cnReach™ provides affordable narrowband wireless connectivity for distribution automation, substation switch and circuit control, and SCADA telemetry.

Wireless communications: the key to enabling the Industrial Internet of Things

Cambium Networks cnReach

Maximize industrial IoT efficiency and minimize costs with a private IP network tailored to meet the specific needs of your business. Cambium industrial Internet solutions integrate voice, video, email, and web traffic alongside SCADA data from RTU’s, sensors, and control points - on a single all-IP network featuring centralized end-to-end administration. Narrowband wireless networks are rapidly deployable and enable utilities to connect people and things within operational range. Private wireless networks provide steadfast communications for concurrent applications and maximize connectivity while minimizing cost.

Smart Metering, substation switch and circuit control, SCADA telemetry, remote office connectivity, video surveillance, and asset tracking are all vital wireless connectivity functions that can be consolidated into one cost-effective IP network. Wireless solutions are optimal for critical infrastructure applications because fiber isn’t everywhere, and 3G/4G data services offer fewer essential features at a higher cost.

Maximize efficiency and minimize costs with a private IP wireless network tailored to meet the specific needs of your business. cnReach is available in 700 MHz licensed and 900 MHz licensed/unlicensed spectrum. The platform is also available as an IO Expander that enables any of Cambium’s other broadband products to take advantage of the extensive I/O capabilities that cnReach brings, such as two serial ports, two Ethernet ports and 8 digital/analog IO pins.
