EDX Wireless releases version 8.0 of SignalPro with enhanced functionality for Point-to-Multipoint Networks

August 13, 2012 – EDX Wireless, a leading provider of Wireless Network design
tools, announces the release of EDX® SignalPro® v8.0, its flagship wireless network design and
optimization software. This new release enhances the Point to Multipoint (PtMP) planning capabilities
within SignalPro and contains many new features available as an inline upgrade for the entire EDX range
of products.

“Version 8.0 of SignalPro has been designed with the needs of increasingly complex Broadband Wireless
Access (BWA), Machine to Machine (M2M) and backhaul deployments in mind. Looking forward, we
see this release as a critical step in supporting the automation of small cell deployments as they
emerge", said Mark Chapman, CEO of EDX. “We are pleased to be able to offer this level of wireless
network analysis and design automation to our customers which will greatly simplify the design and
optimization of large and integrated networks.”

SignalPro v8.0 supports native 64 bit operation, improving its ability to rapidly process data for large
projects, as is common in existing Smart Grid and emerging small cell systems. Moreover, the enhanced
PtMP design and analysis capability can be used in largescale BWA, M2M and integrated backhaul
design. Building on previous releases, v8.0 supports an extensive range of study types permitting
analysis of multipoint system links using virtually any type of technology. The Automatic Frequency
Planning assignment mode (available with SignalPro + Network Design Module) coordinates CPE channel
and server assignments by considering a comprehensive and programmable set of system constraints;
ensuring an optimal channel plan. Meanwhile, the Automated Site Selection utility further simplifies
project design by selecting hub sites and CPE’s from a candidate list based on an RF optimized site
selection algorithm. This is useful not only for designing systems with known candidates, but also for
initial estimates, presales analysis and RFP responses.

In addition, this latest release of SignalPro contains a fully programmable query function and statistical
analysis utility, offering displays of key statistics and study results.
