Cambium enters multibillion-dollar Ethernet switching market

Cambium Networks, a leading global provider of wireless networking solutions, announced the availability of cnMatrix Enterprise Switches. 

“Enterprise IT managers, Managed Service Providers (MSP) and Internet Service Providers (ISP) need affordable enterprise-grade solutions that satisfy end users,” said Atul Bhatnagar, President and CEO of Cambium Networks. “cnMatrix enterprise switches and the cnMaestro cloud management system provide simple, secure, cloud-managed, affordable administration of a unified wired/wireless network.”

cnMatrix switches feature:

Policy-Based Automation: Ability to profile devices and automatically configure the switch port based on the defined policy for the device type.

Auto Policy Wipe: Improves security by automatically wiping out dynamic port configuration when the device disconnects.

Network Segmentation: Provides a secure environment for critical network resources by automatically placing devices in the appropriate network segment based on their profile.

Wireless-Aware: Enables policy automation, easy monitoring, and troubleshooting across the unified wired/wireless network.

Site Survivability: Mirrored operating parameters enable full operation when connectivity to the cloud is lost.

Cloud Management: cnMaestro’s free cloud-based management platform provides rich lifecycle management, configuration and control, and security services; which can also be made available with on-premise deployment options.

“Enterprises are looking to manage network complexity with a unified view of the entire network and having common policies across wired and wireless networks,” said Rohit Mehra, Vice President, Network Infrastructure, IDC. 

“Cloud-managed enterprise-grade switching, in conjunction with an enterprise wireless architecture, can deliver a unified access network while reducing the threat of security breaches and improving automation with a policy-based configuration that eliminates error-prone manual configurations.”

According to a recent report by Dell’Oro Group, the Ethernet switching market recorded double-digit growth driven by both data centre as well as campus deployments.

“Cloud-managed cnMatrix switching together with cnPilot Enterprise Wi-Fi solutions provide Intelligent Edge capabilities that improve network performance while reducing the time and cost of deploying and managing a unified wired/wireless network,” said Rad Sethuraman, Vice President of Product Line Management for Cambium Networks. 

“Intelligent Edge solutions bring policy-based automation that simplifies operations and improves security. The network is more resilient to outages and users stay connected.”
