“Defense communications are mission critical, whether it is in conflict situations or supporting operations in ports and bases. Cambium Networks’ fixed wireless solutions provide the performance and ruggedness that can be counted on to enhance mission critical communications in harsh environments.”

Atul Bhatnagar, president and CEO of Cambium Networks.

In the first half of 2022, Cambium Networks’ solutions have been selected for multiple defense and security programs, including:

  • Naval base communications around the globe, both pier side as well as ship-to-shore
  • Tactical defense programs
  • Border Security projects
  • Multiple international programs, including US supported foreign military sales and direct to Europe, Middle East and Africa projects 

“Cambium Networks has recently achieved notable accreditations on two purpose built fixed wireless broadband network solutions. Defense and national security network operators can now include cnMatrix™ Routing and Switching systems and Microwave Line-of-site (MLoS) Turn-Key Connectivity Kits in their plans.” 

Ryan Peterson, Global Defense and Security Sales Director, Cambium Networks.  

The US Government has granted JF-12 (Joint Frequency Allocation to Equipment Process) spectrum certification to the PTP 78700, an MLoS radio operating in the 7 and 8 GHz band. This accreditation provides defense and security clients extra licensed spectrum to implement MLoS systems as an alternative to the already congested NATO Band 4 and unlicensed 5 GHz channels.

In addition, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) revalidated the PTP 700’s FIPS 140-2 accreditation under certificate #4243. The PTP 700 runs in NATO Band 4, 4.4 – 4.9 GHz, and bridges between 4.9 GHz and 5.875 GHz for a high degree of frequency adaptability. Recent updates to the PTP 700’s embedded dynamic spectrum optimization (DSO) have enhanced its capacity to counter electronic countermeasures such as enemy jamming and interception capabilities.

Cambium Networks’ federal and defense solutions are proven wireless communications for military battlefield, border, garrison and infrastructure applications with the following accreditations:

  • NIST FIPS 140-2 validation 
  • NTIA SPS (Spectrum Planning Subcommittee) certification
  • JF-12 (Joint Frequency Allocation-to-Equipment Process) spectrum certification
  • MIL-STD-810
  • Multiple layers of FIPS-validated security including physical, certificate, and over-the-air-rekey security
  • TAA compliant hardware and ancillary items

Cambium Networks offers a comprehensive suite of hardware, software, and managed solutions that support multi-gigabit connectivity for municipal, enterprise, and service provider applications in addition to federal military, public safety, and national law enforcement. The entire wireless fabric portfolio of Wi-Fi access points, switches, and fixed wireless technologies, all of which are linked by the cnMaestroTM cloud management system, enabling networks to operate efficiently and scale in response to rising demand.
