Cambium’s ePMP Network Enables Lnet to Serve Subscribers in Libya

Cambium Networks, a provider of wireless networking solutions globally, announced Lnet has deployed ePMP™ fixed wireless broadband technology to connect more than 60,000 residential, business and enterprise customers in Libya.

The ePMP network comprises more than 1,500 access points (AP) installed on more than 250 tower locations and serves densely populated urban and suburban locations.

Lnet began its deployment of Cambium Networks’ ePMP equipment in 2015 when it replaced a system that could not scale or perform in noisy RF environments. The Lnet deployments are all in relatively densely populated suburban environments.

To succeed, Lnet had to overcome significant challenges and achieve:

  • Higher Capacity – Due to population density the service provider’s towers are located close to each other with an average distance of 1.5 KM between towers. With GPS synchronization and frequency re-use, the ePMP system is able to scale in dense environments, with many APs supporting 120 clients, five times the number possible with the previous solution.
  • Superior Interference Tolerance – Many RF emitters in the urban environment create a high ambient noise level. With ePMP’s smart beamforming antennas and intelligent filtering, the system blocks noise from outside the operating spectrum and uses dynamic filtering to block interference from adjacent channels.
  • Reduced CAPEX – ePMP enables Lnet to support a higher number of subscribers per AP. With less equipment, fewer towers, and lower maintenance it cut its costs.

More details on the Lnet deployment are available in this case study.
