CFN Services is announcing a program to support wireless infrastructure from core to tower. Wireless Jumpstart ® was developed to help wireless providers with all aspects of the wireless infrastructure, from business cases to planning, design through implementation; for new markets, to upgrade existing markets and for new wireless providers. Wireless Jumpstart® can help expedite the time from planning to implementation. CFN Wireless Jumpstart® is an ecosystem of the leading firms to support all areas of the infrastructure such as RF design, site acquisition; planning the backhaul; making decisions regarding RAN and DAS if required, deciding between microwave, satellite and fiber. This program provides professional services, tools and financing options to allow wireless providers the ability to focus on the core business of providing wireless broadband everywhere.
The right partners and tools can make the difference. Working with the best tools provides the ability to expedite some of the backend work that is required for successful network implementations. Utilizing CFN FiberSource ®. the industry's best and most comprehensive telecom infrastructure knowledge-base tool, allows a firm to quickly identify and design optimized network configurations. Utilizing CFN Jumpstart® ecosystem partner Keima provides access to the Overture tool. Overture helps automate wireless network design. It has powerful analysis, process automation, simple installation, and monthly leasing; which allows for a better, faster and less expensive network planning process. Overture has already been used to design thousands of wireless 3G and 4G cell sites nationwide. Wireless carriers can benefit through Jumpstart® by utilizing Keima’s Overture in conjunction with CFN’s Fibersource® to essentially anchor network designs based on the best backhaul choices, a “first” and a tremendous benefit to the industry.
