Comet helps with network planning

New product for efficiently running what-if scenarios will be demoed virtually via a series of live webinars Feb. 26-27 and available globally in late March 2020.

Infovista has introduced a new product in its automation platform, which allows network operators to efficiently run large scale what-if scenarios for strategic network planning. Codenamed “Comet” the product is designed for strategic planning teams of mobile network operators and network vendors. It allows them to evaluate multiple scenarios for the deployment of new technologies and frequency bands, leading to OPEX savings and optimized CAPEX.

Infovista’s new automation offering enables iterative scenario testing, which typically requires manual interventions, to be run faster and with more reliable outcomes, providing unmatched performance and scalability. Specific capabilities include:

  • Optimize CAPEX by selecting the best combination of sites within a fixed budget
  • Significantly reduce OPEX to evaluate scenarios, e.g. new 5G rollout, infrastructure sharing between CSPs, rationalization of frequency bands between 2G, 3G and LTE
  • Optimize CAPEX by selecting the correct number of sites to fulfill coverage requirements
  • Evaluate different network design and rollout strategies and associated coverage and capacity within minutes

“With the increasingly complex responsibilities placed on network operators, true automation is priceless in contributing to efficiency, cost savings, and optimized performance,” said Infovista CEO José Duarte. “Our automation offerings, which are already being used by a tier 1 operator in the US, help networks run more smoothly, preserve resources and in turn, maximize customer revenues.”
