Orange France selects AIRCOM International for LTE Network Planning

Leatherhead, UK – 17 September 2013 AIRCOM International, the leading independent network planning and optimisation software and solutions provider, today announces that Orange France has selected ASSET, its proven network planning solution, to plan its LTE network.

ASSET is already the recommended RF planning tool for the Orange Group, with 30 affiliates worldwide relying on it for their radio planning. ASSET allows seamless and reliable integration to systems such as inventory, site acquisition, site rollout, configuration management and performance management. This sharing of data provides significant improvements in planning accuracy and drives greater business process efficiency.

Orange France has a long term partnership with AIRCOM having deployed the solution across its 2G and 3G networks. Incorporating ASSET into its LTE planning will ensure Orange France is able to prepare for the new technology while managing the existing networks.

“AIRCOM has proven to be a very reliable partner to Orange France. The company’s detailed and accurate LTE modelling made it the perfect choice for our LTE planning needs,” according to Fadi Abou Karam, Radio Planning Tools Project Manager at Orange France. “The seamless integration of ASSET with our existing software and systems will ensure the benefits we enjoy across our GSM and UMTS networks can be easily applied to our LTE infrastructure.”

“As a long-term and highly valued AIRCOM customer, Orange France has enjoyed the benefits our ASSET solution delivers across multiple network technologies,” said Alwyn Welch, CEO, AIRCOM International. “We are delighted to continue to be the partner of choice for Orange France in the management of its RF network planning and optimisation activities.”
