Tropospheric link analysis using HTZ

January 23, 2023

HTZ simulates and analyses the impact of tropospheric conditions on microwave communications. It provides accurate and reliable predictions of the behaviour of microwave signals in the troposphere using the ITU-R 617-5 propagation model.

The ITU-R P.617-5 propagation model is the industry standard for analysing and predicting performance across a network. The model accounts for factors like atmospheric conditions, terrain, and transmitting and receiving equipment characteristics, allowing the user to optimise the system for maximum efficiency and reliability. Users can customise the simulation parameters in the model to match the end user’s needs.

This function is used widely by researchers, engineers and network operators. It provides a user-friendly interface and intuitive controls to set up, analyse, and make informed decisions. HTZ supports advanced functions including multiple frequency bands, 3D terrain visualisation, and import/export function of data in various formats.

Join Pierre Coutey, Senior RF Engineer at the upcoming Spectrum Management Summit as he presents a live demo of this function. This two-day event is open to industry and runs on 14-15 February. Registration is required. To enrol, click here.
