The point-to-point solution based on 802.11ac Wave 2 works in 5 GHz. It meets the needs for Gigabit bandwidth for high-speed backhaul solutions in short- and medium-range applications, providing up to 1.36 Gbps with asymmetric, discontinuous channel aggregation and ARQ in the 5 GHz band. The PTP 550 solution is compatible with point-to-point Cambium Networks products such as the PTP 650/670 and PTP 450i. Each PTP 550 radio is encased in a rugged metal housing with a IP66/67 degree of protection, which protects the radio from extreme conditions and solar radiation.
Thanks to dynamic channel selection, Cambium PTP 550 systems continuously optimize the operating channel, increasing link reliability and performance. In a radio interference environment, the PTP 550 searches for the cleanest frequency source and moves smoothly to it. The customer benefits from the best bandwidth available with limited spectrum in the most demanding environments.
Each channel has an independent bandwidth that provides flexibility in its selection and meets the requirements for address bandwidth. PTP 550 reaches a throughput of 1.36 Gb/s using two 80 MHz channels.
The "e-alignment" interface provides the installer with an accurate and reliable way to install PTP 550.
