For immediate release
January 27, 2010
EDX emphasizes LTE network design capabilities in this minor version release.
Eugene, OR, January 27, 2010 – EDX Wireless, a recognized leader for RF planning
tools, announced EDX® SignalPro® v7.2 and its related add-on modules are now
available. With a continued commitment to innovation and flexibility, this release
includes new and enhanced features for 4G network operators and their ecosystem
The Network Design Add-On Module for EDX SignalPro includes a new section
dedicated to LTE Systems. These specialized capabilities enable professional and
efficient design, reconfiguration, and optimization of LTE (3GPP E-UTRA) wireless
networks. With built-in support for LTE-specific profiles and band plans, setting up an
LTE system is easier than ever. Further, specialized system engineering capabilities,
such as automatic Cell Group ID assignment are included.
For 4G network designs, MIMO & Adaptive antenna array enhancements allow for
MIMO-A (Space-Time Coding), MIMO-B (Spatial Multiplexing), and SDMA (Adaptive)
antenna types to be uniquely selected for each transmitting sector. Also new is a
powerful Monte Carlo simulation for LTE systems that allows for further exploration of
network performance indicators, such as uplink CQI and interference statistics.
For general RF planning, there are new features to give EDX users even more flexibility.
This includes 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 that provide an easy-to-use interface for working dynamically with equipment databases without leaving the EDX
