JAB Broadband Utilizes Cambium GIGATOWER To Meet Subscriber And Growth Demands

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cambium Networksâ„¢ today announced that JAB Broadband, the largest fixed wireless broadband service provider in the U.S., is the first to deploy the Canopy point-to-multipoint (PMP) 450 platform in a 1 Gbps GIGATOWERâ„¢ configuration to support its network upgrade, growth and maintenance initiatives. JAB provides wireless broadband Internet and digital voice telephone services to more than 165,000 residential and business customers across 13 states under five brands, including Digis, Big Dog, Skybeam, Rhino and T6. The company is using the PMP 450 to provide competitive services such as voice, video and data (triple play) nationwide by boosting its connection speeds and network capacity to support subscriber growth with a highly reliable offering.

"JAB's subscriber base has grown constantly over the last seven years. In the past year alone, it has increased by more than 60 percent. The combination of acquisitions and organic customer growth we've experienced, coupled with increasing adoption of streaming video, requires scalable high-capacity, high-speed solutions to satisfy our customers needs," said Bret Westwood, vice president of network operations, JAB Broadband. "The PMP 450 and GIGATOWER configuration allow us to quickly put capacity exactly where we need it. We can service a small neighborhood with a single access point scaling to a GIGATOWER based on success and demand. This flexibility and capacity is key to our system-wide upgrade efforts. Our investment in Cambium's wireless broadband solutions continues to deliver big returns."

With the PMP 450, JAB can provide additional bandwidth to existing customers and expand services to new markets seamlessly and securely at lower costs. The PMP 450 is a software-defined radio designed to deliver the capacity and performance service providers and private network operators require to meet today's demanding and growing need for bandwidth.
