Capesso is the market leading automatic cell planning tool. Our customers choose Capesso for the best results, more quickly than any other planning method. It combines data about the radio network with planning objectives like coverage, capacity and quality to automatically find the best network design based on that information.
Capesso is complementary to your existing planning and propagation software. It builds on your investment in that software by automating the multiple network processes. It is tightly integrated with all leading commercial radio network planning tools.
Capesso delivers great value across the full spectrum of cellular radio standards and their high performance extensions including LTE, WCDMA, CDMA, GSM and WiMAX.

MULTIPLE NETWORKS PLANNED JOINTLY
Most operators have multiple radio networks whether it's GSM, WCDMA, LTE or multiple carriers on the same technology. Between networks there is shared equipment like multi-band antennas, or shared performance objectives such as coverage requirements. Capesso can jointly balance the objectives between networks simultaneously to deliver the best system wide performance.
If most operators have multiple networks things become even more interesting when you have multiple operators. This happens with network sharing and mergers of operators. With Capesso you can jointly and simultaneously plan multiple networks and achieve the best results for each of them.
TIGHT INTEGRATION WITH EXISTING TOOLS AND PROCESSES
Symena’s design philosophy is to complement the planning tool and not to replace it. Symena achieves this by tight integration of Capesso with the planning tool. This integration has two parts: one click, hands-off transfer of the data between the tools and Capesso’s internal calculations mimic those of the planning tool used. This ensures that the planning tool and Capesso provide a single view of your network's operation. And this means that Capesso builds on existing investment and processes, minimizes training times and improves productivity.
Capesso delivers practical implementation plans incorporating site availability. The implementation plan provides a build order for the actions required. The great value of this feature is that an engineer can easily see where changes deliver value for money. Why make the last change when it delivers marginal benefit? You can tell with Capesso.
KEY BENEFITS OF CAPESSO INCLUDE:
IMPLEMENTATION PLANNING provides an ordered list of required parameter changes so that the most valuable and effective changes are implemented at the earliest possible moment.
MULTIPLE CALCULATION MODES provide a trade-off between speed of the calculation and accuracy of the modifications proposed. A good result can be obtained very quickly! Where more time or computing power is available these results can be refined using the most comprehensive computation modes.
COMPREHENSIVE REPORTING in Microsoft Excel format makes it easy to incorporate the optimization results into a variety of formats and other systems.
