The Cambium PTP 810 enables seamless and cost-effective migration of existing TDM traffic to an IP-based Ethernet network.

[STORY] Cambium Networks, a worldwide wireless broadband provider, has introduced the Cambium PTP 810.

The point-to-point (PTP) wireless backhaul solution is intended to meet the increasing demand for converged voice, video and data, says Tony Rodrigues, regional sales manager at Cambium Networks. "Service providers and network operators worldwide are transitioning their existing TDM (time-division multiplexing) networks to IP-based systems and extending Ethernet technology across the entire network," he says.

These migrations are intended to lower operational and maintenance costs, while supporting new packet-centric applications, he explains.

"However, migrating from TDM to IP-based Ethernet without experiencing communication interruptions is extremely challenging. The TDM and Ethernet-based systems need to functionally co-exist to enable a seamless migration," continues Rodrigues.

According to Rodrigues, the PTP 810 addresses these challenges by enabling carriers, utility, public safety and enterprise operators to seamlessly and cost-effectively migrate existing TDM traffic to an IP-based Ethernet network.

"By minimising the time and expense involved in making this transition, operators now have a powerful and efficient communications system to support new and additional applications such as VOIP, on-demand video and video surveillance."

The PTP 810 adds to Cambium's portfolio of high-capacity wireless backhaul solutions covering a broad spectrum of licensed and licence-exempt bands. Network operators are able to choose between Split-Mount and All-Indoor configurations in order to adapt the solution to their business needs.

"Whether providing connectivity to long-distance locations, backhauling video or providing last-mile access, the PTP 810 provides a smooth migration path for supporting both native Ethernet and native TDM in one platform," Rodrigues concludes.
