Bulgarian operator Mtel migrates to Odyssey radio planning tool

Mtel (formally known as Mobiltel EAD), the Bulgarian wireless operator, has selected and implemented Andrew Corporation's Odyssey cellular radio planning software system in order to replace a previous radio planning tool.

Odyssey is designed to provide radio frequency design for the complete network lifecycle, and is claimed to significantly enhance a wireless operator's ability to save network planning time and infrastructure costs.

With Odyssey, Mtel can now carry out network planning with its fellow operators in the Mobilkom Austria Group (MAG), the wireless segment of Telekom Austria to which it belongs.

All MAG operators use Odyssey, and two of the four operators, including Mtel, use it in combination with Andrew's Omnix workflow and infrastructure management system.Migrating to a new radio planning tool is all too often considered a notoriously difficult process, with the investment in training time and database migration seen as the major obstacles that typically prevent operators from switching to a better radio planning tool. Andrew's support team worked closely in guiding and assisting Mtel's team through every step of the migration process.
