The Best Server Analysis Tool enables you to identify which transmitter in a network is providing the best coverage for a given receiver location. This tool is useful when troubleshooting dead zones in your model and can help to identify which transmitters should be modified or relocated to improve coverage.
Sales teams can also use the Best Server feature to rapidly confirm if coverage is possible for a target customer without needing the technical knowledge for creating an entire network.
Note: You will need to already have a network of nearby transmitters defined in order to run a Best Server Analysis.

Accessing the Best Server Analysis
To access the Best Server Analysis tool, click on the badge icon in the bottom center of your web interface . You will see a number of additional controls appear in the left side panel :
Performing a Best Server Analysis
First, you'll want to place the transmitter icon on the map at the location of your customer/receiver . (You don't need to have any transmitting towers visible on the map.) Then select an existing network from the dropdown menu in the left panel .
You can optionally show the chosen network's towers and coverages by checking this box . (Be aware, showing the server coverage will prevent you from viewing the detailed path profile analysis for each server path.)
When you are ready, click on the Orange check button . If you did opt to show the server coverage, you may need to wait a bit longer for the coverage to populate:
Understanding Best Server Results
The results of a Best Server Analysis will list the closest site servers  along with their distance and Received Signal Strength Indicator levels. On the map, you'll be shown the straight-line paths from the receiver to each server . The server with the strongest RSSI will be first on the list . The connection color will vary based on the current colour schema :
If you did not show sever coverage, then you'll be able to click on the straight-line path  for each server connection to view the detailed path profile analysis. That way you can view the topological profile  between the server (on the left) and the receiver (on the right). You can learn more about the details of the Path Profile Analysis, here:
