In this blog, we explain exactly how WISPs can harness CnHeat to target the most promising growth areas, make informed decisions, and achieve long-term success and scalability.

Strategic Expansion Planning with CnHeat

Expanding your coverage isn’t just about throwing up more towers and hoping for the best. You need a plan. With CnHeat, WISPs can generate highly accurate coverage maps and connection predictions, allowing you to visualize potential service areas with unprecedented precision.

This radio frequency (RF) planning software leverages advanced algorithms and LiDAR data to create detailed models of coverage areas.

By using CnHeat, WISPs can:

  • Assess Current Coverage: See exactly where your coverage is strong and where you’ve got gaps.
  • Identify Coverage Gaps: Pinpoint areas where coverage is lacking and needs improvement.
  • Work Smarter: Allocate your resources to the places that’ll give you the best bang for your buck.

Identifying and Prioritizing New WISP Market Opportunities

One of the most significant advantages of CnHeat is its ability to help WISPs identify and prioritize new market opportunities. Instead of relying on broad, often inaccurate estimates, or tedious manual inspections, CnHeat provides precise data on which locations have the best connectivity potential.

Steps to Identify and Prioritize Opportunities:

  1. Collect Your Data: Gather info from your existing towers and feed it into CnHeat.
  2. Generate Coverage Maps: Use CnHeat to create detailed coverage maps that highlight areas of strong signal strength and connectivity.
  3. Evaluate the Potential: Look at those maps and figure out which areas have the most promise.
  4. Rank the Areas: Prioritize based on population density, demand, and ease of infrastructure development.

This way, you’re not just throwing darts at a map—you’re making informed, strategic decisions about your business’s growth.

CnHeat's detailed insights support scalable growth. As your business expands, you can continue to use the tool to assess new areas, ensuring each step of your expansion is backed by data. This makes it easier to replicate success and maintain service quality across a growing network.
