Getting the most out of the network, meeting subscriber


demands and developing new revenue growth plans are key
drivers in the uptake of LTE as a new technology. There has
never been a more critical time to look at network evolution.
Data growth, which is expected to reach over 1.1 Exabytes
per month by 2017*, is being driven by the proliferation of
broadband-capable mobile devices, and the sustained and
successful challenge to the wired broadband world by 3G and
HSPA. Long Term Evolution (LTE) is a complete step change,
moving the mobile world from legacy voice-centric networks
to full IP connectivity. The migration to LTE presents
considerable challenges to operators across their radio,
transmission and core networks. AIRCOM is able address
these challenges through a suite of products and services
to ensure a successful migration to LTE for operators.

LTE promises to increase


network capacity, improve
QoS and significantly
enhance data rates. Finding
and maintaining the most
efficient network design
whilst reducing the total cost
of ownership, brings new
design and optimisation
challenges. AIRCOM has a
product portfolio to help
operators address these
challenges.
RADIO NETWORK
PLANNING
ASSETTM, the number one
Radio Network Planning
product, now includes
detailed modelling of
LTE network elements,
parameters and traffic,
allowing you to maximise
all that LTE has to offer.

BACKHAUL PLANNING
With the capability of
LTE to deliver large data
volumes, backhaul will
become a more significant
network cost component.
Revenue growth is however
not proportional to data
traffic growth and therefore
operators need to scale their
networks while keeping
costs under control
efficient backhaul planning
is the only way to manage
this challenge.
CONNECTTM enables you to:
Target bottlenecks with
the ability to plan point-topoint and point-tomultipoint network links
for your LTE network.

ASSET LTETM enables


you to:
Determine the lowest site
count and optimal site
configuration by planning
and optimising your LTE
network configuration,
including traffic planning,
network analysis and
network dimensioning.
Ensure excellent data
throughput rates and
seamless mobility with
LTE coverage and capacity
analysis, detailed PCI code
planning and multitechnology handover
planning.
Determine where and
when to deploy LTE, and
where to opt for another
solution such as HSPA+.
Perform financial analysis
on your LTE radio network,

reducing overall
deployment costs and
maximising ROI.
Understand the interaction
between your new LTE and
legacy networks especially
at the LTE network
borders, which is key for
inter-network mobility
and continued quality of
service for customers.
With ASSET LTE you can
simultaneously analyse
LTE network performance
with other technologies
(GSM/UMTS/CDMA).
Quickly validate vendor
produced plans to ensure
they meet your planning
and quality criteria.

Determine what
technology to adopt at
various points within your
network by modelling
TDM, IP and Hybrid
transport modes to
support LTE technology
evolution as well as
2G and 3G traffic.
Handle multiple
technology networks in
a single tool. Map 2G,
3G and LTE traffic into
transmission links through
the Unified Capacity and
Route planner and identify
bottlenecks quickly.
Plan efficient use of
Adaptive modulation and
PS aggregation to support
S1/X2 traffic.

Reduce OPEX in the


backhaul network by
automatically identifying
the most cost-effective
transmission network
intelligent frequency,
capacity and route
planning.
Seamlessly integrate with
ASSET to enable carried
traffic analysis and unified
backhaul route planning,
providing the ultimate
integrated RF/TX platform.

PERFORMANCE
MANAGEMENT
After committing significant
investment into building an
LTE network, ensuring it is
running as efficiently as
possible for maximum return
on investment is an obvious
decision. AIRCOMs
performance management
tool OPTIMA can help you
achieve this.
AIRCOM OPTIMATM
enables you to:
Gain visibility to your LTE
network by loading
network performance data
from eUTRAN and Evolved
Packet Core network
elements.

Communicate performance
of your LTE network to
relevant audiences with
AIRCOMs LTE reporting
packs or build your own
custom reports. Schedule
and distribute reports via
email or publish them to
a report portal.
Ensure network problems
are isolated and rectified
quickly by analysing and
troubleshooting your LTE
network performance with
OPTIMAs Inspector
module.
Proactively highlight
network problems to the
relevant people by raising
alarms on the performance
of your LTE network and
forwarding them to your
existing fault management
system.

Load performance data


from your other mobile,
wireline, IP and backhaul
network technologies for
a consolidated view of
your entire network in
a single tool.
COMING SOON
AIRCOM continues to expand
LTE support within its tool
portfolio. Coming soon

tRaInIng

AIRCOMs LTE training


portfolio contains technically
focussed courses for
engineers as well as courses
for managers providing an
overview of the technology
and more focus on the
commercial aspects of
deploying an LTE network.
Courses addressing the
migration path from existing
technologies are offered, as
are courses covering LTE

LTE roll-out could cost tier


one operators up to $8BN
USD in CAPEX over the first
3-5 years. Adding LTE could
add another 30% to todays
OPEX. Taking the right steps
at the right time can reduce
CAPEX by 30% and
incremental OPEX to as
little as 9-12%. LTE Fast
