Our Ally is the Force

By    July 29, 2014

With the release of “The Empire Strikes Back” in 1980, the world met Yoda, the tiny Jedi giant of Dagobah. He amused Star Wars fans then as now with his unique phraseology and sage presence, miraculously levitating Luke Skywalker’s X-wing fighter out of the bog with this prelude: “Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force.

For Yoda and the other Jedis out there – the network engineers we work with to do what was once impossible – we proudly present the ePMP Force 100, our new ally in stretching wireless broadband to new frontiers. As a pioneer in wireless networking, Cambium Networks continues to perfect the alchemy behind getting more out of the invisible lines – radio frequencies (RF) – that fuel high-quality Internet connectivity far from fiber networks. The ePMP Force 100 is the latest in our powerful line of wireless access solutions that give network architects more options for delivering the connectivity that subscribers want to maximize ROI.

Onboard the ePMP Force 100 are updated tools in software release 2.1, increasing network Metachlorians to help Padawans become Jedis:

  • eFortify controls the Force with new algorithms mitigating internal and external interference, the dark side that can overtake vulnerable systems – the Force 100 can defeat even the baddest of Siths – Darth Vader. With 2.1, network engineers can further optimize the system’s RF performance with the option to operate with enabled or disabled carrier sense.
  • eCommand offers a whole new graphical user interface (GUI), which allows engineers to restore order to the galaxy by detecting interference and analyze spectrum to plan, provision and monitor the network.
  • eDetect provides a snapshot of the network to reveal the sources of external  interference and the impacts on the network. Through learning where weakness lies, network managers can confidently troubleshoot without fear of compromised performance.

The Force 100 is just the beginning – not even lightning (get it?) can stop it. If you’d like to join the “rebel forces” of Cambium Networks, check out ePMP, talk to fellow Jedis on our forum or sign up to be a beta tester.
