October 4, 2011 – EDX Wireless, a leading provider of RF planning tools, announced the release of EDX® SignalPro® v7.4.2 This maintenance release of SignalPro also contains many new feature and capabilities, all available as an in line upgrade for the entire EDX SignalPro family products.

“Version 7.4.2 of SignalPro is the second release this year and delivers significant new functionality to our existing and new customers", said Steve Webster, Director of Product Management at EDX.. “We are particularly pleased to be able to offer such a significantly expanded range of options for the Smart Grid and Public Safety markets so quickly after the last release, meeting our customers evolving needs and requests.”

Among many new capabilities, SignalPro V7.4.2 contains many improvements to the overall workflow and usability of the application. New helpful features have been added to streamline complex processes which are now easily accessible with a quick context sensitive menu.

In particular, Multipoint Studies have been redesigned to greatly simplify operation and allow rapid creation of basic multipoint studies when the Network Design Module is installed without compromising the full flexibility of the Multipoint planning utility. This new ‘Basic” option limits the possible studies to those which do not involve channel planning or interference calculations, allowing basic forward and reverse multipoint basic link calculations to be run without having to assign channels to the links first.
