iBWAVE DESIGN ENTERPRISE

Edge Calculations

  • An entirely new calculation engine has been developed with performance optimization at the heart of it. While not capable of yet fully replacing the existing Design calculation engine it can be utilized for the specific use case of designing from the remote by assuming full power allocation and respecting power sharing configuration and running predictions and reports without the head-end equipment.
  • All in all, this new engine will enable more a more responsive application when working on large designs, more efficient workflows by designing from the edge and enabling quick designs for the purposes of quoting.

Wi-Fi 6E

  • Support for Wi-Fi 6E is here! The band 6 GHz with 802.11ax technology is now available. You can now design and run predictive maps for Wi-Fi 6E networks.
  • Note: Wi-Fi 6E is excluded from the following at this point in time: Surveys, 3rd party collection (IBWC) and AP auto channel assignment.

Ports Configuration for Multi-Radio Signal Sources

Improving on the existing Generic Multi-Radio signal source, you can now have full flexibility to configure the ports when creating this component.

  • Set the number of available ports
  • Choose between digital and analog ports, as well as their respective connector types
  • Choose simplex or duplex fiber connectors (# of strands)
  • Choose to assign ports per system, per block, or per individual MIMO path

iBwave Mobile Survey

iBWAVE MOBILE (SURVEY, PLANNER)

Data Collection for Standalone 5G Network

  • You can now survey stand-alone (SA) 5G networks using iBwave Mobile Survey. Device must have a valid sim card and be connected to a SA 5G network. With it you can collect SS-RSRP, SS-RSRQ and SS-SINR. If device is on a non-standalone (NSA) 5G network, it will be collected as LTE data.

Survey Compliance Criteria for P25, TETRA, DMR

  • You can add compliance criteria to P25, TETRA and DMR Surveys. You can enable and configure criteria in the project properties.

Save All Projects to Device

  • You can now save all your projects at the same time to your device.

Multi-Select Extension to Parts and Routes

  • With this release you can now multi-select parts and routes in addition to the modeling and mark-up objects you can already multi-select.

Expandable Canvas

  • The white-space canvas on your mobile floorplans and outdoor plans can now be manually adjusted to create more plan space for design expansion or additional notes.

Wi-Fi 6E

  • Support for Wi-Fi 6E is here! The band 6 GHz with 802.11ax technology is now available. You can now design and run predictive maps for Wi-Fi 6E networks.
  • Note: Wi-Fi 6E is excluded from the following at this point in time: Surveys, 3rd party collection (IBWC) and AP auto channel assignment.

5G Output Maps (CBRS Version)

  • You can now design 5G private networks and run predictive maps on the CBRS band. For a full list of output maps please refer to the full release notes available in My iBwave.

Component Groups for Cables

  • Component group assignment can now be made for cables. Component groups are most often used to attribute design objects to current, future, or existing phases of a project. For example, with Equipment Reports, “Future Phase” groups can now be filtered out or grouped separately as they would not be required for costing/material purposes.

Riser Zones

  • With the 17.0 release, additional automation was added to the Riser Design view in Mobile. Those features are now available when importing the Mobile FiberPass file into Desktop.

This includes:

Fixed Riser Zones

  • In previous versions, the building layout in the Riser View would be sized to fit the page. This often resulted in misshapen floor/riser zones as the application stretched/shrunk to fit. Now, Riser Zones are of fixed dimensions. This makes layout and object positioning more predictable and the resulting graphic more representative of the actual building.

Floor and Riser Labels

  • Floor and Riser labels have been adjusted so that they are properly positioned on the building layout.

Unit Range Labels

  • The Mobile enhancement to the Riser Design workflow included a virtual unit configuration. Instead of having to place all the units on the floorplan to account for them in the Living Unit list, the user can assign the Range simply from the Unit Configurator in the Riser Diagram. In Desktop, this Unit Range now appears in the Riser View as label inside of the Riser Zone.

Save/Load Template Reports to/from Unity

  • You can now upload your iBwave custom report templates to Unity when saving a "New Server Template" project.
