Cambium Networks, a global provider of wireless networking solutions, has announced the selection of Sequans’ LTE-Advanced chipset platform, Cassiopeia, for two Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) designs for global markets. The new CPEs are high-performance integrated access devices with which Cambium aims to meet the integrated data, voice, and internet access needs of its residential, business, and enterprise customers. Cambium Networks delivers the latest in LTE technology and high-performance integrated access devices with capabilities such as advanced MIMO operation, carrier aggregation, and very high throughput.

Cambium Networks’ LTE-Advanced CPE Descriptions:
  • cnRanger 2 GHz Tyndall 101 - An LTE Category 4 Subscriber Module with 14 dBi integrated panel antenna supporting TD-LTE Bands 38, 40 and 41. Available now.
  • cnRanger 3 GHz Tyndall 201 - An LTE Category 6 Subscriber Module with 19 dBi integrated dish antenna supporting TD-LTE Bands 42, 43 and 48. Available mid-2020.

The LTE-Advanced chip inside the new Cambium Networks CPE devices is Sequans’ Cassiopeia LTE-Advanced chip platform, a member of Sequans’ StreamrichLTE family of products for broadband high-performance devices. Cassiopeia is compliant with 3GPP Release 10 specifications and supports highly flexible dual-carrier aggregation that allows the combination of any two carriers of any size up to 20 MHz each, contiguous or non-contiguous, inter-band or intra-band.

The platform also supports other Release 10 enhancements such as new MIMO schemes, enhanced inter-cell interference coordination (eICIC) schemes for heterogeneous networks (HetNets), and improvements to eMBMS (evolved multimedia broadcast multicast service) or LTE broadcast. Cassiopeia also features Sequans’ advanced receiver technology for improved performance.

According to Cambium’s Director of Product Management, Matt Mangriotis, the company selected the Sequans’ platform because of their leadership in LTE technology for CPE devices and there extensive global experience in bringing devices of this type to market. Sequans’ LTE-Advanced technology has enabled Cambium to bring to market cost-effective purpose-built fixed LTE solutions for private networks, expanding its wireless fabric portfolio of advanced wireless networking solutions.
