Whether it’s the lack of detail or inability to scale, engineers need a more efficient, accurate way to plan in order to stay competitive. We invited Roger Skidmore, CEO, EDX, Andrew Baffes, Vice President and Co-Founder, EGS Technologies and Ryan Hamilton, Geodata Product Manager, DigitalGlobe to share their experiences and discuss how wireless network planning and the tools that support it are evolving to keep up with advanced network technology and designs. From propagation simulation software to the geodata behind it all, we asked the experts what’s working and where there might be room for improvement to help networks keep up with growing capacity needs and urban sprawl. How can we make the future of network planning more efficient?
