iBwave and TELUS Mobility Partner For In-Building Wireless Network Design
iBwave Design software is selected by leading Canadian wireless provider
Montreal, Canada, March 15, 2004 – iBwave is pleased to announce that TELUS Mobility, a leading Canadian wireless provider, has chosen its iBwave Design software for the design of in-building networks.
TELUS Mobility's radio frequency engineers across Canada will use iBwave Design for network design, making use of the software's easy to use interface and database of network components that visually creates and configures networks before installation. With iBwave Design, RF engineers no longer have to piece together a mix of word processors, spreadsheets and computer-aided design software to design in-building networks.
"We chose iBwave Design because it automates the in-building design process. It gives our RF engineers an illustrated view of the in-building design with linked components, equipment lists and automated calculations of power levels and gains and losses within the network," said Raymond Saoumah, TELUS Mobility's Director of Network Performance. "iBwave Design has the ability to simultaneously design and configure both our PCS and Mike networks on the same RF cabling system, and provides future support for Wi-Fi designs."
The increasing number of mobile users and the push towards data services is driving the demand for in-building networks. Carriers must rapidly design complex networks while minimizing costs and meeting coverage and capacity needs. iBwave Design brings efficiency to this process, giving engineers and technicians the flexibility to build "what if" design scenarios to meet specific client needs.
"TELUS Mobility's choice of iBwave Design validates the software as a powerful business solution for in-building network design. During the client testing phase of the product, iBwave Design quickly proved to be helpful by detecting irregularities with on-going design projects," says iBwave President Mike Cegelski.
