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:
  • Standard TIA/EIA Antenna Pattern Data .adf (PRIMARY)
  • RadioMobile v2 .ant
  • EDX .pat
