Radio Network Inventory (RNI) is a module that extends functionality of Smallworld Physical Network Inventory (PNI) with enhanced modeling / inventory of radio towers and wireless equipment such as: antennas, Outdoor Units (ODUs) and radio terminals. RNI supports point-to-point connections as well as broadcast devices. RNI module allows Smallworld PNI users to keep data about radio equipment in PNI.
RNI functionality supports key business processes: network planning, connecting new customers to a network, outage management and network maintenance.
