Cambium goes Bluechip with new Australian distribution deal

22 Jun 16

Bluechip Infotech has further strengthened its wireless networking portfolio with its appointment as a distributor of Cambium Networks ePMP and cnPilot Wi-Fi products in Australia in a deal which enables the distributor to provide complete indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi solutions.

Johnson Hsiung, Bluechip Infotech managing director, says the partnership strenghtens the distributor’s already strong wireless networking portfolio and rounds out its offerings.

“Cambium Networks’ ePMP product range provides an excellent addition to the Bluechip Infotech portfolio of products to rapidly connect long distances over several kilometres to high speed broadband, wirelessly,” Bluechip says.

The ePMP portfolio, which uses the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency spectrum, is optimised for outdoor applications. Meanwhile the cnPilot range offers cloud-managed indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi offerings for home, small business and enterprise applications, providing ‘an attractively priced feature-rich Wi-Fi solution’, Bluechip says.

The new offerings can be managed via Cambium’s cnMaestro cloud management application, which offers a single pane of glass for managing both solutions.

Bluechip will focus on providing the Cambium offerings to the retail and education markets across Australia.

Earlier this month Cambium announced the expansion of its ePMP wireless broadband portfolio, with the addition of the ePMP 2000 platform, which operates in the 5GHz band.
