Eugene, OR. January 2, 2017 – EDX Wireless, the leading provider of wireless network design solutions announces the release of SignalPro v8.5. The latest wireless network design and optimization software from EDX contains many new features and upgrades that will streamline Mesh, In-Building, IoT and 5G design and deployments.
Expanding on the automated features within SignalPro and the Mesh Network Module, the Mesh-Aware capacity planning feature allows users to determine the best network router locations based on mesh hopping, capacity constraints and terrain considerations. Furthermore, this feature set now allows users to include cost in network calculations – adding a vital component to system design by taking into account router cost and cost per meter served.
SignalPro v8.5 also includes automatic tuning for clutter pass through loss. This addition to the auto tuning features of SignalPro seamlessly configures predictive and measurement data by considering each land use type that may be present in a given path profile and tuning the propagation model accordingly. This feature is particularly useful in the design of short-range networks such as Mesh, IoT, LoRa and 5G and minimizes or eliminates the need for extensive field measurement operations.
