan, design and optimize 3G, 4G, 5G and beyond easily and accurately.
Now incorporating a world-first RF planning model powered by AI, and automated access to crowdsourcing information, Planet is changing the way engineers will plan their wireless networks tomorrow. By relying on real-world data and revolutionary machine learning advances to accurately predict wireless coverage, validate plans against live data and remove manual complexities, radio engineering activities are becoming even simpler and faster.
Along with our Geodata product and TEMS network testing, Planet also offers a seamless integration with iBwave in-building design solutions. No other partner can take you through the entire RF planning, testing and optimization lifecycle – from indoor to outdoor.
The results are faster deployment, higher team productivity and better control of your radio infrastructure costs.
Do much more than planning - Only with Planet
Features & use cases
Leading capabilities for 5G planning
5G employs radically new technologies like massive MIMO and flexible numerology, as well as new bands like sub-6 and mmWave. Planet has been developed to support 5G NR use cases like EMB, FWA or massive IoT, and complying with the latest 3GPP standards. With true 3D planning capabilities, Planet helps engineers to make the right design and optimization decisions. By simplifying the design and evolution of complex 4G/5G networks, Planet helps you to transition to 5G faster and at a lower cost.
Planet excels at accurate predictive RF modeling so that mobile operators can reliably simulate mobile performance, and benefit from effective CAPEX budgeting and optimal ROI in their real-world site deployments. Planet offers a range of accurate and unique propagation models, already validated for 5G, such as our latest Artificial Intelligence Model (AIM) or Universal Model, as well as proven coverage and capacity simulations from 2G to 5G.
Native integration of live data
Planet allows you to combine live measurements including crowdsourced data, social media or mobile measurements (call traces) with predictions, to connect your plans with reality and ultimately improve the accuracy of planning and optimization. With seamless connectivity to Vista Experience, our geo-intelligence and RAN optimization platform and direct access to crowdsourced data, engineers have an unprecedented level of geolocated insights into mobile subscribers’ behavior and coverage experience through real-world data leveraged directly into their planning solution.
Automation and deployment flexibility
Through its powerful workflow automation, Planet and its Server edition can automate the generation of virtually any wireless planning map or statistics for pre-defined scenarios that are usually produced manually. Such capability ensures extremely fast deliverables, high consistency in results and the ability to share any coverage-related information externally. In addition, multi-user support and flexible deployment options make it easy to set up Planet in your own IT environment or in the cloud, minimizing infrastructure cost.
