Ranplan enhances WiFi and cellular planning for indoor and outdoor networks

Mobile operators integrate WiFi to deliver increased capacity

14 January 2016: With mobile operators embracing WiFi to deliver coverage and capacity for the enterprise market, both indoor and outdoor WiFi and cellular networks need to be planned in co-ordination. That’s why Ranplan’s ground-breaking iBuildNet Professional tool now allows users to perform cross-system design and simulation with accurate modelling of coverage, traffic steering and handover between LTE and WiFi systems.

“WiFi is now an integral part of any overall solution to provide seamless connectivity and capacity for in-building and metropolitan environments,” said Graham Peel, CEO at Ranplan. “Previously, LTE and WiFi networks were designed in isolation, but now network planners can fully-integrate multiple cellular technologies together with WiFi to create truly heterogeneous networks. This allows network operators to optimise existing network assets and efficiently use previously under-utilised capacity to deliver an improved customer quality of experience.

Ranplan will be showcasing the latest version of iBuildNet Professional at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month.
