Fixed wireless access (FWA) network specialist Curvalux has agreed a merger with mmWave point-to-multi-point (PTMP) wireless supplier Cambridge Broadband Networks Group (CBNG).
According to the duo, the deal will see CBNG become a subsidiary of Curvalux and will “dramatically multiply the overall value proposition of FWA networks to telecoms carriers and wireless internet service providers”.
South Yorkshire-based Curvalux recently launched a new mulit-beam antenna which is designed to deliver ultrafast broadband speeds over a long range and with low power consumption. The technology has already been adopted in the Philippines, where it will be used to spread faster broadband across rural communities on 7,000 islands
According to ABI research, FWA is the fastest growing residential broadband market segment globally with 5G set to account for 40% of FWA by 2026. After the merger, the duo will look to develop CBNG’s mmWave PTMP wireless products including adding a fully compliant 5G new radio (NR) solution to its portfolio.
Combined with Curvalux’s patented antenna design for FWA, the duo claim they will deliver “smarter solutions for fixed wireless broadband, ensuring an optimal approach to network deployment with an efficient use of spectrum in both licensed and unlicensed bands”.
