Heroes find ways to make things happen. Using their professional knowledge and relationships, Wireless Connectivity Heroes chart out groundbreaking solutions that are rapidly deployed and significantly change the nature of business, education, healthcare and public safety in a community.
Using the latest wireless communications technology, these leaders show the changes that can be made by rapidly deploying gigabit wireless communications far faster and at a lower cost than fiber or wired infrastructure. Their legacy is a deployed template for others to replicate.
Each quarter, we celebrate the successes of those who put the needs of the community first. Our newest Wireless Connectivity Heroes have taken it upon themselves to leverage their time and talents to connect businesses, residences, schools and hospitals. Cambium Networks will continue to celebrate more heroes each quarter. Please take a moment to nominate an individual or company who is making a difference with wireless connectivity in your area.
