Link Calculator 2.0 BETA - Feedback

Recommended Posts


1. COVERAGE CALCULATION ACCURACY is limited by the quality of the map data used. Link Calculator 2.0 BETA uses FREE map data (SRTM) that are LESS ACCURATE around WATER BODIES, like rivers and lakes. Please keep that in mind while using the calculator, it's a freeware tool to provide you a ROUGH idea about the coverage. For more precision, you have to use a paid service such as Tower Coverage or similar.

2. MISSING CPEs - some of the major radio manufacturers, like Ubiquiti or MikroTik is not interested to cooperate with us. Thus we could not add most of their CPEs into the drop down menu. For these cases, please select the Generic 802.11ac or Generic 802.11n radio.

Please add MikroTik SXTsq 5 ac to the CPEs. Thank you!

Honza, unfortunately MikroTik is another manufacturer that is not cooperating with us - the data in the datasheet is not enough and they wouldn't give us what we need. The option you have is to use 'generic 802.11ac'.

When you download the PDF it does not show the color field MCS like it does on the non-pdf screen. That would be nice. 

Hi John. It's technically rather complicated thing to do, despite it seems trivial. But when we do bigger future updates, we'll definitely look into it. Thanks for the tip.

Good Day


i like the  calculator but as you select the antenna why not add option to add the different radio types as well with an export to google earth with the indication where the antenna radius goes and cover for an example ubnt link calculator offers that experience but is limited to only there products

Hi Danny, thanks for the feedback, we're constantly collecting it and will consider it in future iterations! 

What do you mean by antenna radius? The distance an antenna can reach is determined by multiple variables and the result is always an information what signal strength (or MCS) you can work with, so the radius other manufacturers show is largely misleading and confusing.
