Some question the requirement for RF planning software of 5G networks given the wealth of information collected and obtained from existing networks. However, 5G employs such dramatically new technologies like massive MIMO and flexible numerology, as well as the use of very high frequencies that the need for RF planning is once again great. However, not all planning software are up to the challenge. Meet Planet 7 – the only 5G-ready RF planning solution.
Preparing for a 5G Future
RF Planning of Millimeter Wave Frequencies for RAN Evolution
Assess different frequency options based on equipment availability and propagation characteristics.
Plan the 5G radio overlay and provide accurate perspective on CAPEX investment.
This technology is key to realize 5G’s potential, but where and how should it be used in the network?
