Next-Gen Geodata for Next-Gen Wireless Networks
The telecommunication industry's fifth-generation network (5G) will rely on high frequency spectrum to deliver increased speeds and network capacity, a signal so sensitive it can be blocked by the palm of your hand. That makes things a lot more complicated.
How do you design or optimize for 5G when obstructions are so influential on your signal propagation? With advanced geodata derived from the most current, high-resolution satellite imagery available.
Why is good geodata so critical for 5G planning?
High-resolution, up-to-date maps deliver valuable context—an advantageous difference between making informed decisions and taking a guess.Learn more
A critical input for network innovation
Straight from the source
DigitalGlobe is the leader in high-resolution satellite imagery and geospatial solutions. Our ecosystem of partners and advanced technologies empowers innovation across industries, while giving you flexibility and availability across the globe.
“We used to rely on lower quality clutter data in the New York area. With this data, 60% of all our planned links failed when they were checked by our surveyors. Now, thanks to the accurate and complete representation of building and foliage in the Vricon 3D data provided by DigitalGlobe, we are able to confidently reject blocked links and pick the clear links, all within our virtual desk plan. Thanks to this high-quality clutter height data, we have seen a 98% decrease in false positives.”

Quality at scale
As the imagery source, we can access and process geodata faster—helping you get to work sooner.
Our constellation collects about 3 million sq km each day, increasing the availability of fresh geodata that reflects current ground conditions.
Resolution & accuracy
Industry-leading resolution and accuracy better equip you to identify potential obstructions and confirm line of sight in your model.
