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
These days wireless technology is evolving at an exponential rate. New tech trends and gadgets enter the wireless market all the time.

It’s all about more and faster mobile data!
For the past decade, a mobile carrier’s prime focus has been on cellular coverage improvements to provide traditional mobile services to their subscribers - i.e., voice, SMS, and data services - anywhere, anytime. As 80% of mobile sessions happen indoors, there has been a major push for massive deployments of active/passive DAS systems inside major venues like airports, stadiums, enterprise campuses and hospitality venues since the early 2010s.Read More

Which antenna type is best for certain Wi-Fi environments?
As much as antenna placement is vital for the wireless network performance, so is the type of antenna used for the type of environment you're designing within.
There are tons of materials on antennas 'out there' and with Google, a couple of fingers and some spare time you can become a real antenna guru. But as we live in a crazy and fast-paced world not everyone has time for research. So we decided to help you to shortcut your way in choosing the right antenna!Read More
