Cambium Networks launches PTP 810 high capacity wireless backhaul solution


Cambium Networks, a leading provider of wireless broadband solutions for reliable connectivity in any environment, today launched the Cambium PTP 810, on what is the second day of CommunicAsia.

 The new point-to-point (PTP) wireless backhaul solution supports native E1/T1 and native Ethernet and has high capabilities and optimal performance in a single configurable software system. With the addition of the PTP 810 product, Cambium now offers a robust portfolio of carrier-class, high-capacity wireless backhaul solutions covering a broad spectrum of licensed and licensed-exempt bands, and available for both Split-Mount and All-Indoor configurations.
The PTP 810 is designed to meet current and future needs of network communications by providing support for native TDM and Ethernet in a single platform. This hybrid solution enables carriers, utility, public safety and enterprise operators to seamlessly and cost effectively migrate existing TDM traffic to an IP-based Ethernet network. By minimizing the time and expense involved in making this transition, operators now have a powerful and efficient communications system to support new and additional applications such as voice-over-IP, on-demand video and video surveillance. The PTP 810 also features XPIC functionality, enabling operators to double throughput capacity as differentiated data is transmitted simultaneously on both vertical and horizontal polarizations in a single channel.
“Today’s carriers and enterprises look to deliver converged multi-service networks that offer high capacity, availability, reliability and security, with true flexibility,” said Tony Cecchin, vice president of product and business operations at Cambium Networks. “With the PTP 810, Cambium is providing all the key features capabilities users need to meet today’s IP requirements and tomorrow’s communications needs – all within in a neatly packaged, easy-to-maintain platform.”
PTP 810 is built to ensure that evolving networks can benefit from the highest level of feature capabilities available. Key features of PTP 810 include:
• Provides native TDM and Ethernet, software configurable channel bandwidth and modulation
• Operates in the 6 – 38 GHz RF bands and with user-configured channel bandwidths from 7 to 80 MHz 
• Supports ACM, Cross Polarization Interference Cancellation (XPIC) and Ethernet link aggregation 
• Scalable throughput to 700 Mbps (full duplex)
• Supports both T1/E1 and STM-1/OC-3 interfaces
• Supports protected PDH Ring with built in T1/E1 cross point switch
The PTP 810 supports both Split-Mount and All-Indoor architectures, allowing network operators to choose the solution that best accommodates their unique business needs. Whether providing connectivity to long distance locations, backhauling video or providing last-mile access, the PTP 810 provide a smooth migration path for supporting both native Ethernet and native TDM in one platform.
