The X3D model from Remcom uses GPU acceleration to greatly reduce calculation time. The model includes effects from reflections, diffractions, and transmissions and serves a variety of service area environments including urban, indoor and indoor/outdoor. The X3D model is now available as an add-on product from EDX, allowing users to take advantage of these features in SignalPro projects.
“As networks evolve, it becomes critical to use planning models that consider the intricate nature of not only the networks themselves, but the service areas in which they are deployed,” said Roger Skidmore, CEO of EDX Wireless. “We are pleased to be able to offer the Remcom X3D module as part of our product line-up and take network planning to that next level.”
By using SignalPro with the X3D model, engineers are able to take into account the three dimensional features of the environment where wireless networks will be deployed, including building structures, floorplans, and terrain elevations. This approach to network modeling shows how signals interact with relevant features in the propagation environment and provides a comprehensive and highly accurate model of site specific network calculations. X3D’s exact path algorithm assures that predictions are accurate, and the GPU acceleration significantly reduces the time to complete predictive simulations.
“With the X3D model‘s efficient ray tracing processing capabilities, users will be able to include more complex scene elements in their analyses without sacrificing run time,” said Ruth Silber Belmonte, Product Manager of Wireless InSite at Remcom, Inc. “X3D was developed to provide efficient and accurate predictions of propagation communication channel characteristics in complex environments.”
EDX SignalPro, along with Remcom’s Wireless InSite X3D ray-tracing model, offers the most powerful network planning tool available to engineers.
