Telco geodata

Next-gen geodata for next-gen wireless networks

Geodata for the future

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.

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. Many geodata vendors use DigitalGlobe imagery to build their products, but working directly with the source offers model flexibility and global availability.

“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.”

Speed

As the imagery source, we can access and process geodata faster—helping you get to work sooner.

Currency

Our constellation collects more than 3 million sq km each day, increasing the availability of fresh geodata that reflects current ground conditions.

Resolution

Industry-leading 30cm resolution better equips you to identify potential obstructions and confirm line of sight in your model.

DigitalGlobe offers clutter height data, or a full 3D telco data bundle, so you can choose the solution that best meets your needs.

Clutter height data

Recommended for large areas with small cell and macro cell deployment needs

  • 2m, 5m, 10m resolution
  • 3m height data 1m relative accuracy
  • Area size of 1,000 to 1,000,000 sq km

Telco data bundle

Recommended for dense areas with small cell deployment needs

  • 2m resolution
  • Vertical and horizontal accuracy of 3m LE/CE90 (1m RMSE) with Ground Control Points (GCPs)
  • 5m LE/CE90 (3m RMSE) without the use of GCPs.
  • Area size of 25 to 1,000 sq km
