Remcom (State College, PA) introduces a new version of Wireless InSite®, its suite of ray-tracing models and 2D field solvers for the analysis of site-specific radio propagation and wireless communication systems. Release 2.6 includes performance enhancements and new modeling capabilities. Most notable are the introduction of the X3D Ray Model with multi-threading and XStream® GPU acceleration, as well as the extension of XStream technology to the Moving Window FDTD (MWFDTD) model.

New modeling capabilities include complex antennas in MWFDTD, Data Throughput Toolbox for WiMAX and LTE, ground bounce effects added to Wireless InSite Real Time, and exact path correction in X3D Ray Model, providing speed of SBR but geometric accuracy of image theory. Also included are atmospheric absorption in X3D Ray Model, extending to 100 GHz, and new post-processing of multiple transmitter results.

There are three versions of Wireless InSite 2.6 to meet varying needs. The Standard version provides detailed estimates and characteristics of the signal and channel. It includes options for detailed urban (indoor and outdoor) and longer-range propagation over rough terrain. The Real Time version balances fidelity and speed, providing estimates at a fraction of the run time (calculates point-to-point links in less than a millisecond). The Professional version bundles Wireless InSite Standard with Real Time.
