The market leading radio network planning tool and ACP together for the first time
Leatherhead UK, 4 July 2012 - AIRCOM International, the leading independent network planning and optimisation solutions provider, has today announced the availability of Symena's Capesso™ for ASSET. Capesso™ offers several significant advantages over other ACP tools integrated with ASSET. These advantages include greater productivity delivered by the fastest algorithms, reliable convergence with automatic termination of processing runs, and the purpose built Capesso™ Inspector GIS for easy comparison of network configurations.
"We are very excited that Capesso™ is already available for our ASSET customers," said Stephen Bowker, CTO of AIRCOM. "This release is the first fruit of AIRCOM's acquisition of Symena in April this year. With the tight integration and calibration to ASSET users gain the benefits of high-speed advanced optimisation algorithms across all technologies in an easy to use, intuitive user interface. Adding Capesso™ to an ASSET deployment is sure to improve productivity and deliver optimal radio plans."
"Symena is the only developer of ACP algorithms where getting the best possible results in the shortest time is central to the business," said Dr Martin Toeltsch, CTO of Symena. "We have been investing in this technology for more than 10 years now and we will continue to invest. This release is all about delivering the benefits of Capesso™ to ASSET's users: the best results in the shortest time in a simple, easy-to-use, fully integrated package."
Capesso™ is already deployed with ASSET at a Tier 1 operator and available immediately.
