ROLLING MEADOWS, ILL., Oct. 1, 2012 CambiumNetworks™, a leading provider of wireless broadband access network solutions, today announced the PTP 810i All-Indoor solution, a modular, point-to-point (PTP) indoor wireless backhaul solution designed to support native Ethernet and TDM applications simultaneously for seamless migrations to all Internet Protocol (IP)-based systems. Ideal for use in high-power, indoor environments where long distance support and spatial diversity are required, the addition of the PTP 810i solution will grow Cambium’s existing PTP 810 family of licensed microwave products offering service providers and network operators a highly flexible, scalable and cost-effective hybrid solution as the market evolves to support packet-based, VoIP systems.
Many industries have been slow to move to all-IP platforms due to the potential difficulties and costs of transitioning their TDM hardware to all IP-based systems. With the PTP 810i, companies can now use a single, software-based platform to support their legacy systems during upgrades and avoid the pitfalls of having to rip and replace systems already in service. The platform’s modular nature allows for flexibility and scalability, as well as easy integration with legacy systems so users can choose the interface that best suits their needs. Ideal for applications in industries such as public safety, utilities, railroads and telecommunications, the PTP 810i helps users future-proof their communications infrastructure to grow and change with a company’s evolving needs for Internet connectivity.
“Customers today are demanding increasing access to bandwidth, and networks must have the flexibility and scale to provide reliable broadband access without interference, outages or connectivity challenges,” said Rob Hansen, vice president, product management, Cambium Networks. “As the market is in a state of change, in which both TDM and Ethernet solutions are the norm, we’ve made it a priority to be a resource to those who are looking to make a cost-effective transition. The PTP 810i allows Cambium’s customers to choose an agile, high-powered solution that supports the multimedia communications applications businesses demand.”
Delivering up to 477 Mbps, cross polarization interference cancellation (XPIC) enabled throughput and operating over Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Industry Canada (IC) authorized 6 and 11 GHz licensed bands, the PTP 810i consists of a rack-mountable Indoor Radio Frequency Unit (IRFU) and Modular Modem Unit (MMU) that supports T1/E1, STM-1 and Ethernet on a single platform. This architecture allows customers to transition to IP systems without cost- and time-intensive labor or expenditures for physical re-routing. With high system gain and support for spatial diversity, the PTP 810i also offers XPIC functionality by utilizing both horizontal and vertical polarizations in the same channel, doubling throughput capacity without increasing channel bandwidth. In addition, the PTP 810i lowers operational costs and can be configured to the unique specifications of each deployment.
