What is a 4G, LTE, and 5G Site Assessment?

A Site Assessment will determine if the cellular signal received at a specific location is sufficiently strong enough to provide a viable access technology for primary or failover connectivity. It is undertaken by a certified radio engineer and provides the testing and technical data required to quantify a location's spectrum availability.

What is included in a Certified Site Assessment Report ?

A certified radio engineer will prepare a comprehensive feasibility assessment report which will

  • identify optimal 4G | LTE | 5G base station - carrier agnostic
  • provide diagrams detailing the optimal base station(s), GPS coordinates, aligned carrier
  • measure 4G | LTE | 5G signal strength and throughput
  • provide diagrams of Line Of Sight findings
  • provide details of observed challenges e.g. signal contention, installation points.
  • recommend whether an external antenna would be required
  • provide an overall Site Feasibility Finding 
  • determine if a 5G or LTE wireless WAN solution is feasible

 Site Feasibility Recommendation

 Is 5G a feasible connectivity access technology for this site? Will it enable your use case.


Use Cases for 5G | 4G LTE in Australian organisations

Use Case 1

New Site Connectivity

Enterprise customers setting up new retail branches, warehouses and other sites  requiring a strong reliable connection which can be provisioned faster than a suitable fixed access.

Use Case 2.1

Wide Area Networks WAN

Customers with both fixed and wireless links can utilise EEW in an active/active routing/SDWAN setup as a means to distribute traffic / load balancing.

Use Case 3

Existing site connectivity

Enterprises wanting to complement an existing fixed connection in an active/active setup to provide more resilience, being confident that the full load of that site can be carried for extended periods. E.g. enterprise retail, wholesale suppliers, logistics, hospitals.

Use Case 4.1

Semi-temporary sites

Enterprise customers requiring a strong reliable connection for sites that may have a tenure of 6 months to 2 years and can be deployed much faster than a fixed access. E.g. construction huts , retail kiosks. event venues

Do you have a site you want to assess for LTE and 5G viability?

A 4G LTE and 5G site assessment will provide you with an expert evaluation of whether a site is eligible to proceed to a wireless Proof of Concept.

The first step is to understand the availability of LTE|5G at the location and ensure there is access to a signal strength that meets your connectivity needs.

Cost: $400 inc.GST

Duration: 2 weeks from order to completion

Outcome: Validation of LTE|5G feasibility at identified location.

Complete the form and we will contact you to discuss your LTE|5G Site Assessment requirements.

Why Cradlepoint hardware?

MobileCorp recommends Cradlepoint, the world's leading 5G edge devices incorporating

  • built-in security including zone-based firewall, threat management and web/content filtering. Meeting the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard enabling the highest standards of protection for credit card data and transactions.
  • intelligent traffic routing using NetCloud to set policies to optimise bandwidth and enhance application performance. NetCloud starts by providing traffic steering, application-awareness, and management tools to enhance WAN performance.

  • optimises cellular use providing special insight into wireless usage, how carriers are supported (even dual modems and multiple carriers), overall data usage, and layer 7 information, such as what applications are used across the WAN.

  • automatic failover and failback with the 5G endpoints sensing the primary connection failure and switching over to the secondary connection — often without the onsite personnel noticing the change. Once the primary connection is restored, the NetCloud Service switches the connection back without any disruption.
  • out-of-band management to mitigate the effects of an unreachable router. With a direct connection from the console port of the LTE adapter to the router, network administrators can connect to the router over the air, even if IP and Ethernet are not functioning or available on the router.

  • dynamic routing protocols, VPN support and Data centre support

What else do I need to know about 5G?

Fact #1. 5G is currently available across 85 percent of the Australian population and in all of our cities and regional centres. (2023)

Fact #2. 5G is a small cell network with signal strength degraded by line of sight obstacles. Indoor reception usually requires an external antenna. 

Fact #3. Through-put - up and down - will vary. Factors that could impact through-put include network congestion, weather conditions, line-of-sight barriers.

Fact #4. 5G wireless WAN is already being utilised by a number of Australian organisations for both primary and failover links.
