Federated Wireless will provide service in the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) to Cambium Networks’ fixed wireless broadband customers through a recently signed partnership. The two companies will leverage CBRS to enhance existing networks and introduce new fixed wireless broadband services for residential, enterprise, government and industrial networking applications.
The CBRS’s priority access license rules will allow WISPs to use shared spectrum to expand services and reach. More than 80 WISPs participated in Cambium’s initial commercial deployment proposal submitted in September.
CBRS will allow WISPs and other network operators to expand their usable spectrum capacity from 50 megahertz to 150 megahertz.
Todd Gore, VP sales at Federated Wireless, said. “Our partnership with Cambium Networks enables WISPs to bring wireless services to both urban and rural customers more cost effectively via CBRS, whether or not they secure a PAL license.”
Cambium Networks has announced that the U.S. Air Force has selected its point-to-point (PTP) 45600 high-capacity line-of-sight (HCLOS) radio for its Theater Deployable Communications (TDC PMO) program of record. It’s supported by General Dynamics and will replace its legacy radio frequency module (RFM) backhaul radio with Cambium’s theater-proven, agency-vetted PTP 45600 HCLOS radio to provide reliable and secure voice, video and data functions for deployable warfighters and first response missions anywhere in the world.
The TDC PMO is a communications network that enables Air Force units to transmit information rapidly and securely via wireless, satellite or wireline systems. The TDC PMO program provides the latest commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies in cases that can be rapidly deployed anywhere in the world and tailored to meet specific military contingencies while reducing airlift and manpower requirements. Selected, vetted and tested as part of USAF Electronic Service Center’s (ESC) Innovative Challenge, the PTP 45600 elevates the range and throughput performance for TDC PMO terrestrial communications. The PTP 45600 is the only commercially available broadband wireless fixed network element (F-NE) solution certified on the U.S. Department of Defense DISA UC-APL (i.e., JITC approved). It’s considered the primary wireless transport solution for many theater-deployed situational awareness programs.
The PTP 45600 is designed to support the most stringent requirements possible and provides high connectivity and backhaul even in the most challenging high-interference and non-line-of-sight environments.
“The Air Force’s TDC PMO is an essential communications program that validates our investment to deliver radios that are ideal for national defense and law enforcement,” said Rob Miller, director of federal markets, Cambium Networks.
Cambium Networks has introduced the PTP 810, a point-to-point (PTP) wireless backhaul solution. It supports native E1/T1 and native Ethernet and has high capabilities and optimal performance in a single configurable software system. This hybrid solution enables carriers, utility, public safety and enterprise operators to seamlessly and cost-effectively migrate existing TDM traffic to an IP-based Ethernet network. The PTP 810 supports split-mount and all-indoor architectures, which enables network operators to choose the solution that best accommodates their business needs. The PTP 810 provides native TDM and Ethernet, software-configurable channel bandwidth and modulation and operates in the 6-GHz to 38-GHz RF bands and with user-configured channel bandwidths from 7 MHz to 80 MHz. It also lends support to ACM, cross polarization interference cancellation (XPIC) and Ethernet link aggregation. The hybrid solution is scalable throughput to 700 Mbps (full duplex). It also supports T1/E1 and STM-1/OC-3 interfaces along with protected PDH Ring with built in T1/E1 cross point switch. www.cambiumnetworks.com
