With an aim to connect the unconnected, US based Cambium Networks is engaged in an effort to enable wireless broadband connectivity for the rural areas of the country with the help of its ePMP standard for wireless broadband connectivity. The company has showcased its products and solutions at the recently concluded Convergence India 2014.

“In today’s scenario information holds the big key and wireless service providers and enterprises need reliable, high-quality broadband connectivity that can be rapidly deployed and expanded. Our new ePMP solution provides stable coverage across large service areas and enhances your existing infrastructure to a considerable extent,” explained, Roy Wittert, VP Sales and marketing (APAC), Cambium Networks.

Driven by its reliable coverage, globally as well as in India, Point to Point and Point to Multipoint connectivity solutions are ideally placed to cater to the communication needs for segments such as mining, ports, enabling city governance, surveillance and even telecom.

“We are targeting all the above mentioned segments and our radios support an impressive 200+ Mbps throughput to deliver bandwidth-intensive services such as VoIP (Voice over IP), video and data to end users across multiple vertical markets. The ePMP is optimized for outdoor applications, offering connectivity up to 13 miles with one efficient PTP and PMP integrated radio,” he added.

Using the 5 GHz frequency spectrum, the new ePMP architecture covers major unlicensed global bands and is the most effective connectivity solution for the under- and unconnected around the world. When it comes to executing its go to market strategy, Cambium has already put in place partnerships with four focused distributors working in the field of communications.

According to industry experts, India’s wireless broadband market carries a market demand for a little over 3000 radios per month coming from various segments from mining to ports and telecommunications as well. This market of point to point (PtP) and point to multi point (PtMP) radios is being targeted by global players such as RADwin, Alwarion and Proxim as well as India’s very own Shyam Networks.
