iBwave Public Safety: Wireless Network Design & Planning Software. iBwave Public Safety is a powerful network design and planning software for public safety wireless networks to manage the full planning and design lifecycle in a single solution.
PLAN, DESIGN AND PROPOSE PUBLIC SAFETY NETWORKS THAT BUILDING OWNERS AND AHJS WILL APPROVE
iBwave’s Public Safety solution is the established standard to design reliable Public Safety networks with proper documentation while saving time and costs. Our software makes it easy to design and simulate network performance for greenfield or existing buildings, and accelerates the approval process with building owners and AHJs by presenting detailed standardized documentation. iBwave has the tools, training and support so you can design Public Safety Networks we all can count on.
Without a doubt, iBwave spared us many hours of work. We not only built a network to support the 15,000 people that the stadium can accommodate but we also delivered it within record budget and timescales – within a third of the time when compared with conventional methods.- Peter Liseborg, Senior Net Planner for Telenor Denmark –

Design reliable networks for mission critical applications
Test the coverage and throughput of your network before it is deployed using our prediction engine proven and trusted by thousands of customers worldwide. Ensure your network’s availability by simulating traffic in critical and non-critical areas. Validate the performance compliance based on key requirements and prevent costly changes post installation.
- Fast Ray Tracing, COST 231 and VPLE (quick design) propagation
- Precise 3D coverage output maps (Downlink and Uplink RSSI, RSRP, AGC, Near-Far Effect)
- Signal quality and data rate output maps (SNIR, RSRQ, MADR)
- Smart Antenna Contouring to show live signal strength predictions
- Body loss modeling for highly dense venues (stadium, arena, etc.)
- LTE best server & hand-off matrix to optimize existing design for higher data rate
- PIM calculations and EMF calculation and analysis
- Compliance results based on user defined pass/fail criteria
- Donor Antenna isolation validation
- Critical/General Zone Identification
Deploy more sites faster and reduce your costs
Automate and simplify the design of your public safety networks to reduce your time to deployment. Eliminate the risk of over designing a network by modeling your venue in detailed 3D and simulating your network before it’s deployed to optimize hardware placement for the most cost-efficient design.
