26 February 2019, India:
Wireless networking solutions firm Cambium Networks, announced that they are working with Facebook to build high-speed connectivity solutions using Terragraph.
Terragraph connectivity technology will be embedded in Cambium’s upcoming cnWave™ 60 GHz multi-mode wireless system, bringing high-speed gigabit connectivity to urban areas.
cnWave is the forthcoming member of Cambium’s wireless fabric family of solutions. The 60 GHz (V band) compact form factor cnWave nodes are easily mounted on street furniture and are capable of operating in Point-to-point (PTP), in Point-to-Multipoint (PMP) 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.
Dan Rabinovitsj, Facebook’s vice president of Connectivity, said, “We’re excited to work with Cambium Networks as they develop high-speed connectivity systems based on Terragraph technology. With Terragraph, we’re collaborating with our ecosystem partners to solve the urban bandwidth challenge by enabling operators to deploy cost-effective gigabit wireless networks at scale.”
Atul Bhatnagar, President and CEO of Cambium Networks, said, “Cambium Networks is excited to join Facebook in their mission of bringing new technologies to scale up wireless networks and improve speeds, around the world. We believe multi-mode 60 GHz solutions with the built-in resiliency of Terragraph, will enable rapid, cost-effective last mile connectivity, increasing access network capacities and delivering a much richer application experience for end users.”
Rohit Mehra, Vice President, Network Infrastructure, IDC, said, “Cambium Networks has invested in significant R&D to create 14×14 Multi-user Multiple-input, Multiple-output (MU-MIMO) radio technology, which makes it well positioned to innovate on 60 GHz wireless spectrum. Combining Cambium Networks’ history of wireless innovation and product delivery with Facebook’s Terragraph technology gives customers highly efficient and resilient mesh networks built over a strong foundation of wireless deployments.”
