This week, Cambium is exhibiting at the AFCEA West 2012 conference in San Diego. It is billed as the largest defense event on the West Coast and a launching pad for seeing the latest defense deployment technologies in areas such as: communications, electronics, intelligence, information systems, imaging, military weapon systems, aviation, shipbuilding and more.
This year’s theme, “America’s Military at the Crossroads: What’s Out and What’s In for 2012 and Beyond,” directly speaks to the exciting products we’ll be unveiling at the show geared toward providing wireless broadband for federal and military applications. First, we are extremely proud to announce that our PTP 600 Series has been certified for use by the DoD’s Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and listed on the UC APL list. What is even more exciting is that we have the only commercially available Fixed Wireless Network Element (F-NE) on the UC APL. Gaining UC APL approved status was a rigorous process, but one that we really believe will pay off for our customers and partners in the long run. It is also a reflection of our intent to make the necessary R&D investments where they should be made. Security and reliability are key for any deployment for military, defense or federal applications. Now, PTP 600 users will be guaranteed that the products meet the specifications that the military and federal government require for a variety of applications, including battlefield communications, convoy mobility, video surveillance, border backbone, and long range and tactical military operations, among others. With this certification, users can feel confident that they are deploying a military grade product line, no matter what their application.
We are also introducing a brand new cost effective COTS solution to the Cambium product family, the RDB 350, rapid deployment broadband (RDB). Based on IEEE 802.16e technology RDB 350 is a ruggedized, all outdoor solution for On the Move and At the Halt military and federal agency applications and can be deployed rapidly, handling a wide range of operational and geographic venues. Available for use in the 4.4-5.0 Ghz federal spectrum RDB 350 also meets MIL-STD 810G requirements for a range of difficult outdoor environments.
