Having a communications network with full coverage that is capable of meeting customer demands implies choosing the best locations for the components of your infrastructure, such as antennas.

In addition, it is also necessary to take into consideration that the deployment provides the highest possible return on investment.

General Description of this use case

The growing demand for connectivity and the take-off of technologies such as 5G make the deployment of telecommunications networks a more important process than ever, and one for which special care must be taken when investing in it. With the goal of maximum efficiency in mind, a series of nodes consisting of base stations and antennas must be correctly distributed.

If this is achieved, Telco companies will provide a service that meets the needs of their customers and their target audience, with the highest possible levels of coverage. As a result, they will have more satisfied users, gain new customers and retain existing ones, maximising the return on investment.

This is where the concept of RAN Rollout Optimisation comes into play, which encompasses actions such as finding the best locations and configuring the nodes and components that will offer the best performance and make the best use of the available resources. 

To make these decisions easier and more accurate, artificial intelligence allies with geolocated information to determine with a low margin of error where to locate network elements and how to manage their assets, even opening the way to automation when it comes to managing them, reducing costs and maximising profits.

Tell us the particularities and needs your project needs to be able to implement a plan specially designed for you.

What solutions do you need?

To achieve a telecommunications network that is up to the task using RAN, we propose to unleash the full value of geolocated data by processing it with an advanced Artificial Intelligence solution. This has a series of algorithms capable of working with various data sources, both internal and external.

Internal data streams include

  • Call Detail Record (CDR) or connection information (xDR or x Data Record).
  • User demographics, consumption levels, contracted tariffs, etc.
  • Inventory of network infrastructure components.
  • Data involved in the user experience.

Some external data streams to highlight are:

  • Mobility of people: users’ travel habits and patterns.
  • Demographics of the general population.
  • Real Estate to know the reality of the supply and demand of properties and plots of interest.
  • Satellite images of the areas involved.

Telco network optimization

It optimize the rollout of mobile telecommunications networks, improving the user experience so that they enjoy an optimal service in terms of signal quality for each of the telco use cases. In addition, it maximizes the profitability of the core and radio access network infrastructure. All this optimizes the network topology: by placing the right equipment in each of the locations.

many industries this use case applies to?

RAN network rollout optimization is a critical process for a number of industries. From Locatium would like to help you identify the main industries where we can lend a hand to prevent this from happening.



With such a wide offer, telecommunications companies are forced to offer excellent service to their customers to be truly competitive. To achieve this it is necessary to design an infrastructure capable of meeting the needs of the user, as well as doing it with the greatest efficiency. Geolocated information is key to your site selection and deployment.
