PROGIRA is consistently working to enhance the PROGIRA plan experience. So it is not surprising that we are releasing PROGIRA plan Version 7.2 sometime in the summer. PROGIRA plan users will expect, once again, a major upgrade with plenty of new features and enhancements. A big shout-out to all our PROGIRA plan users who have been giving us great feedback. We love them, as they help us be better! So please keep them coming!
Here’s a summary of what’s new:
New transmitter interface for a better overview of parameters in PROGIRA plan
The transmitter form has a new look for a better overview of the parameters. Function to create/delete a transmitter has moved to the lower left part.
Updated LTE module with E-UTRA frequency bands
We take care of the LTE planners out there too! Users have a setting for defining LTE frequency bands used in the project. This is needed to match the up- and downlink frequencies to the E-UTRA Absolute Radio Frequency Channel Number (EARFCN).
LTE Capacity Setup
This will be a much welcome feature for LTE planners our there, and we are seeing more and more of them. LTE Capacity calculations for different network loads can be visualized.
Antenna mask viewer – to verify that antenna design is within limits
Thanks to the feedback from our loyal customers, we are introducing a new antenna mask viewer which supports for antenna mask. With antenna masks, users can easily verify that their antenna design is within limits. We love this feature, and we hope you will too!
Major upgrades of the US FCC coordination procedure for ATSC 3.0
ATSC 3.0 planners out there are not left out. We have been kept busy making sure our users in the USA will enjoy an enhanced planning experience with PROGIRA plan. The antenna pattern synthesis feature can now be aborted. Antenna pattern synthesis is also now multithreaded. In other words, users will experience much faster calculations!
Users would be receiving their complete release notes from PROGIRA in their mailbox soon, so stay tuned! Contact us to learn more if you are not already a PROGIRA plan user. We love to hear from you!
