Bangalore, January 30, 2014: Leading global provider of wireless broadband solutions Cambium Networks, has  opened a wireless R&D centre in India's Silicon City, to provide wireless research and development and local customer support for India and the Asia Pacific region.
With a number of key customers in the country, including Tata Communications and Gujarat State Government, Cambium Networks’ establishment of this new R&D centre is a strategic move to service the rapidly growing Indian and Asia Pacific market.
Originally part of Motorola Solutions and an independent company since 2011, Cambium Networks develops cost-effective solutions delivering broadband connectivity to underserved or under-connected communities using fixed wireless access technology over unlicensed spectrum.
With the Bangalore R&D centre, Cambium Networks aims to further its market penetration and repeat success in the region, from powering and expanding e-government networks to providing connectivity solutions tailored to service providers’ needs.
Says Atul Bhatnagar, President and CEO, Cambium Networks: “With customers increasingly requiring a degree of customisation of our wireless broadband solutions, and to meet specific needs in a country as diverse as India, we see the need to be close at hand to provide customers with exactly what they require in order to successfully conduct their business. We also plan to benefit from world-class technical talent in India.”
In October 2013, Cambium Networks launched ePMP, a revolutionary wireless access platform for connecting underserved and unconnected global communities. Built on a legacy of field-proven reliability, ePMP is the gold standard for powerful and secure yet affordable wireless broadband communications.
In 2013, Cambium Networks also launched new solutions in its PTP and PMP portfolios. The PMP 450 wireless broadband access solution is a modular design and can support up to 1 Gbps of usable throughput from a single tower location. The PTP 650 is a point-to-point wireless backhaul solution that delivers 450 Mbps in aggregate throughput and operates in frequencies from 4.9 to 6.05 GHz.
The company currently has over four million of its access and backhaul radios deployed in thousands of demanding networks in more than 150 countries. It is headquartered outside Chicago with R&D centres in the U.S., Ashburton, U.K. and Bangalore
