The best server tool allows you to quickly test for coverage against an existing network.
This is useful not just for Field Engineers but for Sales you can rapidly confirm if coverage is possible for a target customer without needing the technical knowledge needed to create the network.
To use best server you must already have several sites defined under a common network eg. 'MY NETWORK, Site A', 'MY NETWORK, Site B'. Then you can place the marker on the customer location, enter suitable receiver heights and gains for their CPE equipment and 'check' coverage.
Best server results
Results are represented as colour coded paths, matched to the rainbow colour schema. Each path is also listed in a short table beneath the form with the 'best' server at the top.
Each path can be selected to display a detailed path profile report. This is all done client side in real-time.
You can also enable consolidated coverage for the server(s) to display adjacent areas of interest also. Check the 'Show server(s) coverage' box before pressing the Check button and a two stage process will be run. First the links will be rendered followed by a mesh which will be dynamically produced at the server to show the total coverage offered by the 5 servers.
