Shields focuses on the design and roll-out of Centralized-Radio Access Network (C-RAN) and 5G infrastructure. Its expertise in RF and C-RAN design will be instrumental in building full suites of services to support telecommunication companies and other enterprises in their journey to deploy 5G.
Infosys has in-depth knowledge of the AI/ML and services delivery model to support Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and other enterprises deploying communication networks in achieving quick time to market.
HERE Technologies has performed groundbreaking work in the fields of 3D mapping and developed LiDAR and other remote sensed imagery derivatives, to provide richly attributed datasets in high resolution.
Value to the End Customer
This partnership supports efficient, cost-effective 5G RF design. The companies estimate that their new solution would enable enterprises to reduce the time to identify real estate acquisition for 5G small cells, as well as cut the cost of RF design by more than 40%. Network design tasks are expected to be completed in just a few days, supporting efficient long-term planning for both CAPEX/OPEX to upgrade/change/expand and address the increased capacity demand. The solution builds an accurate representation of reality in a 3D-model, based on scalable 3D datasets derived from terrestrial LiDAR and other remote sensed content from HERE Technologies. This brings a new level of accuracy and detail of street level objects that is not currently provided by traditional GIS-data.
