Highlights & Innovations

One integrated 5G Solution

One integrated 5G Solution

5G introduces disruptive technologies such as multi-beams active antennas, massive-MIMO that can dynamically steer radio energy where users are concentrated.

Infovista’s integrated 5G solution uniquely allows you to plan, design, test and optimize your 5G networks. Our Planet, TEMS and VistaNEO solutions provide unprecedented levels of accuracy and performance with the inclusion of a unique set of 3D, geolocation and automation capabilities, in every step of your network rollout.

3D Planning & Optimization

3D Planning & Optimization

80% of mobile broadband traffic is produced by subscribers located in buildings at various floors, especially in urban areas with the most profitable subscribers. A such, 5G needs 3D Planning & Optimization. Planet provides unique, native 3D planning capabilities:

  • 3D predictions
  • 3D analysis
  • Support for 3D antennas
  • 3D propagation models
  • Call trace based geo-location
  • 3D traffic maps
  • 3D Monte Carlo simulations
  • 3D ACP

Our high resolution, machine-learning based 3D Geodata (Skylines) can support these 3D functions.

RF Fingerprinting Geolocation

RF Fingerprinting Geolocation

Our RF planning and optimization offer highly accurate call geolocation capabilities that allow MNOs to understand the mobile traffic distribution on their networks and get subscriber-focused insights for efficient planning and optimization.
Planet and VistaNEO location intelligence rely on our advanced 3D RF fingerprinting algorithm applied on live measurements. Leveraging accurate call geolocation, MNOs gain holistic insights into network performance, subscriber experience and live traffic heatmaps throughout the network across various vendor areas.

Propagation Model Signatures

Propagation Model Signatures

MNOs often face the challenge to assign a correct propagation model to base station in order to ensure accurate coverage predictions over all environments where networks are deployed. This requires engineers to launch expensive, time consuming measurement campaigns that can lead to incorrect model assignments.
Planet’s innovative model signature automatically assigns the most appropriate propagation model available to ensure the most accurate coverage prediction. This drastically reduces the number of measurements – up to 50% – and accelerates planning activities along with a higher level of confidence in prediction accuracy.
