Orion Telekom Selects Cambium Networks ePMP™ For Its IP Television Network Roll-Out
— Serbia’s largest ISP upgrades network to Cambium Networks’ GPS sync solution
ROLLING MEADOWS, Illinois, July 30, Cambium Networks™, a global leading provider of wireless broadband solutions, today announced that it has signed an exclusive multi-year agreement with Orion Telekom to supply wireless broadband network infrastructure. The first ePMP 1000 installations for Orion will support its new IP television service offering.
With over 100,000 residential broadband Internet users, Orion Telekom is the leading private Internet service provider in Serbia and one of the largest in Central and Eastern Europe. Since its inception in 2010, Orion’s customer base and its desire for high-quality VoIP, data and video services has grown beyond what its original network could offer. In Cambium Networks, Orion has found a partner that can quickly, reliably and cost effectively increase network performance and throughput to satisfy its growing market share of enterprise and residential subscribers.
“Due to our planned expansion into IP television services across Orion’s client base, we selected the ePMP 1000 platform to increase network performance. We found its performance characteristics well suited to this service offering and to our network needs, as we grow into larger and denser areas requiring a high-performance solution,” said Slobodan Djinovic, CEO, Orion Telekom.
Since launching ePMP in October 2013, Cambium Networks has continued to evolve the platform with enhanced features and functionality based on direct customer feedback. In May, Cambium announced ePMP’s latest release incorporating eFortify™, which helps customers recognize and react to external interference, and eCommand™, a suite of management tools to plan, provision and monitor the network. Both offer greater visibility and control over network deployment. GPS Sync, a self-interference mitigating technology built into ePMP, allows users to maximize available spectrum and manage up to three times the network capacity of non-sync solutions.
Critical portions of Orion’s existing network will be replaced with Cambium Networks technology; facilitating this migration are Cambium Networks engineers, who will provide Orion with network design, optimization and system integration services.
“As operators in developing communities expand to provide carrier-class services, Cambium Networks’ proven wireless broadband technology allows for operators to easily upgrade their networks and plan for future growth. We are confident that ePMP will afford Orion the right balance of performance and cost effectiveness to continue its expansion in Serbia and beyond,” said Martin de la Serna, vice president sales, EMEA, Cambium Networks.
