EDX Wireless updates RF planning tool
EDX Wireless introduced SignalPro v7.2 and its related add-on modules. The network design add-on module includes a new section dedicated to LTE systems. System engineering capabilities such as automatic Cell Group ID assignment also are included.
For 4G network designs, MIMO & adaptive antenna array enhancements allow for MIMO-A, MIMO-B and SDMA antenna types to be selected for each transmitting sector. A Monte Carlo simulation for LTE systems allows for further exploration of network performance indicators, such as uplink CQI and interference statistics.
For general RF planning, a new interface to Siradel’s VolcanoLAB, additional K-factor considerations for link studies, expanded ray-tracing capabilities, additional P25 simulcast studies, and new internal spreadsheet features provide an interface for working dynamically with equipment databases without leaving the EDX environment.
