EUGENE, OR: EDX Wireless, a carrier-class wireless networks’ design and deployment platform provider announces SignalPro version 8.3 with add-on feature of Remcom’s Wireless InSite X3D ray-tracing model.

By blending SignalPro with the X3D, the users will be able to leverage the benefits of X3D model offered from Remcom to reduce the intricacy in designing a coherent wireless network from the ground-up. “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. The ray-based model dramatically reduces the network calculation time through GPU acceleration. X3D multithreaded platform uniquely delivers in variety of service area environments – urban, indoor and indoor or outdoor by including effects from reflections, diffractions, and transmissions.

“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,” said Roger Skidmore, CEO of EDX Wireless.

SignalPro 8.3 enables engineers to architect a complete and highly accurate model of site specific network calculations by capitalizing on the three dimensional features of the environment including building structures, floor plans, and terrain elevations where the wireless networks will be deployed. The revamped technique for network modeling showcases the way in which the signals interact with relevant features in the propagation environment.

Integrated X3D feature facilitates exact path algorithm that significantly improves accuracy of predictions. Furthermore, the time required to achieve the start-to-end predictive simulations speeds up due to GPU acceleration. Belmonte added, “X3D was developed to provide efficient and accurate predictions of propagation communication channel characteristics in complex environments.”

“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 Skidmore.
