Cambium Networks (NASDAQ: CMBM), a leading global wireless network solutions provider, today announced that Buckeye Mountain, a leading communications solution systems integrator for the rail and intermodal industries, has integrated Cambium Networks fixed wireless and outdoor Wi-Fi technology. in their family of Rapid Deploy connectivity solutions. As ports and rail yards face unprecedented supply chain challenges, reliable communications are of vital importance.
“Our ability to ensure connectivity through our combined solution is the real differentiator,” said Greg Dunnell, director of Buckeye Mountain. “Without the managed, stable and reliable infrastructure provided by Rapid Deploy, their operations would be severely hampered. Our solutions directly contribute to alleviating port congestion and the problems we all face today.
The solution provides a managed and stable wireless infrastructure upon which a vital terminal operating system can rely for connectivity of tablets, devices, vehicle-mounted terminals and IoT devices such as sensors and cameras. video surveillance.
Using fixed wireless technology, ports and train stations deployed high-speed coverage to their facilities within days. A marine port facility found that mobile cellular service did not work properly in an environment where metal containers were constantly being moved and stacked. After deploying Rapid Deploy with fixed wireless and Wi-Fi technologies, they benefited from consistent connectivity and higher data throughput. They are expanding their deployment to cover four additional ports and equip two container ships with the system to improve efficiency in their home port.
Buckeye Mountain offers a unique range of products and services to meet the difficult demands of large-scale wireless networks serving railway stations and ports. Using Cambium Networks embedded technology and solar panels for power, the Rapid Deploy suite of solutions:
• Eliminate the cost and time of excavating power and network connectivity
• Eliminates the need to build high tower assets
• Provides reliable broadband connectivity
“Rapid Deploy was developed for our customers to implement an outdoor wireless network quickly and inexpensively without the need for infrastructure,” said Matthew Hunter, Director of Sales and Operations, Buckeye Mountain. “Its design flexibility and quick implementation eliminates the need to dig power and cable trenches. ”
Fixed wireless and Wi-Fi technologies allow Buckeye Mountain to quickly provide connectivity without spending thousands of dollars on tedious construction for fiber assemblies. For infrastructure, Cambium Networks 60 GHz cnWave ™ fixed wireless technology significantly reduces the cost of providing multi-gigabit service compared to fiber. “When we installed a cnWave 60 GHz fixed wireless infrastructure in San Juan, we achieved 960 Mbps throughput at the V1000 node,” said Steve Hill, director of wireless engineering, Buckeye Mountain. For outdoor Wi-Fi access, Rapid Deploy uses e502 directional 802.11ac Wi-Fi access points that support 256 client associations.
Systems are centrally managed with cnMaestro ™ cloud management to optimize performance. Solutions can also be designed with other options from Cambium Networks’ wireless fabric solutions portfolio including: point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, CBRS, indoor and outdoor W-Fi and narrowband
“Cambium Networks 60 GHz fixed wireless and outdoor Wi-Fi solutions provide cost-effective, multi-gigabit fixed wireless connectivity for stations and ports,” said Atul Bhatnagar, President and CEO of Cambium Networks. “Businesses can now have gigabit connections exactly where they’re needed in days or weeks without disrupting operations. “
