Introduction to Propagation Manager (ProMan)

Predict path loss between transmitter and receiver with ProMan. Perform network planning including the wireless standards (the air interfaces) and including multiple transmitters/receivers (multiple base stations).

The ProMan software package is designed to predict the path loss accurately between transmitter and receiver including all important parameters of the mobile radio channel. Propagation models for rural, urban, and indoor scenarios are available as well as the unique CNP mode for hybrid scenarios. Terrestrial, as well as satellite transmitters, can be considered.

The ProMan software also offers network planning modules for 2G/2.5G, 3G/B3G, WLAN, WiMAX networks and more. Static network planning modules, as well as dynamic network simulators, are included. Besides these cellular network planning features, ProMan also supports the planning of broadcasting networks (terrestrial and satellite).
