No gateways in the area
Rolling-out a network to provide connectivity for a new application, where locations of nodes are known. With drone mapping you can rapidly determine the best location for the gateway to provide communication to all nodes. Test the gateway position on a building, tower or other structure by flying the drone next to it, prior to investing into fixed deployment to an incorrect location.
Large-area coverage roll-out
Rrequiring a deployment of multiple gateways. To optimize their placement, avoid coverage blind spots due to land cover and increase the battery life of nodes, the coverage of gateways during deployment can be measured with drone mapping and adjusted in the process to create best coverage with minimal effort and equipment.
Partial public network coverage
Where some nodes will be able to connect to existing infrastructure of which coverage may be unknown and some nodes will have no connectivity. With drone mapping the existing coverage in areas of interest can be rapidly determined, blinds spots identified and the locations of additional gateways determined.
