Cambium Networks, distributed locally by Hills, has announced the availability of new solutions based on 60 GHz millimeter wave technology, delivering multi-gigabit performance previously only achievable using fibre links.

The Cambium Networks 60 GHz cnWave solution uses Terragraph technology and the latest 802.11ay compliant technology by extending multi-gigabit throughput from Wi-Fi 6 into wide area networks connecting businesses and residences in urban and dense environments. 60 GHz cnWave can also be used as wireless backhaul to Wi-Fi or other access networks at a fraction of the cost of 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.”

Cambium’s 60 GHz design architecture is built on the 802.11ay standard for higher capacity and better channel access and mesh support. Coupled with intelligent management software, the new Cambium solution enables a very low total cost of ownership that delivers connectivity at a fraction of the cost of trenching fiber.

60 GHz cnWave delivers symmetrical multi-gigabit performance (up and down) and its compact size means it’s easily mounted on street furniture and is capable of operating in point-to-point, in point-to-multipoint or in efficient mesh modes, for last mile access to subscriber homes, enterprises, multi-dwelling buildings, CCTV networks, public Wi-Fi networks or potentially as backhaul for small cell 4G or 5G network traffic.
