Cambium is the first to market with its ePMP™ Force 400 series point-to-point solutions, delivering up to 1 Gbps throughput at a breakthrough price point.

The ePMP Force 400 is available in two variations:

  • Force 425 – equipped with a 25 dBi integrated dish antenna

  • Force 400C – connectorised with two RP-SMA RF interfaces for dish or horn antennas.

“The ePMP Force 400 series is an amazing upgrade from the previous generation and the very first 802.11ax based optimised fixed wireless solution in the industry,” says Teresa Huysamen, Wireless BU Executive at Duxbury Networking, local distributors of Cambium technology. “It provides fantastic spectral efficiency, the hardware is unmatched, and you get to use the ePMP software and management you’ve been comfortable with for several years. The ePMP Force 400 series also opens up numerous opportunities to leverage sub 6 GHz unlicensed spectrum in an affordable manner for various point-to-point applications.”

Network operators can extend coverage with cost-effective backhaul for enterprise access, fibre extensions, Wi-Fi access or CCTV networks with the ePMP Force 400’s flexible hardware design,

80 MHz channel support and improved over-the-air efficiencies providing up to 1 Gbps speed. The ePMP Force 400 series is ideal for service providers looking to deliver high-capacity access services to residential and business customers. It also serves as a low-cost backhaul for MicroPoPs and outdoor Wi-Fi access points that require high capacity at moderate range without the overhead of licensed microwave.

With an integrated Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) port and optional Gigabit Passive Optical Networks (GPON) Optical Network Unit (ONU) module, it also makes a great fibre extension to reach places where fibre costs cannot be justified.

The Force 400 Series delivers up to 1 Gbps performance with less than 5ms latency. It has enterprise-grade security with 128-bit AES over-the-air encryption (256-bit AES where export rules allow), secure management interfaces (HTTPS and SNMPv3) with roles-based authentication and standards-based device authentication including RADIUS support.


The Force 425 has an integrated 25 dBi dish and pushes the capacity even further with the optional 28 dBi range extender. The innovative optional range extender attachment adds 6 dBi of gain without installing a completely new dish. “It is ordered separately and can be assembled and attached in the field to add additional link budget and fade margin for challenging links or to move to higher capacity, where needed, and higher modulations, where achievable. For even longer-range applications, the Force 400C is a connectorised option with two RP-SMA RF interfaces for use with larger parabolic dishes or horn antennas,” Huysamen points out.

“Cambium Networks listens to service providers and enterprise network operators and is pushing the envelope to develop affordable gigabit wireless solutions that deliver a low total cost of ownership,” says Huysamen. “The ePMP Force 400 series, leveraging a leading 802.11ax technology platform from Qualcomm Technologies Inc., builds on top of the field-proven ePMP fixed wireless architecture, and expands fixed wireless broadband capability without the overhead of licensed spectrum.”

The new radios support LINKPlanner™ planning software, cnHeat™ heatmapping modelling tool, and the cnMaestro™ management system. The radios are IP67 rated for rugged outdoor environments.

“The ePMP Force 400 series provides high-capacity backhaul at a great price point,” says Huysamen.
