CGI CarnotSat enables accelerated delivery of 5G, reduces the costs of rolling out large-scale and rural networks and enables the introduction of new hybrid applications, for example connected cars or Internet of Things (IoT).

Planning and deployment of heterogeneous terrestrial/satellite networks

CGI CarnotSat is a software tool that allows mobile network operators to carry out scenario based modelling and to explore use cases across vertical markets. CGI CarnotSat can create new or augmented network designs with any backhaul solution, including satellites, microwave backhaul and fiber.

These designs can then be analyzed for cost and performance versus business goals. The tool will show where bringing satellite communications into a 4G or 5G network can provide reduced time to market, wider geographical coverage, at a lower cost and improve network performance.

Benefits of using CGI CarnotSat

CGI CarnotSat is a computer-aided radio network optimization tool. It can help you:

  • Deliver a single source of backhaul options.
  • Identify where satellite backhaul could lower costs and improve coverage.
  • Contribute to new differentiated services.
  • Support network optimization using satellites.
  • Support the development of new use case solutions.
  • Create a more responsive service delivery model.
  • Demonstrate at scale how satellite connectivity could increase revenues for network operators.

"Space for 5G is a matter of strategic importance for the European Space Agency,” Georgios Ziaragkas, Technical Officer for CarnotSat at ESA

CGI CarnotSat was developed after talking to mobile network operators and other key stakeholders for 5G.

There are many locations both in the UK and globally that don’t have sufficient access to terrestrial connectivity in order to support 100% 5G coverage, and CGI CarnotSat provides 5G planners with the tool-set they need to achieve this.

CGI CarnotSat to accelerate the roll-out of 5G

New planning tool, developed with the European Space Agency, will help make 5G connectivity a reality for everyone, everywhere.

Our recently launched CGI CarnotSat software solution  will let network operators plan and deploy combined terrestrial and satellite networks. The solution will help accelerate delivery of 5G connectivity everywhere, reduce the cost of rolling out large-scale and rural networks, and support next-generation, hybrid applications, such as connected cars.
