Even though more may become available, the mas- sive and increasing demand for bandwidth is consuming any avail- able spectrum. As a result, network operators have to get the most out of the limited spectrum that they have. Automating the process of monitoring and optimizing links is the best way to accomplish this - and this capability is here now. Cambium Networks has taken a significant step towards realizing this vision with the Dynamic Spectrum Optimization (DSO) feature on the recently launched PTP 650 wireless microwave backhaul solution. DSO automates the process of selecting the most reliable channel among all those available - even in a constant- ly changing RF environment - without impacting the flow of critical business information. The traditional approach to chan- nel optimization requires a network engineer to react to system perfor- mance issues by taking the system down to perform spectrum analysis, causing a system outage for the end user. Oftentimes, this means middle- of-the-night maintenance windows when the environment may be quite different than peak traffic periods and problems are difficult to repro- duce. While the system is down, the radios are put into a spectrum analy- sis mode to collect a snapshot of information about what is happening at that time. Engineers analyze the results, determine the actions to take, make manual configuration changes, and finally restore the net- work to operation to see if they were successful. This laborious monitoring process repeats on a regular ca- dence or on an as-needed basis. With DSO, Cambium Networks has taken a completely different approach. Through this technology, the network self optimizes automati- cally, accurately, and consistently - all without human intervention and impacting the payload data. When an alternate channel is identi- fied that will provide more reliable communications and a higher fade margin, the system automatically jumps to this better channel - again with no impact to customer data. This process is automated, repeat- able, and occurs constantly in real- time, reacting immediately as the environment changes. Of course, the solution lets the network engineers control as much or as little of this process that they want and all the data and configuration changes are stored for later review. Dynamic Spectrum Optimization is just one feature among many that make the new PTP 650 the highest perform- ing, most reliable, most secure, and most versatile sub-6 GHz wireless microwave backhaul product on the market.
