The 3.65 GHz band in North America (3.65-3.70 GHz) is becoming increasingly attractive, al- though it does require non-exclusive licensing with the FCC. The useful- ness of the 3.65 GHz band (lower noise floor and better NLOS perfor- mance than 5 GHz bands) is clear. The good news is that the FCC has recognized this and has published a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM FCC 12-148), with intent to expand the spectrum at 3.65 GHz (proposal is 3.55-3.70 GHz with new rules for interference mitigation). This is welcome news for many wireless operators. Unfortunately, most exist- ing 3.65 GHz products were only designed to operate in the 3.65-3.70 GHz band, with no option to extend the frequency in the future. Cambium Networks is commit- ted to providing high-performance wireless broadband connectivity that is affordable and future proof. Cambium Networks continues to develop its flagship point-to- multipoint (PMP) product, the PMP 450, and has now introduced a 3.65 GHz version. The PMP 450 3.65 GHz platform was designed with the future in mind. In order to support the expansion anticipated by the FCC, the hardware already supports frequencies as low as 3.55 GHz, with only a firmware upgrade neces- sary to allow operation in this band. Being a software-defined proprietary radio, the platform is not constrained by standards and can continue to be enhanced with creative, new features, while performance can be drastically improved as new tech- niques are developed.

Private network operators, ISPs, public safety, oil and gas, utilities, and transportation customers are constantly looking for solutions to minimize expenditure and secure the ease of future growth. Ceragon's FibeAir IP-20C breaks capacity barriers, offering a virtual fiber solution in licensed frequencies, as well as the ability to scale to 2+0 configuration using the software upgrade key only. Its versatility makes it ideal for a wide variety of cost-effective de- ployment scenarios including LTE networks, core network capacity backhaul, hub site aggregation, and low-capacity tail site applica- tions. As a software-defined radio, it can be remotely configured to quadruple capacity (from 50 meters to 1 Gbps), double link distance, and reduce power consumption, thereby enabling significant savings in both CAPEX and OPEX. It is easily and quickly deployable compared with fiber, allowing network operators to more quickly achieve new revenue streams, lower total cost of owner- ship, and ensure long-term peace of mind. FibeAir IP-20C's unique multi- core radio architecture is based on an advanced parallel radio process- ing engine built around Ceragon's in-house baseband modem and RFIC chipsets. The result is superior radio performance with reduced power consumption and form factor (55 watts per 2+0 terminal). Versatility FibeAir IP-20C is the most versatile radio available in the market today. Thanks to its innovative multi-core technology, AES-256 Encryption, and capacity abilities, it can be configured for opt- imized performance in any safe deployment scenario. Double the Capacity FibeAir IP-20C's multi-core technology allows it to start with a single core and provides the option to turn on the second core remotely, instantaneously doubling link capacity either with a single or dual polarization, thus saving 40 percent on upgrade costs and installation work. Double the Link Distance A second core can be utilized to double the link distance. FibeAir IP- 20C splits the bitstream between its cores using Multi-Carrier Adaptive Bandwidth Control, thus lowering the modulation scheme and sig- nificantly increasing system gain (both Tx power and Rx sensitivity). This results in the ability to achieve longer link spans - up to double the distance. Halve the Antenna Size FibeAir IP-20C's superior system gain can be leveraged to reduce antenna size, lowering installation costs significantly. Antenna size reduction of 50 percent can be achieved. Quadruple the Capacity In the 4X4 LOS MIMO config- uration, quadrupling of capacity is achievable using the same channel bandwidth and frequen- cies. A new record in microwave spectral efficiency!
