Indoor Wireless Network Planning

Indoor wireless planning can be defined as the process to plan and optimise wireless networks that use indoor antennas and transmitters to deliver and improve indoor coverage and capacity.


Indoor wireless planning aims at delivering a seamless wireless (4G, 5G, WiFi, IoT…) connectivity  to improve coverage and capacity in those challenging indoor areas.

Indoor/outdoor Wireless Network Challenges

In mobile networks, a large part of the data traffic comes from indoor mobile phone users, so hotspot coverage and capacity have a key impact on user experience, such as in commercial zones, large venues, metros, airports, campus, and enterprise buildings.

Increased traffic and user expectations have led mobile operators to use new technologies such as DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems) when deploying indoor wireless networks to deliver increased coverage and throughput inside buildings and venues.

 

In-building wireless planning can be defined as the process to plan wireless networks that use indoor antennas and transmitters to deliver indoor coverage and capacity.

 

Indoor/outdoor Propagation Modelling

Modelling interactions between outdoor sites and indoor antennas is necessary when planning 4G and 5G networks. Outdoor sites can generate interference inside buildings and modelling outdoor to indoor propagation and vice-versa is key to generate optimal in-building network plans and integration with the outdoor network. Advanced network and propagation modelling is needed as dominant propagation mechanism are different in outdoor and indoor configurations.
