Meritech releases iSite with enhanced features that estimate VoWiFi call capacity. The application uses site survey data to calculate network coverage and interference levels. Based on the signal to noise ratio (SNR), iSite plots the estimated VoWiFi call capacity on a floor plan display. A color grid indicates areas of low capacity where adjustments should be made to improve network performance. Several voice codecs are supported including G.711, G.729, G723.1v, GSM and iLBC.
iSite also shows VoWiFi call capacity using predicted coverage and interference levels. Prediction is useful when a site survey is not practical. Prediction also lets users evaluate configuration scenarios before changes are made to the network thereby lowering the cost of network maintenance.
“WiFi has inherent limitations that can result in restricted capacity and poor voice quality if the network is not designed properly. iSite is an essential tool that helps ensure the network is VoWiFi capable,“ said Brett Maurer, Director of Engineering at Meritech.
Other features in this iSite release include antenna patterns and reports. Antenna patterns are used to model the propagation characteristics of directional antennas often used for indoor wireless networks. Reports produce quick output of useful network information that can be saved to PDF, DOC, XLS and other file formats.
