Advance Propsagation Module

The Advanced Propagation Module is an add-on to EDX SignalPro® that offers highly accurate, site-specific calculations of pathloss, delay spread, and arrival angle spread for indoor, small-scale outdoor, and indoor-outdoor wireless network design.
The Advanced Propagation Module provides a cost-effective approach for doing highly accurate site-specific wireless propagation calculations that explicitly take into account detailed building and floor plan features describing the propagation environment.
Applications:
Because of its comprehensive image-based approach, the ray-tracing models in EDX’s Advanced Propagation Module are best suited to network deployments in indoor, campus-wide or other relatively small-scale outdoor situations where the number of structures and walls is limited.  It can handle propagation calculations between floors in multi-floor buildings as well as indoor-to-outdoor (and outdoor-to-indoor) calculations for wireless networks deployed in commercial or academic campus-wide situations.
