Atoll | 155 Mb

Atoll is a 64-bit multi-technology wireless network design and optimisation platform that supports wireless operators throughout the network lifecycle, from initial design to densification and optimisation. Atoll includes integrated single RAN – multiple RAT network design capabilities for both 3GPP (GSM/UMTS/LTE/NB-IoT) and 3GPP2 (CDMA/LTE/NB-IoT) technology streams. It provides operators and vendors with a powerful native 64-bit framework for designing and optimising multi-technology networks. Atoll supports multi-technology HetNets, C-RAN deployment, small cell planning, and also provides IoT network design and optimisation capabilities through the IoT/LPWA and NB-IoT modules.


The Atoll Live module allows integrating live network measurement data such as KPIs and UE/cell traces with predictions and adds open-loop SON capabilities to Atoll.
Atoll’s integration and automation features help operators smoothly automate planning and optimisation processes through flexible scripting and SOA-based mechanisms. Atoll supports a wide range of implementation scenarios, from standalone to enterprise-wide server-based configurations.
With more than 8000 active licenses installed with 500+ customers in 140 countries, Atoll has become the industry standard for radio network planning and optimisation.

Atoll Highlights
Atoll uniquely combines architectural and functional features that provide operators with a powerful, scalable, and flexible framework for streamlining their network design and optimisation processes.
Multi-technology Network Modelling
Atoll is a comprehensive multi-technology radio planning and optimisation platform which includes unified multi-technology GSM/UMTS/LTE/NB-IoT (3GPP) and CDMA/LTE/NB-IoT (3GPP2) traffic models, Monte Carlo simulators, and ACP (Automatic Cell Planning) module. Atoll can model the traffic-related aspects of multi-technology networks and dynamically distribute traffic between multi-technology layers including Wi-Fi and small cells.
Prediction and Measurement-based Planning and Optimisation
Atoll offers unique capabilities of using both predictions and live network data throughout the network planning and optimisation process. Live-network data (KPIs and UE/cell traces) add real-world information and allow for a better modelling of traffic evolution, identifying hot-spots, and tuning propagation data. Live-network data can be also used to drive the planning process (small cell selection) and to steer the optimisation algorithms of the AFP and the ACP.
High Performance GIS
Atoll incorporates a high-performance built-in geographic information system (GIS) exclusively designed for radio network planning and optimisation. Atoll’s 64-bit GIS engine allows working with high-resolution and large-scale geo data while delivering high performance in data manipulation and display.
Atoll supports web map services, online maps (Bing, OSM, etc.), and standard formats including BIL, TIF, BMP, Vertical Mapper, ArcView, MapInfo, etc. Atoll smoothly interfaces with commonly used desktop GIS such as MapInfo and ArcView.
5G Ready
Atoll’s modular architecture and advanced radio technology modelling capabilities, together with support of high-frequency propagation models, provide operators with a flexible and evolving framework for the design and deployment of 5G networks. In 2017, Atoll version 3.3 is being used by major operators for the 1st deployments of pre-standard 5G high capacity fixed wireless access networks, as well as for R&D activities along the development of the 3GPP standards.
In-built Automation and Customisation Capabilities
Atoll’s in-built task automation and integration capabilities enable data as well as service-level integration, allowing operators to automate and streamline network optimisation activities on the way to SON. Atoll’s data exchange and integration capabilities enable integration within service-oriented architectures (SOA) and enterprise service buses (ESB). Moreover, Atoll’s C++ software development kit (SDK) allows customisation and implementation of functional value-added modules for Atoll.
