Cambium Networks announces PTP810
New wireless backhaul solution supports native E1/T1 and native Ethernet
Wireless broadband solutions provider Cambium Networks , has announced the Cambium PTP 810, a new point-to-point (PTP) wireless backhaul solution supporting native E1/T1 and native Ethernet in a single configurable software system.
The PTP 810 is a hybrid solution designed enable carriers, utility, public safety and enterprise operators migrate existing TDM traffic to an IP-based Ethernet network.
According to Cambium Networks, by minimising the time and expense involved in making the transition to an IP-based Ethernet network, operators will now have a more 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, designed to enable operators to double throughput capacity as differentiated data is transmitted simultaneously on both vertical and horizontal polarisations 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 Graham Owen, Regional Sales director MEA and Turkey, 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."
Key features of PTP 810 include that is 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 Polarisation Interference Cancellation (XPIC) and Ethernet link aggregation, features scalable throughput to 700 Mbps (full duplex), supports both T1/E1 and STM-1/OC-3 interfaces and 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.
