Remcom has integrated its X3D ray-tracing capabilities into EDX SignalPro 8.3. This helps users create 3D features of networking environments.
The X3D model from Remcom uses GPU (graphics processing unit) acceleration to greatly reduce calculation time. The model includes effects from reflections, diffractions and transmissions and serves a variety of service area environments including urban, indoor and indoor/outdoor. The X3D model is now available as an add-on product from EDX, allowing users to take advantage of these features in SignalPro projects.
“With the X3D model’s efficient ray tracing processing capabilities, users will be able to include more complex scene elements in their analyses without sacrificing run time,” said Ruth Silber Belmonte, product manager of Wireless InSite at Remcom. “X3D was developed to provide efficient and accurate predictions of propagation communication channel characteristics in complex environments.”
