Cambium's PTP 450i is a durable 5 GHz point-to-point microwave radio capable of providing data connectivity up to 300 Mbps with very high reliability.
PTP 450i provides industrial grade performance with IP66 / IP67 ingress protection, while maintaining a very reasonable price point. The unit can be set to use any 40 MHz channel within the entire 5 GHz band to achieve in excess of 300 Mbps of real throughput using modulation up to 256QAM and 2x2 MIMO.
With its Motorola legacy and industrial metal enclosure it should be no surprise the unit boasts a working life (MTBF) of over 40 years.
Several variations are available, with the connectorised unit shown. In addition to multiple high gain parabolic options, an integrated 23 dBi unit is also very popular for short-to-medium range links.
Typical hardware pricing for PTP 450i is around AUD$10,000 for the radio pair, high gain parabolic dishes, surge protectors, and cabling.
PTP 450i is part of our daily toolset. It strikes an exceptional compromise between data rate performance and cost - if your application requires a moderate data rate for a reasonable cost look no further.
This unit does exactly what it states and continues to do so unhindered by environmental conditions.
