LuxCarta, the leading global 5G mapping provider to the wireless ecosystem, announced today it is delivering its new specialized geodata to support simulation planning for 5G trials involving Orange Romania and Samsung in Romania. The company is providing its new 3D tree model digital maps, along with 3D buildings and related terrain & clutter designed for use with centimeter and millimeter wave (cmWave and mmWave) frequencies for the 5G customer trial.
Many countries are considering cmWave (6 – 30 GHz) and mmWave frequencies (30 – 300 GHz) for their 5G networks. All of these frequencies can carry much higher amounts of data, but their propagation distance is dramatically shorter than frequencies historically used in digital wireless systems (i.e., 800 MHz to 2.4 GHz). In particular, cmWave and mmWave frequencies attenuate dramatically when they encounter obstructions, either manmade or natural.
LuxCarta has been the RF maps leading provider of 3D building data to the wireless ecosystem for many years in support of 3D propagation modeling in dense urban areas employing 4G technologies. Its new 3D tree model provides a high-resolution vector or raster representation of individual trees that dramatically impact 5G propagation. The company anticipates growth in demand for its 3D geodata driven by 5G tests and eventual rollouts beyond the urban core into industrial, suburban and other populated areas.
