Cambium Networks Announces eFortify™ and eCommand™ to Enhance Performance of the ePMP™ 1000 Platform in High-Noise Environments

By Cambium Networks   May 14, 2014

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., May 14, 2014Cambium Networks™, a global leading provider of wireless broadband solutions, today announced the availability of eFortify and eCommandsoftware solutions for its leading point-to-multipoint solution the ePMP 1000. eFortify was developed to recognize and react to external interference in high noise environments, and eCommand provides a suite of management tools to plan, provision and monitor the network, providing operators with the ability to confidently deploy high performance networks, with greater visibility and control.

Today’s update to ePMP – software release 2.0 — introducing eFortify, allows the platform to recognize and react to external interference. eFortify ensures that, under various sources of external interference, the throughput of an ePMP network is not only maximized, while the latency remains consistent. It also assures that as a network operator increases the number of subscriber modules, the performance of the system is sustained under challenging interference environments.

Also announced today with software release 2.0 is eCommand, which provides a suite of management tools to plan, provision and monitor the network. eCommand includes a capacity planner, spectrum analyzer, and a new network interference tool. The interference tool identifies the sources of external interference and characterizes their impact on each ePMP node (Access Point and subscriber modules) of the network. It provides a quick snap shot of the environment around each node to provide the operator information about the health of their network. Using this information, the operator can take appropriate steps to resolve performance issues in the network, and to combat these external interferers.

The ePMP 1000 broadband wireless access platform was designed for flexibility and scalability with both non-GPS Sync options for smaller networks that can be easily upgraded with GPS Sync to the ePMP 1000 GPS Sync Radio once a network begins to grow and more AP’s are required to cover the designed areas. The ePMP 1000 operates in both 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency bands, and offers throughput of up to 200 Mbps per AP. ePMP 1000 is available globally through Cambium Networks’ distributors and software release 2.0 can be downloaded here.

What Cambium Customers Are Saying about ePMP 1000:

“We had limits, we had obstacles, and we had demands. The Cambium ePMP platform removed these constraints and allowed us to focus on our expansion efforts without looking back. ePMP is a game changer for us. The bandwidth available in the ePMP series is remarkable. With 30 customers on one AP, we are still able to offer them up to 15 Mbps plans.” — Curt Cormier, President & CEO at Kayse Wireless.

“We are fully committed to Cambium’s ePMP platform because GPS Synch is critical to our business. In this price class, ePMP 1000 is the only product that offers performance and scalability that we need. It’s the clear choice for us.” — Tushar Patel, Owner and CEO, ECPI, Western Texas Broadband.

“For us, the 5 GHz band is extremely noisy. We were amazed with the system performance in the face of external interference. We have a line of sight link operating at 7 km with -65 dBm of noise floor.” — Yazeed Ettaib, Deputy CTO, ION Telecom and Technology.

“Having GPS integrated into the solution has saved us time and money because we don’t need to allocate extra tower space for an external GPS device, and it reduces the amount of labor required to install the units. Furthermore, the speed of development from Cambium is incredible. We were able to test a new software load, and within days of providing feedback, the new features were incorporated and released. This is the speed that ISP’s need.” — Jaroslaw Szopa, CTO Euron
