AIRCOM International, the leading independent network planning and optimisation solutions provider, today announces that T-Mobile USA will integrate its internationally proven ASSET network planning solution across its LTE network, launching next year. As a long-standing AIRCOM customer, T-Mobile USA will extend the capabilities of ASSET in GSM and UMTS network planning to span existing 4G and future LTE network deployments.
AIRCOM has delivered nationwide, multi-technology planning services to T-Mobile USA, across 2G, 3G and 4G technology for more than six years. T-Mobile USA currently has the largest multi-user ASSET deployment of any operator anywhere in the world.
AIRCOM’s ASSET tool currently forms T-Mobile USA’s database of record for all its cell sites nationwide. ASSET currently integrates a range of different systems, including its own backhaul network tool CONNECT, to predict network coverage requirements for the network operator, across the USA, on a daily basis. These extensive radio network planning capabilities will be extended to include T-Mobile’s future LTE network.
“Our decision to extend our working relationship with AIRCOM to cover our LTE network expansion shows our firm commitment to delivering the best possible network quality and performance to our customers,” says Mark McDiarmid, vice president of radio network engineering and development with T-Mobile USA. “The seamless integration of ASSET with our existing software and systems will ensure the benefits we enjoy across our GSM and UMTS networks can be easily applied to our LTE infrastructure.”
“As a long-term and highly valued AIRCOM customer, T-Mobile USA has enjoyed the significant benefits our ASSET solution delivers across multiple network technologies,” says Alwyn Welch, CEO, AIRCOM International. “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to extend these capabilities to T-Mobile’s LTE network and play a central role in delivering optimal mobile services to its customers across the USA.”
