Cambium Networks ePMP Force 180
5 GHz Integrated Radio
Sorry, this product is no longer available, please contact us for a replacement.
The ePMP Force 180 is the second generation of ePMP Integrated Radio Modules. It has the exceptional reliability and quality that users have come to expect from the ePMP Product line and adds some significant performance enhancements.
This radio comes in a small, sleek form factor but delivers high performance. The antenna gain is increased by 3dB to 16 dBi which will provide a 40% increase in range. It comes equipped with a Gigabit Ethernet port so that nothing will limit this product in delivering the maximum throughput. The radio module is powered by PoE and the Ethernet port has the unique capability of being powered from a PoE injector that conforms to standard pinouts or from a PoE injector that conforms to Cambium pinouts. This makes it possible to upgrade existing radio locations to the Force 180 without changing the PoE injector. It also includes an adjustable mounting bracket that eases the task of installing and properly aligning the radio.
All the unique advantages of ePMP software such as eFortify and eCommand are available with the Force 180. eFortify enhances the performance of the ePMP 1000 in high noise environments. eCommand provides a suite of management features and tools to assist network operators in planning, provisioning and monitoring of their network. The ePMP Force 180 Integrated Radio is a compact and powerful platform that can operate as an Access Point, Subscriber Module or PTP radio.
- Growth and Scalability - The ePMP 1000 deliv ers high capacity and reliable connectiv ity right from the start. As a prov ider’s business grows, it can expand its network while ensuring resiliency and increasing profitability.
- Quality of Service (QOS) allows you to confidently offer triple play services –VoIP (Voice over IP), video and data. Providing your customers with excellent service quality ensures their continued loyalty and transforms them into advocates, helping WISPs and enterprises expand theirbusiness.
- Proven Reliability has created an unsurpassed connectivity standard in many industries that depend on fixed wireless broadband. Our products undergo rigorous testing and are made from high-quality components.
- The Cambium Networks ePMP Force 180 delivers provides more than 200 Mbps of real user throughput. Using 2x2 MIMO-OFDM technologies, ePMP deployments achieve industry leading data rates.
- The ePMP Force 180 Integrated Radio can be configured as a Subscriber Module, an unsynchronized Access Point or a Backhaul radio. This radio will function as a client (slave) to an ePMP GPS Synchronized Radio in either a PMP or PTP deployment forming a GPS Synchronized solution.
ePMP 2000 Solutions:
So long, interference
Cambium Networks’ ePMP 2000 takes interferencetolerant, high performance, and reliable wireless broadband to a new level with innovative technology and proven, deployed-worldwide equipment, keeping you and your customers happy for an affordable price.
ePMP 2000 is built from the ground up to provide high performance, reliably, in real-world interference-heavy environments. Powered by innovative Hypure™ technology, ePMP 2000 incorporates Smart Beamforming and Intelligent Filtering to help you deliver the services your customers expect in the face of heavy interference.
With the feature-rich ePMP foundation including frequency reuse enabled by GPS Synchronization, eFortify, 120 active subscribers per access point and 200+ Mbps of real-world achievable throughput, ePMP 2000 is designed, built and tested to reliably connect people, places, and things.
Example Use Cases
Wireless Service Providers (WISPs)
- Rural connectivity
- Municipal connectivity
- Enterprise and campus connectivity
- Wireless video surveillance networks
- Industrial and mining applications
- LAN extension
ePMP encompasses a comprehensive range of subscriber modules, access points, and sector antennas to make sure your network performs at its best, from end-to-end.
Top Line Specifications
- Reliable, consistent performance in real-world conditions
- 5, 10, 20, and 40 MHz channel bandwidths
- 200+ Mbps of real-world throughput
- Up to 120 active subscribers per access point
- Secure over-the-air communications (128-bit AES encryption)
- Industry leading frequency reuse via GPS Synchronization
- Configurable QoS for voice, video, and data

With industry-leading tolerance to handle outside interference, Automatic Transmit Power Control to control self-interference, and a proven worldwide ePMP MAC scheduling algorithm, ePMP provides consistent performance, no matter how many subscribers are connected. And thanks to Air Fairness, when one subscriber is performing poorly, it doesn’t drag the rest down.
Take that precious spectrum and multiply it across your network. With frequency reuse enabled by GPS Synchronization, ePMP scales to more customers with less spectrum, letting you expand your business while keeping your customers happy. Deployed worldwide and proven over years, it’s the secret ingredient to a scalable network.
Return on Investment
Many operators find when they deploy a network, as it expands over time, they have to redesign it with new equipment once the number of subscribers reaches a certain point, ruining their return on investment plans. With ePMP, affordable doesn’t mean cheap; build your network to last, from the start.
Configurable Quality of Service for voice, video, and data lets you offer the services your customers want at the level of service they need. Combined with adaptable modes of configuration that let you support many combinations of bandwidth allocation and latency, a network built on ePMP can handle any application.
Wireless networks are insecure, right? Well, they don’t have to be. With 128-bit AES encryption for all data transmitted across the wireless link, L2 and L3 firewall functionality, and secure management interfaces, ePMP won’t be the weak link in your security chain.
By combining highly reliable software, hardware and protocols, ePMP is designed to provide the best service possible for your customers for the long term. Industrial design and industrial-grade components mean your network stays up.
What is Hypure?
ePMP 2000 uses innovative Hypure technology from Cambium Networks. It’s comprised of Smart Beamforming and Intelligent Filtering.
With the optional ePMP 2000 Smart Antenna, Smart Beamforming virtually eliminates the impact of uplink co-channel interference. This has a dramatic effect on the network capacity, with up to 8x uplink throughput increases over ePMP 1000 in real-world conditions. By improving the uplink capacity, overall network performance is substantially increased.
Smart Beamforming dynamically creates a narrow, targeted beam to each subscriber, blocking out interference from other sources.
Built into the ePMP 2000 Access Point, Intelligent Filtering offers up to 20% uplink throughput increases over ePMP 1000 in real-world conditions. By blocking out adjacent channel interference, your network can focus on the signals it wants to hear rather than being distracted by all the noise around them.
Intelligent Filtering creates a dynamic filter, which wraps around the channel in use, shielding it from others.
