Cambium Networks, a provider of wireless broadband solutions, today launched PTP 650, a new sub-6 GHz addition to its PTP portfolio. The new product is best suited for wireless backhaul applications for public safety, government, utilities, oil and gas and service provider markets.
"We are testing PTP 650's integration with our existing equipment and are thus far impressed with its quality, performance and versatility," said Jay Boddu, vice president and head of new business incubation, Juniper Networks. "We look forward to working together with Cambium Networks to refine deployment schematics to successfully deploy the PTP 650 to enhance our overall solutions offering."
The 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 Optimization, PTP 650 provides high reliability through link optimization and offers a wide set of management services. The PTP 650 counters cyber-security threats through data encryption and secure management features. This application-rich platform can be leveraged in a variety of networks to suit a wide range of needs:
- Oil and Gas – PTP 650 shines in harsh environments: It is able to transmit up to 120 miles (193 kilometers) over water and desert and from ship to shore, and platform to ship. It is the most reliable NLOS (non-line-of-sight) wireless broadband solution on the market for well field automation.
- Service Providers – PTP 650 allows service providers to respond to market changes and cost effectively capitalize on new opportunities. For cellular networks (cell on wheels, last mile connectivity to macro and metro cells, network diversity for business critical services and disaster recovery) that provide residential and enterprise connectivity, PTP 650's aggregate throughput of up to 450 Mbps reliably delivers uninterrupted voice, video and data connectivity. For spectrum-congested areas, its ability to leverage a variety of channel widths – 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40 and 45 MHz – make PTP 650 adaptable to any environment, from urban to greenfield deployments. With its ability to extend wireless and wire-line networks, PTP 650 helps service providers reach new enterprise customers delivering services like building-to-building or campus-style network connectivity for telemedicine from a hospital to a remote clinic or distance learning at a large university unable to fit all of a course's students in one lecture hall.
- Utilities – With PTP 650, vast amounts of data can be reliably transmitted from densely populated areas to support Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) aggregation sites for smart grid. Substations also require low latency broadband services to improve automation and deliver video surveillance in their networks. As a wireless solution, PTP 650 saves public utility companies the recurring fiber and leased-line fees it would cost to backhaul a network with a wire-line solution.
- 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.
PTP 650 is now available on every continent through Cambium Networks' distributors.
