ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., June 11, 2014 — Cambium Networks™, a global leading provider of wireless broadband solutions, today announced that SICE Telecom, a leading wireless distributor, has become an ePMP™ distributor in Italy.
“SICE is pleased to add Cambium Networks to our network infrastructure portfolio. Our new relationship will allow us to offer scalable, highly reliable and low latency wireless network solutions throughout Italy,” said Arnaldo Moriconi, President and CEO, SICE Telecom. “Our partnership will enhance both companies’ positions within this market.”
Italy has over 500 Internet service providers that use wireless broadband access technologies to deliver broadband capacity in rural communities, exceeding what DSL can currently offer locally. The Italian market is one of the largest WISP markets in Europe offering extensive broadband coverage for VoIP, video and data services.
The ePMP 1000 broadband wireless access platform was designed for flexibility and scalability with non-GPS Sync options for smaller networks that can be easily upgraded to the ePMP 1000 GPS Sync Radio once a network requires more access points (APs) to serve a larger population or cover areas beyond the reach of the original network architecture. 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.
“ePMP will complement SICE’s portfolio by bringing scalability and reliability, allowing SICE to satisfy its growing customer demand,” said Alessio Murroni, Regional Sales Director, Cambium Networks. “With over 30 years of experience in the telecommunications market, SICE is recognized as a leading wireless distributor in Italy and will be a key partner to Cambium Networks in proliferating high-quality connectivity in communities that currently lack it.”
