CloudRF has a large database of 3D antenna pattern templates
(Azimuth and Elevation planes) which all users get free access to.
Using a pattern greatly enhances your planning accuracy as it simulates your hardware’s true radiation capability.
You can even upload your own pattern in ADF format. You can source these files from a hardware vendor like Telewave or Kathrein.
If you don’t have a pattern you can use the ‘custom pattern’ tool to build your own by defining beamwidths and gains.
We support these patterns:
Example ADF file
- Standard TIA/EIA Antenna Pattern Data .adf (PRIMARY)
- RadioMobile v2 .ant
- EDX .pat
