Canada and France (PRWEB) February 13, 2009
Forsk, an independent software company that provides radio planning and optimisation tools, announces today the collaboration with iBwave Solutions, the leader for in-building wireless network design software, to provide an interface that allows RF Engineers to import and integrate outdoor prediction data from Forsk's Atoll RF planning and optimisation software, into iBwave's RF-vu software, to help operators better design in-building wireless networks.
"We are pleased to partner with iBwave. This cooperation is in line with Forsk's strategy to deliver, through Atoll, an open multi-technology RF planning and optimisation platform that can support a complete range of application modules developed by Forsk and market-leading third party developers like iBwave," says Benoit Guy, VP Marketing & Sales of Forsk.
Forsk and iBwave customers will be able to visualise indoor systems in Atoll, and to incorporate outdoor prediction data into the indoor design process within RF-vu, thus supporting a combined outdoor and indoor design process.
"The increasing demand for state-of-the-art wireless indoor and outdoor network coverage from leading operators worldwide has been proliferating due to the surge in usage of smartphones and their high-speed data applications. To be able to plan and design both indoor and outdoor networks simultaneously is a step towards bridging the gap between two organizational silos that used to be managed by operators separately," says Mario Bouchard, President and CEO of iBwave Solutions.
This interface between Forsk's Atoll toolset and iBwave's RF-vu flagship software will offer an integrated network solution that will provide operators with the proper tools to deliver state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor wireless network services to their own customers.
Forsk is an independent software company, headquartered in Toulouse, France that provides radio network planning and optimisation tools to wireless operators and vendors. Atoll, Forsk's market-leading radio RF planning and optimisation tool, is in use with leading cellular operators and equipment suppliers world-wide. Forsk markets Atoll through its offices in France, USA and China and a world-wide network of distributors and partners. http://www.forsk.com
