Overview Point-to-Point and Point to Multipoint
WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) is a family of wireless communication standards based on the IEEE 802.16 set of standards, which provide multiple physical layer (PHY) and Media Access Control (MAC) options.
The name “WiMAX” was created by the WiMAX Forum, which was formed in June 2001 to promote conformity and interoperability of the standard, including the definition of predefined system profiles for commercial vendors. The forum describes WiMAX as “a standards-based technology enabling the delivery of last mile wireless broadband access as an alternative to cable and DSL. Today we refer to WIMAX Products as Wireless products.
The Cambian Range of products from Case Communications WiMAX products operate at data rates up to 300Mbps and can be used in both point to point and point to multi-point mode.
The PMP 450 platform provides ultra-high performance and cost-effective, fixed wireless broadband connectivity for serious network operators of all sizes.In addition to 5 GHz and 3 GHz, the PMP 450 platform is also available in the 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz unlicensed bands as well as 4.9 GHz. Cambium Networks continues to introduce new PMP 450 hardware models including updated SMs and APs including purpose-built micropop solutions, connectorized and integrated-antenna 2×2 solutions, and point-to-point radios. Because of the software-defined nature of the PMP 450 platform (which is built on an FPGA), innovation and advancement of the platform happens nearly continuously, bringing new features, enhancements and performance with every software release.

PMP 450m Access Point with cnMedusa Technology
The PMP 450m AP is one of the most scalable, highest-capacity and spectrally efficient APs in the industry. cnMedusa is a first-of-its-kind technology in a fixed wireless broadband access platform. The 450m utilizes MU-MIMO technology in a cost-effective solution. The implementation of MU-MIMO coupled with beamforming technology delivers ground breaking spectral efficiency and outstanding performance in high-interference environments.
Combining Adaptive Beamforming and multiple RF chains can result in more than 4X total capacity compared to the standard 2×2 450i AP.
5Ghz FIXED ACCESS POINT
cnMedusa™technology enhances sector capacity by combining a smart beamforming antenna array with multiple RF transmit and receive chains, effectively multiplying available capacity by more than three times.
14 x 14 Multi-user MIMO system on the 5 GHz model allows simultaneous communication to up to seven SMs. 8 x 8 Multi-user MIMO system on the 3 GHz model allows simultaneous communication to up to four SMs.
Leading Edge antenna innovation brings Smart Beamforming to the 450 platform, ZERO RF cables to connect or weatherproof.
PMP 450m 5 GHz delivers >500 Mbps actual throughput in a 20 MHz channel (20+ bps/Hz, and over 40 bps/Hz when deployed in frequency re-use configurations)
