5G network planning

Next generation networks

5G NR (New Radio) is revolutionising the way we communicate, collaborate and exchange data. Each day, more capabilities are being introduced to support enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC) and massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC).

Our suite of tools can help you to design and optimise your 5G NR infrastructure before deployment to ensure you deliver reliable network performance and excellent quality of experience for end users.

First 5G network planning design tool

5G NR is far more complex than previous generations of mobile networks and needs to work together with current 4G LTE and WiFi radio access technologies (RATs). Ranplan Wireless is pioneering the way cellular networks are designed, through extensive research and development. This is how we were able to bring the first 5G network planning and design tool to our customers.

Network Performance Analysis

5G NR KPIs can be analysed using the built-in radio propagation engine as well as the semi-dynamic Monte Carlo simulator in Ranplan Professional. The analysis of these KPIs will give radio network planners realistic insights of how 5G NR networks will perform in indoor, outdoor and joint indoor-outdoor scenarios and in coordination with multi-RAT networks.
