Design Tool Question

When you use the Mimosa Network Design tool does it include the trees and foliage when determining if a link will work or do you have to allow for the height of the trees?


Unfortunately trees and foliage are not included in Mimosa’s design tool. The data required for that is rather expensive. Companies like Tower Coverage and Cambium (Their product CN Heat) spend a lot of money on that (I have talked to Dennis, the owner of Tower Coverage, and it’s neither cheap nor easy to implement).

That said, if you have relatively even amount of growth in your area, you can go into “Link Settings” and set “Ground Buffer” to a height to warn you of your link obstructions.
