Cambium Networks, Frontier Communications deploy wireless network

Cambium Networks said that it supported Frontier Communications in quickly connecting a Mobile Command Center for emergency services at a rural music concert.

The wireless network reliably connected video, audio and data for local police and medical services and vehicles aiding the roughly 20,000 attendees who flocked to a farm in New Haven, Indiana for the one-night-only country music event.

Working within a densely wooded landscape under tight deadlines and high winds, engineers from both companies successfully mounted a Cambium Networks PTP 650 wireless backhaul link on a wooden pole 45 feet above the ground. This was an ideal solution because of the technology´s flexibility and ease of deployment in environments that are not traditionally wireline-friendly.

On the other end of the wireless path, Frontier engineers established a non-penetrating roof mount at their operations center in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Ultimately, the PTP 650 network link extended nearly 10 miles, piercing tall trees and other terrain obstacles to deliver access at a consistent throughput of 60 Mbps. This was an exponentially higher speed than what the city had initially requested in order to connect the Mobile Command Center.
