There are three stages that network planning can be used:
1) Pre-Sales planning which is a course pre-tender plan to prepare the right LOM.
2) Post-Sales planning which is Fine plan to meet required specifications and to optimize the Performance.
3) Future Expansion to optimize the network in future
DECLoop™ does not require any sort of frequency planning, but in order to have a reliable system with minimum cost, network planning is an essential issue to any kind of wireless networks.
Coverage analysis, Interference analysis, Traffic analysis and Air interface analysis must be done simultaneously. These are dependent functions with mutual effects and doing simultaneous analysis makes network planning more complex. The best solution is proprietary simulation tools that are specifically designed for the communication systems to be used.
