  3. 3. Microwave Engineering W ith hundreds of years of combined experience in designing and installing Microwave Systems, Communication 200 years experience in an industry only decades old Infrastructure Corporation (CIC) has Preliminary Design Our preliminary design service helped Fortune 100 companies get the helps to determine the most from low cost, high and medium feasibility of a microwave network. Preliminary design capacity networks. CIC offers the incorporates validating path complete spectrum of turnkey profiles and path feasibility as well as analyzing site Microwave design, installation and inventory to locate potential project management services. Our sites in GIS format. The preliminary design typically experience allows us to draw from involves mapping all site multiple technologies and equipment options and determining potential microwave paths vendors to tailor a Microwave solution using Pathloss 4 software to view path profiles. that best fits your needs. CIC uses one arc second terrain data whenever it is available and owns most available data throughout North and South America. Unlike three arc second terrain data used by other companies, one arc second data reflects data points used by the USGS 7.5 Topographic mapping department. With higher resolution, path profiles are much more reliable, eliminating rework in the engineering phase. The preliminary design can help us determine the most efficient use of all feasible paths using the customer’s sites or any available site in the region. Microwave RF Engineering When it comes to RF Engineering, precision is key. Our field path surveying teams employ the use of Differential GPS data-collecting equipment, with centimeter accuracy -- the most accurate in the world -- to ensure system design. CIC Transmission engineers have performed thousands of path surveys throughout North and South America. CIC will analyze the microwave path and identify all ranges of MW beam propagation characteristics, multipath, refractions, diffraction, and reflections. Antenna configurations and optimum placement are analyzed to ensure minimal propagation losses. When CIC conducts microwave path engineering and installation, the microwave reliability is guaranteed to pass performance specifications. Our customers have peace of mind that their system is performing reliably year in and year out.
