PARIS & ASHBURN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- October 31, 2018 -- Infovista, the leader in modern network performance, today announced the latest version of TEMS Investigation. This new version is designed to provide Mobile Network Operators, Infrastructure vendors and Regulators with the ability to clear 5G spectrum, accurately measure the 5G NR network coverage, and provide input for 5G NR propagation model tuning.
TEMS Network Testing software can now be used together with commercial 5G NR Scanner Receivers. Infovista has been testing this solution in the field, in a number of 5G NR network trials with tier 1 operators and with several global infrastructure suppliers. The equipment has been used together with Infovista Planet, to accurately tune 5G NR propagation models (both Sub 6Ghz and mmWave)
With initial support of PCTel and plans for agnostic scanner support, customers will be able to choose between different scanners types and models to support both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) 5G NR network testing. The software can either run on a laptop or on a PC clustered solution. Both solutions can be controlled centrally by Infovista’s orchestration and real time analytics tool, TEMS Director. TEMS Director includes Network Analytics based on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, which can reduce the operating costs of drive-testing by up to 60%.
Both TEMS Investigation and TEMS Paragon are designed to use commercial 5G NR devices as they become available. This will allow early adopters of 5G NR to gain insight into the performance of different smartphones and their interaction with real 5G NR networks. Today, Infovista is the only vendor with 5G planning, geodata and Network Testing capability.
“With nearly 300 mobile operators announcing 5G rollout plans or trials in the near future, the need for accurate network planning and testing will be pivotal to the future success of 5G services,” said Adrian Jakobsson, SVP RAN portfolio. “By providing the tools to develop and test accurate 5G propagation models, we plan to help our customers deliver the highest quality and most efficient 5G network deployments in their respective markets.”
