The Red Oak team has extensive experience and a deep understanding of planning, designing, building, and maintaining telecommunications networks. As wireless technologies evolve to enable economies and connectivity, network dependence and reliability become ever so important. This is where Red Oak’s experience and team of expert, agile network engineers can play an instrumental role in designing, building, testing, and maintaining next generation networks. Engage with the following network services via a number of models from staff augmentation to full turnkey solutions.
Red Oak’s network engineering team’s deep industry, technical expertise and expertise in tools such as PlanetEV and EDX SignalPro, can supplement the current RF planning team, or provide a complete outsourced engagement, using preferred design methodology.
Once a network has been designed, it is equally important to ensure it continues to perform at optimal levels. Red Oak’s drive testing services can provide this confidence and assurance. The service can be used to benchmark networks against competition’s network, launch services innew markets and ensuring acceptance testing requirements are met.
The Red Oak team also provides drawing services for site engineering, using Visio and AutoCAD, including drawings for compound and shelter layouts, cabling/interconnect drawings, rack layouts, and tower profiles.
DAS & SMALL CELL
Good in-building cellular service is critical to customer satisfaction and retention. Red Oak is an expert in all aspects of the design of in-building and small cell antenna systems, including multi- carrier DAS. Our services include design using iBWave, site surveys, engineering drawing preparation, continuous-wave and baseline testing, PIM and cable sweep testing, and acceptance testing.
Red Oak’s Wi-Fi services include site surveys, network design using tools such as Ekahau, commissioning, installation and deployment, and acceptance testing.
The Internet of Things (IoT) continues to transform our lives from transportation and agriculture to energy management, home automation, health care and beyond. Red Oak continues play a key role in this revolution via its expertise in a number of IoT technologies such as NB-IoT, LTE-CatM, LoRa, SigFox, Ingenu, BLE, Zigbee Pro. Red Oak’s IoT services include scenario and use case development, business case development, network design, site surveys, implementation, and data analytics.
RF SITE SAFETY
As public concern rises around the safety of RF emissions, compliance assurance is more critical than ever before. The leading operators trust Red Oak’s audit and compliance services globally ensuring compliance to standards such as OET-65 (United States), Safety Code 6 (Canada), ICNIRP (Europe), and RPS-3 (Australia). With expertise in accepted methodologies such as measurement and mathematical analysis, the Red Oak team has prepared thousands of reports for a wide range of national and regional service providers, as well as public safety agencies, school boards, and municipalities.
The Red Oak team conducts analyses using EMF Visual, the most popular RF safety evaluation tool in the industry today. In addition to RF safety compliance evaluation by analysis, the team also offer evaluations through on-site measurements using Narda equipment. Approval for new tower site construction often requires public consultations through a region’sland use authority. The team has decades of experience providing support in these events, helping businesses to educate the public about RF Safety facts and myths, and present site emissions levels in an independent, objective manner.
POINT TO POINT NETWORKS
When it comes to voice and data traffic management, the Red Oak network engineering team has the expertise to engineer links to prevent congestion and performance bottlenecks, and has designed hundreds of microwave backhaul links. By leveraging industry-standard tools such as PathLoss, the Red Oak team ensure the microwave links support the projected traffic demand at the targeted link availability. The services here include link design, frequency coordination to ensure against interference, and licensed spectrum application with regulatory agencies, such as the FCC or ISED.
Consulting Services for Governments: High-speed internet is critical for economic development. That’s why many countries have categorized high-speed internet as an essential service, alongside electricity and water. When market forces alone are not sufficient to drive internet availability, particularly common in rural areas with lower population density, government assistance is often required. The Red Oak team can help in questions around coverage and speeds required as well as the cost of deploying a robust network.
Consulting Services for Enterprise: The Red Oak engineering team is well versed in a wide range of technologies and equipmentvendors. Since the team doesn’t represent a particular vendor, the services offered are impartial, keeping the customer’s best interest in mind. Typically the consulting services begin with a discovery sessions where the team learns about business objectives before a range of options are explored that include technology strategy development and comparisons, business case and total-cost-of-ownership analysis, RFP creation and vendor selection support, design and implementation oversight, and acceptance testing support.
