For network operators planning a WiMAX deployment or evaluating an investment in a WiMAX network, the services and expertise of CelPlan coupled with the WiROI Tool will provide all the necessary means to build accurate and convincing business cases and complete the network development cycle - from planning to a successful build out.
The WiROI Business Case Tool has been designed specifically for WiMAX operators and allows them to customize a business case analysis for their target markets. The tool accepts a wide range of market data, technical parameters, and financial and service planning inputs that can be tailored to a particular geography. The WiROI Tool can simulate a WiMAX network deployment and operation using a variety of service plans and produces a detailed 10 year income statement, financial output graphs, and key financial metrics. In addition, the WiROI Tool has an easy-to-use, interactive, dashboard-style Graphical User Interface (GUI) to enable the user to perform sensitivity analysis in real-time and view the results in an animated format instantly.
“We are extremely impressed with the capabilities of the WiROI Tool,” said Mark W. Crompton, VP of Marketing, CelPlan Technologies. “Immediately we could see the added benefits that we could bring to our customers. Our business is focused on developing true, end-to-end solutions for our customers. Using the WiROI Tool enables us to engage with WiMAX operators early in the business planning process. Coupled with our experience in WiMAX network planning, the WiROI Tool greatly expand the range of planning services that we can offer our clients.”
“Working with a leading company such as CelPlan extends the benefits of our WiROI Tool financial modeling, strategic planning and business case development to a wider set of emerging operators,” said Randall Schwartz, Principal Consultant at WiMAX 20/20.
The WiROI Business Case Tool supports over 280 input variables, allowing operators to view customized models of their own particular market deployment, services strategy, and financial constraints.
