As wireless operators upgrade their microwave backhaul networks to keep
up with increasing demands for capacity, Comsearch,
company, has launched a new suite of support services aimed at reducing
operators’ capital and operating expenditures and speeding network
Services suite includes four offerings that provide network
engineering analysis as well as software database and system maintenance
to enable network planners to roll out high capacity backhaul networks
quickly and efficiently. These services allow network planners to focus
on their core expertise by off-loading other time-consuming tasks.
“The operator’s need for increased transport capacity has driven the
demand for microwave backhaul to new levels,” said Chris Hardy, vice
president and general manager, Comsearch. “The need for additional
resources to meet this demand has also increased, and Comsearch has
found that outsourcing many labor-intensive activities is proving very
popular in the industry.”
Comsearch is uniquely qualified to support network planners around the
globe. The company has been a leader in microwave network planning and
design for over 30 years and created the iQ.link
microwave planning software tool, which has been responsible for the
design of over 250,000 links worldwide.
The iQ.link Services suite includes the following four options, offered
on a 12-month or other fixed-term contract, which can be utilized
individually or in combination:

their backhaul network can use this service to quickly determine the
impact on spectrum requirements, equipment upgrades, and more.

this service to increase planning efficiency and eliminate costly
mistakes related to the use of outdated or incorrect equipment
