LG U+ selects iBwave tool for first 5G stadium design
LG U+ and iBwave have been working closely together for the last year. With the support of iBwave’s 5G Design Enterprise software design tool, LG U+ have dramatically improved their design quality, all while reducing the cost and time to complete in-building wireless designs.
iBwave Design Enterprise is a powerful user-friendly software tool to design large and complex in‑building wireless networks. It boasts multi-technology, multi‑building support, advanced 3D modeling, coverage and advanced capacity simulations for increased network densification, automatic link budget calculations, error checking and a customizable database of over 29,000 parts and growing.
iBwave uses unique innovations such as 3D modeling, coverage, interference and throughput engines, as well as visualization of key performance indicators, to provide an accurate design for venues of all sizes. These features were essential to enhance the stadium with 5G. Technologies supported include Active/Passive DAS, Wi-Fi, small cells, public safety, LTE, LTE Advanced, LTE LAA, CBRS, IoT, and LoRa.
“When it was time to choose the software to help design a 5G network, iBwave was the obvious choice. Their vast experience in the industry, combined with their innovative software made them the perfect partner for LG U+,” said Daehyun Kwon, a specialist from LG U+ NW Development Group.
“As the global leader in cutting edge telecommunications services, LG U+ is perfectly positioned to lead the way to a 5G connected future. This is the next evolution in wireless technology,” said iBwave CEO Claude Echahamian.
In 2019, the partnership between iBwave and LG U+ will continue to strengthen, with plans to introduce iBwave’s Unity and Mobile Note design software to their indoor wireless design ecosystem.
“With 5G on the horizon, it’s important that we begin designing the infrastructure today so that it will be ready to meet tomorrow’s growing demand for high speed wireless access,” Mr. Kwon added.
