TruNet, is a 3D wireless network planning simulator based on the 3DTruEM physics EM engine developed by Sigint. The success story of TruNET resulted into the establishment of spin of company Fractal Networks, which currently owns the IPR rights of the commercialized version. The simulator’s standard output provides magnitude and phase information, Power Delay Profiles (PDP), Angle of Arrival (AoA), Angle of Departure (AoD) information, SNR, SNIR and C/I information. The simulator’s core functionality is further extended through a number of communication modules and connectors. Examples of these modules and connectors include MIMO modules, NS2/Matlab connectors for supporting higher layer simulations, WiFi/WiMAX modules, localisation modules that allow the creation of fingerprinting databases and their performance evaluation, Jammer modules, Emulator Modules, Geolocation database Modules for TV White Spaces network design etc.
TruNet’s main design environment includes an intuitive CAD and antenna designer which allows the user to quickly design and configure the wireless network under investigation.
