Choosing the best RAN planning tool depends on your needs. Here are some options -
Huawei’s Tool - Great for Huawei equipment.
Mycom - Feature-rich but complex.
ExFo - Excellent for testing and monitoring.
TEOCO - Good for analytics and cost management.
Netscout - Strong in performance monitoring.
Actix - User-friendly for drive test data.
Forsk (Atoll) - Accurate and easy to use.
Amdocs - Excellent for service assurance.

I think you can use Atoll, because it is easy to use.
