Cambium Networks Announces Successful Deployments of its 60 GHz Multi-Gig Wireless Solution

Cambium Networks a global provider of wireless networking solutions announced successful deployments of its new 60 GHz cnWave solution. Proven in dozens of field installations with service providers in Australia, Malaysia, Puerto Rico, the UK and the United States, the system wirelessly delivers multi-gigabit throughput to rapidly expand broadband access to urban business, residential and industrial locations. Cambium Networks President and CEO Atul Bhatnagar feel their recent deployments around the world have proven that this new technology can dramatically increase the availability of broadband in underserved communities. It is nothing short of a breakthrough in the battle to bridge the digital divide.

Cambium's 60 GHz cnWave solution uses Facebook Connectivity's Terragraph technology and the latest 802.11ay compliant technology from Qualcomm Technologies, to deliver reliable, multi-gigabit internet speeds at a lower cost of ownership and faster time to market than trenching fiber. The latest addition to Cambium's multi-gigabit wireless fabric portfolio of solutions, 60 GHz cnWave is fully integrated into LINKPlanner and cnMaestro end-to-end cloud management that provides a bird's eye view of the entire network. The solution delivers reliable and secure connectivity for residential users, schools, enterprises, and industrial operations at a low total cost of ownership.

Malaysian communications provider YTL Communications is currently using Cambium's 60 GHz cnWave solution in its trials in Penang. This deployment will eliminate the need to trench fiber in a UNESCO heritage city while creating a new multi-gigabit wireless infrastructure. Wing K. Lee, CEO of YTL Communications feels like many cities with heritage structures, fiber deployment is quite difficult, and many businesses are stuck with legacy copper wires. The cnWave 60 GHz solution enables a multi-gigabit wireless mesh network -- elegantly using existing structures -- that has overnight transformed existing businesses and can easily scale to future demands.

NextLink in the United States has installed cnWave in trials in Texas and shares field results. Cameron Kilton, Chief Technology Officer of NextLink mentioned about their field test in Weatherford, Texas, they achieved close to 1.8 Gigabit uplink and downlink speeds using Cambium's 60 GHz cnWave solution in a single-channel configuration. These speeds far exceed the performance they were able to achieve with previous variations of 60 GHz equipment. They are looking forward to the channel bonding feature which combines two channels to deliver even higher speeds.

AeroNet, a service provider in Puerto Rico recently completed a 60 GHz cnWave installation. The deployment brought cost-effective, multi-gigabit connectivity to a centuries-old walled city that lacked fiber connectivity. Gino Villarini, founder and president of AeroNet feels Cambium Networks 60 GHz cnWave equipment, they can serve more customers with dependable gigabit speeds in more areas.  Rapier Systems, specialists in the design, installation and support of wireless (including Wi-Fi) networks in the UK, has been testing the Cambium Networks cnWave solution. The deployment is anticipated to deliver up to 1000 Mbps in a very cost-effective manner, without the delays associated with fiber.

Dan Rabinovitsj, Vice President for Facebook Connectivity and Rahul Patel, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Connectivity at Qualcomm Technologies also applauded Cambium Networks for their technological innovation, helping to deploy multi-gigabit connectivity worldwide with their latest 60 GHz cnWave solution. They feel Cambium Networks is bringing Terragraph to the market at scale.
