iBwave Design R9

User Interface Updates

An all-new modern and intuitive user interface is here with an intuitive workflow and menu structure following the phases of an in-building network design project.
 
The result? Accelerate your day-to-day use of the software.

User Interface Updates
 

 

Automatic Cable Alignment

Model cable trays in iBwave Wi‑Fi® Mobile or iBwave Wi‑Fi® and then take advantage of the new automatic cable alignment feature that will automatically snap your cable to the trays along the cable route.
 
The result? Save hours of time when routing cable and never worry about the alignment accuracy again.

4X4 MIMO, CBRS & LTE-A Improvements

  • Take advantage of the new 4x4 MIMO support and LTE-A Improvements
  • Take advantage of LTE standard on 3.5 GHz

4X4 MIMI & LTE-A Improvements
 

 

Multi-Radio APs

Design high‑density venue networks using our new Dual 5GHz radio access points from Aerohive, Cisco, Xirrus and more.
 
The result? Improve the accuracy of your predictions and bill of materials for high‑density network designs.

Software Selectable Radios
 

 

Prediction Exclusion Zones

Exclude areas from the prediction calculations so you focus only on the areas that are intended to receive coverage.
 
The result? Better accuracy with the compliance reports and more meaningful output maps.

Prediction Exclusion Zones
 

 

Reset Part IDs

Reset the part IDs of your design plan so the order of the parts are in a logical order for the installation team.

Reset Part IDs
 

 

Smart Antenna Contouring

View live signal prediction results on-screen as you place radios.
 
The result? Save significant amounts of time by not having to run the prediction engine multiple times while designing.
