In the newest release of iBwave Wi-Fi a new feature was introduced called the ‘Quick Connection Tool’. And if you often do the cabling in your designs, this is a feature you’re going to appreciate.Read More
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
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
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
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
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
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
It took us some time but here is the final installment of our follow-up posts on this webinar. This one is all about industry-related questions posted during the webinar.Read More
