Today at Cambium Networks, we’re celebrating not only a company milestone, but one for the whole wireless industry. I am proud to announce that since launching our suite of PMP solutions more than ten years ago, we have sold more than five million wireless radios in 150+ countries around the world.
Why is this so significant? Beyond the presence of our equipment in nearly every nation, what’s really important is that we’ve helped connect places that would have never had fast, reliable Internet access otherwise. Places that wires and cables can’t reach, where a strong end-to-end solution is the only hope of connecting a hospital, a classroom, or a community center. This unique capability of the PMP product line – bringing many different capacities and ranges to communities via long-distance PTP links – has helped us deliver on our global promise to connect the unconnected.
The journey up to this point has been far from ordinary: back in 2004, we were offering a throughput of 7 megabits per second, and that was revolutionary at the time. Today we’re delivering speeds up to 450 megabits in unlicensed and 1 gigabit in licensed spectrums.
Throughout our history in wireless broadband, we’ve been committed to delivering rugged, survivable systems that our partners and customers can depend on for any deployment – no matter how challenging. Whether it’s for rural connectivity in Croatia or urban video surveillance for public safety in Tampa, Florida, we’ll always be the partner you can trust to connect far-reaching sites. And we’re the only one you can come to for a complete solution, from long-distance backhaul links, to point-to-multipoint access, all the way into buildings and homes with indoor WiFi.
So, here’s to many more years of pushing wireless further than it’s ever been able to go, at the industry’s highest speeds and lowest costs. That’s been our modus operandi since the beginning, and we’re excited about where it will take us next.
