Design Testing Tools

Hixxa Communications has developed an extensive array of advanced tools. The tools are used for design and engineering of wireless and microwave network, including site location, service area coverage prediction, frequency planning, interference prediction and digital microwave interconnect engineering.

testRF Propagation Tool
A fundamental task for a Radio network designer is to predict RF coverage by using “RF Propagation Tool” based on a set of proposed site parameters and system requirements that would help to determine whether the intended service objectives can be met. The characteristics of a propagating RF signal largely depends on the radio frequency, geographic terrain, foliage, buildings, and varying weather conditions.

tower1Intermodulation Calculator Tool
Intermodulation interference occurs when two or more transmitters, transmitting at different frequencies, are coupled, resulting in the mixing of signals. This results in the presence of additional frequencies, called intermodulation products, that are either sum or difference of the transmitted frequencies. If the products fall within the bandwidth of a receiver, intermodulation interference may occur.

tower2Microwave Path Profile Tool
A first step in microwave path design is positioning microwave antennas to form a line-of-site connection between two stations. Curvature of the earth, terrain elevation, buildings and trees must all be taken into consideration when planning the microwave link.
