Cambium Review

Stable with good performance and an easy initial setup


What is our primary use case?

We use the solution as an internet service provider to the end-user, individual user, for direct collaboration, and in the government offices. 

What is most valuable?

Cambium is really nice. I used to use Ubiquiti and that solution was fine for a while. However, Cambium is better because as they have eEPMP 400. In Africa, you need a low price. You also need to get a lot of customers.

In terms of performance, even in small items, everything is very good.

The initial setup is easy to handle. It's quite simple.

What needs improvement?

The solution isn't as well known in the country. Most people are more familiar with Ubiquiti, and that solution has a lot of other options. 

Pricing isn't ideal and could be improved.

The solution can sometimes be very slow and clunky.

The solution needs to add an LTE solution and/or something in 3.5GHz.

For how long have I used the solution?

I originally started working with the solution in 2014. It's been a number of years now since I was first introduced to the solution.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is quite stable. It's very reliable for our clients. It doesn't crash or freeze. It doesn't seem to have bugs or glitches.

That said, sometimes, for streaming in the country, we have issues. They're just minor. It's not a big problem.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is quite scalable. If a company needs to expand the solution, they should be able to.

How are customer service and technical support?

I've never personally dealt with technical support, therefore I can't speak to their level of service.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We've used Ubiquiti in the past and prefer Cambium over Ubiquiti. There were a lot of problems previously and customers were complaining it wasn't working right, so we had to abandon Ubiquiti. Now the customers seem to be content.

In some cases, we still use Ubiquiti, although it's rare now. We also occasionally use an AT&T PS 300.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is not complex. It's very easy to implement.

The deployment is almost instantaneous. It only takes a minute.

You only need one person to handle deployment and maintenance.

What about the implementation team?

We implement this solution for our clients as a service provider.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution is a bit pricey. There are extra costs, for example, for equipment or hardware that isn't included, such as cables, etc. It's not too expensive, however.

What other advice do I have?

We're a service provider and a customer. We're working with an older version of the product. We have ePMP 2000 and we want to upgrade to 3000, which we will be doing soon. We plan to use the solution into the future.

I'd recommend the solution, and recommend everyone uses PMP.

I'd rate the solution ten out of ten. It's worked very well for us.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
