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
Wi-Fi offloading.

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.
