Wi-Fi Network Design

The advent of bandwidth-hungry wireless apps such as large file transfer, HD video streaming, wireless display, and cellular data offload, highlight the impending need for larger bandwidth and super speed Wi-Fi links exceeding 1 Gb/s.

Wi-Fi use cases have evolved to go beyond wireless LAN for access to the Internet. The following use cases justify the need for multi-gigabit WiFi:

  • Sync Data/File Transfer
  • Wireless LAN and Backbone Networks
  • Small-Cell Backhaul Network
  • Multimedia Streaming over IP
  • Cellular Data Offloading

4G Unwired uses Atoll to enable designing, planning, and optimizing Wi-Fi networks based on the IEEE 802.11 WLAN standards. The software provides comprehensive Wi-Fi network modelling with coverage and capacity planning as well as multi-technology traffic modelling and analysis (e.g. HSPA/LTE/Wi-Fi).

Network Modeling

  • Support for IEEE 802.11a, 11g, 11n, 11ac, and 11ad standards
  • Support for standard, high throughput (HT), very high throughput (VHT), and directional multi-gigabit (DMG) configurations
  • Support for all Wi-Fi frequency bands and channels
  • Support for all Wi-Fi modulation and coding schemes
  • Support for MIMO including transmit/receive diversity, SU-MIMO, MU-MIMO, and adaptive MIMO switching (AMS)
  • Support for long and short guard intervals
