NETWORK DESIGN

Reduce network design time by 50%

Don’t waste time building 3D models! With Ranplan Professional, RF Designers can autogenerate buildings into 3D from auto CAD files. This is ideal when dealing with multiple and large complex 3D building models as they can be easily imported and reconstructed by semi-automatically extracting objects such as walls and windows, eliminating manual intervention. This increases the users’ efficiency and reduces the cost in designing the network.

  • Smart CAD Extract tool enables users to faithfully reconstruct imported 2D floorplans into 3D models
  • Network System Design allows users to flexibly model and design networks for a wide range of venues and environments
  • Intelligent Network Design increases automation of network designs
  • Seamless integration of GIS and 3D building model
  • Large multi-vendor component database

NETWORK SIMULATIONS

Accurately predict and optimise coverage and traffic capacity

With Ranplan Professional, users can deliver ultra-reliable 4G LTE and 5G networks that will cope with increased indoor data consumption in dense urban environments. Use Ranplan’s true 3D ray-tracing engine and enhanced virtualisation feature to produce realistic visual simulations of the planned indoor and outdoor wireless network coverage. Users can test the wireless network to see if it will be able to cope with the expected level of traffic on multiple devices by using the capacity simulator that will also examine the user experience and network performance.

  • True 3D ray-tracing propagation engine and enhanced virtualisation
  • 3D Beamforming, massive MIMO and 3D MIMO
  • Millimetre Wave capability
  • Automatic radio network optimisation modules (IFO/IAO/ICO/ITO/INP/PCI Planning/RSI Planning)
  • Full traffic capacity simulation and analysis using the Wireless Network Simulation tool

FAQs

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.
