Modelling Distributed Antenna Systems with Atoll

January 5, 2011 - Deployments of Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) have dramatically increased in recent years as a way for operators to expand their network coverage in areas where traditional wireless sites are not an option. As part of its R&D effort, Forsk has developed advanced network modelling features for Atoll which supports Distributed Antenna Systems and models how they expand coverage and integrate with the whole wireless network.

The new CrossWave propagation model naturally complements these Atoll DAS modelling features by delivering accurate micro-cell predictions as well as indoor prediction capabilities.

As a result, Atoll has been selected by the main DAS providers in North America – including American Tower, Crown Castle, Extenet Systems and NextG Networks – to design and optimise Distributed Antenna Systems for 2G, 3G and 4G networks.
