TEOCO, the leading provider of assurance, analytics and optimization solutions to communications service providers (CSPs), Wednesday announced a new version of its ASSET radio network planning software - ASSET 9.0 - that features enhanced LTE capabilities, including modelling of VoLTE networks. The new version supports better voice and data services and enables Operators to better plan their next-generation offerings.
The new version comes with Velox, a new small cell planning module, that incorporates backhaul and radio planning into operators’ macro network planning models to improve the small cell planning capabilities. Another new module, ASSET Geo, brings geo-located traffic and performance maps directly to ASSET users. ASSET 9.0 also includes enhanced integration, both with other TEOCO products and third party solutions.
TEOCO said that the new features along with ASSET’s support for all radio technologies, including WiFi, makes ASSET 9.0 a complete solution for planning all parts of the radio network, and one which fully connects to the wider OSS/BSS eco-system. The company added that the ASSET 9.0 which is now a fully native 64-bit application can now manage larger data sets and support the planning of larger networks than was previously possible - including networks that contain over 750,000 cells and which feature a range of radio technologies, multiple carriers, and complex antenna systems.
