Now you can make a coverage prediction for a Wi-Fi city-scale network taking into account the characteristics of the propagation environment along the streets and buildings parameters. This feature allows you to design outdoor Wi-Fi networks with public access on a city scale, large-scale corporate outdoor Wi-Fi networks, Smart City networks, and so on.
The coverage prediction is based on the combined propagation model ITU-R P.1238-11 + Diffraction. The Bullington model is adopted as the diffraction model.
This combined propagation model takes into account the following factors:
- Outdoor signal attenuation according to the selected outdoor environment
- Indoor signal attenuation according to indoor propagation environment for buildings
- Power loss when the signal penetrates inside buildings
- Diffraction loss on terrain roughness
- Building heights
There is an outdoor Wi-Fi project sample based on Ubiquiti Unifi UWB-XG outdoor access points among the project file samples.
