PMP 450 – The Ultimate in Point-to-Multipoint Performance
The PMP 450 platform provides ultra-high performance and cost-effective, fixed wireless broadband connectivity for serious network operators of all sizes.
In addition to a highly evolved feature set including GPS synchronization and advanced scheduling algorithms, the PMP 450 platform also features groundbreaking cnMedusa™ technology. cnMedusa provides massive Multi-User MIMO (Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output) capability in a cost-effective PMP solution. This truly leading-edge innovation utilizes not only nearly infinite beamforming patterns in both the uplink and downlink but massive MU-MIMO in each direction as well. Uplink MU-MIMO is something that no standards-based protocol supports today and is a unique feature for the fixed wireless industry. cnMedusa increases capacity per sector by allowing simultaneous data transfer to multiple subscriber modules (SM) within a sector. cnMedusa technology is available on the PMP 450m Access Points (AP) for the 5 GHz and 3 GHz bands around the globe, and it is certified for use in the new CBRS (U.S.) spectrum.
Industry’s flagship PtMP product
Ultimate in scalability & capacity
Extensive feature set including GPS Syncronization for frequency re-use
Versatile platform for wide ranging applications
#1 choice for large and growing network operators
In addition to 5 GHz and 3 GHz, the PMP 450 platform is also available in the 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz unlicensed bands as well as 4.9 GHz. Cambium Networks continues to introduce new PMP 450 hardware models including updated SMs and APs including purpose-built micropop solutions, connectorized and integrated-antenna 2×2 solutions, and point-to-point radios. Because of the software-defined nature of the PMP 450 platform (which is built on an FPGA), innovation and advancement of the platform happens nearly continuously, bringing new features, enhancements and performance with every software release.
The PMP 450 is the choice of serious operators around the globe and enables service providers to deliver higher throughput packages to more subscribers than any competing solution.
PMP 450m Access Point with cnMedusa Technology
The PMP 450m AP is one of the most scalable, highest-capacity and spectrally efficient APs in the industry. cnMedusa is a first-of-its-kind technology in a fixed wireless broadband access platform. The 450m utilizes MU-MIMO technology in a cost-effective solution. The implementation of MU-MIMO coupled with beamforming technology delivers groundbreaking spectral efficiency and outstanding performance in high-interference environments.
“What really sets the Medusa apart is that its pushing almost a Gig capacity and that’s just super spectrally efficient. It’s amazing to see how this product has flipped our industry on its head in terms of allowing us to catch up and surpass a lot of the incumbent providers out there because it does allow you to provide these massive, massive services.” – Nathan Stooke, CEO of Wisper Internet
