VIAVI Introduces 3D Geolocation for 5G Networks

By Ken Briodagh July 06, 2020

Viavi Solutions recently announced that it has expanded its NITRO Mobile assurance portfolio with two new solutions – GEOperformance 5G and Coverage Assurance 5G. The two solutions reportedly are designed to give operators a 3D view of 5G coverage and subscriber experience and help mobile operators attract new vertical markets and drive new revenue streams.

GEOperformance 5G is designed to provide a 3D view of 5G NR (New Radio) measurements, and 2G, 3G and 4G measurements, in order to allow mobile operators to plan, assure and optimize multi-technology networks as they build out their 5G networks. Coverage Assurance 5G reportedly delivers a subscriber-centric view of 5G experience, and automated workflows designed to improve the subscriber experience. Both solutions are powered by the Network Integrated Test, Real-time analytics and Optimization (NITRO) intelligence platform.

“A 2D view is not going to cut it in 5G network assurance,” said Steve Urvik, VP and GM, Visibility, Intelligence and Analytics, VIAVI. “In urban areas, which are the first locations to gain 5G, a 2D representation of 5G coverage in a multi-floor office building will be virtually meaningless. Operators wouldn’t be able to intelligently optimize subscriber experience based on that and it certainly wouldn’t be granular enough for them to exploit new commercial 5G and IoT opportunities.”
