Growth. Flexibility. Intensity. Innovation.
These words are the core attributes of the Cambium Networks brand. While many of you may not know us by the Cambium brand name just yet, you have known us for quite some time. How, you may ask? Well, Cambium is built on the rich heritage of Orthogon Systems and Canopy Networks, two brands in the point-to-point (PTP) and point-to-multipoint (PMP) wireless broadband sectors you know well. For the last six years, we’ve been known as the Wireless Broadband Solutions Group inside Motorola. On October 29th, 2011, the division was divested from Motorola Solutions as an independent entity called Cambium Networks and acquired by Vector Capital. It’s true; Canopy and Orthogon have now joined forces as a new company – one that’s 100 percent focused on providing the most reliable, rugged and easy to install wireless connectivity available on the market today. The name is Cambium Networks.
Cambium, from the Latin meaning “exchange,” is a term used in biology to indicate the tissue from which all plants derive their secondary growth. It is also the growth that forms the annual rings within the trunk of a tree. We felt “Cambium” was the perfect term to describe not only the new beginning of these two companies joined as one, but it symbolizes our drive for growth in the wireless sector and our ability to be more flexible, stronger and more intense, and leaner on our own. Under the Cambium Networks brand, we’re able to be more idea-driven and more focused on delivering communications solutions that serve our customers with the wireless broadband products we provide for the federal and military, wireless internet service provider (WISP), public safety and industrial communications markets.
We’re excited to be here, and we’re excited to be out on our own, ready to provide a nimbler, more focused and aggressive solution set to meet the exploding demand for high-speed connectivity worldwide.
Cambium Networks. Watch us grow!
