Broadband service providers effectively plan and deliver reliable service and meet FCC reporting requirements

ROLLING PRAIRIES, Illinois., July 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Cambium Networks (NASDAQ: CMBM), a leading global provider of wireless networking solutions, today announced that cnHeat network planning software now enables all fixed wireless broadband service providers to easily respond to Broadband Data Collection (BDC) reporting requirements imposed by the FCC. cnHeat and integrated BDC reporting are manufacturer independent and can be exercised with Cambium Networks fixed wireless broadband infrastructure, as well as other available fixed wireless infrastructure vendor solutions. The platform is of particular benefit to service providers looking to provide reliable fixed wireless connectivity using the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) frequency band under the NTIA Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD).

“Broadband service providers are deploying fixed wireless connectivity to rapidly deliver cost-effective connectivity,” said Scott Imhof, senior vice president of product management and planning. “The accurate insights provided by cnHeat provide an excellent opportunity for broadband service providers in United States to expand their network coverage using PMP 450 technology in the CBRS spectrum while making it easier to meet BEAD program reporting requirements. In addition to CBRS-based networks, cnHeat can be applied to networks using 2 GHz, 5 GHz, 60 GHz, and 28 GHz, including Cambium Networks’ ePMP and cnWave platforms. »

“We’ve been serving thousands of business and residential subscribers with fixed wireless technology for more than 20 years,” said Caleb Wiemanbroadband support specialist at Evertek Wireless in Iowa. “Cambium Networks’ cnHeat improves the efficiency of delivering connectivity to our customers and future growth. End customers will have better connectivity faster and that’s good for everyone.”

The BEAD program defines “reliable broadband service” as broadband service that is shown by broadband data maps to be accessible at a location. Service providers can use cnHeat scheduling software with built-in Automatic Broadband Data Collection (BDC) to submit high-quality data to the FCC and save time and resources meeting the FCC’s semi-annual reporting requirements. FCC.

“Reporting requirements can be a barrier. cnHeat with BDC brings together the reporting data we need and allows our planning team and technicians to accurately plan installations and get them right the first time,” said Kevin SimsWireless Director, GTEK Communications in Portland, TX. “We can quickly expand our coverage and deliver broadband that makes customers happy.”

Service providers can use cnHeat with built-in broadband data collection to provide accurate, 1-meter coverage predictions based on LIDAR data that meet BDC requirements and deliver reliable, consistent service to subscribers. Leveraging Cambium Networks expertise in fixed wireless radio frequency (RF) planning, propagation and modeling and integrated with GIS data down to one-meter accuracy, cnHeat enables network operators to generate highly accurate RF forecasts and deliver reliable service with fixed wireless broadband technology.
