There are numerous applications that require the assessment of point-to-multipoint links, such as SCADA systems, smart meters, field area networks, base-remote subscriber configurations, and more. If the multipoint locations are not yet known, a high-resolution RF area coverage study can predict coverage within a user-defined tolerance (i.e., grid step).
For a known list of sites or prospective sites, the site locations can be imported into TAP and used in a target-type study; this capability can also be used for drive test data to compare measured and predicted coverage. If specific site locations are not known, but coverage along features, such as roads, rails, rivers, pipelines, etc., is desired, TAP can automatically place study points along linear features for use in a target study.
For multipoint-to-multipoint evaluations, the Aggregate Coverage module can be used to determine overall coverage and best serving base stations.
The AutoPath module supports sequential analysis of groups of paths and a top-down view of the overall network.
