ASSET allows multiple technologies to be simultaneously modeled in a single project.
It supports GSM, UMTS and LTE (both FDD and TDD) as well as GPRS/EDGE, AMPS, TDMA, TACS, PCS, PMR/TETRA/iDEN, HSDPA, HSUPA, HSPA+, CDMA2000, EV-DO, DVB-H, Fixed WiMAX and Mobile WiMAX.
ASSET also supports emerging IoT standards including NB-IoT, LTE-M and unlicensed LPWA technologies such as LoRa and Sigfox.
The ASSET database can be shared across multiple users and sites, enabling a constant view of the current network, without requiring manual synchronization.
Excellent security provides a true multi-user environment for large-scale corporate deployments and network sharing projects. Privileges may be specified to manage individual and group access at multiple levels within the tool.
GIS – MAP VIEW
At the heart of ASSET is a GIS designed specifically with the radio network planner in mind. It features a comprehensive set of display and layering functionality, including the ability to display Web Maps and to edit cell parameters directly from the GIS.
ASSET includes a number of empirical and deterministic propagation models, as well as the option to add 3rd party models from providers such as Siradel, Wavecall and AWE Communications. Models can be manually or automatically tuned, and their accuracy can be improved by using measurement data.
COVERAGE MAP GENERATION AND PRINTING
By combining ASSET and ARRAYWIZARD, you can schedule and produce nationwide coverage plots and statistical reports. These can then be published over the Web or printed.
Traffic modeling with ASSET allows you to forecast traffic and analyze capacity, and to model new services prior to implementation. Running ‘What-if?’ scenarios ensures the best design is deployed.
ASSET features the most powerful neighbor planner on the market. Neighbor relations between cells, including IRAT handovers, can be planned and analyzed. Neighbor relation parameter planning is also included.
Network measurements from multiple sources, such as drive tests, carrier wave measurements and mobile measurement reports, can be imported into ASSET to tune propagation models and enhance neighbor planning.
A modern approach to integration, based on SOA-compliant web services, provides ASSET with the ability to easily integrate into large-scale, multi-application environments.
