This module supports detailed design of indoor RF DAS and AP based integrated networks as well as outdoor campus and metro DAS networks. The DAS Design Module accurately portrays both outdoor-to-indoor and indoor-to-outdoor coverage by considering the effect of external transmitters within building environments by including wall attenuation and other factors.
Streamlined Floor Plan Import
Import AutoCAD .DWG files or floor plan image files and easily tag walls and objects of interest with their relevant RF material and height parameters.
Automated Floor Plan Conversion
Automatically create vector wall lines from floor plan image files, allowing simple floor plan setup.
Multiple Floor/Building Design
The DAS Design Module allows multiple buildings and multiple floors in each project, with each floor easily selected from access drop down menus.
Active and Passive DAS Design
Design anything from a simple passive DAS for a single floor to a complex network of active and passive devices that spans multiple floors.
Link Budget Calculations
Each DAS antenna has its EiRP automatically calculated and updated based on the DAS system RF gains and losses. EiRP’s are calculated and used separately for each frequency band used at each DAS antenna.
RF Equipment Library
The DAS Design Module contains a pre-filled library of common RF sources, access points, RF splitters, directional couplers, antennas, RF and DAS cables, combiners, attenuators, DAS hubs and DAS remotes with their associated RF parameters.
Allows for customized views of multiple floor buildings with the DAS equipment layout and prediction plots shown for each floor.
Check for missing connections and RF connector gender mismatches by displaying only the RF components and interconnecting cables with cable lengths and calculated RF power levels.
