Wireless That Spans Distance and Time
|Wireless That Spans Distance and Time
Not everything has changed since 2008. Back when the world learned that the Android 1.0 was launched, this four-kilometer, point-to-point fixed wireless broadband link was installed at an industrial location in Kenya East Africa.
The link has been providing reliable service 24/7 since then. While our technology is continuously evolving to keep in step with the latest standards and high spectral efficiency, it is also good to see that older systems continue to provide the performance and value for which they were created.
Given the rapid demand for connectivity, network operators around the world are seeking solutions to connect people, places and things.
With the time and cost associated with fiber infrastructure, many are researching fixed wireless wide area networks that can be rapidly deployed at a fraction of the cost.
Selecting the right wireless equipment can make all the difference in creating a connection that satisfies network users over the long term.
Cambium Networks provides Wireless Solutions that Just Work. While this promise certainly covers new installations to meet the ever-growing demand for connectivity, the idea also covers connecting those locations over the long term.
The ROI of equipment that performs for more than a decade in harsh environments with little maintenance is quite attractive.
Our technology has changed to provide the highest throughput possible. Over time, our portfolio of wireless solutions has expanded to meet end-user demand for increased capacity and coverage.
Our technology now includes fixed wireless wide area networks and indoor/outdoor Enterprise Wi-Fi and switching.
All our solutions are managed in the cloud by the cnMaestro™ system that provides an end-to-end view of the network via a single pane of glass.
This summer, we are celebrating the longevity of our equipment that has been providing reliable connectivity for years.
I encourage you to share your story at this thread on our Community. Or you can review the stories to see what can be connected and for how long.
|Wireless that is Easy to Evolve
No one can make new RF spectrum. But regulators can shape the way that operators use the scarce limited spectrum that we have.
In the United States, the FCC is working hard to make new spectrum available, and regulatory agencies in other countries are observing the success of their efforts.
A manufacturer must make the most of working within regulations. Cambium Networks is doing so in two ways: first, by providing higher spectral efficiency so that operators can move more data in tight spectrum.
In a previous blog, we discussed the development challenges to deliver high spectral efficiency. Second, by making it easy for network operators to rapidly take advantage of regulatory changes and achieve the business benefits of the technology.
Software-defined radio technology in our fixed wireless radios enables existing hardware to add functionality by changing the software load.
As a result, time-consuming and costly field work is not needed, and the network changes as new software is loaded.
We also make it easy for operators to plan and execute the migration.
Learning how to migrate the system is easy wherever you are. We have provided the details in this Service Activation and Onboarding Webinar recording.
Cambium Networks has also developed a Spreadsheet Template Tool that saves time and effort in getting devices onboarded to CBRS.
Network operators can upload a complete sector of business and residential subscribers where the PMP 450 platform is used.
This tool minimizes the waiting period for getting authorized to operate in CBRS and collates all required CPI information by sector. With these measures in place, operators have clear and easy records in case of future changes.
You are never alone. Our Cambium Community has more than 34,000 registered members who are able to share best practices about many topics, including a section devoted to CBRS.
Here, you can learn from many others who are implementing this technology to meet end-user demand for bandwidth.
Times are tough for everyone on many levels. Our technology and support make it easy for network operators to gracefully evolve with the times and consistently deliver multi-gigabit wireless solutions that just work.
