5G Fixed Features:

Operating in the mmWave bands from 24.25 to 29.50 GHz, encompassing the 3GPP 5G channels N257, N258, and N261, Cambium Networks’ 5G Fixed solution will leverage the technological advantages of the 3GPP 5G NR Protocol and frame structure optimized for fixed wireless applications. The solution features the simplicity of deployment planning and centralized cloud management that distinguish Cambium Networks wireless solutions.

Utilizing 112 MHz wide channels, cnWave 5G Fixed can provide over 3 Gbps of throughput. In addition, the system can support up to 240 subscribers per sector with a range up to 7 km. The system is designed to operate in urban, suburban, and rural locations.

The Cambium Networks Difference:

Optimized End-to-End for Fixed Wireless Access

  • Benefits from cnMedusa™ world-class MU-MIMO expertise and field-proven performance​
  • Lower cost & complexity solution by targeting FWA only (no mobility)​
  • Optimized to exploit good signal quality & provide high throughput​

Simple to deploy and operate

  • Cambium 5G NR network infrastructure is a simple as 450 Series!​
  • BTS can be stand-alone, no SIM card required on CPE​
  • Mobile operator core network not required

Purpose-built for fixed wireless broadband, key features of the solution include:

  • 5G-NR protocol and frame structure – optimized for fixed wireless to maximize throughput and reduce complexity, but retain the ability to coexist with standards-based products
  • Multi-User MIMO – leveraging Cambium Networks’ industry-leading and field-proven cnMedusa™ Massive MU-MIMO technology that provides up to eight simultaneous data streams to CPEs
  • Beamforming – proven Cambium Networks technology to optimize performance and isolate noise
  • Automated provisioning – to streamline installation and provisioning

cnWave 5G Fixed is the newest technology in Cambium Networks’ wireless fabric portfolio of solutions, including mmWave, LTE, CBRS, MU-MIMO, and indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi 6 – all managed by the cnMaestro system.

Cambium Networks’ 5G Fixed broadband fabric is made up of 28 GHz BTS, tower switches, CPE, Wi-Fi Access Points, planning tools and centralized cloud management:

  • Base Transceiver Station (BTS) – The BTS integrates all functions of a gNB and network core in one box and is optimized for fixed wireless applications. Cambium Networks Software-Defined Radio technology enables future enhancements without requiring replacement or on-site dispatches.
  • Tower Switch – Designed for multi-gigabit fixed wireless broadband network operators, the cnMatrix™ TX series of switches provides a fully integrated switching solution that reduces the number of boxes, simplifies deployment operations while improving network performance.
  • CPE – Extended range CPE with a 35 dBi high gain passive reflector antenna. The CPE supports 24.25 to 29.5 GHz in one SKU, simplifying operations and deployment planning. Deploy rapidly and easily using precise tools for alignment and standard PoE. In future releases, Cambium Networks intends to work with 3rd party CPE manufacturers to enable a selection of 5G Fixed CPEs.
  • Indoor and Outdoor Wi-Fi Access Points – Wi-Fi access points and service provider routers right-sized for any organization. ‘Wire-like’ Gigabit performance with powerful edge services secure the network and enhance the user experience.
  • cnMaestro™ X cloud management – cnMaestro simplifies device management by offering complete network visibility, software upgrades, and zero-touch provisioning. View and perform a full suite of wireless network management functions in real-time. Optimize system availability, maximize throughput, and meet emerging needs of business and residential customers.
  • LINKPlanner and cnHeat™ planning software – Quickly design outdoor and indoor network coverage to reduce deployment cost and time to service. Cambium Networks’ planning software provides highly accurate RF predictions and derivative services that accurately represent the reality of the RF world.
