BANGALORE, INDIA: Comsearch, a CommScope company, has made its powerful microwave network design and management tool more accessible by releasing iQ.linkXG Solo, a PC-based, single-user edition of its flagship microwave planning solution, iQ.linkXG Enterprise.
Like iQ.linkXG Enterprise, the iQ.linkXG Solo solution enables the rapid design and management of microwave links for backhaul or other fixed point-to-point and point-to-multipoint networks, while maximizing spectrum efficiency.
“Consultants, smaller wireless operators and OEM managed service providers need the same rich feature set of the iQ.linkXG Enterprise solution, but in an affordable package for smaller projects,” said Brian Eichenser, director of software products, Comsearch. “iQ.linkXG Solo offers the power they need at a price they can afford.”
The iQ.linkXG Solo software solution can help network planners build, maintain, or upgrade highly reliable microwave networks. Comsearch’s solution is designed to easily import data from other planning software, making the transition to iQ.linkXG Solo a seamless process.
“Low quality planning tools can lead to wasted spectrum, wasted time and increased equipment costs,” said Eichenser. “iQ.linkXG Solo enables users to plan high quality microwave networks right the first time, avoiding costly mistakes and optimizing the use of precious spectrum.”
Comsearch has seen demand continue to grow for analytical tools that can enable rapid and reliable deployment of expanding microwave networks. The company originally launched iQ.link in 1990, and it has since been responsible for the deployment of over three hundred thousand links worldwide.
Comsearch actively participates in International Telecommunication Union (ITU) study groups and maintains iQ.linkXG in accordance with the latest recommendations. iQ.linkXG supports the full range of microwave frequency bands for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint backhaul and fixed access in a broad range of wireless systems including Cellular, PCS, GSM, UMTS, TETRA, 3G, WiMax, LTE and more.
