Wireless InSite's unique collection of features simplifies the analysis of even the most complex and massive propagation problems.
X3D Propagation Model
X3D is a 3D propagation model with no restrictions on geometry shape or transmitter/receiver height. This accurate model includes reflections, transmissions and diffractions along with atmospheric absorption. Supports frequencies up to 100 GHz.
Capture effects of scattering on complex impulse response and received power (including cross-polarization) for mmWave applications.
MIMO Beamforming & Spatial Multiplexing
The X3D model simulates MIMO antennas for 5G, WiFi and other technologies. Using detailed multipath, it applies MIMO techniques such as beamforming, spatial multiplexing, and diversity to predict key channel metrics for one or more MIMO data streams.
Communication Systems Analysis
The Communication Systems Analyzer calculates SINR, throughput, theoretical capacity, and bit error rate (BER), giving users the tools they need to visualize and assess device performance for systems with multiple base stations.
Fast Ray-Based Methods
2D site-specific propagation models designed for urban and rough terrain applications.
Empirical Propagation Models
Suite of empirical models designed for urban and indoor analysis.
Support for KMZ, COLLADA, SHP, and DXF formats for building and object import. The Geospatial Abstraction Library is used for terrain import in DTED, DEM, and TIFF formats.
Import simulated antennas from XFdtd or create textbook antennas for use in SISO, MIMO and Massive MIMO transmitter and receivers.
Electrical properties of the scene can be defined down to the facet level. An installed database of materials includes metal, earth, concrete, brick, wood, glass, etc. at various frequencies.
Users have quick access to outputs such as received power, propagation paths, path loss etc. These ASCII-based files can be plotted in the tool or easily post-processed externally.
Wireless InSite’s X3D Propagation Model automatically caches processed geometry for later use. This avoids geometry processing time when multiple concurrent or subsequent jobs are run with the same geometry. Wireless InSite monitors cache validity and indicates when the cache is available. This feature is especially useful for scenarios with large urban or rural geometry when multiple concurrent or sequential jobs are being run.
