With the onslaught of mobile data and new technologies like LTE and small cells, finding an ideal solution to comprehensively address network planning, performance management and optimization obstacles is a lofty task for communications service providers (CSPs) and mobile operators. But, for government agencies that must coordinate the objectives of numerous groups, the challenges are that much greater, and the stakes are that much higher.
For example, part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, FirstNet was tasked with standardizing the design process for its new, LTE-based national public safety network. By providing emergency responders with greater network coverage and capacity and higher-speed land mobile radio (LMR) communications, they are better equipped to save lives, solve crimes and keep communities safe.
Next week, at IWCE, we will be on hand to discuss how our wireless network planning technology has been deployed by FirstNet to help with this very task. With our RAN Collaboration Hub, InfoVista ensures safe, secure storage of project data and the planning of several technologies, like LMR and LTE, in a single project. In addition, because FirstNet relies on a multi-vendor environment, it saw our solution as providing critical collaboration capabilities. And, with the ability to optimize existing network elements and pre-plan for future roll-outs, FirstNet and other governments are guaranteed high network performance now, and down the line when new technologies emerge.
Also at the show, InfoVista Senior Software Engineer Darren Hart will be joined by other industry thought leaders to present LTE Case Studies on Thursday, March 27, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. PDT. Throughout the presentation, the group will discuss how InfoVista's RAN Collaboration Hub is being used in the deployment of a public safety interoperable communication system (Project PTC-220) for freight operations.
Will you be at IWCE next week? If so, feel free to stop by our stand (3100) or reach out via Twitter (@InfoVista) to set up a meeting!
