Next-Generation Network Planning Platform Offers MultiRAN Support, Enhanced LTE Modeling and Improved Ease-of-Use

July 8, 2010

PARIS, FRANCE - Mentum®, the industry’s leading wireless
access and backhaul network planning and optimization company, announced
today the release of Mentum Planet® 5.2.

Mentum Planet is a Windows-based software solution that helps wireless
operators, integrators, and equipment vendors plan, manage and improve the
performance of wireless access networks. The latest release of the
industry’s most widely used network planning platform supports all major
Radio Access Network technologies in a single environment, providing network
operators with the ability to plan and implement new technology overlays
onto existing networks. The architecture of the new platform enables users
to model multi-band and shared antennas, including MIMO and smart antennas,
between different technologies.

“The Mentum Planet 5 development project began with two key drivers: a
strong focus on advanced technologies and a drive to improve ease-of use.
Our commitment to quality and innovation has solidified Mentum’s position as
an industry leader in 4G network planning. Mentum Planet 5.2 is a critical
milestone of this development project offering support for all major
wireless standards in a single, next-generation platform,“ said Bernard
Breton, Chief Operating and Strategy Officer at Mentum.

Mentum Planet 5.2 adds several new features such as the Automatic Site
Placement tool that allows users to generate new network plans with a few
clicks of the mouse thus fast tracking the deployment of new networks and
the ability to investigate various potential deployment scenarios. The
integration of MapInfo Professional™ version 10.0 offers exciting new
capabilities including a new interactive layer control, a modern new
interface as well as dockable menus and toolbars. Mentum Planet 5.2 now
includes complete support for GSM, GPRS, EDGE, WCDMA, HSPA, HSPA+, LTE,
WiMAX, cdma2000, EVDO, TDMA, FDMA, DVB-H, MediaFlo and Simulcast wireless

Mentum Planet continues to lead the industry in accuracy, performance and
innovation,” commented Gregory Donnard, Product Manager at Mentum. “With its
support for all wireless technologies, Mentum Planet 5.2 is the right
solution for network operators overlaying broadband wireless technologies
and refarming spectrum from legacy networks.”
