LINKPlanner v5.1.0 Now Available

A new release of the LINKPlanner is available from

Both the Windows and Mac versions of this release are now Cambium signed executables.

Please remember that if you are upgrading from a V4.x.x release to a V5.x.x release that this moves from 32 bit to 64 bit and it is recommended that you install the V5.x.x release under the Program Files directory and NOT under Program Files (x86), which will be the default.

The key features of 5.1.0 are:

New or changed features

  • PTP 820
    • Addition of PTP 820E in the 80 GHz band
    • Added 7 GHz FCC band to PTP 820C HP and PTP 820F RFU-D-HP
    • Added warranties for PTP 820F
  • ePMP
    • Add ePMP 3000L, Force 300-CSM and Force 130

These products are only available in the 5 GHz band and please note that the Force 300-CSM and Force 130 are not supported in United States, Canada and associated FCC countries.

  • PMP 450 family
    • Added notification of pending End of Life for PTP 450 and PMP 450 SM
    • PMP 450b SM changed to use the new parts which can be used for either PTP or PMP
  • General
    • Warranties – updated default warranties in line with changes to warranty options
    • Changed the best server to process in batches and report high level results at the end of each batch to show progress when analysing large projects and reduce “Not responding” issues.
    • Discontinued RF Elements SH horn antennas and added similar HG3 horn antennas
    • Added a “Highlight AP” function to the offline map which when selected will grey out all other APs and associated SMs to allow focus on the SMs connected to the selected AP.

Select the new icon, shown in the red box above and then select the AP that you want to highlight, remember that you can use the up and down arrow keys to toggle between overlapping APs to select the one that you require. Click outside the AP coverage area to return the screen to normal but leaving the highlighter enabled or click on the pointer option on the toolbar to disable the highlight function.

  • Added missing power cord in PMP 450i AP BOM

  • Improved Options dialog label formatting

Thanks Dave very much appreciated. :-)

It's only because of the exclsions between 4.9.1 and 5.1.0 otherwise i'd just make the clean jump



So I know that the F300 CSM and F130 isn't available for US/FCC land... but the 3000L is... and even when I set the regulatory zone to 'Other' I can't find any of these new radios using 5.1.0. What's up with that?

We prioritized PMP over PTP.

What do you think? Did we get it wrong? Would you have preferred to have PTP first?

You won't be able to model Force 300 CSM or Force 130 as PTP links in the next release. We're trying to get them into the release after next.

Thanks for your feedback!
