EDX Wireless Expands Its Carrier-Class Ecosystem to Include WirelessLogix as the First WiMAX Drive Test Equipment Vendor

EDX's WiMAX Network Design Tools Will Automatically Integrate Drive Test Data Collected by WirelessLogix XCAL

EUGENE, OR--(Marketwire - December 13, 2007) - EDX Wireless has added WirelessLogix to its Vendor Partner Program as the first drive test manufacturer to join the EDX ecosystem. Under the terms of the partner agreement, the data collected by WirelessLogix' XCAL-X tool is able to be used in EDX SignalPro® directly, without any data conversion processes.

The smooth integration between the network planning tool and the data derived by the network drive test tool brings increased value to the engineering process. Direct access to this data saves time for RF engineers and makes the process more consistent and repeatable.

As part of the network planning process, EDX SignalPro uses the drive test data to provide a comparison of predicted versus measured coverage, as well as to automatically tune propagation models used to predict network performance. Further, the data can be used to determine the signal loss caused by clutter, such as trees, which can be unique to each market.

"EDX's WiMAX customers are pleased to see this integration with WirelessLogix," said Ted Hicks, Vice President of Product Management for EDX Wireless. "WirelessLogix has the first complete real-time WiMAX data collection tool and providing this integration is a natural addition to the ecosystem we're building to support our growing customer base."

"WirelessLogix is quite excited to expand its partnership with EDX in support of the WiMAX ecosystem," said Larry Smith, WirelessLogix COO. "Our customers are calling for an integrated solution that supports both WiMAX network design and optimization, and the partnership with EDX satisfies this request."

Current versions of EDX SignalPro and its modules have the integrated connectivity to WirelessLogix data, making the combined solution immediately available. Pricing is dependent on final configurations of each product.
