AT&T and Rakuten Symphony Collaborate to Improve Network Design and Create Carrier Solutions

Enhanced platform designed to simplify and digitize network deployments in Brownfield and Greenfield applications

BARCELONA, February 28, 2021

What are the news? AT&T* and Rakuten Symphony have signed a collaboration agreement to enhance solutions within the Symworld platform to accelerate network planning and deployment in greenfield and brownfield environments. The companies aim to develop and bring solutions to market through the platform leveraging the technologies, experience and expertise currently used for large-scale network deployments by AT&T in the United States and Rakuten Mobile in Japan.

The suite is for both wireless and wired networks and is designed to dramatically speed up deployment cycles. As part of the initial phase of the agreement, the companies are integrating AT&T’s RANFT core technology platform for capacity planning into the solution suite. The RANFT tool utilizes AT&T’s experience and expertise on network builds across various topographies and densities and adds a new dimension to Rakuten Symphony’s Site Manager and more specifically RAN Commander for capacity planning at within the tool suite.
