Collins Mobile Coverage? Have you considered Network Insight?
Considering Collins Mobile Coverage? You may have already discovered that there are very few experienced vendors for telecommunication coverage map services. Whether your are looking for domestic or roaming coverage maps, Europa Technologies offer their renown Network Insight service to meet your exacting needs. If you are sourcing a coverage map service supplier, please consider the following “three Cs”:
- Coverage – For roaming maps, how many network coverage maps are included? Are the technologies you need supported? e.g. LTE
- Cartography – Is the coverage simply overlaid on a background map or properly integrated? Can the user zoom in sufficiently?
- Capabilities – What experience does the vendor have to meet your needs as they inevitably evolve? e.g. M2M and IoT projects, internal coverage map tools.
