cambium networks lead

Cambium Networks specialises in the development and supply of innovative end-to-end wireless connectivity systems for a wide variety of industrial applications worldwide.

Our solutions are designed to provide water companies with intelligent, scalable and secure Cloud-managed networks that deliver robust communication and connectivity capabilities in the most demanding operating environments.

We are committed to continuous innovation in the fields of wireless access and broadband communication, and our industry-leading solutions have been deployed to provide advanced connectivity across thousands of networks globally.

Scalable Cloud-based communications networks for water operators

Cambium Networks’ state-of-the-art wireless broadband technologies enable service providers, public safety organisations and water utility companies to establish robust communications networks that optimise operations and managerial efficiency.

Our scalable Wi-Fi platforms are managed by user-friendly, Cloud-based software systems and can be supplied in either point-to-point (PTP) or point-to-multipoint (PMP) variants depending on customers’ individual needs and intended application.

Cambium Networks’ high-performance wireless broadband solutions are able to span distances of up to 200km to provide high-speed connectivity to remote areas, while allowing users to manage and control their business Wi-Fi infrastructure with an effective combination of clear end-to-end network visibility and practical actionable analytics.

Customisable wireless broadband technology for water utilities

Cambium Networks’ communications technologies have been specially developed to increase the safety and efficiency of users’ operations and coverage can be tailored to meet the needs of a specific water utility.

Our flexible network solutions can be quickly customised by planners and utility operators to reach urban, suburban and rural locations as required, while providing the necessary security, reliability and throughput to achieve seamless communication capabilities with minimal investment in additional infrastructure.

Cambium Networks platforms are able to effortlessly integrate video, voice and internet communications such as email and web traffic with supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and programmable logic controller (PLC) data gathered from remote stations, sensory units and control points. All information is subsequently combined on one user-friendly, IP-based interface, which is easily managed from a single, centralised, end-to-end view of users’ communication networks for maximum efficiency.

Our easy-to-use platforms offer significant benefits, enabling users to improve service quality and minimise operational costs, while simultaneously reducing security risks, unwanted service downtime and overall maintenance requirements.

Cambium Networks’ solutions are also able to facilitate a site’s migration from legacy communication systems, in addition to allowing operators to consolidate multiple applications under a single network and providing the necessary technological infrastructure to accommodate future expansions.

Reliable point-to-point (PTP) and point-to-multipoint (PMP) connectivity for water networks

Cambium Networks’ 450 platform is a cutting-edge wireless access solution that has been carefully optimised to achieve consistently excellent connection rates, reach, reliability and throughput for industrial networks.

Our 450 system is available in both PTP and PMP configurations depending on clients’ requirements and is intended to offer a practical, revenue-maximising multimedia service capability, while supporting continued growth and expansion.

The 450 solution enables water utility operators to deliver high-speed broadband connectivity for video, voice and data streaming across large service areas, ranging from urban facilities to remote and rural locations.

This versatile platform also supports 3G / 4G mobile data offloading, leased line replacement, smart-grid advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), video surveillance, and traffic monitoring and control operations, addressing a comprehensive range of connection requirements from a single source.

In addition, the PMP 450 solution’s pioneering GPS synchronisation capabilities and ease-of-integration with customers’ existing wireless systems make the platform ideal for applications requiring consistently reliable, high-capacity broadband networks.

Offshore and over-water communication solutions for multi-service networks

Cambium Network’s PTP 820 platform is a powerful microwave backhaul system that combines pioneering networking functionality with industry-leading microwave technologies to provide a next-generation connectivity solution for water utilities worldwide.

Our adaptable PTP 820 series system is designed for modulation across bandwidths above 2048 QAM and is able to support licensed frequency bands from 6GHz-38GHz, which enables a wide selection of configurations to address an all-encompassing range of water sector applications and requirements.

The platform’s high-density nodes and in-built radio components facilitate a high degree of flexibility when switching between split-mount and fully outdoor settings, while its innovative line-of-sight (LoS) and multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) capabilities have been developed to ensure optimum throughput and spectral efficiency during operation.

High-speed data transfer systems for industrial water monitoring

Cambium Networks’ PTP 820 solution enables customers to achieve digital water meter aggregation by leveraging advanced smart metering technology and dependable backhaul communication systems.

Our platform allows users to effortlessly export SCADA and PLC process data via high-speed connectivity, which can be used to facilitate real-time, low-latency monitoring and control of operations across the entire facility.

Operators are able to connect to thousands of individual locations via a sophisticated, highly synchronised network that allows radio frequencies (RF) to be re-used throughout the communication group in order to establish the highest possible connectivity rates in the least amount of space.
