Accelerate and automate in-building network design time

Significantly reduce time and cost when designing indoor networks with Ranplan’s powerful automation tools. Trust your designs with our live database featuring multiple vendor-approved components that are rigorously validated and represent all wireless technologies.


  • Create 3D building models in just minutes by importing IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) files from various BIM (Building Information Modelling) authoring software, such as Revit, Edificius, ArchiCAD, EdiLus®, SketchUp®, VectorWorks®, Rhino®, Tekla® and more.
  • Seamlessly import 3D IFC building models from the Metaroom® LiDAR scanning app
  • Automatically reconstruct 3D building models from imported 2D Auto CAD floorplans
  • The Intelligent Floorplan Recognition (IFR) tool assists in modelling your environments from images or drawings when official floorplans are unavailable.
  • Our Network System Design tools empower users to flexibly build and configure networks for a wide range of venues and environments
  • The Intelligent Network Optimization tools enhance the automation of network designs and improve network performance
  • Access our large multi-vendor component database to populate your network with verified devices
  • Support for Active and Passive DAS, small cells, Wi-Fi technologies

Ranplan In-Building frequently asked questions

Can’t find the answer you are looking for below? Visit our full library of FAQs for more information or get in touch if you still need help.

Can I create custom report templates within Ranplan Products and if so how?

Yes, users can create their own custom layouts for reports within Ranplan Products. For detailed information on how to do this please refer to the user documentation for the relevant software package.

Where/how can I access the download package for the latest versions of Ranplan?

The latest versions of Ranplan Professional, DAS and Tablet can be downloaded from the ‘Downloads’ section of your account on the GLS end user portal. Please note that you will only have access to the install packages for which you have license keys.

How do I run model tuning/calibration even when measurement data is present in the project?

The access point, small cell or signal source must be given the same unique identifier as is present in the measurement logs for example, the unique identifier in Wi-Fi measurement data is the MAC address. The unique identifier allows the tool to correlate data contained within the measurement data logs with the location of the access point, small cell or signal source placed in the Ranplan project file.

Can I create my own components in the device database?

Yes, users can create their own custom devices in the device library. To do this a copy of an existing device can be made and modified. Please note that devices may not have the same name as the original and the OEM flag will be removed from copied devices. Furthermore, the device database editor provides a level of version control to assist with the maintenance of custom databases.

How can I access the tunnel modelling tool?

The tunnel modelling tool can be access on the ‘Home’ tab of the main ribbon under the ‘Building’ view.
