LTE Deployment: making the most of LTE features to deliver capacity where it’s needed most

LTE Deployment: making the most of LTE features to deliver capacity where it’s needed most

View the Q&A

 

LTE introduces many new parameters to the radio network design problem.  They come on top of the existing challenge of designing to maximise coverage with the fewest sites while minimising interference.  For example, MIMO is not an LTE panacea.  It certainly adds value but it needs to be used in the right places.  Similarly, vendor specific adaptive coding and modulation can deliver great benefits but optimal value is not extracted by meeting one dimensional coverage and interference goals.

To deliver on all of the promises of LTE a radio engineer need to take into account all of LTE’s features.  The best results can only be achieved with a combination of good data, good planning and excellent optimisation algorithms.  The network will then deliver capacity where it delivers the most value to customers.

    Thank you for all your questions this morning, this Q&A is now closed. You can email your questions directly to Thomas by sending them to Thomas.Neubauer@symena.com.

    Is there a mobile smart phone based application for capesso – “capesso on the move” so to speak

    • thomas neubauer
      thomas neubauer September 27, 2012 at 10:39 am

      Capesso is tightly integrated with planning and other optimization solutions. It gets the data in an automated manner from there. Hence, it is not suitable for a mobile app.

    Hi, is it possible to get a copy of the charts presented? Thanks.

      I guess so, … to be provided by telecoms.com

    Hi, this capesso tool, is widely used in the business and how can operators acquire it??

    • thomas neubauer
      thomas neubauer September 27, 2012 at 10:35 am

      As mentioned, we have tier-1 customers all over the globe. We can send you a list of customer references to see what our customers think about it.
      How to get it. Please contact us at request@symena.com and we make sure that our local representative contacts you for further details, trials, etc.

    Hi, did ot start? I cannot see anything!

  • Jim Dev September 27, 2012 at 9:41 am

    How can I test Capesso™?

    • thomas neubauer
      thomas neubauer September 27, 2012 at 10:31 am

      Just tell us at request@symena.com and we will get in contact with you for details.

    Do you check data consistency and in particular the quality of the measurement data as input?

    • thomas neubauer
      thomas neubauer September 27, 2012 at 10:45 am

      Yes, data consistency is a critical point. This applies for all data sources Capesso uses. Particularly with any measured data it is important not to “blindly trust” the data, but to check the quality. Capesso also cross-correlates the different sources, e.g. measurements with the configuration data bases, etc.

    How do you handle multi-band antennas in reality?

    • thomas neubauer
      thomas neubauer September 27, 2012 at 10:41 am

      there are different types of multi-band antennas typically deployed. Some use the same electrical tilt for all bands, some use different electrical tilts per band. Capesso handles them accordingly and automatically synchronizes the physical parameters, such as “mechanical” tilt – which is obviously the same for all bands, and provides full flexibility where the degrees of freedom are given

  • Jim Dev September 27, 2012 at 9:40 am

    How many radio technologies can you handle simultaneously?

    • thomas neubauer
      thomas neubauer September 27, 2012 at 10:32 am

      Actually there are no limitations in the number of radio technologies. Customers are jointly doing 2G, 3G, LTE joint projects with different input data, etc.
