Magna Systems has signed a technology and reseller partnership agreement with Ranplan Wireless, a wireless technology company that has developed software for outdoor/indoor wireless network design, optimisation and automation.
Magna Systems Group Sales and Marketing Manager Paul Maroni said, “Ranplan is at the forefront of research and development in radio propagation, small cells and DAS networks, automatic RAN optimisation and the deployment of complex hetnets for in-building cellular networks, public safety and the Internet of Things (IoT)*.
“With this partnership Ranplan supplement and complement our range of radio planning tools and as most mobile phone usage is indoors, this enables us to now easily provide modelling that keeps pace with the complexities presented by 5G and the IoT.”
Ranplan leverages advanced 3D in-building modelling as well as 3D RF propagation and simulation in developing its portfolio. Its expertise and commitment to continuous development provides mobile operators and system integrators with cutting-edge tools to cost-effectively design, plan, optimise and operate multiple networks for today and tomorrow.
Maroni added, “Magna deals with every major telco in Australia and more across the Asia Pacific region. Whether it be a stadium, shopping centre or apartment complex, telco operators need to plan and make sure they have uninterrupted coverage throughout the structure to ensure quality of service for their customers.
“As we have been for many years, Magna is the one-stop-shop for all telco planning, measurement, optimisation, benchmarking and user experience tools.”
*DAS stands for distributed antenna system, and RAN for radio access network. A hetnet is a heterogeneous network, one whose components are very different from each other.
