Reduce network design time by 50%

Don’t waste time building 3D models manually! With Ranplan Professional, your RF Designers can effortlessly generate 3D building models from IFC files created in BIM software and Metaroom® App or Auto CAD files. This is particularly beneficial when dealing with multiple and large complex 3D building models, as it enables the easy import and reconstruction of objects such as walls, staircases and windows, eliminating the need for manual intervention. This significantly enhances the Designer’s efficiency and reduces the cost of network design.


  • 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.
  • Automatically reconstruct 3D building models from imported 2D Auto CAD floorplans
  • Seamlessly import 3D IFC building models from the Metaroom® LiDAR scanning app
  • The Intelligent Floorplan Recognition (IFR) tool assists in modelling your environments from images or drawings when official floorplans are unavailable.
  • Import 3D Mesh files to accurately and efficiently model complex structures such as curved rooftops, tunnels, and train carriages.
  • 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
  • Seamless integration of Geographical Information from GIS aids in modelling both the indoor and outdoor environments within the same design project
  • Access our large multi-vendor component database to populate your network with verified devices

Precision in Coverage and Capacity Optimization

With Ranplan Professional, your RF Designers can confidently design ultra-reliable 4G LTE and 5G networks that will cope with the increased indoor data consumption of dense urban environments. Leverage Ranplan’s true 3D ray-tracing engine and enhanced visualisation tools to produce realistic simulations of the planned indoor and outdoor wireless network coverage. Test the wireless network’s readiness to handle the expected data traffic from numerous devices using the capacity simulator, which also assesses the user experience and network performance. 


  • True 3D ray-tracing propagation engine and advanced visualisation
  • Harness the power of 3D Beamforming, massive MIMO and 3D MIMO technologies in your network design
  • Millimetre Wave planning capability
  • Simulate network delay and reliability against defined Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) with the Ultra-Reliable, Low Latency Communication (URLLC) feature
  • Simulate network redundancy scenarios by deactivating individual or multiple devices and cables
  • Automatic radio network optimization modules (IFO, ACO/ICO/IAO, ATO/ITO, INP/PCI Planning/RSI Planning)
  • Conduct full traffic capacity simulations and analysis with the Wireless Network Simulation tool

Ranplan Professional 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 accurate is the default propagation model used in Ranplan?

Under general circumstances the 3D ray-tracing model is accurate to within 6dB RMS error of the measured scenario and this has been independently verified.

How does ‘CAD Import’ in Ranplan differ from the current functionality offered by other suppliers?

The Smart Extract tool within Ranplan takes a much more visual approach to identifying walls, doors, windows, columns and inclined planes with no need to interact with the many layers in the CAD file.

What type of algorithm is used in the optimization modules and what does that mean for me as a user?

The optimization modules (ICO, IAO and IFO) all use heuristic algorithms to determine the results they provide. This means that the optimization modules will attempt to provide the best outcome based upon the restrictions or parameters provided by you, the user.
