Cambium Networks ePMP 3000
Cambium Networks’ ePMP™ product line has set the standard for high performance, scalability and reliability in harsh interference environments all at a compelling price. The ePMP 3000 is the third generation access point (AP) that carries on the interference tolerance mechanisms from ePMP 2000 but adds the power of Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO). The ePMP 3000 is a 4X4 MU-MIMO access point that can double the throughput at the sector level with the same channel bandwidth by serving two subscribers at the same time.

Cambium Networks’ ePMP product line has set the standard for high performance, scalability and reliability in harsh interference environments, all at a compelling price. The ePMP 3000 Access
Point series is the third generation based on 802.11ac Wave 2 techology. ePMP 3000 Access Points interoperate with Force 300 Subscriber Modules (SM) and supports backward compatiblity. ePMP 3000 Access Points can deliver up to 600 Mbps aggregate to each Force 300 SM. A sophisticated scheduling and QoS engine combined with TDD synchronization allows the ePMP 3000 and 3000L to deliver consistently high-quality service plans to a large number of end users.
All ePMP 3000 Access Points are managed with cnMaestro™, and networks can be planned with LINKPlanner. Both are available from Cambium Networks at no charge.
The flagship product is the ePMP 3000, which can deliver 1.2 Gbps serving 120 or more subscribers. Featuring 4×4 MU-MIMO and dual overlapping sectors, the ePMP 3000 can transmit to two SM’s at the same time. This effectively doubles the capacity of 2×2 systems and in the process, increases link budgets by 3 dB with downlink beamsteering. The ePMP 3000 can be fitted with either a 90º MU-MIMO sector or a 60º MU-MIMO horn antenna. An optional smart uplink beamsteering antenna can be added for additional uplink isolation. For additional interference mitigation, the ePMP 3000 supports dynamic filtering for neighboring channel interference. With TDD synchronization, ePMP 3000 networks can scale to thousands of end users leveraging a small number of channels.
The ePMP 3000L is a 2×2 MIMO Access Point that delivers up to 600 Mbps to as many as 64 end users. The ePMP 3000L supports GPS synchronization for mitigating self-interference and increasing subscriber density. The ePMP 3000L can be deployed with either the 90º MIMO sector antenna or any third-party 2×2 horn, dish or sector antenna.
ePMP 3000 MicroPOP
The ePMP 3000 MicroPOP can be deployed as a complement to the ePMP 3000 or ePMP 3000L for low-density, short-range applications as a hole filler or to inject capacity in a small area. The MicroPOP has an integrated omni antenna but does not support synchronization.
