iBwave Interfaces Anite’s Nemo Suite for Data Collection into iBwave Design
One tool used for in-building wireless design, prediction and data collection
Montreal, Canada, June 8th, 2007 – iBwave, the industry-leading provider of in-building wireless planning and design software, is pleased to announce its partnership with Anite, a global leader in testing technology for the wireless industry.
The growing demand for high speed data rates and deployment of 3G networks has forced operators to invest heavily in in-building coverage where data-hungry applications are used. In order to create the optimal design for complex technologies, it is imperative to conduct site surveys throughout the entire design process. The partnership bridges Anite’s mobile-based indoor data collection tools Nemo Handy and Nemo Outdoor with iBwave’s flagship product iBwave Design and the newly released RF-Propagation module. With a seamless interface between the products, engineers, integrators and installers have the ability to now tie field site data with propagation and planning/design information for a complete picture before and after network installation.
iBwave’s President, Mario Bouchard states, “It’s all about accuracy and efficiency when delivering high-quality wireless service. Network design is where it begins and with each new release and enhancement, we reduce the guesswork in design. We are excited to work with Anite and their Nemo product line. This relationship is a continuation of our strategy to offer the most complete solution for wireless in-building deployment from design and prediction to documentation and now data collection. When these elements are then connected to the largest indoor components database available, users now have a very powerful tool set in their hands.”
Anite Finland’s Managing Director Jukka Honkila adds, “The need for indoor measurement has and will increase remarkably with the development of 3G networks. Nemo Handy has already shown its versatility and superiority in the market. We welcome the opportunity to develop the Nemo Handy concept even further in cooperation with the industry-leading iBwave as the cooperation will complete our offering for the indoor measurement environment. We believe that this agreement will be especially beneficial for the customers of both companies and that it will help them maximize their service quality and revenue stream.”
iBwave Design will read and display information coming directly from any Nemo platform in its next release schedule (Fall 2007).
Site survey data will be used to set antenna locations based on indoor/outdoor existing signals and interferences and will also validate coverage after installation.
Collected data will be connected with iBwave’s RF-Propagation module to fine-tune prediction models.
Users can optimize and measure the quality of wireless voice and data networks to maximize revenue streams and increase performance.
A global market leader in the development and delivery of wireless telecoms technology, Anite has over 15 years’ experience in providing leading-edge test solutions to equipment manufacturers, operators and test laboratories for early handset development, integration, conformance and interoperability test through to network measurement solutions. www.anite.com
