Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) plays an essential role in facing spectrum availability and coverage issues. It allows adapting the existing 4G LTE deployments to coexist with 5G NR and share the same low-band spectrum used exclusively by LTE today. Leveraging the most advanced 5G Planning module on the CovMo platform, DSS utilization can be analyzed and forecasted. This allows operators to activate the DSS in the right sites and ensure the most optimized DSS implementation.
CovMo enhanced Virtual Drive-Test (eVDT) provides a cost-effective solution that disrupts the conventional optimization process by enabling automated network testing, which has been critical during the COVID-19 crisis. Furthermore, with the normalization of remote technologies adoption, the switch to eVDT will seamlessly assist operators in continuing network testing in a post-COVID world.
