ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., January 26, 2016 — Cambium Networks™, a leading global provider of wireless broadband solutions, today debuted the Quick Deploy Positioner, a device used to initiate rapid connectivity for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint wireless broadband network deployments. The Quick Deploy Positioner automatically establishes wireless high capacity broadband connectivity in less than three minutes without the need for an RF expert to manually align the antenna. By increasing the level of integration, the Quick Deploy Positioner achieves a new level of affordability opening up many new applications and use cases previously unachievable.
This new solution from Cambium meets the needs and requirements of national defense, state and local government, border security, oil and gas, and first responder customers for rapid deployment and automatic positioning in rugged and rapidly evolving environments. In addition to disaster response applications, the Quick Deploy Positioner supports oil and gas operators in rapidly establishing broadband communication networks in oil fields undergoing turn-arounds and relocation of wellheads. The Quick Deploy Positioner is also ideal for Internet service providers looking to quickly deploy temporary networks in rural areas.
