Volcano propagation model
The market leading propagation model, used by
operators and equipment vendors worldwide, to design any
wireless network, including 5G, in any environment and
frequency band, including millimeter wave.
Based on our 25 years’ experience in geodata production and radio engineering, Volcano is the leading propagation model combining unrivaled accuracy at the best computation speed, with recognized robustness and reliability to cope with operational environments.
Providing enhanced vegetation discrimination, Volcano delivers an unrivalled
level of details regarding foliage representation, thus enabling users to obtain highly accurate and
realistic propagation under, through and above tree branches and foliage.
With this innovative feature, users can easily and precisely, establish cost-effective, optimized designs around small cell
locations, heights on poles, types and numbers of antennas required and more.
In addition to advanced vegetation discrimination, Volcano has substantially improved modeling
computation time by more than 50% and, in some cases, by more than 80%, compared to previous
versions. With this new optimized ray tracing computation method, users
benefit from much faster propagation modeling, particularly in large calculations and complex
multi path environments.
Every step of the way, Volcano makes your network design simple, transparent, accurate, fast, time and cost saving.
