EM.CUBE's Propagation.module is a physics-based site specific wave propagation modeling tool. It enables wireless engineers to quickly determine how radio waves propagate in urban or natural environments. EMAGWARE has refined and transformed the functionality of its older EMTerrano product into EM.CUBE's new propagation.module with a host of new features including extensive indoor propagation capability.

The rapid growth of wireless communications along with the high costs associated with deployment of effective wireless infrastructures have created an urgent need for computer aided communications network planning tools. Wireless engineers often use measurement-driven, statistical prediction models that exhibit considerable errors especially in areas having mixed building sizes. Advanced ray tracing solutions like EM.CUBE's, on the other hand, find the dominant propagation paths specific to the site under study. These methods model the physical channel and the mechanisms by which radio signals propagate from transmitters to receivers. EM.CUBE's propagation.module calculates the true signal characteristics at the actual site locations using databases of buildings and terrain, not those of an average or representative environment.
