Prologix Distribution, the preferred distributor for Cambium Networks™ in the Middle East and Africa (MEA), today announced the introduction of PTP 650 - a reliable, hi-capacity, point-to-point wireless broadband designed for multi-service network. The extremely cost effective PTP 650 is slated to be a game-changer in the world of point-to-point wireless solutions, with its remarkably high output power and throughput and market-leading spectral efficiency and NLOS performance.
The highly capable wireless connectivity product can deliver up to 99.999% availability in virtually any environment, including non-line-of-sight, long-distance line-of-sight, high interference, over water and desert, and through extreme weather conditions.
Prologix Distribution has witnessed a growing regional interest in wireless connectivity solutions. “For years, Middle East enterprises and service providers have been looking for a point-to-point solution which would provide them high output power, long range, wide band and multi-channel bandwidth. The output power of PTP 650 is almost double that of its predecessor and the closest competitor in the market,” said Aditya Sahaya, Director-Business Development at Prologix. He feels that with features like 27 dBm output power, 4.9-6.05 GHz wide band, 450 Mbps throughput and up to 200 km LOS range, the new solution can more than fulfill what industry users have been seeking.
“From the reception and feedback we received during our participation at GITEX 2013 it is abundantly clear that public and private sector organizations in the MEA region see wireless as a vital component of their networks- especially for last mile backhaul. The performance, reliability and extremely competitive pricing of the PTP 650 solution make it ideally suited to meet regional demands. We are well aware of the market potential for Cambium's range of solutions which is why we have aggressively ramped up our technical and sales capabilities in these technologies”, Mr. Sahaya said.
Prologix intends to work closely with Service Providers, Government, Defence and Security agencies, Law Enforcing agencies and private enterprises such as Utility companies, Oil and Gas companies, and Healthcare agencies across the region to implement wireless networks that incorporate the PTP 650 solution. The Value Added Distributor has strong technical expertise clubbed with deep industry knowledge, and will ensure that through trainings, its channel partners and customers will attain an equal level of familiarity and expertise in these solutions. These will be carried out by highly trained engineers who have been certified by the vendor.
Cambium Networks' PTP 650 offers massive scalability along with improved collocation and Digital Spectrum Optimization (DSO) with an in-band/on-line spectrum analyzer. Mr. Sahaya believes that the solutions’ ability to overcome challenges posed by signal transmission over water and desert will be key to its uptake in the region. These features combined with the cost effectiveness make the PTP 650 system an ideal solution for a wide array of applications such as T1/E1 and fiber replacements or extensions, video surveillance backhaul, LTE, macro-cell, and small-cell backhaul, last mile access, disaster recovery, network redundancy and building-to-building and campus connectivity.
Graham Owen, Regional Sales Director, Middle East & Africa at Cambium Networks said,“The PTP 650 solution is a revolutionary product that will rapidly drive wireless connectivity in the region. With double the output power of its predecessors and performance that is vastly superior to even its nearest competitors, PTP 650 is a solution that allows organizations to meet even the most demanding non-line-of-sight connectivity challenges without breaking the bank.”
