Radio planning tool for microwave point-to-point (PtP) and point-to-multipoint (PtMP) links.

MLinkPlanner 2.0 Wireless Planning Software - RF CafeNovosibirsk, Russia - June 15, 2020 - Center of Telecommunication Technologies is proud to announce immediate availability of their MLinkPlanner 2.0 wireless network software simulation tool for modeling microwave point-to-point (PtP) and point-to-multipoint (PtMP) links. The new version is free for current MLinkPlanner users.

MLinkPlanner is a powerful and user-friendly tool for designing microwave point-to-point (PtP) and point-to-multipoint (PtMP) links.

MLinkPlanner was created by engineers with many years of experience in designing microwave links, from single hop access links to high-power long-haul trunk lines. MLinkPlanner has demonstrated its effectiveness in designing many links that are operating successfully in various climate zones and topographical conditions from plains and marshlands to highlands.

Special focus was placed on devising a convenient user interface, the incorporation of adaptable and easy to use link path profiles in the design process, and the automation of all key calculations.


Accurate PtP and PtMP Link Performance Analysis

  • ​Multipath fading prediction (Rec. ITU-R P.530-17 method; Vigants-Barnet method)
  • Rain attenuation (Rec. ITU-R P.530-17 method; Crane method)
  • Diversity improvement (frequency, space, and quad diversity)
  • Co-channel operation
  • Error performance and availability (Rec. ITU-R F.1668, Rec. ITU-R F.1703)

Coverage Study for Point-to-Multipoint Networks

Different coverage study for PtMP systems:

  • - Received Power Studies at subscriber stations
  • Best Server
  • Carrier-to-interference+noise ratio C/(I+N) at subscriber stations

Comparison of the two coverage

Full-Featured Microwave Path Profile Analysis

  • ​Antenna height optimization for different clearance criteria
  • Reflection analysis
  • Diffraction loss analysis (Rec. ITU-R P.526-15 Complete Bullington method; Rec. ITU-R P.526-15 Diffraction over multiple cylinders method; Deygout principle method with correction ITU-R-P.526-11; Epstein-Peterson method)
  • Accounting for attenuation in vegetation (Rec. ITU-R P.833-9)

A Large Set of Equipment Specifications

  • ​The user has access to a large set of equipment specification files supplied with the software.
  • Built-in editor for preparing specification files from datasheets.
  • Support for any equipment configuration (adaptive modulation; space and frequency diversity techniques; co-channel).

Advanced GIS Features

​Fully automatic generation of path profile based on:

  • Terrain elevation 1 arc sec (about 30 m)
  • Tree cover 1 arc sec (about 30 m) resolution data with tree canopy height information
  • 3D buildings data from OpenStreetMap project

All of these types of geodata are automatically downloaded to the required area as needed; there is no need to worry about preloading the geodata.

Use of various standard base maps (such as OpenStreetMap, OpenTopoMap, etc.) as well as custom ones.

Various Reports

  • ​Short, full and various summary link reports
  • Save the result of the coverage calculation as an interactive web page, as a raster image, or as a KMZ file. - Report with integrated graphics
  • map and path profile

The reports can be printed or saved in the formats PDF, Microsoft Word, or Excel.



The Single User price is an amazingly low $499, or you can get a 1-year single user license for $199. Academic discounts are available.

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.

    Kirt Blattenberger,


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 tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
