We are pleased to announce that Cambium Networks has been named the 2012 Manufacturer of the Year by WISPA, the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association. The Manufacturer of the Year Award is given for product innovation and outstanding contributions to WISPA and the fixed wireless broadband industry. WISPA presented Cambium with the award during its annual WISPAPALOOZA conference, Oct. 22 – 26 at the South Point Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas.
Cambium supplies the wireless industry (carrier and service providers alike) with fixed wireless networking systems that help residents, businesses and government connect – from streaming video and gaming to real-time data access and video conferencing. Cambium has more than four million products deployed in thousands of networks in over 150 countries. Residents and businesses that could not take full advantage of the Internet due to the slow speeds of DSL or high deployment costs associated with fiber are able to use advanced applications, including VoIP telephony and video surveillance programs, on a Cambium network.
“It is a great honor to receive this award,” said Phil Bolt, president and CEO, Cambium Networks. “Cambium became an independent company just a year ago. It has been a tremendous journey this past year, and it’s a great honor to celebrate our one year anniversary with this recognition from WISPA.”
