The wireless market has seen lately the roll-out of new networks for the Internet of Things, thanks to Cellular IoT technologies. Deploying new generation of networks brings new challenges and requires new tools and processes.
S_IoT, as a module of Smart City™ Explorer™ series the first radio planning tool for LPWA networks, offers a large set of innovative features to cope with the challenges of LPWA network roll-out. S_IoT, as a cloud-enabled tool, gives access to an unrivaled worldwide portfolio of 2D & 3D geo data.
S_IoT relies on Volcano, the leading 3D-ray tracing propagation model, achieving accurate wireless link prediction of connected things.
Sylvain AUBIN, Wireless Product Manager at SIRADEL, said:
“Thanks to its advanced metrics and automatic features, such as geolocation estimation (e.g. for LoRa™ networks) and automatic network design capabilities, S_IoT reduces the time for LPWA network planning and optimization (NP&O), while providing top-level confidence in simulations.”
Over the past months, S_IoT technology allowed many LPWA actors, such as equipment vendors, telecom carriers and system integrators to efficiently design and deploy LPWA networks in any type of environments (from rural to dense urban), within the same tool.
