AI comes to wireless comms

22 December 2023

2023 is the year of artificial intelligence (AI). With generative AI coming into its own among consumer, enterprise and government spheres, AI is inching its way into every industry on the planet – and mobile is not immune.

One way that wireless performance is optimised is by providing accurate channel state information (CSI), which is used in real-time throughout a wireless system to adapt transmissions as best as possible to current channel conditions with the goal of maintaining the best performance. This is a crucial component to achieving reliable communications with high data rates and multi-antenna systems.

Sitetracker adds GIS for towerco design

22 December 2023

Sitetracker has launched new capabilities to its solution to help network operators, engineering, and construction companies accelerate the rollout of fibre broadband by layering construction plans with geographic information systems (GIS) data.

The new solution, Sitetracker GIS Link, connects geospatial data from web GIS systems such as Esri’s ArcGIS within Sitetracker’s deployment operations suite. GIS Link will also support new functionality within Sitetracker that will provide network operators enhanced visibility into deployments by rolling up key metrics such as homes passed by market and servicing area. These new capabilities will allow GIS data to be shared more efficiently, driving improved collaboration between internal and external parties, and enabling broadband to reach rural and underserved communities faster.
