ePMP has set the standard for high-performance, scalability, and reliability in harsh interference environments all at a compelling price. ePMP 2000 is the next-generation Access Point bringing interference tolerance to a whole new level with unique Hypure technology, which combines Intelligent Filtering and Smart Beamforming to deliver new levels of performance in the face of interference.
The ePMP 2000 System consists of high-performance, GPS-Synchronized Access Point (AP) Radio with Intelligent Filtering, a new compact high-performance Sector Antenna, and an optional Smart Antenna.
Intelligent Filtering improves both receive and transmits performance. It protects the network from off-channel interferers with a filter that dynamically moves around the channel. On the transmit side, it protects the RF environment by reducing off-channel transmission noise.
Smart Beamforming drastically reduces the effects of on-channel interference. The System learns the locations of each served Subscriber Module (SM) and forms a narrow beam toward the desired SM while that radio is transmitting in the uplink. This reduces the gain on the uplink for on-channel interferers that are transmitting at an azimuth angle different than the SM, delivering performance gains never before seen.
- Industry-Leading Interference Tolerance: Intelligent Filtering hardens ePMP 2000 to strong off-channel interferers and reduces off-channel noise for better radio co-location. Smart Beamforming with the optional Smart Antenna delivers dramatic performance improvements when dealing with strong co-channel interference.
- Frequency Reuse: GPS Synchronization and Transmit Power Control allow for industry-leading frequency reuse.
- Unmatched Performance and Scalability: With the efficient ePMP MAC protocol and advanced air-fairness scheduler, up to 120 simultaneously active Subscriber Modules can be served without performance degradation.
- Supports up to 120 Subscriber Modules
- Supports a wide frequency range: 5150 - 5970 MHz
- 802.3at compliant 100/1000BaseT Interface
ePMP 2000 Solutions:
So long, interference
Cambium Networks’ ePMP 2000 takes interferencetolerant, high performance, and reliable wireless broadband to a new level with innovative technology and proven, deployed-worldwide equipment, keeping you and your customers happy for an affordable price.
ePMP 2000 is built from the ground up to provide high performance, reliably, in real-world interference-heavy environments. Powered by innovative Hypure™ technology, ePMP 2000 incorporates Smart Beamforming and Intelligent Filtering to help you deliver the services your customers expect in the face of heavy interference.
With the feature-rich ePMP foundation including frequency reuse enabled by GPS Synchronization, eFortify, 120 active subscribers per access point and 200+ Mbps of real-world achievable throughput, ePMP 2000 is designed, built and tested to reliably connect people, places, and things.

With industry-leading tolerance to handle outside interference, Automatic Transmit Power Control to control self-interference, and a proven worldwide ePMP MAC scheduling algorithm, ePMP provides consistent performance, no matter how many subscribers are connected. And thanks to Air Fairness, when one subscriber is performing poorly, it doesn’t drag the rest down.
Take that precious spectrum and multiply it across your network. With frequency reuse enabled by GPS Synchronization, ePMP scales to more customers with less spectrum, letting you expand your business while keeping your customers happy. Deployed worldwide and proven over years, it’s the secret ingredient to a scalable network.
Return on Investment
Many operators find when they deploy a network, as it expands over time, they have to redesign it with new equipment once the number of subscribers reaches a certain point, ruining their return on investment plans. With ePMP, affordable doesn’t mean cheap; build your network to last, from the start.
Configurable Quality of Service for voice, video, and data lets you offer the services your customers want at the level of service they need. Combined with adaptable modes of configuration that let you support many combinations of bandwidth allocation and latency, a network built on ePMP can handle any application.
Wireless networks are insecure, right? Well, they don’t have to be. With 128-bit AES encryption for all data transmitted across the wireless link, L2 and L3 firewall functionality, and secure management interfaces, ePMP won’t be the weak link in your security chain.
By combining highly reliable software, hardware and protocols, ePMP is designed to provide the best service possible for your customers for the long term. Industrial design and industrial-grade components mean your network stays up.
What is Hypure?
ePMP 2000 uses innovative Hypure technology from Cambium Networks. It’s comprised of Smart Beamforming and Intelligent Filtering.
With the optional ePMP 2000 Smart Antenna, Smart Beamforming virtually eliminates the impact of uplink co-channel interference. This has a dramatic effect on the network capacity, with up to 8x uplink throughput increases over ePMP 1000 in real-world conditions. By improving the uplink capacity, overall network performance is substantially increased.
Smart Beamforming dynamically creates a narrow, targeted beam to each subscriber, blocking out interference from other sources.
Built into the ePMP 2000 Access Point, Intelligent Filtering offers up to 20% uplink throughput increases over ePMP 1000 in real-world conditions. By blocking out adjacent channel interference, your network can focus on the signals it wants to hear rather than being distracted by all the noise around them.
Intelligent Filtering creates a dynamic filter, which wraps around the channel in use, shielding it from others.
