Latest Metnet 60G CPE enhances mmWave Fixed Wireless Access solution, enabling rapid delivery of Gigabit fibre extension to residential and enterprise customers
Cambridge Communication Systems (CCS) Limited unveils its next-generation Metnet 60G CPE, which is optimised to quickly and easily deliver Gigabit fibre extension services – particularly to meet the pent-up data demands of residential customers.
With this latest version release, CCS’s Metnet 60G mmWave Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) solution enables operators and service providers to rapidly deliver Gigabit virtual fibre services to residential and enterprise customers.
The new Metnet CPE has been cost-optimised to meet the business requirements of broadband providers to compete and complement fibre to the home (FTTH) and fibre to the building (FTTB). The new CPE extends CCS’s Metnet 60G self-organising 12Gbps mesh access and backhaul nodes, connecting automatically to the Multipoint mesh network to provide virtual fibre connectivity at customer premises in an easy to deploy, small form factor, and low-cost device. Operating in the unlicensed 60GHz band between 57 and 71GHz, Metnet CPEs deliver up to 1Gbps connectivity into home or businesses. Wall or pole mount options together with PoE ensure Metnet CPEs can be flexibly installed at any location, and electronic beamforming antennas automatically scan and connect to the optimal mesh nodes – resulting in rapid and simple deployment in less than 15 minutes. Metnet SON capabilities delivers advance interference avoidance utilising time, frequency and space diversity to continuously optimise spectral efficiency, traffic routing, performance and radio co-existence – forming flexible self-organising, self-healing networks that deliver higher reliability than Point-to-Multipoint networks.
CCS Executive Chairman Martin Harriman commented: “This latest version of our Metnet 60G CPE enables the delivery of high-performance, high-reliability Gigabit fibre extension services across the widest possible variety of residential and enterprise settings. With this new CPE, CCS is offering a complete mmWave mesh solution that is unmatched in breadth and quality, and which really unlocks the potential for deploying ubiquitous, cost-effective Gigabit Fixed Wireless Access services wherever they are needed.”
CCS Metnet ultra-high capacity 60G product solution consists of 12Gbps multi radio mesh nodes with an all-round multi-radio view, and 1Gbps CPEs to deliver an unrivalled hybrid backhaul and Gigabit fixed wireless access (FWA) solution. Metnet 60G nodes and CPEs connect autonomously to form a flexible mesh network that runs CCS’s advanced self-organising and self-healing SDN software.
