InfoVista, a provider of IP and RF planning, assurance and optimization software solutions and services, asserted that the newly released Mentum (News - Alert) Planet 5.6 is capable of optimizing mobile operators’ small cell strategies, which in turn relieves the capacity crunch on their macrocell networks.
Mentum Planet 5.6 also delivers the first ever LTE (News - Alert)-Advanced support for Release 10 & 11 and improved 3D coverage modeling for intelligent wireless access network. Metropolitans usually experience a high volume of mobile data traffic congestion and one can overcome these effects by utilizing the new release to build high-quality LTE-Advanced and small cell networks.
The robust, easy-to-use software was built to address the complex requirements of wireless broadband technologies for operators, equipment vendors, and consulting firms involved in the planning, operation, and optimization of wireless networks. It lets mobile operators take advantage of the latest enhancements in both software technologies and computing technologies, like multi-core processing architecture and 64-bit computing, so that larger and more complex networks can be addressed.
Operators also have the provision to accurately pinpoint additional opportunities to improve cell-edge spectral efficiency and hence realize the full capacity benefit of small cells.
Bernard Breton, chief marketing and strategy officer at InfoVista commented, “Recent surveys have confirmed that mobile operators recognize the importance of small cells, yet they don’t realize what it takes to harness the technology’s full potential and the significant cost savings that can be achieved as a result of smart small cell planning. Mobile operators require state-of-the-art wireless access network planning and optimization capabilities, like those Mentum Planet offers, to define and execute an effective small cell strategy that will put them in a prime position to attain a 3x better ROI for their deployments.”
The company added that Mentum Planet 5.6 supports all major wireless standards such as LTE-Advanced, LTE, WiMAX (News - Alert), EV-DO, HSPA+ and Wi-Fi, and addresses all stages of the Heterogeneous Network (HetNet) lifecycle.
