Cambium Networks LINKPlanner
Easy, Accurate LINKPlanner Tool
Predictable performance, Shorter installation time
Wireless network operators are constantly looking at how to reduce the total cost of ownership of the network in order to increase their return on investment. Keeping costs down starts with selecting the right equipment with the correct configuration for the desired performance and reliability. Cambium has developed the LINKPlanner tool to simplify the design of these networks whether they are point-to-point or point-to-multipoint. By designing the network with predictable performance up-front the cost of procurement, installation, configuration and on-going support can be minimized.
Optimize for Your Needs
Designed for use with our point-to-point and point-to-multipoint solutions, LINKPlanner allows you to easily and quickly design networks for optimal deployment and cost effectiveness. With versions for Microsoft Windows and Intel-based Mac systems, LINKPlanner is a free, easy to use link-design tool that can be downloaded from our web site.

LinkPlanner In Action
The first step in link design is to enter information about the sites you want to connect. The recommended method to insert sites into a project is to import the latitude and longitude information from sources such as Google Earth.
LINKPlanner then automatically imports a path profile to which the user can add additional obstructions to accurately model the environment.
By modifying system characteristics such as antenna type and height, you can obtain the optimal configuration to achieve the performance you need to meet your throughput and availability requirements. In addition to throughput and availability, you will also see projected system gain margin and path loss for the link.
