Area/Coverage Studies

For projects within SIGNAL, you can set up as many area studies as you like-each based on unique parameters and considering the same or different transmitter groups.  For complete coverage calculation, SIGNAL offers an extensive list of studies including:

  • Shadowing/Line of Sight
  • Path loss
  • Field Strength
  • Received Power
  • Uplink and Downlink Signal Levels
  • C/(I+N) & Aggregate C/(I+N)
  • Group-to-Group interference
  • Bit Error Rate Percent
  • Service Availability
  • Number of Available servers
  • Simulcast Delay Spread
  • Height Required for LOS

*SIGNAL contains over 20 published propagation models with adjustable environmental and reliability parameters.

Full point-to-point analysis

The comprehensive path analysis available in SIGNAL contains rain/fade outages, percent availability and dispersive fade margin along with other consideration.  Adjustable parameters allow you to add trees, buildings or other environmental factors to enhance the accuracy of the link study.  In addition, the interactive display allows you to view real-time link analysis.

Route Study

The Route Study capability in SIGNAL allows you to define a series of specific points along a 2D or 3D route and run area studies to each point.

Databases

SIGNAL is compatible with a wide variety of database formats, making it easy to use data from many sources.  Some of the databases utilized in SIGNAL include:

  • Terrain elevation
  • Land use (clutter)
  • Building/floorplan
  • Demographic
  • Traffic
  • Geographic
  • Address Matching

In order to allow for the most flexibility in using this data, EDX provides the EDXCV utility that can convert data into a format usable by SIGNAL.

Export/image saving/printing

SIGNAL generates study results in KML, KMZ, MIG, MID/MIF or SHP/DBF formats for use with Google Earth, MapInfo or ArcView. Project studies and map views can also be saved as a variety of image files including PDF, JPG, BMP, GIF and TIF.  Advanced print options provide flexibility in system visualization.
