About CBNL

Higher capacity, greater flexibility, increased cost savings - the leading licenced point-to-multipoint solution has just got smarter.

Cambridge Broadband Networks (CBNL) is the global market leader in licenced point-to-multipoint (PMP) solutions. 

CBNL's new range of FCC certified PMP solutions offer operators a leading business case of carrier-grade services with unparalleled cost savings.

The result is a rapid ROI and transformation tower capacity of up to 14.4Gb/s.

 

Why choose licensed PMP?

Whether operating a backhaul or enterprise access network, quality of service and capacity are critical to maintain market strength and scale for future growth. 

Too often these crucial parameters have been hindered by the high coss, slow time to market and low capacity of legacy technologies.

VectaStar delivers the optimum balance of price and performance:

  • High capacity: 600Mb/s per link and up to 14.4Gb/s per tower/hub site
  • Range: Up to 20km/12.7m
  • Carrier-grade: Guarenteed carrier-grade services (utilising liscensed spectrum)
  • Fast time to market: Simple and quick deployment compared to fiber or point-to-point wireless
  • Cost  effective: Saves up to 50 percent total cost of ownership compared to fiber and PTP
  • Spectrum: FCC 28GHz platform works in the LMDS A1 and A1/A2 bands
  • Proven deployment: Deployed in over 40 countries, including for seven of the world's largest top ten mobile operators

CBNL Radio Controller

The VectaStar Radio Controller (RC) is an optional indoor unit which adds sector agregation and redundancy for access points within a VectaStar network.

The RC is a flexible, high capactiy platform incorporating programmable high speed logic allowing software upgradability for future performance enhancements and support of current and new network standards. 

The RC supports up to eight APs and can aggregate traffic from up to 240 remote terminals, at one hub, onto one or more interfaces connected to the core network.

Two SFP+ 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GE) ports are also provided for core network interconnection since the total aggregate rate from a full set of sectors may exceed 1Gb/s.
