Accelerating In-Building Public Safety Wireless Testing With PRiSM and iBwave Mobile Survey

Amy Devine

01/23/23

iBwave Mobile Survey is one of the most effective forms of analyzing both P25 public safety and cellular networks from mobile devices. PRiSM moves beyond spectrum analysis to build a more detailed view of unique network environments while also being self-contained and lightweight. PRiSM’s flexibility allows for seamless integration with iBwave Mobile Survey to improve P25 public safety network coverage to meet facility standards. Integration with a market-leading platform means simple surveys for integrators and easier data management. PRiSM’s handheld size and affordable price lead to better ROI for integrators with tools that get the job done with high efficacy. 

iBwave’s versatility allows teams to accelerate the survey phase with several key benefits: 

  • Collection of P25 public safety survey data.
  • Accessible survey data intake with seamless integration into PRiSM.
  • Visualization of interpolation heatmap for full wireless coverage.
  • Saving and storage of key site geolocation floorplan insights.
  • Downloading and viewing design plans via iBwave Unity cloud access.
  • Rapid survey map reporting.

PRiSM and iBwave are the summit of simplified end-to-end survey and design experience. With their broad range of capabilities, they’re able to deliver and exceed survey KPIs while saving surveyors valuable time. 

iBwave Mobile Survey — Surveying Done Right

iBwave Mobile Survey, when running on a tablet or phone attached to PRiSM, provides an expanded and improved level of insight for surveying data from networks and technologies, including: 

  • RSSI, CCI, and Throughput.
  • RSRP, RSRQ, SINR, and more Cellular KPIs.

With these assets, PRiSM and iBwave Mobile Survey provide a flexible and lightweight design and survey solution for increased network functionality. 

Documentation Flexibility

With iBwave Mobile Survey, you can use your mobile device’s built-in camera to capture images and videos as the survey phase is conducted. With this data, pushpins can be added to the floor plan along with accompanying text or voice notes, giving a universal structure and a one-stop shop for critical operation information. 

Annotations, floor plans, equipment inventory, survey maps and measurements are all generated through iBwave Viewer — software that powers easy-to-read comprehensive reporting for all stakeholders. 

Collaboration is Now Easier Than Ever

iBwave cloud technology is used to share survey data and documentation gathered on-site. Flagging issues with this level of expansive collaboration, security teams build insight and can iterate toward site improvements and efficiency. Troubleshooting that used to be locked to a desktop can now be done on a mobile device with iBwave Unity cloud access. 

P25 Public Safety In-Building Surveying Phase Optimization

PRiSM by Epiq Solutions brings the power of large network scanners while scaling down into a cost-effective handheld device — with no cost to performance. Our new partnership with iBwave mobile is groundbreaking for accelerated survey and maintenance phases. Combined with PRiSM, this is a tool that public safety stakeholders can have the utmost confidence in. 

PRiSM with iBwave Mobile Survey streamlines team workflow from planning to survey, to report generation and data management. PRiSM is the most comprehensive solution, and with iBwave integration, features now operate above and beyond — by logging notes, dropping pushpins, and capturing photos for better coordination and data insights. Data sharing with code enforcement officials and public safety communications officers ensure coordination on spectrum use and re-transmit agreements as required by federal network standards.

PRiSM and iBwave Mobile Survey allow for a streamlined planning and survey process. For P25 networks, PRiSM exceeds expectations by providing an all-carrier picture of coverage in a single patrol. iBwave and PRiSM make surveys of buildings less intrusive and improve time to project completion. 

Epiq Solutions is dedicated to developing state-of-the-art RF technology that allows our customers to meet their mission needs and enhance safety and security. iBwave is the global standard for in-building wireless survey solutions, which empowers security personnel and stakeholders. iBwave additionally provides hands-on training and certification programs, instilling awareness and proficiency in in-building wireless network design.
