Vertex and OCTOBOX, Together at Last

Not a celebrity power couple, but a union that recognizes we need a better way to simplify network assurance in an increasingly complex world.

The advancement of technology has done great things for society. Today, innovations from autonomous vehicles to advanced pacemakers rely on more than microprocessors and software but the underlying network that seamlessly connects everything together. Yet issues with connectivity – from poor latency to instability under certain scenarios – can have a massive impact on the viability of many critical use cases. For both device manufacturers and service providers, network assurance testing is of paramount importance – but it’s a task that is becoming increasingly complex due to the highly varied array of network types and usage scenarios that must be validated.

This need to simplify and improve these assurance processes is one of the reasons why Spirent and octoScope became a single company last March. Everybody in the industry knows that OCTOBOX is a leading testbed for automated validation of Wi-Fi networks and devices. Even when we were rivals, from an engineer’s standpoint, we could not help admiring the compact yet stackable approach that made it easy to create a robust testbed suited to a wide variety of scenarios.

However, as Spirent, before we joined forces, we still had many joint customers that needed to perform more specialist assurance scenarios that were not well suited to OCTOBOX. Especially for granular channel emulation or for use cases where complex mobility was involved. For these customers, it meant potentially setting up dual test beds running Spirent and OCTOBOX products for very different workloads. This also required integrating these disparate solutions and then trying to tie the data together into a coherent set of results. Not an impossible task but far from ideal.

Two heads…

In a world getting more complex, this highlights one of the fundamental benefits of our union – the ability to create new products that combine our expertise and technologies into a better overall solution. A coherent approach that is not only easier to use but also more suited to the diversity of use cases that we are all seeing across our modern society. It has been nearly a year of intense engineering work, but the first fruits of that vision have ripened. We are proud to announce the launch of an integrated solution that combines the modular nature of OCTOBOX with Vertex, our channel emulator able to replicate the comprehensive noise and spatial conditions of even the most complex wireless channels.

In simple terms, we now have a solution that combines best in class traffic emulation, channel emulation and performance evaluation into an integrated platform. And this arrives at a time where we are seeing an explosion in new devices like wearables and industrial IoT along with a major shift due to the emergence of 5G that will spawn new use cases that will really push legacy testing methodologies. No matter the vertical market, we are all being forced to answer new questions: How will this device work on an airplane’s Wi-Fi network from take-off to landing? What happens if a medical device loses connection as it’s being moved between hospital wards? What impact will load have on network latency for a particular sensor used on a busy factory production line? Can an autonomous vehicle seamlessly move between 5G and Wi-Fi based control without incident? We could ask pages and pages of questions like these that need to be answered before innovation can go from the drawing board to real world application!

Keep it simple

There are literally hundreds of scenarios where the answers will not just impact physical product design, but also have a ripple effect on device placement and day-to-day operating procedures. Making it easier to simulate these scenarios, gain answers and then adapt to change is fundamentally important for everybody concerned with test and assurance.

Even with our integrated OCTOBOX / Vertex solution now heading out into the field for real world use, this ongoing strategy to overcome complexity will continue. Other ways in which we can integrate the best of octoScope and third-party technologies into better solutions continues within our R&D teams. It must, because we know that the world will always find new ways to blend technology and connectivity to create amazing ideas. Hopefully, we can equip the people who make sure these things work in the real world with the right tools to get this vital job done efficiently and accurately with simple-to-use platforms.

WI-FI IN THE 6 GHZ BAND

Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi 6 on pristine 6 GHz spectrum, will boost Wi-Fi speeds by at least a factor of four and capacities by even more with latencies as low as 2 milliseconds. This constitutes a paradigm shift in connectivity.

Wi-Fi 6 is in itself a big quality and data rate improvement over existing Wi-Fi services, most of which currently are still based on the Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac, 5 GHz services) or even Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n, 2.4 GHz) legacy standards. Now add to this Wi-Fi 6E, an opportunity for the new standard to operate in the pristine 6 GHz band. The connectivity experience will improve by an order of magnitude in speed and quality.

It is also well documented that the rate of market penetration and rollout of both devices and access points supporting the Wi-Fi 6 standard has thus far well exceeded the pace of all previous standards. Within a couple of years, industry analysts expect the vast majority of enterprise-grade Wi-Fi access points to be Wi-Fi 6 capable.

WI-FI 6E TRIPLES THE AVAILABLE BAND FOR WI-FI
The 6 GHz Wi-Fi story is recent – and the date April 23, 2020, will be forever etched into the annals of wireless and technology history. On this date, the commissioners of US telecom regulator FCC (Federal Communications Commission) voted unanimously five to zero in favor of releasing 1.2 GHz of pristine 6 GHz spectrum to Wi-Fi.

Since then, several other countries have followed suit. It is largely expected that most countries in the world will release some parts of the 6 GHz band as unlicensed spectrum in the course of the next few years. In the US the full 6 GHz band (including a section of band extending into 7 GHz) can already be used for indoor Wi-Fi services (for so-called Low Power Indoor or LPI services).

The huge new band allocation more than triples available Wi-Fi band in the US and will close to double available bands within the EU. In the US a total of seven 160 MHz-wide Wi-Fi channels will be available, while in Europe that number will be three (see the channel allocation table below). This means that Wi-Fi devices – including smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc. – will soon be operating at multiple gigabits per second of speed over Wi-Fi.

FREE FROM INTERFERENCE FROM LEGACY WI-FI
One important aspect of Wi-Fi 6 in the 6 GHz band – dubbed Wi-Fi 6E by the Wi-Fi Alliance – is that only Wi-Fi 6E is certified to operate in the said spectrum and hence no legacy Wi-Fi systems will be around to generate interference within the new band. The quality of 6 GHz Wi-Fi services will therefore likely be close to that of cellular – except several multiples faster than most current wide-area coverage 5G data rates, with the exception of localized and outdoor mmWave-based 5G.

The interference-free 160 MHz channels in Wi-Fi 6E means that smartphones and other mobile devices will be able to operate at peak theoretical speeds of more than 2 Gbps or – says chipset maker Broadcom – up to 1.4 Gbps at a distance of 7 meters non-line-of-sight from a Wi-Fi 6E access point.

In new enterprise deployments the adage ‘eighty is the new twenty’ will apply for Wi-Fi 6E: Standard 6 GHz Wi-Fi deployments will use 80 MHz channels instead of the usual 20 MHz channels applied today. This is because permitted power levels (in the US) are defined in such a way that there is no penalty for using wider channels and hence no real reason not to use them. As a result, average enterprise Wi-Fi data rates will be at least quadrupled.

Wi-Fi 6E technology will in addition deliver latencies as low as 2 milliseconds, which – as a starting point – will enable much more responsive and ‘immersive’ connectivity experiences, initially for gaming, fast video conferencing, AR/VR, and more and eventually for innovative new wireless enterprise applications.

In summary: Based on 480 MHz to 1200 MHz of new unlicensed (free) spectrum, Wi-Fi 6E will, depending on country-specific regulations, deliver multi-gigabit Wi-Fi speeds and capacities that by a wide margin will outperform current cellular systems indoors. And now – for the first time in Wi-Fi history – the application of Wi-Fi 6 and 6E technology using OFDMA, means the quality of Wi-Fi services will be similar to that of cellular.

Broadband service provider delivers high speed tiered services to residential subscribers with a combination of fiber core and 60 GHz millimeter wave fixed wireless broadband.

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., Mar 22, 2022 – Cambium Networks’ (NASDAQ: CMBM) 60 GHz millimeter wave fixed wireless broadband enables broadband service providers to deliver multi-gigabit access with faster time to service than trenching fiber. With hybrid fiber and 60 GHz cnWave™ fixed wireless technologies Desert iNET, a leading broadband service provider in Scottsdale, Arizona is rapidly expanding by delighting customers with “the most reliable and customer friendly high speed service.”

Subscriber Stephen L. described his experience: “Desert iNET recently upgraded us to a Gigabit by Gigabit service on their new technology, and my boys are over the moon!  I had the house wired for ethernet and now their ping to the Fortnite servers is 2 ms, and speeds are 918 Mbps by 930 Mbps symmetrical!”

Desert iNET 60 GHz cnWave Fixed Wireless Speed Test

Cambium Networks cnWave platform exploits the 60 GHz spectrum and 802.11ay standard to eliminate the wait for last mile fiber, at a fraction of the cost. The system uses Terragraph meshing technology, beam steering, software defined radios, and centralized cloud management. Conventional wisdom says that FTTH is the only way to achieve gigabit broadband to the home.  Desert iNet is proving that’s not the case. The wireless fabric from Cambium Networks makes it easy to plan, deploy, and manage affordable Gigabit speeds to the home.

“It’s every bit as fast as fiber,” said Jeff Hardesty, Vice President and co-founder, Desert iNET. “With 60 GHz cnWave, we can now offer Gigabit download and 100 Mbps uplink, or greater, speeds for streaming video conferencing, and business applications in addition to gaming, Netflix and other entertainment services.”

Desert iNET is onboarding more than 15 customers per week to the 60 GHz cnWave enabled network. Using meshing technology, they are able to leverage selected residences as host sites for the V5000 cnWave Distribution Nodes (DN) and then connect V3000 or V1000 cnWave Client Nodes (CN) at other locations. The relay points are hardened and the efficient mesh provides redundancy so that the subscribers have continuity of service should a relay point fail.

“Broadband service providers are deploying Gigabit speed connectivity quickly,” said Atul Bhatnagar, president and CEO of Cambium Networks. “Millimeter wave is the exciting tip of the iceberg. Service providers also depend on the essential infrastructure underneath – Cambium Networks’ wireless fabric which includes includes planning tools, managementswitchingWi-Fi 6 access points, and support options.”

Connectivity solution delivered by Future Technologies improves elder care and enables digital transformation while keeping costs under control

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., March 16, 2022 – Cambium Networks (NASDAQ: CMBM) enterprise networking solutions enable elder care facilities to provide excellent care in the nursing shortage and enable further efficiencies from digital transformation initiatives. The Villas of Holmdel provides human-centered, accessible and affordable care for assisted living residents. With Wi-Fi 6 access points (AP), cnMatrix™ switches and centralized cloud management from Cambium Networks, designed and deployed by Future Technologies, Inc., the 130,000-square-foot assisted living facility achieves excellence in care and is paving the way for future digital transformation initiatives while minimizing total cost of ownership.

Villas of Holmdel improves elder care with Wi-Fi 6 connectivity

Residents want the ability to connect with friends and family, and elder care operations managers need reliable Wi-Fi at reasonable costs. At the same time, challenges such as the ongoing shortage of nurses and caregivers, inflation driving costs higher, and lingering COVID issues are putting a strain on facilities to provide security and comfort with fewer staff.

The Villas of Holmdel, one of Hackensack Meridian Health’s newest assisted living facilities in New Jersey, is comprised of 110 rooms, 15 office rooms, a dining area, an indoor pool and other amenities. Campus-wide Wi-Fi coverage and high performance were essential for the Villas since residents and staff required higher density and capacity, especially at high-traffic, high-density nursing stations.

“Wi-Fi 6 connectivity enables our residents and nurses to do more than they could before,” said Walt Gant, Director, Hackensack Meridian Health. “They can now stay connected throughout the facility, and we’re able to focus on our core business. It will pave the way for us to do more for our residents in the future.”

Future Technologies Venture, LLC., which planned the network design and served as lead system integrator, deployed Cambium Networks’ XV2-2 and XV3-8 Wi-Fi 6 APs and EX2052-P switches to handle an uptick in simultaneous video streams, as well as an increasing number of concurrent network users. The Cambium Networks solution will also enable future IoT initiatives, such as sensors, controls and potentially robotics. These future initiatives include robots for cleaning floors, delivering items to residents and remote patient monitoring – a critical need at elder care/memory care facilities.

“With the Cambium Networks solution, we were able to offer complete coverage and capacity with 64 access points – immediately reducing the hardware and associated installation costs by one third. Being able to reduce the total access point count by 35% and having a single pane of glass to manage the system really made a big difference in meeting these needs,” said Peter Cappiello, CEO, Future Technologies. “We considered other options, but they couldn’t provide the end-to-end solution portfolio capabilities we required to meet the technical and commercial requirements of The Villas.”

The deployment of Cambium Networks’ Wi-Fi 6 APs and switches are managed under the cnMaestro™ wireless network management system. The entire network is monitored and managed from one screen and the service comes at zero operating expense. Future Tech designed the solution so the facility can self-maintain.

“Care facilities need a communications network that must be seamless, reliable and easy to manage so that the primary focus is on patient care,” said Atul Bhatnagar, president and CEO of Cambium Networks. “Working with our partner Future Technologies, we were able to equip The Villas with great connectivity at an attractive total cost, enabling them to focus on providing excellent care at a time of significant nursing shortage and skyrocketing inflation.”

In a recent ranking of Wi-Fi 6 access points, the Tolly Group, an independent testing analysis organization, concluded that Cambium Networks’ products outperformed competitors Aruba, Meraki (Cisco) and Ruckus in terms of performance and total cost of ownership. What’s more, Cambium Networks’ Wi-Fi solutions are certified and proven for healthcare applications
