Cambium Networks has unveiled the Canopy PMP 450, a new platform designed to satisfy the ever-increasing desire for bandwidth among Internet users. A fourth-generation (4G), point-to-multipoint (PMP) fixed wireless broadband access solution, the PMP 450 delivers the capacity and performance service providers and private network operators require to meet today’s demanding and growing need for bandwidth.
The PMP 450 utilises a combination of very high throughput, low latency and GPS synchronization that enables service providers to rapidly deploy new services and increase revenue and profitability while realising a much faster return on their investment.
“We live in a fast-paced digital age, so it’s imperative that service providers stay ahead of customer demands,” said Phil Bolt, CEO and president, Cambium Networks. “The PMP 450 is a software-defined radio platform that will enable service providers to quickly power their network infrastructure to support more customers with greater bandwidth. The technological innovation we are bringing to market with this platform is truly transformative. It will give service providers the confidence and means to build networks that will meet the communication needs of today’s users well into the future.”
The PMP 450 allows service providers to reach data rates of more than 90 Mbps of peak throughput in only 20 MHz of spectrum from a single Access Point (AP). For those looking to deploy a more extensive network, two rings of six APs provide more than 1 gigabit of throughput. With the increased capacity provided by the PMP 450, service providers have the options to provide additional bandwidth to existing customers and add new customers, as well as offer voice and video services to all of them, which significantly increases average revenue per user (ARPU).
