Cambium Launches Sub-6 GHz Backhaul Radio for Small Cells

Cambium Networks introduced a Point-to-Point (PTP) 650S Small Cell backhaul radio that delivers up to 450 Mbps aggregate throughput at 2km and packaged in a small form factor suitable for mounting on the sides of buildings or poles.

The Cambium PTP 650S is a sub-6 GHz point-to-point (PTP) wireless backhaul solution tailored for small cell networks. Non-line-of-sight (NLOS) installations are made possible by 2x2 multiple-input multiple-output orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) and Dynamic Spectrum Optimization (DSOTM) technologies. Bands supported include 4.9, 5.2, 5.4 and 5.8 GHz frequencies, and future support of 2.6 and 3.5 GHz is planned. Timing and synchronization support includes IEEE 1588v2 and Synchronous Ethernet.

Cambium also noted that with a volume of less than 3 liters volume (or less than 0.1 cubic feet), the PTP650S can qualify as “De Minimis” in certain European countries and the UK, and therefore does not require planning permission enable rapid small cell deployments.

"Performance, reliability, scalability and agility are the cornerstones of all of our platforms. In PTP 650S, we have given all of these qualities a boost with built-in technologies: dynamic spectrum optimization (DSO), IEEE 1588v2, Synchronous Ethernet, and dual stack IPv4 and IPv6 support to name a few,” said Scott Imhoff, vice president of product management, Cambium Networks. “With small cell networks continuing to proliferate and require additional support, in addition to the need for flexible platforms to suit global connectivity spanning industries and applications, the timing for PTP 650S’s release couldn’t be better."

Cambium Launches 5 GHz ePMP Wireless Access for Rural Broadband

Cambium Networks unveiled its ePMP wireless access platform for connecting underserved and unconnected global communities.

ePMP is a point-to-multipoint (PMP) fixed wireless access solution that operates in the 5GHz frequency band and can deliver over 200 Mbps throughput using 2x2 MIMO-OFDM technologies and 20/40 MHz channel bandwidth. Using sectored antennas, ePMP can cover a range of up to 21km.  Up to 120 units can be configured for point-to-multipoint.

Cambium employs intelligent bandwidth algorithms to direct the bandwidth where it’s needed and GPS synchronization for frequency use without interference.  The GPS synchronization significantly improves UDP/TCP performance.  The system uses a commercial 802.11n system on a chip (SoC) that has been modified to create a deterministic TDMA system.  Cambium has also employed a modified, high performance and noise resistant MAC and PHY. The design also features surge protection against lightning strikes.

Compared to Google's Project Loon or Facebook's Internet.org initiative, Cambium said its 5 GHz point-to-multipoint radio is a practical solution for extending broadband to rural or municipal locations.  It could also be deployed in point-to-point configurations for enterprise LAN extension links, or for video surveillance backhaul. Subscriber modules are estimated to cost under US$100.

ePMP incorporates several of Cambium Networks’ innovations:

  • GPS Synchronization for Scalability and Quality of Service (QoS) – GPS sync provides the scalability and reliability service providers need to expand their networks, enabling them to take advantage of growth opportunities and create sustainable business models. ePMP is able to handle up to 120 subscribers per unit without service degradation due in part to the spectral efficiency achieved through GPS sync.
  •  Prioritization for Quality of Service (QoS) - ePMP provides superior QoS with three levels of support for VoIP, high-speed data and video applications. The auto VoIP feature on the GUI enables automatic voice prioritization, delivering clear and uninterrupted audio. Prioritization ensures maximum performance, consistently delivering high data quality and guarding against garbled speech and choppy video transmissions.
  • Robust Security – ePMP assures integrity of critical information transmitted over the network with 128-bit AES encryption and L2 and L3 firewall settings.
     
  •  Durability, Ease of Deployment and Maintenance - With a decade of experience in outdoor installation, Cambium Networks’ hardware is designed to ensure consistently high performance and resiliency in the outdoor environment regardless of temperature, humidity or altitude, and requires few tools to install. Its GUI is intuitive with real-time dashboard support, and companies can also use call center support with toll-free or local telephone access in 22 countries.

The company is introducing two ePMP modules: the ePMP 1000 Integrated Radio and the ePMP 1000 GPS Sync Radio. Both can be configured in GPS synchronized networks as synchronization is a necessity in any environment, regardless of spectral competition.

“It is Cambium Networks’ vision to connect the unconnected and make a difference without sacrificing any modicum of quality – we have taken the first step in realizing our dream with ePMP,” said Atul Bhatnagar, president and CEO, Cambium Networks. “The "e" in ePMP stands for ‘equalize,’ and we consider it our call to action. This platform levels the global economic playing field by facilitating Internet connections in places where connectivity was once impossible.”
