LINKPlanner v4.7.2 Now Available

A new release of the LINKPlanner is available from

The key features of V4.7.2 are:

New or changed features

  • PMP 450m
    • Support for Rel 15.1.3
      • new bandwidths 30 and 40 MHz (excluding FCC 5.1, 5.2 and 5.4 GHz)
      • new frame size 5 ms for 5, 10, 15 and 20 MHz bandwidths
      • new 2.5 G SFP module

The 40 MHz bandwidth has the capability to exceed 1 Gbps for Downlink Data values above 65% in these cases it will automatically add the 2.5 G SFP to the Bill of Materials.

    • Updated Grouping algorithm to the same as the product

This change increases the predicted throughput rate. It also improves the prediction for Sectors with only a few subscribers.

    • Added Flood Test report when in DL MU-MIMO mode

This report is selected in the Performance Summary section when Downlink Mu-MIMO is selected. The report shows the predicted grouping in a similar manner to that shown on the product when a Flood Test to all users is carried out and also shows the predicted total throughput for comparison to the measured Flood Test result.

  • cnReach
    • Add 220 MHz for FCC Part 80
    • Corrected centre frequency to use mid-point of Band Start and Stop in ISM mode
  • ePMP
    • Added new Canadian specific parts
    • Added ability to select different ePMP products at each end of a PTP link

This will allow a PTP link to be created between different ePMP products, for example a Force 180 at one end of a link to a Force 200 at the other end of a link. Please note that if the product at either end of the link only has a Fast Ethernet port the data rate in both directions will be limited.


    • Obsolete 5 GHz integrated radio without sync
  • PTP 820
    • Added 8 GHz ETSI with 310 MHz T/R spacing
    • Updated 7 GHz RFU-A Branching drawer part numbers
    • Added REMEC Adaptor Kits
  • PTP 550
    • Increased maximum range to 200 km

Bug Fixes

  • Corrected modulation mode issue when using different PTP 700 products
  • Corrected modeled beamwidth when using omni antennas

LINKPlanner was not defaulting to 360° or saving the value once changed.

  • Updated PTP 820 modulation mode descriptions for 1024 QAM in 80 MHz bandwidth with narrow radios
  • Corrected error when changing from PTP 820 to PTP 810
  • Added Predicted Receive Level to cnReach Installation reports
