This technology breakthrough enables Cambium to continue to disrupt network cost models by building out a multi-gigabit wireless fabric based on the convergence of Wi-Fi and broadband backhaul.

FREMONT, CA: Leading global provider of wireless networking solutions, Cambium Networks, announced the availability of new solutions based on 60 GHz millimeter wave technology, unleashing the potential of wireless broadband in urban and suburban areas with a multi-gigabit performance that was previously only achievable by fiber. The company's 60 GHz cnWave solution uses Facebook Connectivity's Terragraph technology and Qualcomm Technologies' latest 802.11ay compliant technology to deliver reliable, fiber-like internet speeds at a significantly lower cost of ownership and faster time to market than alternative last-mile wired networks.

"We are one of the few, if not the only wireless company deploying a multi-gigabit wireless fabric," said Cambium President and CEO Atul Bhatnagar. "One of our company's missions is to bridge the digital divide by providing high performance broadband connectivity to underserved communities around the world. Our 60 GHz millimeter wave solution brings expanded, cost-effective access at multi-gigabit wireless speeds to homes and businesses everywhere. With this achievement, we are changing the economics of broadband for urban, suburban, rural, industrial and enterprise environments."

The company's multi-gigabit wireless fabric extends multi-gigabit throughput from Wi-Fi into wide area networks connecting businesses and residences in urban and dense environments. 60 GHz cnWave can also be used as a wireless backhaul to Wi-Fi or other access networks at a fraction of wired networks' cost. This technology breakthrough enables Cambium to continue to disrupt network cost models by building out a multi-gigabit wireless fabric based on the convergence of Wi-Fi and broadband backhaul. Cambium was listed as one of the 20 Most Promising Wireless Technology Solution Providers for 2018 by CIO Review Magazine.

"60 GHz wireless systems represent a breakthrough development that is going to present major opportunities for service providers in terms of ease of deployment and lowering total cost of ownership," said Chris DePuy, Technology Analyst and Founder of 650 Group. "The technology will remove barriers that have slowed down the rollout of high-speed broadband by service providers. With Cambium's entry to the market, it is now positioned to benefit from the fact that 60 GHz systems are an attractive alternative to other fixed solutions currently on the market at a disruptive cost."
