NGI and Cambium Networks drive wireless broadband across Italy
NGI and Cambium Networks™ strengthened their collaboration to deploy EOLOwave access technology throughout Italy. Working collaboratively, Cambium Networks has already provided NGI with its portfolio of Canopy®Point-to-Multipoint (PMP) solutions, which offer the bandwidth, flexibility, ease of installation, intuitive operation and cost-effectiveness that make high-speed broadband accessible.
The two companies will work together to develop EOLOwave so that it offers ultra-broadband 30 Mb/s speeds, which have been set as a key goal by the European Digital Agenda. The EOLOwave platform has been designed by NGI and Cambium Networks using the PMP 450 infrastructure to further improve efficiency and management related to the uses specifically required by the EOLO network.
With ambitious goals set for the coming years, NGI needed to identify a technology partner which they could work together with to develop a wireless network infrastructure capable of meeting the high connectivity requirements that the EOLO network promises, including performance, scalability, and reliability for data, voice and video services.
Luca Spada, Founder and CEO of NGI, said: "In the coming years we will strengthen our position as a leader by offering innovative solutions and services, capable of adequately responding to the growing needs of the market. Our roadmap requires the presence of a reliable and competent technology partner and Cambium Networks has the expertise required to help us achieve our goals."
"Our relationship with NGI is a genuine partnership with the development of innovative technologies at the heart of it. The fact that Italy’s largest wireless operator has chosen to work with us speaks volumes about the quality of our products and the expertise that we can provide. This is an exciting time for broadband in Europe so we look forward to working together with NGI and providing their customers with the wireless connectivity they need for the future,” added Atul Bhatnagar, president and CEO of Cambium Networks.
