Radioplanning

Frequency sharing

When frequency sharing is used by communication operators, the tasks of automatic frequency allocation and generation of neighbor lists by Handover are easily solved in ONEPLAN RFP software. Frequency sharing is the use of TCH frequency channels together by several operators. As a result of frequency allocation, operators receive a frequency plan with common TCH frequency channels and with separate BCCH frequency channels, as well as neighborhood lists. In the frequency allocation process network performance can also be improved by reducing coverage loss and service quality due to interference, and optimizing the number of frequency channels for the BCCH and TCH.

ONEPLAN RFP 2017.3

The WEB Map Service (WMS: Yandex, Google, 2GIS, OSM) in version 2017.3 of the ONEPLAN RPLS-DB RFP software has been implemented. The service allows using these resources as a bottom layer for thematic maps while preserving all the functionality available when working with a vector map.

The new geoconverter allows the use of SXF maps (exchange format for GIS Panorama) to generate MapInfo maps for visualization and RLF matrices to take into account terrain and local objects when modeling the propagation of radio waves in ONEPLAN software.

ONEPLAN RPLS-XML 2017.2

In the version 2017.2 of the ONEPLAN RPLS-XML mobile and fixed communication planning software new functionality has been added:
– expanding list of available web resources: Google-maps, OSM, 2GIS
– the possibilities for calibration of radio propagation models with averaging of calculated values ​​in neighboring cells or searching for the best (nearest to the measured) calculated value in neighboring cells

In addition, improvements have been made in the methodology for calculating the radio relay links in part of:

  • account of terrain types, types of underlying surface
  • use of combined (spatial + frequency) diversity
  • analysis of the closed profiles
  • analysis of extended (more than 70 km) profiles
  • calculation of losses on obstacles in the range 100 MHz – 2 GHz

Updates are available on the technical support site for registered users. To get access to the technical support site or to clarify update conditions, please send a request to step@rpls.ru or fill out the feedback form with the current version of the software in the text field.

ONEPLAN-2017

The 14th annual ONEPLAN-2017 seminar organized by InfoTel together with the Branch “Information and telecommunication technologies” of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences was held June 28. The theme of the seminar: Communication, access and broadcasting networks. Topical issues of technological development.

The new capabilities of ONEPLAN software for planning multi-band, multi-standard, multiprotocol networks, including Internet of things, were demonstrated at the seminar. The new module was also introduced to calculate the structural reliability of communication networks.
