A global provider of 5G mmWave infrastructure products for the wireless edge, Pivotal Commware introduces two new modules to WaveScape ®, its innovative network modeling tool: Multi Dwelling Unit (MDU) FWA optimization and 3D visualization. These features all together enable high-density urban environments and lets carriers accelerate the network design at minimum cost.
WaveScape, created in-house since legacy tools cannot model at a high-enough resolution, and do not consider many of the essential differences between fixed wireless access (FWA) networks, and mobility networks, particularly for MDUs. WaveScape is enhanced by MDU Optimizer™, using AI to completely automate the placement of Pivot 5G network repeaters serving MDUs, used by a third of American households.
3D visualization is used by the optimizer to qualify FWA service for MDUs where one part of the structure will likely be covered, and others won’t be. . Mobile network operators (MNOs) can sell FWA to the right customers by identifying these differences and determine where equipment needs to go to achieve higher coverage levels, and which units have coverage, and which do not.
While making coverage qualification determinations, legacy tools typically only consider the signal strength to the building, and do not take into consideration all the factors that are important to the actual performance of FWA networks, such as the angle of incidence of the signal onto the building, the building materials, glass, and window type, or whether the windows are recessed from the face of the building.
