Atoll Overview

Atoll 3.2

Atoll is a 64-bit multi-technology wireless network design and optimisation platform that supports
wireless operators throughout the network lifecycle, from initial design to densification and
optimisation.

Atoll 3.2 includes integrated single RAN – multiple RAT network design capabilities for both 3GPP
(GSM/UMTS/LTE) and 3GPP2 (CDMA/LTE) technology streams. It provides operators and vendors
with a powerful native 64-bit framework for designing and optimising current and future integrated
multi-technology networks. Atoll 3.2 supports the latest technology advances such as HetNets and
small cells.

Atoll’s integration and automation features help operators smoothly automate planning and
optimisation processes through flexible scripting and SOA-based mechanisms. Atoll supports a wide
range of implementation scenarios, from standalone to enterprise-wide server-based configurations.
With 6000 active licences installed with 300+ customers in 100 countries, Atoll has become
the industry standard for radio network planning and optimisation.

Atoll Highlights

Atoll uniquely combines architectural and functional features that provide operators with a powerful,
scalable and flexible framework for streamlining their network design and optimisation processes.

Native 64-bit Application
Atoll as well as all its components and modules are native 64-bit applications with no restrictions
on project size and memory usage. Atoll provides limitless possibilities and enhanced performance in demanding situations such as multi-technology Monte Carlo simulations as well as urban and network-wide predictions.
Atoll 64-bit architecture allows operators to cope with complex multi-technology networks, and to successfully deal with the dramatic increase in network density expected with the advent of HetNets and small cells.

High Performance GIS
Atoll incorporates a high-performance built-in geographic information system (GIS) exclusively designed for radio
network planning and optimisation. Atoll’s 64-bit GIS engine allows working with high-resolution and large-scale  geo data while delivering high performance in data manipulation and display.
Atoll supports web map services, online map servers (Google, Bing, etc.), and industry-standard formats including BIL, TIF, BMP, Vertical Mapper, ArcView, MapInfo, etc. Atoll smoothly interfaces with commonly used desktop GIS such as MapInfo and ArcView.

Multi-technology Network Modelling
Atoll is a comprehensive multi-technology radio planning and optimisation platform which includes unified multi-technology GSM/UMTS/LTE (3GPP) and CDMA/LTE (3GPP2) traffic models, Monte Carlo simulators, and ACP (Automatic Cell Planning) module. Atoll can model the traffic-related aspects of multi-technology networks and dynamically spread and offload traffic between multi-technology Hetnet layers including Wi-Fi and small cells.

In-built Automation and Customisation Capabilities
Atoll’s in-built task automation and integration capabilities enable data as well as service-level integration, allowing operators to automate and streamline network optimisation activities on the way to SON. Atoll’s data exchange and integration capabilities enable integration within service-oriented architectures (SOA) and enterprise service buses (ESB). Moreover, Atoll’s C++ software development kit (SDK) allows customisation and implementation of functional value-added modules for Atoll.
