Cambium Networks Introduces 450 Mbps High Capacity Multipoint for Commercial Markets

Cambium Networks, a global provider of wireless networking solutions, has introduced a new fixed wireless broadband system. The new PTP 670 brings High Capacity Multipoint (HCMP) capability available for defense and national security applications, to commercial markets. The wireless broadband system provides up to 450 Mbps of throughput for video, data and voice applications; and can be deployed in Point-to-Point (PTP) or High Capacity Point to Multipoint (PMP) configurations to support video surveillance or mission critical infrastructure backhaul applications.

Public safety agencies, industrial operators, and service providers generally need high throughput in limited spectrum, and the PTP 670's high spectral efficiency meets this need. The system operates in the 4.9 GHz public safety band and in the 5 to 6.05 GHz unlicensed frequency bands. In addition, it along with HCMP, enables industrial and critical infrastructure operators to deploy a secure, high efficiency multipoint system with up to eight separate locations.

The point-to-point fixed wireless platform, was introduced in 2013 and was recently deployed in the Himalayas to bring broadband access to one of the most remote and environmentally demanding places on earth. Equipped with Cambium Networks' unique Dynamic Spectrum Optimization capabilities, the PTP 670 performs real-time diagnostics on link performance and automatically adjusts to achieve maximum throughput speeds.

Planning a PTP 670 deployment is also easy with the LINKPlanner software. This free software takes the source and destination points and provides a path profile with detailed performance projections and specific installation information. This helps network operators get good installations done right the first time.

Key PTP 670 features include:

  • PTP and HCMP mode
  • High Capacity - 450 Mbps throughput with 10bps/Hz
  • Wide band - 4.9 to 6.05 GHz Frequency band
  • Security - 128/256-bit AES encryption, Over-the-air rekeying (OTAR), HTTPS/TLS and SNMPv3 management, RADIUS authentication, and configurable password rules.
  • Interfaces - Two Gigabit Ethernet ports and an SFP port for optional fiber interface. Supports standard 802.3at PoE output port.
  • Versatility – Easy-to-integrate layer 2 bridge implementation supports symmetric and asymmetric TDD operation, 1588v2, and synchronous Ethernet precision timing and frequency.
