CellularOne of East Central Illinois Selects ClearSky’s NetView 360 to Optimize Its Wireless Network

ORLANDO, FL –March 19, 2015 – ClearSky Technologies, Inc., a global provider of network optimization and hosted infrastructure, has announced an agreement with CellularOne® of East Central Illinois that will help to maximize coverage, enhance capacity and improve end-user experience. CellularOne® selected ClearSky for the company’s extensive network expertise and its NetView 360 RF network optimization solution that analyzes and develops high-performance network strategies.

NetView 360 uses a state-of-the-art approach to traffic modeling that gives a Mobile Network Operator (MNO) the capability to identify coverage gaps and high data traffic areas and determine the best corrective strategies. The platform can determine the optimal combination of wireless infrastructure options for indoor, outdoor, low power or high power scenarios, with accuracy of one meter.

“ClearSky’s NetView 360 optimization and planning tool was an integral part of our comprehensive network optimization strategy,” stated Jake Kasper, Data Services and Product Development Manager. “Their experience with handling complex networks saved us significant time and money.”

As a comprehensive solution, NetView 360 weighs all variables such as frequency band, building geometry, clutter, and availability of backhaul, to facilitate the most effective combination of small cells and other technologies for maximum network performance and efficiency.  Providing quick, accurate results, the state-of-the-art analytics tool is managed by ClearSky engineers, who have been helping MNOs optimize networks for more than a decade.  The ClearSky team delivered complete results to CellularOne® in just two weeks.

“Constant growth and change in network requirements and technologies have made it more and more challenging for operators to sustain efficient networks and manage coverage and capacity needs over time,” said Tony Tagliareni, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of ClearSky. “NetView 360 takes the guesswork out of the process, regardless of network topology or spectrum.”
