Spectrum Refarming

Forte is a powerful 2G optimization tool delivering highly automated, measurement-based, spectrum refarming, and best-in-class GSM optimization.

As operators focus on their 3G, 4G and 5G networks, the 2G network still has an important role to play. By maximizing spectrum efficiency of the 2G network, excess spectrum can be refarmed and utilized for additional capacity on newer technologies.

Additionally, in many areas, the 2G network is still the primary voice and emergency calling network. A well optimized 2G network is therefore still a critical necessity for many subscribers.

Forte maximizes network quality, capacity and coverage through accurate network modeling based on advanced simulations and a measurement-based approach. Highly automated data collection, parsing, analysis, and implementation scripts improve operational efficiency.

Proposed frequency plans can be benchmarked against existing configurations in order to see potential performance improvements, or to model the performance degradation that could occur when spectrum is drastically reduced.

For over 5 years, Analysys Mason has consistently ranked TEOCO as one of the largest vendors of network planning and optimization software in their Service Design and Orchestration Systems: Worldwide Market Shares report.

Key Benefits
