SignalPro High Level Architecture


SignalPro is a desktop application that can be installed in many different scenarios as required by the end user such as:

  • Virtual Machines

  • Central Shared Servers

  • Remote Desktops

See article for more information regarding Vm


SignalPro is a file-based application, storing data in a file system to run various module studies and algorithms.

This creates an optimal ecosystem for the user versus a heavy database for storage, thus providing the user full control of storage size utilized on their machines.

The files are stored in different formats depending on which studies/modules are being used.

.MXX format for the following module studies:

  • 5G


  • WiMAX

  • PTC

  • 2G & 3G

RXX Format for the following:

  • Multipoint

  • Route Studies

.TXT format for the following:

  • Mesh Studies



SignalPro comes with 2 different types of licenses:

  • Cirrus Licensing (e-license)

  • Hasp Keys*

The Cirrus Licensing is a unique offering that enables”

  • Licensing on the go (no waiting for keys)

  • Subscriptions for SignalPro & Map Data

  • Map Sync Feature (Maps on demand)

  • Access to the Cloud Platform

  • Working offline (check-out feature)

  • No extra equipment

The Hasp Key is a hardware dongle that will need to be plugged into the user's server/machine.

Please note the Hasp keys will be end of life Dec 2022*


COM Interface

Using this interface, a client can open and save projects, launch studies, and even add, modify, or delete transmitter and link sites.

The EDX data and procedures are manipulated through COM objects, which can be created in most popular Windows® languages including C#, C++, Python, Microsoft Visual Basic®, Java, Perl, and Javascript.

For more information, see reference guide Chapter 12.

Data Sources

EDX software allows you to use a wide variety of EDX data sources or your own custom data. Here is a list of the types of data sources EDX software can access:

  • Terrain - PTX, EDX universal .201 format, USGS ASCII DEM, DTED, MSI Planet, SRTM.HGT

Please see Appendix B for more information on the formats we support.

  • Clutter - Formats include .DAT, .gcv, ASCII, etc.

Please see Appendix E for more information on the formats we support.

  • Map information - Roads, railroads, political boundaries, coastlines, city and town locations and names, street data, and custom GIS map databases.

Please see Appendix G for more information on the formats we support.

  • Demographics - U.S. Census (in EDX format) and custom demographic databases.

Please see Appendix D for more information on the formats we support.

  • Traffic - You can create and use data sources of telecommunication traffic density for each sector based on criteria such as uniform distribution, land use, demographic, or traffic databases.

Please see Appendix D for more information on the formats we support.

  • Measurement - You can make use of collected test & measurement data for statistical analysis, propagation model tuning, creation of sector-specific propagation models, and for prediction purposes in lieu of propagation models.

Please see Appendix I for more information on the formats we support.

  • Buildings/Floor plans - EDX building outlines and custom building/floor plan databases. Formats include MCS, MDL, other formats can be converted in EDX

Please see Appendix C for more information on the formats we support.

  • Image - Raster images for use as map background layers. Installing the data is as simple as copying the files into folders on your hard drives.
