Rivada Networks, a leading designer, integrator and operator of wireless, interoperable communications networks, has selected InfoVista’s Planet software to design a large-scale public safety LTE network, the FirstNet project.
Rivada relies on the trusted accuracy and automated design capabilities of Planet to support efforts related to FirstNet’s next-generation, public safety network for first responders.
Planet is a RF network planning and optimization software used by mobile operators and equipment vendors for RF planning, radio network and mobile network optimization, and mobile network performance management. As a cloud-based, centrally managed platform, Planet is best-suited to quickly deliver on Rivada’s needs for a fully configured and managed IT environment that can support nationwide preliminary planning, said Infovista.
Planet, in conjunction with specialized InfoVista Geodata (mapping data), is able to accurately model network coverage, capacity and select optimal site counts and configurations to support the network design process. By accessing the Planet network-planning and optimization solution in a managed cloud environment, Rivada is able to perform this large-scale design in support of their proposal to build and manage the FirstNet project.
