IN-BUILDING PLANNING AND IMPLEMENTATION 

Our in-building solutions will enable mobile operators and enterprises to improve voice and data coverage in high-traffic areas such as corporate buildings, shopping malls, multi-tenant buildings, manufacturing facilities and airports. Our In-Building service includes RF (radio frequency) coverage assessment, design and optimization, program management, pre & post deployment services which include maintenance, on-site technical support and network monitoring. Our services organization helps mobile operators design & optimizes in-building networks with optimal coverage and capacity. IWS has a team of experts that can help service providers and enterprises select an In-building solution with the right capacity and RF optimization requirements to help ensure In-Building and macro network interoperability.

» Preparation of BoQ   In-building RF survey

» Cable route survey & Walk test 
» Link Budget 
» Post Installation walk test 
» Recommendation on BSS parameters


Radio Network Optimization Services

IWS RF Optimization Services known to deliver for its quality, whether a small scale project or an End-to-End solution, our Network Optimization Service guarantees a thorough optimization of the network and an improvement of network performance within the customer defined constraints. We determine areas for improvement and specify the required input data - measurements, network configuration data and other data about the technology used in the network, and then we analyze the data and determine the changes needed to optimize the network performance.

IWS optimization services includes a split of the radio network optimization process in five sub process

» Radio Network Audit
» Radio Network Verification
» Radio network Benchmarking
» Radio Network Field Optimization (Drive Testing)
» Radio Network KPI Optimization0



Radio Network Audit

IWS provides network audit services to its clients, which are telecom service providers or telecom vendors to have a complete knowledge about the implemented systems in the field. This could be site audit, where checks could be made on the antenna height, antenna type, azimuths, tilt, transmit frequency etc. which broadly fall under the hardware network audit. Under the software / Radio quality network Audit, we take tasks like drive test to identify black spots in coverage, quality. Frequency plan analysis where we check the carrier to interference ratio and the critical areas/regions with high interference resulting in bad voice quality, Cell/BSC/RNC parameter analysis where we check in-correct parameters values if affects any degradation of KPIs



Radio Network Verification

The deliverables of Radio Network Verification services include:

» Radio network parameters consistency check report
» Verification report for each 2G/3G radio site
» Service verification report
» Weekly problem tracking report



Radio Network Benchmarking

The methodology of radio network benchmarking services includes:

» Definition benchmarking periodicity
» Definition of reference areas for benchmarking by region
» Definition of reference drive test condition
» Drive test data collection for all technologies (2G/3G/HSPA+)
» Drive test data processing and comparative analysis of all operators and with data for the previous benchmark



Radio Network Field Optimization

The deliverables of Radio Network Verification services include:

» Cluster/Route drive test report and recommendation
» Radio network modification report for each level of modification implementation
» Weekly customer complain analysis report



Radio Network KPI Optimization

IWS offers high level analysis of radio network parameters and structures to provide better KPI. KPI improvement is provided to Customers in a short period with IWS KPI Optimization methodology for each BSC / Cluster
The methodology of radio network KPI optimization services includes:

» BSC/Cluster based analysis of available raw network counter data
» Cell/BSC based parameters or Cell configuration analysis and changes
» Radio Network capacity utilization analysis and re-dimensioning
» Weekly/monthly network KPI trend report (Drop Rate, CSSR, HO SR, IRAT-SR, EDGE/HSDPA throughput)
» Ongoing monitoring of network performance
» Periodically Radio Network Field Optimization
