NEXTMap Link Planning

DEM line of sight calculation, Telecommunication line of sight graph

Wireless network design and the installation of antennas requires understanding of the best possible location and height of communication towers, so that no obstructions, such as mountains, trees or buildings, interrupt the path between the antennas and the signal. The NEXTMap Link Planning web app, powered by Intermap, allows you to quickly and efficiently identify such obstructions. Instead of labor-intensive site surveys, using RF link planning allows telecom companies and network planners to save costs by planning and checking the line of sight quickly and easily, without even leaving the office.

Product Description 

Wireless network design and the installation of antennas requires understanding of the best possible location and height, so that no obstructions, such as mountains, trees or buildings, interrupt the path between the antennas and the signal. The service visualizes the Fresnel zone and determines if any interference exists due to landforms between two planned locations of antennas or telecoms towers. NEXTMap Link Planning is especially beneficial for any user in the telecommunications industry like mobile, TV, broadband, radio and emergency service providers using terrain profiles for the line of sight and microwave link design when planning for new towers and upgrading existing networks coverage.

With the increase in frequency and bandwidth in RF radio links, accurate elevation data sets with high spatial detail, global coverage, and excellent vertical accuracy are required. Intermap’s data provides a solid foundation for link planning as it is seamless, uniform, and void free. The elevation dataset is created using Intermap’s strict quality management process and provides the user with spatially rich features such as buildings, flattened roads, and natural terrain. It is available globally and is ready for use in your network planning.

Using the web app NEXTMap Link Planning, customers can leverage the best available NEXTMap datasets to assess their point-to-point microwave and millimeter wave wireless products. The online access takes the data management out of your hands and allows your focus to be on finding the right hardware and location for your customers.
