Designed to offer unparalleled accuracy and ease of use, Cambium Networks' cutting-edge Radio Frequency (RF) Planning Software, CnHeat is revolutionizing the way Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) plan, deploy, and market their services.

Whether you’re aiming to identify the best coverage areas or determine the optimal antenna placement, CnHeat provides the tools you need to succeed. 

What is CnHeat?

CnHeat is a relatively new Radio Frequency (RF) Planning Software created by Cambium Networks. It's a powerful tool for anyone using fixed wireless radios (not just Cambium’s) that generates precise connection predictions and coverage maps.

Think of it like the coverage maps you get from the big cell carriers, but tailored to your specific needs.

What does CnHeat do?

Generate coverage reports

CnHeat lets you create detailed reports showing which homes and businesses you can cover, down to the exact address, using the data from your tower sites. This means you can see exactly where you can provide service and where you can’t.

Find the perfect mounting location for your antenna

It also helps installers figure out the best spot on a roof to mount an antenna! Sometimes, only a small 3ftx3ft area of the roof gets a good signal, and CnHeat’s accuracy, down to 1.5 feet using LiDAR data, ensures you hit the sweet spot every time.

Using CnHeat Targeted Marketing Efforts

CnHeat is a game-changer for wireless internet service providers (WISPs) who can’t afford to waste time and money on marketing to areas where they can't actually provide service.

Instead of sending out mailers to a whole community only to find out later that 50% of the houses can't connect, you can know ahead of time exactly who you can serve. This saves time, money, and avoids frustrating customers with false promises.

Some ISPs even avoid marketing to certain areas because they don’t have the manpower to verify line of sight for every house.

With CnHeat, as soon as you get a call from a potential customer, you can type in their address and instantly know if you can provide service.

Customer Feedback on CnHeat

Feedback from ISPs has been overwhelmingly positive.

One customer told us that in just two months, they gained 70 new customers, all thanks to CnHeat. Without it, they wouldn’t be where they are today.

In conclusion, CnHeat has become a must-have tool for wireless internet service providers promising to save them time and money on marketing and allowing them to scale their business strategically. Its accurate coverage reports and antenna placement guidance help maximize efficiency and keep customers happy.
