RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Novosibirsk, Russia - December 23, 2019 -
Center of Telecommunication Technologies is proud to announce
immediate availability of their
RadioPlanner 2.1 wireless network software
simulation tool for modeling microwave point-to-point (PtP) and point-to-multipoint
(PtMP) links. Perform frequency planning of radio networks considering co-channel
and adjacent channels interference, points calculation showing the profile of the
path, losses, and levels of the signal and interference on co-channel and adjacent
channels. You can import the measurement results of the received signal power levels
for comparison with calculated values and adjust propagation model parameters, and
save the result of the coverage calculation as an interactive web page or as a raster
image. Flexibly adjust the layers on the base map, show custom vector layers.
RadioPlanner 2.1 uses propagation models that include ITU-R P.1812-4 (for mobile
and broadcasting), Longley-Rice (ITM) v 1.2.2 (for broadcasting only, for mobile
coming soon), ITU-R P.1546-6 (for broadcasting only), and combined ITU-R P.528-3
+ P.526-14 model (for aeronautical radio only). The program performs various types
of area studies for mobile networks such as received power uplink/downlink, strongest
server (best server), C/I ratio, area with signal above, both base and mobile thresholds,
and number of servers above uplink.
The Single User price is an amazingly low
$499, or you can get a 1-year single user license for $199. Academic discounts are
CTT also offers their
MLinkPlanner 1.2 PtP and PtMP software
planning tool for microwave radio systems, as well as their free
Antenna Pattern Editor universal software
tool to view, create, edit and convert antenna patterns.
About Center of Telecommunication Technologies
Center of Telecommunication Technologies, LLC (CTT, LLC) www.ctt-group.ru Novosibirsk,
Russia is the developer of the MLinkPlanner and RadioPlanner software.
The company has been on market for more than 15 years, and all this time we have
been actively working in two directions - the design of radio communication networks
and the development of software for design. During our work, our specialists carried
out projects on more than 1000 microwave hops, more than 800 base stations of mobile
communication, more than 100 television and broadcasting transmitters. The customers
- are mobile operators Mobile TeleSystems PJSC, Megafon, Vimpelcom, Tele 2, oil
and gas production, processing and transportation companies, as well as broadcasting
Until recently, we offered software only in the Russian market. Many design organizations,
system integrators, telecom operators, TV and radio broadcasters, and government
agencies have been the licensed users of our software products.
Now we are pleased to offer you the program MLinkPlanner, which was developed
specifically for the global market. It is a convenient tool for designing point-to-point
and point-to-multipoint microwave links with all the necessary functionality.
