We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"One could say that Cambium is a scalable solution."
"It's a good product and works well when there is a lot of interference."
"The pricing of the product is very, very reasonable."
"The feature that I really liked is the mesh feature. Currently, we are in quarantine, and the request of home users is that they need to cover the whole house or the whole indoor house. Mesh solution works really nice in Cambium environment. Being able to set up access points in advance is a good feature. It lets you set up the whole environment in your lab or any other place before deploying the access points."
"Technical support has been good."
"What I find valuable is the fact that you don't need to purchase any license. Basically you just get the hardware for the access points, configure an IP and connect it with a switch."
"It is easy to deploy, and it is not that complicated. There are a lot of systems that are very complicated, and they require a special kind of training. Their response is also very slow, especially with the Chinese vendors, but with Cambium, we have not faced any issues. Everything is going well in terms of cooperation from Cambium. We are happy with them, their services, their cooperation, and their quick response. They are just amazing."
"The claim management feature is exceedingly simple."
"The security and the capabilities of the platform are the most valuable features."
"Our most valuable feature involves the 802.11ac, which operates at a very high level and has updated technology."
"It's a reliable solution."
"The most valuable feature is the ease of configuration."
"The technical support we have experienced has been good."
"I think this product could be improved if It were SMS based. If I have a visitor in my office, I'd like to be able to send them the wireless password as a message via SMS, so I don't have to give it out."
"The installation and configuration are a bit complex."
"It has voucher generation. These vouchers are provided to the customers. It would be great if there is a possibility to integrate these vouchers with the system that vendors use to print the receipts. For example, if you go to Starbucks, they provide you a receipt, and in that receipt, you have the code for the Wi-Fi network. I would like some kind of integration or API that can be integrated into any other system for generating such receipts. It would be a really nice feature. It has the cnMaestro portal that normally an integrator sets up. When you deploy this solution to a user, rather than generating a Cambium account, I would like to share this console with the users so that they can at least see the stability of the network and not necessarily trust what I said. It also allows the customers in visualizing the way that they are connecting and the way the network is behaving. I have been in touch with the Cambium team for these features, but they don't yet have the final answer. It is kind of hard to get these solutions immediately. It is a bit challenging to bring these devices to Lima, Peru, or to get Cambium from the distributors. They need to import these devices."
"Pricing tends to be higher than its competitors."
"The installation is difficult."
"The solution needs to add an LTE solution and/or something in 3.5GHz."
"The Cambium user interface and configuration should be improved."
"If they could move from the fixed wireless point to mobile, it will make a big change in the market. The cnPilot coverage should be covering big spaces. It should also have an external antenna, not a built-in antenna."
"Documentation is an area that needs review. It should be more dynamic and it should be easier."
"We found the initial setup to be a bit complex due to the CLI commands."
"The solution could be more stable."
"The pricing of the solution could always be better."
"The prices are high and should be reduced in order to be more competitive."
"When it comes to licensing costs we have been using the Cambium devices on a trial basis."
"I think the pricing is fine for Cambium."
"There are no licensing fees, it's a one-time cost."
"Its price is in the middle range."
"The pricing is good."
"There is a license that is needed for the use of this solution."
"The pricing is based on how much is ordered from the vendor and what type of discount they receive."
"It was a one time fee and there are no costs in addition to this."
