Urban Networks

Urban WiFi, LTE, 5G planning

EMSlice is used to design urban wireless communication networks, and troubleshoot performance issues by the following steps:

  • Load into EMSlice the configuration of structures in your urban network, either from a data source (such as openstreetmap or a 3d model file), or manually.
  • Load into EMSlice what type of network you are interested in.
  • Load into EMSlice where you wish to place wireless access points or base stations.
  • EMSlice then runs a calculation to determine what signal power (RSSI) sent from the base stations will arrive at receivers at different places in the environment.
  • The received signal power is shown as a heatmap in the main window.

EMSlice can design WIFI or LTE networks with the standard frequencies of wifi, 4G, 5G specifications.

Urban Microcell

This is a wireless network RSSI heatmap generated for an urban network deployment plan.

Urban Propagation Mechanisms

Multiple propagation mechanisms must be considered in urban wireless networking & technology design, including multiple reflections & diffractions from building surfaces & edges as pictured above.

Scattering from building surfaces and other obstructions should also be considered for highly accurate modeling results.

Urban Macrocell Environment

EMSlice can work with far larger urban scenarios, incorporating buildings, roads, rail, tunnels, parks, trees, etc

Remote, Rural Environment

EMSlice can work with larger again areas, such as remote, rural locations where agricultural & mining operations require planning & network connectivity

3D Ray tracing in urban model

EMSlice can work with high detail 3d models for higher resolution environmental modelling
