By Cambium Networks   July 16, 2014

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., July 16, 2014 — Cambium Networks™, a global leading provider of wireless broadband solutions, today announced the release of PTP 450 and PTP 650L, expanding its portfolio of point-to-point (PTP) solutions. PTP 450 and PTP 650L are designed for applications such as enterprise access, backup connection services, leased line replacement and video surveillance. The addition of PTP 450 and PTP 650L provides network operators with wireless broadband solutions that enable growth of new services as needed while maximizing ROI.

“In our commitment to connect the under or unconnected, we continue to expand our portfolio with affordable and reliable solutions,” said Scott Imhoff, VP of product management, Cambium Networks. “With the addition of PTP 450 and PTP 650L, we are able to provide network operators with products that facilitate long-term growth for their networks while providing them fast ROI in the near-term.”

PTP 450

PTP 450 is Cambium Networks’ first point-to-point backhaul solution offered in 3.65 GHz lightly licensed and 3.5 GHz licensed bands, in addition to 5 GHz. PTP 450 is a PTP solution based on the point-to-multipoint platform, incorporating key features such as low predictable latency and GPS synchronization. PTP 450 is optimized for reach, reliability and throughput in a compact form factor, making it ideal for enterprise access services such as data, VoIP, video conferencing, video surveillance and backup connection service.

The PTP 450 is an affordable entry level solution that can be deployed and configured within hours, providing robust connectivity in any type of environment. Key features of the PTP 450:

  • Frequency availability: 3.5 GHz, 3.65 GHz, and 5470 – 5875 MHz

  • Capacity: up to 125 Mbps

  • Latency: 3 – 5 ms

  • Flexible channel width: 5, 10 and 20 MHz

  • Modulation: 256 QAM

  • Smart Antenna Technology: OFDM 2×2 MIMO A + B

PTP 650L

The PTP 650L is a sub-6 GHz, non-line-of-sight (NLOS) PTP solution with a small form factor and up to 100 Mbps capacity. It offers high spectral efficiency and reliability in congested environments. The solution’s flexibility, reliability and security are suited for enterprise access and video surveillance applications for the service provider, public safety, government, utilities, and oil and gas markets.

Leveraging signature features of the PTP 650 platform, the PTP 650L includes Dynamic Spectrum Optimization™ (DSO) which provides in-band, online spectrum analysis and self-optimization as well as industrial-grade security features and carrier-grade enclosures. An available software upgrade extends capacity to 300 Mbps in a 30 MHz channel for future wireless network growth.

PTP 650L is an ideal network access solution for customers who place a premium on security, out-of-band management, and spectral efficiency and flexibility. The PTP 650L has a power over Ethernet (PoE) output port for a video camera and can be fiber-fed. Key features of the PTP 650L:

  • Frequency availability: 4.9 GHz to 6.05 GHz

  • Capacity: up to 100 Mbps, upgradeable to 300 Mbps

  • Latency: 1 – 3 ms

  • Flexible channel width: 5 and 10 MHz, upgradable to 30 MHz

  • Modulation: 256 QAM

LINKPlanner now supports PTP 650L, and PTP 450 support will be available later this year. This free, easy-to-use link-design tool allows network operators to easily and quickly design PTP networks. Microsoft® Windows® and Intel®-based Mac® versions of PTP LINKPlanner can be downloaded from Cambium Networks’ support pages.

PTP 450 and PTP 650L are now available globally for order through Cambium Networks’ distributors.
