NEXTApp Provides Powerful Online Wireless Planning Tools – NEXTApp Is Powered by NEXTMap® Elevation Data with Unmatched Global Resolution and Acuity; Over 75 Countries Already Covered with High-Resolution Data
DENVER, June 26, 2019 – Intermap Technologies® announced today the release of NEXTApp, a set of online analytical applications specifically for wireless network planning. NEXTApp is now available as part of Intermap’s Telecom Solution Suite of global data and analytics. Intermap has contracts with two major telecom carriers to use NEXTApp for wireless infrastructure planning and microwave link analysis starting in July 2019. NEXTApp includes RF coverage analysis and microwave link planning tools over a high-resolution data layer.
Intermap has been providing wireless planning tools and rich datasets for the telecom industry since 2008. NEXTApp is part of Intermap’s new Telecom Solution Suite, which includes access to both the analytic applications as well as up-to-date high-resolution NEXTMap data in a user-friendly interface. NEXTMap is Intermap’s global 3-dimensional dataset, the largest of its kind in the world, and includes Digital Surface Model, Digital Terrain Model and Clutter Data. With the launch of the NEXTApp platform into Intermap’s Telecom Solution Suite, Intermap plans to be the first to combine multiple analytic tools and access to global data into a single, easy-to-use, web-based application.
Access to high-acuity data is critical for RF modelling and line-of-sight applications such as 5G connections, since mm-wave frequencies cannot pass through objects. Network planners and RF engineers around the globe require up-to-date and accurate data for wireless backhaul planning, including selection and placement of equipment. Intermap’s Telecom Solution Suite is compatible with all major network planning applications. The combination of detailed clutter data with terrain information allows customers to get an accurate, 3D, real-world model of microwave and mm-wave signals. The product is updated continually to ensure the latest information is available to subscribers of the service. Intermap has implemented a production infrastructure that can handle the vast amounts of geospatial data and continual updates required by the industry. Plans include completing the entire globe in early 2020. Nationwide datasets for over 75 countries have been completed in the last four months.
“We are excited to add NEXTApp to our Telecom Solution Suite,” said Patrick A. Blott, Chairman & CEO of Intermap. “A critical component is our continually updated highly accurate resolution dataset. We aspire to deliver maximum value to our customers, and, with this new application, we will provide our customers with updated and fast access to actionable information anywhere on the globe.”
