Enhanced Feature Offerings Bring Dual-Band Flexibility, Superior Small-Packet Performance and Greater Throughput Speeds to Enterprise, Government Agencies and Wireless ISP Applications

SCHAUMBURG, ILL., March 21Anchor, 2012Cambium Networks™, a leading provider of wireless broadband solutions for reliable connectivity in any environment, today released an upgraded version of its PTP 250 wireless Ethernet solution. Purpose-built to deliver superior performance and reliability to enterprises, government organizations and service providers, the PTP 250 now offers throughput speeds up to 256 Mbps and best-in-class performance for small-packet applications, such as Voice-over-IP (VoIP), video surveillance, distance learning and on-demand video. The PTP 250 also delivers dual-band functionality with support for the 5.4 and 5.8 GHz radio transmissions and is authorized for use by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Industry Canada (IC), and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).

“The PTP 250 allows us to offer faster, more economical services that align with our clients’ requests to support new-media functionality like updating Facebook, streaming movies from Netflix or participating in online gaming sites,” said Nathan Stooke, Chief Executive Officer, WisperISP, Inc. “The upgraded feature capabilities will further enable WisperISP to better serve the unique needs of our customers – residential and small to medium-sized enterprises alike.”

Fast, Reliable and Affordable Connectivity

Designed to securely transport data, voice and video in both near line-of-sight (nLOS) and line-of-sight (LOS) environments, the PTP 250 delivers fast, reliable and affordable connectivity at a time when enterprises and providers are challenged with increasing bandwidth capacity to support additional applications, subscribers and users. System benefits include:

  • Dual-Band Flexibility: Operates in both the 5.4 or 5.8 GHz bands for added convenience and flexibility without having to switch radios.
  • Best-in-Class Small-Packet Performance: PTP 250 includes a powerful packet processor and optimized protocols that support up to 234,000 packets-per-second for best-in-class small-packet performance, ideal for customers using video traffic applications.
  • Greater Throughput Speeds: PTP 250 offers up to 256 Mbps data transfer rates in a 40MHz channel, faster than most comparable systems.
  • Superior RADAR Detection: Equipped with Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) and improved RADAR detection algorithms to provide unmatched accuracy to prevent “falsing” that can cause a typical network to shut down. This new feature capability is critical for customers deploying networks in regions where RADAR detection is mandated. “Speed and reliability are critical in today’s fast-pace, multimedia environment,” said Tony Cecchin, vice president, Product & Business Operations, Cambium Networks. “Cambium is committed to delivering powerful and reliable solutions that meet the speed and bandwidth needs our customers. The PTP 250 enables customers with limited resources to establish or extend network communications affordably.” Resources Launched as an independent company in October 2011, Cambium Networks leverages the rich heritage of the Orthogon and Canopy Networks product portfolios — known worldwide for their proven reliability, ease of deployment, interference immunity, cost-effectiveness and ability to easily integrate and operate with other networks.
