ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., November 12, 2013 — Cambium Networks™, a global leading provider of wireless broadband solutions, today announced a software upgrade to its PTP 800 platform to support dual stack IPv6/IPv4 management in both the PTP 800 Split-Mount and PTP 800i All-indoor systems. This new capability enables a flexible strategy for network operators to deliver innovative platforms and services that benefit from the technical potentials of IPv6, while ensuring a graceful transition from legacy IPv4 architecture.
The PTP 800 Split-Mount systems deliver up to 368 Mbps (full duplex) throughput with user-configurable channel bandwidths from 7 to 56 MHz. The PTP 800i All-Indoor systems deliver up to 236 Mbps (full duplex) over configurable channel bandwidths from 10 to 40 MHz. Both solutions operate in IP-based, licensed microwave frequencies (6 – 38 GHz for PTP 800 and 6 – 11 GHz for PTP 800i), and are designed for use by public safety agencies, government entities, enterprises, carriers and Internet service providers. The solutions are ideal for multi-service networks that need high capacity, reliability and security. With the PTP 800’s new ability to support IPv6/IPv4 in three modes, IPv6 only, IPv4 only and dual IPv4/IPv6, the management agent can now facilitate the IPv6 features that ease interoperability between devices within a network and improve security and integrity of the data.
“Currently, IPv4 carries virtually all Internet traffic; however the transition to IPv6 is well underway,” said Scott Imhoff, vice president of product management, Cambium Networks. “With this upgrade, we are able to support both protocols with our current PTP 800 offering, allowing service providers to immediately expand their address range with IPv6 while lowering OpEx by eliminating the need to maintain independent IPv4 and IPv6 networks.”
Cambium Networks’ PTP 800 solutions are known for holding to rigorous, multi-layered information security standards and excelling in IP-based applications. To protect over-the-air transmissions, PTP 800 radios include the following features: Cambium Networks’ proprietary air interface, HTTPS/TLS, SNMP v3, authenticated SNTP, RADIUS and more. The PTP 800’s dynamic Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) automatically “up-shifts” and “down-shifts” depending on the weather and user behavior to improve spectral efficiency, increase throughput and maintain link stability. The field-proven PTP 800 is deployed in hundreds of global networks with more than 15,000 units currently in operation.
