5G networks offer increased capacity, lower latency and faster speeds. They can operate in the higher frequency bands between 28GHz and 60GHz in a band known as the millimetre wave (mmWave) spectrum. 5G networks feature dense, distributed networks of base stations or small cells. 5G networks offer ultra-reliable, low latency capacity, which supports a growing number of user applications. Our flagship radio planning tool, HTZ enables MNOs to plan, model and optimise their radio networks.
Small cells in 5G networks increase network data capacity and can reduce rollout costs by eliminating expensive rooftop installations. 5G networks feature built-in flexibility to support coexistence with other standards like LTE & Wi-Fi and to enable spectrum sharing.
Because 5G operates in high-frequency bands, accurate cartographic data is needed to consider the terrain, clutter heights and building which may impact the service, network latency and capacity. ATDI offers access to a comprehensive library of map data, available for download for customers with a valid maintenance contract. These high-resolution maps support signal loss modelling which is characterised by the geo-spatial environment and identify buildings and clutter that impact mmWave propagation.
5G networks offer three distinct use cases for industry, each offering its own distinct benefits to users, communities and industry as a whole.
This tutorial gives a high-level overview of the features and functions available in HTZ Communications & HTZ Warfare.
