PCTEL & Ranplan Collaborate to Streamline Indoor Wireless Network Planning

PCTEL has announced the integration of Ranplan Professional solution with its SeeHawk Touch data collection software to streamline in-building wireless network design, planning, and optimization. Ranplan Wireless is an innovative wireless technology company that has developed the world’s only solution that can plan, design and optimize in-building and outdoor wireless networks in coordination.

The next generation of wireless networks will incorporate new technologies such as 5G alongside existing cellular, Wi-Fi, and public safety networks. Together, SeeHawk Touch and Ranplan Professional enable onsite engineers to measure, model, and visualize the complex interactions between these technologies.

SeeHawk Touch and Ranplan Professional allow engineers to make immediate assessments and adjustments. SeeHawk Touch software collects and analyzes real-world RF data from PCTEL’s industry-leading scanning receivers. Ranplan Professional then incorporates this data into advanced 3D visualizations and network propagation modeling. An upgrade to SeeHawk Touch will be released allowing Touch and Ranplan Professional to work together seamlessly. The combined system will support network design and planning for a wide range of wireless technologies, including 3G, 4G LTE, LTE-A, CBRS, LAA, NB-IoT, Wi-Fi, P25, and 5G New Radio.

SeeHawk Touch and PCTEL scanning receiver data complement Ranplan’s ability to model the complex interactions between indoor and outdoor wireless environments. Ranplan’s innovative modeling incorporates key components of the HetNet, including hybrid indoor/outdoor, macro, small cell, DAS, Wi-Fi, and backhaul.
