New Wireless Tech for Public Safety, First Responders
Cambium Networks Debuts PTP 650, New SUB-6 GHZ Point-To-Point Wireless Broadband Solution
High performance PTP 650 offers greater capacity, security, global spectrum flexibility and richer management services
Cambium Networks™, a global leading provider of wireless broadband solutions, has launched PTP 650, a new sub-6 GHz addition to its field-proven PTP portfolio. The new product's flexibility, high capacity, reliability and security are ideally suited for wireless backhaul applications for public safety and government markets.
This new wireless broadband platform offers throughput up to 450 Mbps, delivers 10 bps/Hz and operates in any frequency between 4.9-6.05 GHz. Through Cambium Networks’ patented technology, Dynamic Spectrum OptimizationTM, PTP 650 achieves maximum reliability through link optimization and offers a wealth of management services. The PTP 650 battles cyber-security threats through its data encryption and secure management features.
This application-rich platform can be leveraged in a variety of networks to suit the needs, in particular, of public safety and government. PTP 650’s spectral flexibility makes it especially appropriate for disaster recovery and emergency services, and communications for special events when spectral agility is of the essence. Its 99.999% reliability, even in the most challenging conditions, also makes PTP 650 an excellent choice for video surveillance. PTP 650 achieves this reliability using 2x2 MIMO-OFDM technologies.
For all markets, PTP 650 assists in seamlessly and cost effectively migrating existing TDM (time division multiplexing) traffic and leased-line services to a private, all-IP-based Ethernet network with support of IPv4/IPv6 dual-stack management. Its technology is software configurable, making PTP 650 networks scalable and flexible for growing network requirements.
PTP 650 is easy for technicians to install and maintain. Even prior to purchase, potential customers can use PTP LINKPlanner, Cambium Networks’ next-generation customized tool for designing and configuring point-to-point links. With LINKPlanner, interested parties can create hypothetical environments based on geography, distance, antenna height, transmit power and other factors to optimize system performance before purchase. With a built-in spectrum analyzer, installation crews can quickly locate available spectrum and troubleshoot the environment as needed. Once online, PTP 650 rapidly adapts to changing field conditions with fast Adaptive Modulation (AMOD), greatly increasing link reliability and efficiency.
PTP 650 is now available on every continent through Cambium Networks’ distributors. For more information, see www.cambiumnetworks.com
