ePMP 2000 Smart 5 GHz Beam Forming Antenna
Cambium Networks ePMP Product line has set the standard for high performance, scalability and reliability in harsh interference environments all at a compelling price. The ePMP 2000 is the next generation Access Point that brings Interference Tolerance to a whole new level with Cambium’s unique HypureTM Technology which combines Intelligent Filtering and Smart Beamforming. The ePMP 2000 Access Point System consists of a high performance, GPS Synchronized Access Point Radio with Intelligent Filtering, a new compact high performance Access Point Antenna and an optional Smart Beamforming Antenna.
The Intelligent Filtering of the Access Point works for both receive and transmit. It protects any channel from noise from off-channel interferers with a filter that dynamically moves around the channel. On the transmit side, it protects the RF environment by reducing off-channel transmission noise.
The Smart Beamforming capability works to mitigate the effects of on-channel interference. The System learns the locations of each served Subscriber Module and forms a narrow beam towards the desired Subscriber Module while that radio is transmitting in the uplink. This reduces the gain on the uplink for on-channel interferers that are transmitting at an azimuth angle different than the Subscriber Module.
- Reduce Impacts of Uplink Interference: Beamforming algorithms maximize the Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) and Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) of the radio uplink
- Maintain low latency and high throughput in high interference environments: By mitigating the effects of uplink interference, packet retransmissions are kept to a minimum which allows for high throughputs and avoids the extra latency of retransmissions.
- Improvement in both Uplink and Downlink Throughputs: An increase in throughput and reduction in retransmissions on the uplink can also increase downlink throughputs for TCP traffic which relies on efficient transmission of acknowledgements for optimal performance.
