• 5G will enable improved approaches to outdoor and indoor coverage, plus new opportunities such as IoT, private networks and broadband but multiple opportunities and multiple strategies exist
  • High end-user expectations for ubiquitous, high-quality, high-throughput mobile services
  • Rollout costs versus revenue and coverage requirements: profits are no longer guaranteed

Our offer

  • Network planning and business modelling to make your network cost-effective
  • Research that accurately forecasts demand and suggests appropriate business and planning models
  • Tested, proven and evolving planning tools and strategies

As 5G comes to market, careful network planning is essential.

Add business modelling and networks can be made cost-effective. Predictive models and network planning tools will need to step up; they need to ensure networks are built to adapt and that they meet mandated coverage requirements – while guaranteeing a return on investment.

Much of the 5G-related excitement is about the services it can enable. Network planning is an area that might receive less of a focus than it should – but not from Real Wireless. This is one of our specialities. Our research, development and application work in recent years has included – to name only a few – coverage, network performance, interference assessment, antenna location, interference between indoor and outdoor systems, throughput variation within buildings, localised demand, and network dimensioning. If these are not correctly managed, services will either not be optimised or not be profitable.

What we offer

  • Network planning: We have a justified reputation for high-quality network planning, based on dedicated tools that we are continuing to evolve and adapt. At a time when factors like densification, regulation, demand and competition are threatening to impose a choice of cost or quality on operators, we can prove that compromise is not necessary.
  • Insight: Making the most of enhanced mobile broadband, massive internet of things, optimised services, network slicing and other potential sources of revenue will require not just network planning but accurate market projections. For us, the two go hand in hand.
  • Independence: Helping to build and cost networks will be a critical part of delivering on the promise of 5G-led services and many vendors will be vying for your attention. We will help you choose. We offer an independent and unbiased service that is tailored to your needs and budget.
