Ranplan launches iBuildNet 3.0 at Mobile World Congress

New features reduce time and cost for rolling out combined cellular and WiFi networks across indoor and outdoor metropolitan environments

February 15, 2016 -- At next week’s Mobile World Congress, Ranplan will be showcasing the latest release of iBuildNet, its all-in-one, heterogeneous network planning, optimisation and simulation solution for small cell, DAS and WiFi networks, across both indoor and outdoor environments. iBuildNet 3.0 adds a range of new features including enhanced WiFi planning capabilities, Smart CAD functions and support for LTE-A key standards such as MU-MIMO and CoMP.

Release 3.0 allows users to perform cross-system design and simulation with accurate modelling of coverage, traffic steering and handover between LTE and WiFi systems. With mobile operators increasingly embracing WiFi to deliver greater coverage and capacity for the enterprise, this means indoor and outdoor WiFi and cellular networks can be planned in co-ordination, reducing the time and cost of deployment and ensuring support for future heterogeneous technologies and standards.

“Previously, LTE and WiFi networks were designed in isolation, but with iBuildNet 3.0, network planners can fully-integrate multiple cellular technologies together with WiFi to create truly heterogeneous networks for in-building and metropolitan environments,” said Graham Peel, CEO at Ranplan.

The new Smart CAD features include automatic extraction of walls, doors, windows and floors from complex CAD files to create accurate building models. This new capability alone can reduce the time it takes to model the building environment by over 50%, while enhancements to Ranplan’s extensive material database enables the design of networks operating in spectrum up to 6GHz.

“Network planning has always been to improve coverage and/or increase capacity at each cell site, regardless of what users are doing or would like to do, where they are and what devices they use,” adds Graham Peel . “With iBuildNet's advanced Wireless Network Simulator, engineers can plan a user centric model rather than a cell centric model, taking into consideration network technology, handset and service to maximize the user experience.”

Ranplan will be launching iBuildNet 3.0 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week, in Hall 7 on Stand 7C12. iBuildNet will also be featured on the Ascom stand following the announcement last month of a global partnership with Ascom Network Testing to market Ranplan iBuildNet technology as part of its TEMS portfolio.
