Industries

The number of smart phone users has increased in India and around the world. This steep rise has led to development of new avenues in the telecommunication industry. Wireless telecommunication service providers need GIS for telecommunication Services in order to make informed decisions.

In today’s competitive market, the wireless telecommunication industry is being driven by the need to provide better service coverage while reducing infrastructure costs. The solution lies in determining the optimum location of towers using GIS for telecommunication.

AABSyS’s GIS for telecommunication services provide clutter data that has been developed for the radio frequency (RF) propagation to help engineers refine their signal loss prediction models according to the characteristics of the underlying terrain and ground cover.

GIS for telecommunication requires mapping land cover data which is critical to wireless network design because the surface cover affects propagation of the digital wireless signal. GIS for telecommunication’s clutter data is classified as the man-made and natural features that may impair radio frequency propagation by reflection, diffraction, absorption, or scattering of the transmission waves. Engineers can determine the optimum location for towers by integrating Clutter data with elevation data (DEM), and physical attribute data, and with propagation models with help of RF software programs.

AABSyS supplies a wide range of high quality GIS for telecommunication’s spatial datasets with up to 2.5m and 5m resolution.
