Telefónica and Samsung Utilize LuxCarta’s Advanced Geodata for First 26 GHz Trial in Germany

5G Simulated on Millimeter Wave Frequencies

Sophia Antipolis, France – January 22, 2019 – LuxCarta, the leading global geodata provider to the wireless ecosystem, announced today it is providing specialized geodata designed for use with RF planning simulations at high frequencies to Telefónica Deutschland and Samsung for their first 26 GHz tests in Hamburg. LuxCarta is providing 2-meter resolution City Planner building models, along with specialized vegetation layers, terrain and clutter for the Hamburg city center and another suburban test area.

“5G networks that utilize mmWave frequencies require more precise geodata for RF simulation planning than any previous generation of network technology,” said Thomas Riedel, head of Samsung Networks Europe. “By using LuxCarta’s specialized geodata – including individual trees – we are able to model the performance of our equipment prior to its deployment and on-air testing with Telefónica.”

Millimeter wave (mmWave, e. g., 26-28 GHz) frequencies are being considered in trials and preliminary network implementations of 5G networks around the world. Unlike traditional wireless networks utilizing frequencies less than 2.6 GHz, mmWave frequencies are substantially impacted when they encounter obstructions. For this reason, it is necessary to account for each individual tree when creating the RF plan with these high frequencies.

“We are happy that LuxCarta has created a geodata solution delivering a close proximity to the environment for real wave propagation at 26 GHz which is actually needed for an accurate modeling of 5G networks used by Telefónica Germany for example for Fixed Wireless Access trials,” said Mads Leth-Espensen, head of Access Network Technology at Telefónica Deutschland.

LuxCarta has been the preeminent producer of high-resolution 3D building data in support of RF engineering for many years. The company has also innovated in the creation of new types of geodata, including 2.5D clutter heights, population maps and 3D tree models for 5G.

“We’re happy to support our long-time customer Telefónica, and partner Samsung, as they prepare for 5G,” said Albéric Maumy, managing director of LuxCarta. “We continue to invest in R&D and improving our production processes to support the wireless ecosystem as it evolves toward this important new technology.”
