Cambium Networks introduced its "GIGATOWER" wireless broadband access solution for enterprise and triple-play service deployments.
Based on the Canopy point-to-multipoint (PMP) 450 platform, the GIGATOWER enables service providers to further expand capacity to existing customers and offer high capacity broadband to new customers in urban, suburban and rural environments. The PMP 450's modular design allows the GIGATOWER to provide more than 1 gigabit of broadband capacity and extend coverage area to more than 75 square miles (120 square kilometers).
Canopy, which was originally developed under Motorola, has an installed base of four million modules worldwide.
"The PMP 450 and new GIGATOWER offer the ability to deploy in greenfield locations or to overlay existing DSL footprint with a solution that delivers HD video and IPTV, voice and data services at a cost point that truly changes broadband economics," said Jay Hilbert, senior vice president of Global Sales, Cambium Networks. "We are also introducing an entirely new architecture, the PTP-C ™, (Point-to-Point Cluster) for small cell backhaul among other applications. It's our more than 10 years' experience as the wireless IP market leader and our deep engineering expertise in NLoS and interference mitigation that have enabled us to redefine the function and form factor that will revolutionize how small cell backhaul will be deployed in years to come."
