Nova Geo

Automated & geolocated RF optimization

Nova Geo is a multi-technology & multi-vendor radio optimization tool which measures RF coverage & quality of the network. It facilitates daily radio optimization tasks by automating recurrent analysis and reduces drastically the number of drive tests.

Astellia’s fully virtualized Nova Geo solution supports the most advanced geolocation techniques  such as trilateration, fingerprinting and multilateration, hereby guaranteeing first class accuracy in locating devices  and radio conditions across multi-technology networks (2G/3G/4G/LPWAN).



  • Operational efficiency improvement
  • Drive tests reduction by 80%
  • CAPEX savings & improved capacity
  • Customer-value based optimization
  • Faster network roll-out deployment

Fast and massive performance maps

Nova Geo features state of the art geolocation technology that leverages radio measurement data to produce 24×7 massive performance maps (i.e. RF coverage, traffic, quality, etc.), from nation-wide coverage down to 50x50m. The advanced solution architecture provides the fastest solution in the market to calculate the maps and make them available through the user interface.

Machine learning algorithms

Nova Geo’s classification algorithms distinguish indoor/outdoor, static/mobility calls. Combined with advanced location aware algorithms, it precisely locates capacity hotspots, coverage holes, pilot pollution and VIP areas to target and prioritize network operations such as new site introduction, small cell planning and parameters tuning.

Powerful geo-analytics

Multiple map filtering options provide users with capabilities to perform in-depth analysis based on user-defined geographical areas. By leveraging Astellia’s probing solution, geolocation maps can be enriched with very valuable User Plane information such as application usage and video quality.
