Cambium Networks (News - Alert), a provider of wireless broadband solutions, is now offering its PMP 450 wireless broadband platform in 3 GHz licensed spectrum.
Launched in 2012, PMP 450 offers a flexible, reliable wireless broadband solution to support network operators' many fixed wireless applications including leased line replacement, 3G/4G offload, remote office connectivity, rural connectivity, smart grid advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), and more.
The broadband solution is already available at 2.4 and 5 GHz.
Cambium Networks is currently offering the solution in the range of 3300 - 3600 MHz, and it will open the 3550 - 3800 MHz in March 2014.
According to the company, availability of PMP 450 in 3 GHz frequency expands service providers’ global spectrum options to support their customer bases. It will also help them deliver enterprise-class broadband connectivity for access and backhaul that enables new revenue generating services.
The broadband solution can deliver 125 Mbps of throughput per access point in a 20 MHz channel. It can deliver dynamic adaptive modulation up to 256 QAM and GPS synchronization for scalability. The solution also ensures low latency to support data, video and VoIP applications.
Marco Guadalupi, CTO of Eurona Telecom, said, "This new licensed band offering enables Eurona Telecom to effectively utilize our 3.5 GHz spectrum with a competitive product to serve our residential and business subscribers.”
“Being able to leverage this spectrum with such a powerful GPS-synced radio improves our coverage and delivery of uniformly superb connectivity while growing our business," Guadalupi added.
Unlike contention-based systems, the PMP 450 with GPS synchronization mitigates self-interference and enables frequency re-use so that networks can scale from small to region-wide coverage while providing equally reliable connectivity.
Another feature of PMP 450 is that a single PMP 450 access point can support up to 238 subscribers modules without service degradation due in part to the synchronous operation mode of the platform.
"Introduction of the 3 GHz PMP 450 brings to bear an additional 550 MHz of licensed spectrum, allowing network operators around the world to expand their service offerings with confidence, and delivers the capacity to meet the ever-growing demand for broadband access," said Scott Imhoff, VP of product management, Cambium Networks.
