Cambium Adds eFortify and eCommand Software Solutions to its ePMP Software v2.0

Cambium Networks (News - Alert), a provider of wireless broadband solutions, released its eFortify and eCommand software solutions for its point-to-multipoint solution, the ePMP 1000.  These updates are featured in the ePMP software release 2.0.

ePMP 1000 serves as a fixed wireless access solution that operates in both 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency bands offering a throughput of up to 200 Mbps per AP. The new release for ePMP 1000 will enable users to benefit from greater bandwidth and optimize their system performance even in the presence of external interferences.

Atul Bhanagar CEO of Cambium said, “Whatever challenges our customers are facing, our top priority is to ensure that our networks are easy to run as they scale from network design, provisioning, configuring to full operations.”

The eFortify solution is expected to help customers to recognize and react to external interferences in high noise environments, while eCommand will provide a suite of management tools that help users to plan, provision and monitor the network. Now operators will be able to confidently deploy high performance networks that allow greater visibility and control.

The ePMP 1000 platform can now recognize and react to external interferences owing to the presence of eFortify.  Even in the presence of external interferences, the throughput of an ePMP network gets augmented while the latency is consistent. Network operators can increase the number of subscriber modules without affecting the performance of the system even in environments where there is too much noise and other interferences.

The eCommand suite of management tools includes a capacity planner, spectrum analyzer, and a new network interference tool which is capable of identifying the sources of external interference. It then characterizes the impact of each type of interference on each ePMP node, access point and subscriber module of the network.

The view of the environment around each node provided by the tools empower operators with information about the overall health of their network. This information allows operators to take proactive action and resolve performance issues in the network and keep the network performing optimally even when interferences exist.

Recently Cambium Networks unveiled a new analog telephone adaptor (ATA) to connect analog telephones to a digital voice-over-IP (VoIP) telephone system.
