There are many things we do within their software to maximize prediction accuracy and optimize the design of networks – 3D modeling, inclined surfaces, body loss modeling, etc – but one of the less talked about yet more powerful ways to maximize prediction results is by using the ‘Prediction Calibration’ feature in the software.Read More
Bring it CBRS, we are ready for you!
Or at least those who attended our recent webinar are : ) The recent discussion we had with Federated Wireless, SpiderCloud Wireless and Clear to Send have certainly given us a better picture of what CBRS is, how it may influence the wireless industry and what network design challenges it might bring.Read More
As one of the largest package delivery and logistics companies in the world, one of our newest iBwave customers came to us wondering how our software could improve their existing process for deploying and managing their many Wi-Fi networks across thousands of their facilities around the world.Read More
The topic of the Internet of Things (IoT) is more prevalent nowadays in online tech discussions and "trends this year" articles than ever before. Beyond the wearables and home automation devices out there, what is IoT in a B2B context and what are the most prevalent wireless networks that connect them?Read More
Warning: This blog contains 3D models that may cause you to whoop and holler.
There are a few capabilities that iBwave is well known for in the market, but certainly, one of the most stand-out capabilities is the 3D modeling that comes with the iBwave wireless network design software. And while we can all agree that the 3D models are awesome to look at, the real value behind why our customers use this feature for their network designs is because of the level of prediction accuracy it allows them to pass onto their customers and the network end users – and as a result, the time and cost savings that comes along with it. Plus yes, the 3D models certainly are a marketing feature for any of our customers in the bidding process, enabling them with a powerful and visual way display exactly how the network they've designed will perform in customer's venue.Read More
iBwave's Components Database is the Largest Database in the Wireless Industry Today
With over 28,000 components and materials and growing daily.
Those who design wireless networks with iBwave know that it's pure gold to be able to easily find the parts and materials you need from the online database of components, where the majority of wireless network components that exist, available there. But the value of the database is not only about the number of components and the simplicity of using them within the network designs - there is more to its glory!
The iBwave Components Database also allows you to create your own parts and materials, customize existing ones, limit parts availability to approved ones only, and since it exists separate from the design software - is updated regularly as new parts are available, or as our customers add new parts are added via our support team.
Sounds good, eh? Let's go through all the above mentioned in a bit more detail.Read More
A Twitter post popped up in my news feed last week showing a graph of the attenuation values for different types of glass – mainly the distinction between a regular glass window and a low emissions (Low E) window. It was showing that Low E windows have a much higher attenuation value than regular windows—a fact that could impact prediction of a network significantly if the incorrect type of window is selected during modeling.Read More
Forever on a quest to improve the accuracy of network predictions in our software, we recently released a new feature called "Body Loss Modeling." With Body Loss Modeling, you can now account for the attenuation caused by bodies packed into a tight space together in your design - most useful for high-density venues like stadiums, arenas, or conference centers.Read More
Dense Network Architecture - Why is it Important Now and Why Should You Care?Read More
In this week’s Feature Spotlight blog I look at how to generate an automatic Design Plan with iBwave Wi-Fi.
Why is this feature such a useful one?
A few different reasons but ultimately, this feature does three things:
1) Gives you a single place to view and update your entire network design
2) Eliminates the need to do this manually in Visio or Excel
3) Eliminates the risk of human error when creating it manuallyRead More
