According to InfoVista, the microwave engineering network planning tool enables Vertel to meet customers’ demands for complex, point-to-point microwave designs more quickly, freeing up resources in the network team to target new revenue opportunities without requiring additional resources.

Inter-visibility, bulk LOS analysis and pre-integration with other wireless access network planning tools, including future support of Vertel’s land mobile radio (LMR) and Wi-Fi network design teams are among the selection criteria. 

Our network design team is under constant pressure to quickly and accurately create and plan high-quality network designs for our customers. With Mentum Ellipse, we are able to cost and time effectively deliver backhaul services, even when there is a very high degree of complexity. And, by improving our efficiency, we are also maximizing ROI for our fixed network customers. It has become an essential tool within our team’s day-to-day operations.”

"Communication service providers today face growing pressure to plan, operate, optimize and monetize larger and more complex backhaul, fixed and microwave networks,” said Bernard Breton, SVP, Americas & APAC sales and chief marketing officer, InfoVista. “Mentum Ellipse not only helps carriers like Vertel efficiently and cost-effectively manages the performance of their next-generation networks, but can also help them minimize overall network CAPEX and ensure reliable network performance.”
