(5G Radio Planning)
ASSET 5G delivers all the radio planning capabilities you need to design the best 5G network possible.
Although we talk about ASSET 5G, ASSET is really one radio planning tool for the simultaneous planning of wireless networks across GSM, UMTS, LTE, 5G and all other supported technologies. You can learn more about ASSET’s general capabilities here.
For over 20 years, we have delivered the best network planning tools for every major mobile technology. We understand what it takes. ASSET 5G has been designed to meet your needs over the next decade as 5G grows and matures. Coping with the inevitable uncertainties and evolving to support new 5G technologies as they are developed.
We understand you value your existing investments in tools and business processes. Leveraging them is important to maintain efficient operations. This is why ASSET 5G features strong integration capabilities, ensuring it can be seamlessly integrated into your organization.
Deliver on the benefits of 5G
ASSET 5G is here to assist you at every stage of your 5G journey from strategic planning, through scenario modeling, network design and ensuring your 5G network works seamlessly with your other network technologies.
Everything you need to plan state-of-the-art 5G networks
As new technologies such as 5G are adopted these need to be deployed on top of existing networks in the most cost-effective manner possible. This requires careful radio network planning to ensure technology layers work together as a seamless network. Along with existing 2G, 3G and 4G support, ASSET is now a fully capable 5G radio planning tool. 5G NR modeling with advanced propagation models, complex antenna array and full multi-technology capacity simulation are all supported.
5G coverage analysis
The move to millimeter wave frequencies in 5G requires a new approach to coverage modeling. ASSET 5G uses advanced propagation models that account for multi-path propagation and reflections. High resolution 3D building vector data support ensures accurate coverage modeling of 5G frequencies. Beamforming antennas are also supported with multi-array support for adaptive and switched-beam arrays. This enables modeling of complex arrays such as MU-MIMO and SU-MIMO configurations.
5G traffic modeling
ASSET 5G covers the full gamut of 5G traffic modeling capabilities from 5G NR gNodeB definition to code assignment and mobility planning. Standards-defined NR frequency bands, frame structures, numerology and carrier definitions are all supported too. Analysis capabilities include simulator arrays, cell level outputs and inter-technology interference analysis. Finally 5G automatic cell planning (ACP) and automatic site placement (ASP) functionality helps operators design their 5G networks in record time.
A flexible and efficient approach to 5G planning
ASSET’s multiple-technology project view ensures you can plan 2G/3G/4G and 5G networks concurrently in a single tool. A multi-user architecture ensures multiple engineers can work on the network at the same time with changes seamlessly synchronized. Support for multi-operator networks, LTE-5G spectrum sharing use cases and V-RAN / C-RAN architectures ensure ASSET can support you whatever your technology path.
