ComSiteDesign (CSD) is a technology versatile, comprehensive

and user-friendly wireless network engineering software tool. It is easy to use yet thorough in its unique approach to systems design and analysis. CSD is designed to maximize compatibility with standard Microsoft Office applications such as MS Word, MS Excel, MS Access and MS MapPoint, offering one of the most sought-after IT solutions for the Public Safety, Utilities, Cellular/PCS, Wireless Internet Service Provider (ISP) and Site Management industries. Radio, field and wireless network engineers in conjunction have developed CSD with system planners and strategic marketing personnel to address aspects of their individual business processes for each of the aforementioned industries. With that goal in mind, CSD is capable of providing: External site database import, Frequency plan import functionality, Connectivity to FCC license records, High quality mapping, Google Earth Compatibility Microsoft Word compatible reports, Adobe Acrobat .pdf output files, ESRI ArcView desktop GIS compatibility, Measurement data import and display, Propagation model calibration (tuning), Regulatory agency frequency/site database import, Path profile viewer with terrain and clutter display, Microwave point to point/point to multipoint module, Antenna heights optimizer, Optimal Site Combination, Base station, mobile and hand-held equipment databases, Available antenna site/tower locator, Nearest airport locator (for airport authority coordination), AM Tower locator (for broadcast station coordination), Automatic frequency planning Interface to intermodulation analysis tool, Interface to transmitter noise/receiver desensitization, Unlimited number of sites and antenna systems, Imbedded regulatory authority frequency plans/tables, Multi-technology, multiple sector based planning, Sector based propagation modeling,

WIRELESS TECHNOLOGIES SUPPORTED IN CSD CSD is suited to analyze and plan a variety of systems ranging in frequency from 1 MHz to 450 GHz. Each of the various system types may coexist on the same support structure, but analyzed independently of each other without creating separate project files. The user decides which technologies to evaluate by simply selecting with which subscriber or field unit type base stations will communicate. Examples of the wireless network technologies supported by ComSiteDesign include but are not limited to: Terrain Relief Display Trunking: APCO P25, OpenSky, TETRA, EDACS, ASTRO, MPT1327, MultiNet, SmartZone, iDEN GSM, DCS1800, PCS1900, iDEN, CDMA IS-95, UMTS / WCDMA, CDMA2000 Analog and Digital Systems OpenSky, Motobridge
