HTZ COMMUNICATIONS FOR SPECTRUM ENGINEERING AND RADIO NETWORK PLANNING
HTZ communications INTRODUCTION
HTZ communications PERFORMANCE
Automatic Coverage Calculations
The resource-intensive process of producing repetitive network studies in HTZ communications is a thing of the past. These processes can now be fully automated, freeing up valuable resources to perform other tasks and activities. The automation feature includes a GIS data import from generic GIS formats such as GeoTiff. This is of interest for operations where the environment is constantly changing, such as those in an open mine where the terrain profile may change on a daily basis.
The automation engine automatically calculates coverage of individual sites, and then produces composite coverage, and includes identity of best servers, study overlaps, calculates C/N+I map in dB. With 4G and 5G networks, it also automatically calculates SINR and throughput maps.
For Microwave transmission networks, the automatic microwave path calculation engine sends an email notification if the minimum clearance requirement has not been met.
All the study results are exported in KMZ and TIF/TFW files and are delivered to a display system in the operations centre.
Built-in GIS engine
Converting GIS data for ATDI tools to use in RF engineering projects is simple.
HTZ communications features a GIS engine which converts the GIS data from formats such as .TIFF, ASCII Grid, and .SHP files into ATDI formats, allowing the easy and efficient use of the data.
One outstanding feature of the GIS engine is the ability to create a high resolution building layer using DTM heights. This is based on the correlation between DSM and DTM and a direct result of extracting building samples from DSM layer, dynamic beamforming and massive MIMO.
