iBwave launches Release 9 of its in-building wireless network design package

iBwave Solutions has announced the launch of the latest versions of its in-building wireless network design solution, iBwave Release 9, which includes updates for iBwave Wi-Fi, iBwave Design and iBwave Unity.

The latest release of iBwave Wi-Fi aims to bring better carrier‑grade Wi‑Fi to the enterprise market. Designing Wi‑Fi networks for high density venues and dealing with capacity issues is currently a big challenge. iBwave claims that the new iBwave Wi‑Fi® “will improve capacity optimisation and design accuracy for high‑density venues and save hours of time on projects”. Its new features include support for multi‑radio APs, smart antenna contouring to view live prediction results and automatic cable alignment.

“The ability to design and visualise Wi‑Fi networks in 3D is a unique iBwave feature that I have come to rely on for access point placement and troubleshooting. The granularity iBwave provides is exceptional, especially with the new capability to design with multi‑radio APs that are unique to Riverbed Xirrus for supporting high density Wi‑Fi networks. Add to that the variety of reports you can generate makes iBwave invaluable for Wi‑Fi deployment” – Ty Parker, director solutions engineering for Riverbed Technology.

Intended for carriers looking deploy converged networks that use multiple technologies in a single in-building project, iBwave Design 9 can integrate the designs for the various networks into a single design and supports DAS, small cells, Wi-Fi, LoRa, Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) and public safety indoor networks. iBwave claims that the tool’s new UI enables “quicker and more accurate designs, enhanced automation and multi‑technology support such as LTE‑A and CBRS support”.
