In-Building Design Tool on the Market

iBwave, a worldwide provider of in-building wireless design software, and UK-based Red-M, an independent wireless network solution and services provider, announced today a strategic partnership to integrate the companies’ complementary flagship products. The partnership merges Red-M’s in-building prediction engine, Red-Predict with iBwave’s RF-vu software in a fall 2006 product release to create the most complete in-building wireless design tool on the market. The combined software will be the only vendor-neutral end-to-end solution for engineers to design, manage, maintain and accurately predict wireless in-building networks.

iBwave’s President, Mario Bouchard comments, “Our partnership with Red-M and their expertise in prediction solidifies our strategy to provide the in-building industry with the most comprehensive software tool for in-building design. Red-M is an established thought-leader through its prediction software in the in-building wireless marketplace. Its European headquarters tied with iBwave’s international presence, creates a worldwide reach to better service our combined customers.”

Red-M’s prediction capability added to the already feature-rich RF-vu software brings:

  • Improved accuracy: using patented prediction technology (MbPTM)

  • Simplified data entry using standard measurement tools: no need to guess wall properties

  • Wide range of applications: 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, PMR and more

  • Appropriate for: picocells, passive, active or hybrid distributed antenna systems

  • Calculations in 3D and more

The result is one tool that optimizes design productivity and consistency to create a rapid Return on Investment (ROI).

Red-M’s patented, Measurement-based Prediction (MbP) technology was developed by Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Simon Saunders after many validated studies on wireless propagation behavior inside buildings. Red-Predict has embedded this technology and been proven in hundreds of challenging real-world deployments. Red-M’s CEO, David Richmond further states, "The partnership with iBwave demonstrates the true complementary nature of both companies’ offerings; prediction and planning simply go together. Red-M’s prediction capability embedded into iBwave’s RF-vu design and planning software bridges an in-building industry design divide with a complete solution.”
