Barcelona, Spain — Mar 17, 2023 — Intellias, a global technology enabler of sustained success for top-tier organizations and Fortune 500 companies, is supporting a software engineering project for WaveScape development for Pivotal Commware, a global leader in 5G mmWave infrastructure products for the wireless edge.
Pivotal Commware is working on the world’s first product ecosystem dedicated to solving millimeter wave’s most vexing challenges, inventing five products from scratch – Echo 5G subscriber repeater, Pivot 5G network repeater, Intelligent Beam Management System (IBMS), WaveScape network planning tool, and Pivotal Turnkey, an end-to-end deployment solution. Pivotal developed WaveScape in-house after determining that existing lower frequency RF planning tools were inadequate for modeling more deterministic and line-of-sight-based mmWave frequencies.
Pivotal looked to Intellias for its experience with high resolution data sets because WaveScape ingests the highest-resolution GIS data available to perform accurate line-of-sight calculations and raytracing to qualify individual residential units for fixed wireless access (FWA). WaveScape ingests other data as well, like candidate locations of gNodeBs as well as sites that can host Pivot 5G repeaters like utility poles, lamp posts, and private building corners that a carrier may have access to. All this accumulated data requires cloud-computing skills, which is another strength of Intellias.
Intellias has helped Pivotal double its WaveScape development output since the relationship began in early February 2022. When Russia invaded Ukraine a week later, Pivotal expected a hit to business continuity, but it never occurred. These steps ensure Intellias’ continued contribution to the new WaveScape features like MDU OptimizerTM and 3D visualization.
It’s an honor for Intellias to contribute to such innovative projects as WaveScape. We’re looking forward to further collaboration to bring to life new telecom solutions.
