WHAT'S NEW IN
iBWAVE DESIGN ENTERPRISE

Uplink Rx Power Output Map

  • A new output map representing the Mobile Tx power at transmitters is now available. Each element in the output map represents the received power at the optimal transmitter from the user at that location. A constant Mobile TX power value is used at each location. Using the path lost value, the received power at the transmitter is calculated.

Materials Updated For 6GHz Band

  • Materials updated to include conductivity and transmission loss properties from 5GHz to 8GHz, to improve the prediction accuracy on Wi-Fi 6E output maps.

VPLE Prediction on Outdoor Plans

  • You can now predict your network design for outdoor plans. Doing so will give you an approximate assessment of your network’s performance. This is ideal for areas such as parking lots, spaces in-between buildings, entrances, etc.

Digital BBU Signal Sources & Ports Configuration (Design Lite & Enterprise)

  • Digital Baseband Unit signal sources now support optical output ports directly at the source, eliminating the need for dummy RF-conversion ports. Connect OEM-defined Multi-RAT, Multi- Band BBU sources directly to CPRI cards or Remote Units to model more accurately fully digital C-RAN & D-RAN system architectures.
  • Baseband Unit signal sources now also benefit from an updated Source Configuration user interface, allowing you to configure dozens of sources in a few simple clicks from the Grid UI.

iBwave Mobile Survey   

WHAT'S NEW IN
iBWAVE MOBILE (PLANNER, SURVEY)

Mobile Picture Plans

  • Picture plans can now be imported from desktop or created new in Mobile. They show up in the plan list and can be added to the mobile report.

Annotation Selectivity for Report

  • When collecting annotations pictures in the field, you may take several pictures at a single location and select which will appear in the mobile report.

Undo/Redo as Floating Icons

  • Undo and Redo buttons are now floating icons on the bottom-left of the plan page. This allows the Context menu to be freed up for revealing additional functions.

Textbox and Shape Color-Fill

  • With 19.0, Textboxes and Shapes can be assigned a fill color. Now a variety of fill colors can be selected, allowing you to have more contrast on a busy plan.

Building Properties in Mobile Report

  • Building Properties appear in the Mobile Report and can be edited by clicking the 3-dots next to the Building Name in the Plans menu.

Default Plan Sizes in Mobile

  • When new plans are created on Mobile, the plan follows a more conventional 3:4 ratio. This allows plans to better fit the report page and fill the available white space.

MIMO Stream Options Added to LTE Output Map Configuration

  • With multiple source paths for MIMO configuration systems, you can choose from several available options to run predictions.

iBwave Reach   

WHAT'S NEW IN
iBWAVE REACH

iBwave Reach Menu in iBwave Design

  • Now you can benefit from improved integrations between your indoor (iBwave Design) and outdoor (iBwave Reach) designs. The new Reach menu ribbon provides quick access to the various functions enabled by iBwave Reach.

Campus Bill of Materials and Project Reports

  • You can now generate valuable project documentation for the entire campus design, including Equipment Lists, Cost Details, and EMF reports.

Import Outdoor Predictions

  • You can now seamlessly import outdoor predictions to enable ingress-egress analysis. Create a new Reach Outdoor Plan to automatically position your campus area and building polygons on the outdoor map. Once situated, instantly import geolocated outdoor sites, transmitters, and antennas from Reach onto the map with their respective parts from the components database to begin cabling and modeling the outdoor network.

iBwave FiberPass   

WHAT'S NEW IN
iBWAVE FIBERPASS

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.
