Cambium technology offers 5G-like speeds surpassing DSL and cable

Cambium Networks wireless broadband solutionsCambium Networks announced new technology addition that aids telecom network operators to provide 5G-like speeds surpassing DSL and cable alongside providing an output similar to that of a fiber network.

The trigger behind this innovation lies with the ever rising consumer demand for streaming media like Netflix along-with the need to support symmetric traffic expectations related to cloud based services, and higher capacity service level agreements.

The wireless broadband point-to-point (PTP), point-to-multipoint (PMP) and Wi-Fi platform provider group has claimed with this launch that the cnMedusa product is the only commercially marketed MU-MIMO platform intended for use with fixed wireless broadband.

The highlights of the product include a 14×14 integrated antenna array which has a throughput more than the current 802.11ac Wave 2 and LTE-A planned implementation of 8×8, and is also capable of assisting up to seven simultaneous carrier chains.

The spectral efficiency of this launch enables the wireless services providers to provide triple-play services to the current subscriber base and to attract more of those, and that too sans the need of an additional spectrum or modified equipment.

cnMedusa PMP 450m with at-least thrice the capacity supports more than 400 Mbps for a 20 MHz channel, with a spectral efficiency of greater than 20 bits per second per Hz, which can go up to 40 bps/Hz when deployed under frequency re-use configurations. The technology, which took three years to develop, interfaces well with traditional PMP 450 subscriber modules hence cutting down the expenses in network equipment department. cnMedusa is available now through Cambium Networks distributors.

The technology sports a fully integrated advanced sector antenna which will cut down capital costs and lower operating expenses in installation and prevent recurring tower fees.

Cambium also recently revealed the expansion of its ePMP wireless broadband portfolio with the debut of the ePMP 2000 wireless broadband platform.
