-- Rapidly expanding wireless markets in the U.K. and Ireland set to benefit from ePMP,
new high-performance, affordable wireless access platform --
ASHBURTON, England, Nov. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cambium Networks™, a global leading provider of wireless broadband solutions, today announced that Horsebridge Network Systems, a U.K.-based international network and security infrastructure supplier, is the authorized ePMP distributor in the U.K. and Ireland.
Under the Broadband Delivery U.K. (BDUK) programme, £530 million has been invested by the British government to provide the U.K. with "the best broadband network in Europe by 2015." The programme aims to extend high-quality, high-speed connectivity to parts of the country that lack it. The distribution of ePMP – Cambium Networks' revolutionary wireless access platform for connecting underserved global communities – through Horsebridge is a timely solution to helping BDUK reach its connectivity goals.
"With our focus on serving the U.K. rural broadband market and targeting urban 'not spots,' Horsebridge is well positioned to make a significant impact with ePMP in our portfolio. The Horsebridge team is experienced in wireless backhaul and access technologies, and know that ePMP's quality of service and security are rare at its price point," said Geoff Smith, managing director, Horsebridge. "ePMP's scalability, quality and reliability are attractive to our rural and urban customers – frankly, its capabilities make it a good fit for a wide range of our customer base, regardless of environment."
Horsebridge is an award-winning, value-added distributor specialising in a wide range of best-in-class communications and network products that are robust, reliable, easy to use and easy to install. With offices in the United Arab Emirates, Kenya and Malaysia, in addition to its headquarters in the U.K., Horsebridge consistently delivers white-glove network design, development and support services to its customers in over 120 countries spanning Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
Working closely with its customers in virtually every vertical, from private military and government networks to telecom and mobile operators, Horsebridge is a vital part of the product development process for its affiliates like Cambium Networks, as much as it is a partner in sales and marketing.
"We strive to attract partners like Horsebridge and are thrilled to be making a difference in under-connected or unconnected corners of the U.K. and Ireland with ePMP," said Atul Bhatnagar, president and CEO, Cambium Networks. "We expect that ePMP, designed to equalise broadband access across the world, will be used extensively across Ireland and the U.K., particularly in areas qualifying for BDUK funding, and look forward to celebrating come 2015."
