ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., July 27, 2015 — Cambium Networks™, a leading global provider of wireless broadband solutions, today released PTP 700, a point-to-point wireless broadband solution for mission-critical communications in the federal, government, industrial and public safety space.

Encompassing unlicensed and licensed frequency bands, PTP 700 is a best-in-class platform for deployment flexibility and sustainability. The PTP 700 lowers the total cost of ownership while supporting a wide breadth of missions, including situational awareness, video surveillance, border security, base modernization, test range communications, first responder rapid deployments and tactical military operations, all with a single radio. The PTP 700 is available as a Connectorized Radio or Connectorized+Integrated Radio, which allows for antenna selection at time of deployment. In a future software release, the PTP 700 will support high-capacity multipoint to further extend mission capabilities.

“Managing spectrum is vital in the communications we plan for our military operations both domestically and overseas,” said Mike Olson, Spectrum Manager for Fort Bliss, U.S. Department of Defense, Spectrum Management Office. “The flexibility Cambium Networks’ PTP 700 offers is unparalleled. It allows us to nimbly deploy complex network architectures without having to invest in additional equipment once topology, antenna configuration and spectrum availability have been determined.”

Key features of PTP 700 include:

  • Frequency: 4.4 GHz to 5.9 GHz in a single radio
  • Throughput: up to 450 Mbps
  • Range: up to 124 miles (200 kilometers)

“We’ve been customers of Cambium Networks for some time and have been pleased with the performance of our PTP 600 modules,” said Dan Bambach, general manager, Southwestern Wireless. “We were impressed with the PTP 700’s superior performance and flexibility, and look forward to incorporating it in our existing networks for a range of public services.”

The PTP 700 is available now through Cambium Networks’ global distributors and will ship in August.

“In the federal, public safety and industrial space, network operators require high-performance equipment that can be deployed in any scenario. Their work and often, our safety, depend on our technology. Our heritage in mission-critical communications has given us strong expertise in efficiently, economically and securely transmitting information over any environment for any purpose.
