Anite, the wireless network testing technology provider, and RF network planning solutions provider iBwave are combining their product sets to make it easier to undertake RF site surveys.
iBwave’s Mobile Planner and Mobile Note now feature even tighter integration with Anite’s Nemo IBC Meter, Nemo Handy and Nemo Walker Air. Building upon their existing collaboration, both sets of tools are fully compatible with each other to offer field professionals a unified and streamlined user experience.
“We are excited to strengthen our collaboration with iBwave,” said Kai Ojala, CTO and Vice President at Anite Network Testing, who continued: “With iBwave being very strong in the planning phase, our integration with their product suite brings tremendous advantages in the implementation of in-building wireless networks. Using iBwave and Anite Nemo solutions, our customers can truly streamline OPEX and accelerate DAS and small cell deployments.”
With the advent of HetNet technologies, in-building projects have become more complex to involve simultaneous planning for multiple technologies. Because of this trend, planning accuracy is now more critical, since the cost of inaccurate designs can be staggering.
The integration of iBwave Mobile and Anite Nemo makes it possible for operators and service providers to reduce their operational expenses (OPEX) and realize up to 60-70% time savings through planning based on accurate measurements.
“iBwave Mobile aims to eliminate time consuming tasks associated with site surveys and post-survey processing. With each new release and enhancement, we reduce the guesswork in RF data collection and network design,” said Benoit Fleury, VP of Product Line Management at iBwave.
He added: “We are excited to strengthen our collaboration with Anite by offering a tighter integration with the Nemo suite. This is a continuation of our strategy to offer the most complete solution for wireless in-building deployments from design and prediction to data collection and documentation.”
The seamless integration with third-party collection tools makes iBwave’s Mobile portfolio indispensable for site surveys, field-based designs and as-built-documentation - all in an iBwave compatible file which is the established standard worldwide.
