Wireless tower - General Dynamics provides wireless network solutions

Network Planning and Design

Network Planning and Design

General Dynamics Wireless Services understands that successful turnkey deployments rely heavily on the complete integration and involvement of radio access network (RAN) engineering. From project kickoff to handover, our team’s engineers work closely with the client to ensure a reliable, robust network, deployed on-time and on-budget.

Utilizing the most advanced GIS and RF planning tools, skilled RF engineers design a network based on the unique requirements and characteristics of a specific region. Our knowledge covers all wireless technologies, utilizing a unique combination of commercial, public safety, military experience, technical leadership and best-practice engineering management.

General Dynamics RF engineering services have supported some of the largest wireless carriers. Our expertise ranges from deploying third and fourth generation wireless telecommunications networks for commercial carriers, to implementing wireless LAN and WAN solutions for enterprise customers.

RF engineering involvement spans the whole network life-cycle from initial planning and launch, to coverage, capacity and feature expansion, using evolving the following technology migrations:

  • Technology needs assessment
    • Assessment of technological and business objectives to determine technology solutions and meet defined network plans
  • Planning and design
    • Identification and definition of requirements, link budget formation, interference analysis, technology overlays, preliminary and final designs, traffic and capacity dimensioning, and spectrum planning
  • Implementation
    • Site surveys, RF exposure analysis, benchmarking, acceptance testing, co-location studies and complex antenna system configurations

Our wireless engineering lab explores the full range of technologies, design options and architectures to develop the best solutions. Whether you are looking for a wide-area network solution or a modular emergency system, we have the experience necessary to meet your wireless needs with radio access technologies.
