The Atoll-based indoor wireless network planning solution
The Atoll In-Building module is our new in-building wireless network design and optimisation solution. It includes specialised tools and features that enable comprehensive indoor wireless network design and analysis.
Atoll thus provides operators with a complete and integrated indoor/outdoor RAN planning framework as required for effective 5G network deployment.
Enabling better in-building wireless network design
5G makes RAN planning more complex and requires modelling in-building wireless networks of complex venues such as stadiums, underground tunnels, corporate campuses, industrial sites and commercial centres. Detailed modelling of network equipment such as DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems), connectivity and cables, amplifiers etc. is a must for proper coverage/throughput calculations, project documentation and generation of bills of materials.
Combined modelling of indoor and outdoor wireless network provides operator with more accurate network plans and allows for increased productivity and accelerated network deployments.
Atoll In-Building uniquely allows mobile network operators to plan and optimise indoor and outdoor networks simultaneously within Atoll, allowing a direct assessment of indoor/outdoor combined coverage, throughput and interference and delivering more accurate network plans.
Atoll In-Building Features

Extending RF planning and optimisation software capabilities
Atoll In-Building extends the industry-leading radio access network planning and optimisation capabilities of Atoll to meet the centimetric precision and high level of detail required for indoor network design. Atoll, our industry-leading RAN planning and optimisation software, allows indoor and outdoor network planning and optimisation using a common data structure, instinctive user interface, and reliable calculation algorithms.
Atoll supports large-scale, country-wide deployments as well as deep-diving into indoor scenarios comprising multiple buildings, floors, and radio access technologies.
