Coverage Processing

Coverage Processing can be used to process raster RF signal strength data output from RF planning tools into cleaned and simplified polygon data that is easy to visualize and understand.

Output from the solution can be shared in applications for sales and customer staff to determine signal strengths for locations within a service area. Output can also be used in applications to help customers visualize coverage in their area.


Coverage Processing requires specific technical experience and software.
