Fixed wireless to play significant role as European Union looks to achieve significant Europe-wide broadband growth

7 March 2013 – Cambium Networks™, a leading provider of IP wireless broadband access and transport solutions, has welcomed the European Union’s decision to acknowledge fixed wireless broadband technology as an enabler for Next Generation Access (NGA).

The news comes as Cambium continues to enable service providers worldwide with high-speed wireless broadband connectivity with its Canopy 450 platform. A fourth-generation (4G) fixed outdoor wireless broadband access solution, the PMP 450 utilises a combination of very high throughput, low latency and GPS synchronisation allowing service providers to rapidly deploy new services and increase revenue and profitability while realising a much faster return on investment.

Faced with ever increasing demand for wireless access, service providers are discovering the rapid deployment capabilities, superior connectivity and reliability of fixed broadband is the solution of choice to quickly scale, especially when compared to the costly and time intensive prospect of expanding wired infrastructures and fiber applications.

“The innovations in broadband speed, capacity and reliability from our team of engineers is driving expansion into new markets, thus furthering Cambium as the vendor of choice for service providers in Europe and across the world,” said Ian Bayly, VP EMEA Sales and Marketing at Cambium Networks

“There is no doubt that Fixed Wireless Broadband is a tremendous solution for NGA requirements and we greatly welcome this acknowledgement for the European Union as they strive to increase broadband availability and speeds right across their 27 member states.”

Cambium further strengthened its European solution offering only last month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, when it unveiled the GIGATOWER™, a new wireless broadband access solution that delivers the industry’s highest level of throughput for enterprises and triple-play service providers worldwide. Based on the Canopy PMP 450 platform, the GIGATOWER enables service providers to further expand capacity to existing customers and offer high capacity broadband to new customers in urban, suburban and rural environments.
