About Cambium Networks

Cambium Networks was created when Motorola Solutions sold the Canopy and Orthogon businesses in 2011. Cambium Networks has evolved the platform and expanded it to three product lines: Point to Point (PTP) (formerly Orthogon), Point to Multipoint (PMP) (formerly Canopy) and ePMP.
The technology competes with WiMAX, LTE and other long range mobile products, but not effectively with wired Internet, which is capable of much faster speeds and does not have wireless relay round trip delay. Competent Canopy implementations such as the Broadband for Rural Nova Scotia initiative however have demonstrated VoIP, gaming and other low latency applications work acceptably over this system, and in areas of challenging weather including high wind conditions (which cause antennas to move and affect connections).

Cambium Networks is a leading global provider of wireless broadband solutions now that connect the unconnected - People, Places and Things. Through its extensive portfolio of reliable, scalable and secure WiFi, fixed wireless broadband point-to-point (PTP) and point-to-multipoint (PMP) platforms; managed by cloud-based software, Cambium Networks makes it possible for service providers; enterprises; governmental and military agencies; oil, gas and utility companies; Internet service providers; and public safety networks to build powerful communications networks, reach users from 200 kilometers across mountain tops down to the last meter to their devices and intelligently manage their infrastructure through end-to-end network visibility and actionable analytics. Headquartered in Rolling Meadows, IL, outside Chicago, and with R&D centers in the U.S.; Ashburton, England.; and Bangalore, India; Cambium Networks sells through a range of trusted global distributors.

Customers choose Cambium Networks solutions over other systems because they "just work" the first time - and don't stop. They understand and value the demands of mission critical communications and deliver solutions that safeguard your vital connectivity.

High-Resiliency IIoT Wireless Communications

Bringing the Promise of a connected world to life

Communications infrastructure is the key to enabling IIoT. Rapidly deployable wireless architecture can cover ranges up to 245 kilometers with end-to-end connectivity for cloud-based applications. Their experience across multiple markets ensures that each solution interoperates with field equipment and operations systems to deliver results that transform your business.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) promise is delivery of real-time monitoring, measurement, and analytics that optimize performance while establishing sustainable competitive advantage. IIoT's true potential will be realized by the transformation of accumulated and real-time data into insightful knowledge and critical actions, which demands highly reliable underlying communications infrastructure and resilient systems that interconnect sensors and controls across large-scale field area networks.

Without end-to-end communications, valuable data is stranded, isolated by even short distances. Cambium Networks' proven wireless solutions can surpass the limitations of fiber or wired systems, providing connectivity from the field sensor to the operation center - in an affordable, ruggedized, sustainable platform that offers rapid deployment, reliability, and security - with an attractive return on investment compared with wired or fiber alternatives.

Smart Metering, substation switch and circuit control, SCADA telemetry, remote office connectivity, video surveillance, and asset tracking are all vital wireless connectivity functions that can be consolidated into one cost-effective IP network. Wireless solutions are optimal for mission critical applications because fiber isn't everywhere, and 3G/4G data services offer fewer essential features at a higher cost.

"We were able to connect the entire system: Narrowband to meters and sensors, and broadband for database and Internet. Communications were running in weeks with equipment and support from Cambium Networks." - Carlos Mena, Technology Leader, Aguakan, Wireless Utility in Mexico

Spectral efficiency

Using the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency spectrum, the ePMP architecture covers major unlicensed global bands, making it the most effective connectivity solution for the world's under- and unconnected.

Powerful capabilities

ePMP 1000 features GPS Synchronization for seamless scalability and minimal self-interference, Quality of Service (QoS) ensures superior consistency and integrity for VoIP (Voice over IP), video and data services - all kept running reliably by rigorously field tested components that minimize service requirements and maximize performance.

ePMP™ 2000 Smart Antenna

ePMP has set the standard for high performance, scalability and reliability in harsh interference environments all at a compelling price. ePMP 2000 is the next generation Access Point bringing interference tolerance to a whole new level with unique HypureTM technology which combines Intelligent Filtering and Smart Beamforming to deliver new levels of performance in the face of interference.

The ePMP 2000 System consists of a high performance, GPS Synchronized Access Point Radio with Intelligent Filtering, a new compact high performance Sector Antenna and an optional Smart Antenna.

Intelligent Filtering improves both receive and transmit performance. It protects the network from off-channel interferers with a filter that dynamically moves around the channel. On the transmit side, it protects the RF environment by reducing off-channel transmission noise.

Smart Beamforming drastically reduces the effects of on-channel interference. The System learns the locations of each served Subscriber Module and forms a narrow beam towards the desired Subscriber Module while that radio is transmitting in the uplink. This reduces the gain on the uplink for on-channel interferers that are transmitting at an azimuth angle different than the Subscriber Module, delivering performance gains never before seen.


Eliminate Uplink Interference: Smart Beamforming delivers dramatic performance improvements when dealing with strong co-channel uplink interference, maximizing network performance.

Consistent Performance in High Interference: By mitigating significant sources of interference, packet loss and retransmissions are kept to a minimum, keeping your network applications working at their best.

Improvement in Uplink and Downlink Performance: By eliminating packet loss and retransmissions resulting from cochannel uplink interference, TCP retransmissions are greatly reduced. Other applications also show significant performance benefits.

ePMP Elevate

Increase performance without replacing installed hardware.

ePMP Elevate is an innovative software solution that empowers 3rd party subscriber hardware with all the performance and scalability benefits of the ePMP platform, when co-installed with an ePMP access point.

ePMP Elevate™ is a software solution that runs on OpenWRT hardware, interoperating with other companies' Access Points and incorporating the entire infrastructure into a more powerful amalgamated system that functions like Cambium Networks' ePMP platform.The beta test was run on a 800 user network across multiple towers, with easy installation: an operator only needs to install one ePMP Access Point and load their deployed subscriber modules with ePMP Elevate software. Ellison describes,

"We added the ePMP AP's to existing locations, uploaded the beta firmware (ePMP Elevate™), and applied the necessary settings. We loaded the firmware on the first CPE (customer-premises equipment) and it connected. Then we reconfigured to our preferred settings, and it was working. Wash, rinse, repeat."

Don't replace your hardware. Elevate it.

Transform your network

ePMP Elevate software solution allows fixed wireless broadband networks to gain the powerful signature capabilities of Cambium Networks' ePMP platform, including frequency reuse enabled by GPS Synchronization and Smart Beamforming, even on non-Cambium 802.11n-based hardware.

The next level of network migration

Saving the cost and time of a total network replacement, an operator simply installs an ePMP Access Point and loads ePMP Elevate software onto their deployed subscriber modules.

Protected investment

With the upgraded features of ePMP Elevate, the life of existing infrastructure is dramatically extended to support revenue-generating applications for years to come.
