EDX Wireless has released SignalPro v8.0, an upgraded version of its flagship wireless network design and optimization software solution. The suite is designed to rapidly process data for large projects, such as in smart grid applications.

The solution's enhanced point-to-multipoint design and analysis capability can be used in large-scale broadband wireless access, machine-to-machine and integrated backhaul design. Building on previous releases, EDX says v8.0 supports an extensive range of study types permitting analysis of multipoint system links using virtually any type of technology.

SignalPro v.8.0 also features an Automatic Frequency Planning assignment mode (available with SignalPro + Network Design Module), which coordinates CPE channel and server assignments by considering a programmable set of system constraints.

Meanwhile, the Automated Site Selection utility further simplifies project design by selecting hub sites and CPEs from a candidate list based on an RF optimized site selection algorithm. This is useful not only for designing systems with known candidates, but also for initial estimates and presales analysis, the company adds.

In addition, this latest release of SignalPro contains a fully programmable query function and statistical analysis utility, offering displays of key statistics and study results.
