What is ePMP in Broadband Wireless Networks?

What is ePMP in Broadband Wireless Networks?

Technology's biggest concern today is penetrating the topographically challenging areas and upholding them equal to their urban counterparts. But equality is where is such areas lag by the very virtue of their nature: untamed landscapes, tall trees, technological inaccessibility.

In an era where communication has reached outer space, is connectivity network in non-urban regions still a distant dream?

Thankfully, someone is listening.

For the better part of a decade now, we have solutions that connect people, places, and things all over with ePMP long range outdoor broadband bridge for wireless connectivity. For example, our long range P2P wireless bridge kit is designed exclusively to impart better connectivity in "less-reachable" areas. This broadband wifi solution is already taking even the remotest locations in the world by storm.

Definition of ePMP and how it relates to wireless connectivity.

"PMP" stands for Point-to-MultiPoint. "e" in ePMP is what brings the world closer. That "E" stands for equalize, a term that takes our existing Point-to-Multipoint solutions to the next level.

Launched in late 2013, ePMP solutions lay the groundwork for uncompromised wireless broadband connectivity and support in the world's developing community. The highly reliable Point to Multi-Point (PMP) fixed broadband solution products are scalable, and affordable. ePMP makes it immensely easy for citizens in all parts of the world to communicate and access voice, data, and video applications without having to compromise on quality. Be it video surveillance or participating in a national debate or simply getting-in-touch with your loved-ones, ePMP opens doors to a world of possibilities with its state-of-the-art features.

ePMP harnesses the power of the sub 6 GHz frequency band (generally used copiously for wireless communication in rural areas) to facilitate a robust and efficient wireless broadband communication channel. With frequency reuse enabled by GPS Synchronisation, ePMP eliminates all woes caused due to primary and secondary self-interference, a communication bug rampant in rural areas. It skillfully utilizes spectral efficiency to eliminate spectral crunch during peak communication traffic. It combines the dual potential of the ePMP MAC Protocol and the "Air Fairness" Adaptive Scheduler to efficiently utilize resources that exist and deliver highly scalable, consistent performance. In simple terms, this means replacing a legacy technology's multiple PTP infrastructure yielding a maximum of 30 Mbps with a single PMP technology with up to 200 Mbps of throughput.

ePMP technical aspects and details for tech-savvy.

While ePMP's eFortify supplements existing ePMP solutions by maximizing the existing throughput even under increased subscriber base in interference prone-areas, eCommand lays forth a comprehensive suite of network tools to plan, provision, and monitor an existing network. Both these solutions empower network operators to identify the root cause of network hindrance and take appropriate steps to eliminate the performance bottleneck.

As stated previously, ePMP solutions have already been around for quite some time so it is not only in theory that it boasts of all these revolutionary technology shifts.

ePMP Case Studies.

A small town nestling, not more than 1200 residents, Jevisovice set in the heart of Czech Republic needed to step-up its wireless game. More and more subscribers were adding themselves in to the shared network and customers had started experiencing a lag in the throughput with no respite in sight. Equipped with an ePMP 1000 Wireless Access Network, a service provider called Videon stepped in and deployed three APs (Access Points). The result was an extremely satisfied customer based with a better, and high-quality connection at a lower cost compared to the previous services, as confirmed by Ales Nechvatal, Videon's Director of Operations himself.

In another successful story, ePMP helped bring to life Krusnoslav Ivanovic’s visionary idea of providing free WiFi access to Croatia's vast coastline. As CEO of popular city-wide Wi-Fi network provider KRK Sistemi, he knew the kind of expectations he was shouldering and a lot was at stake. Krusnoslav turned to ePMP to cater to his solutions. His initial test for comparison showed a stark difference in performance and he sealed the deal to push for a new deployment strategy for KRK Sistemi. With these, KRK Sistemi was able to overcome the challenge that creating a half-a-mile link over water bodies posed. In fact, an IT customer was so impressed with this that he ended up recommending them to the Local Port Authority which further led them to successfully deploy broadband connectivity solutions on luxury yachts.

On similar lines, a Brazil-based ISP, Via Express Techologia E Telecomunicacao (VETT) used ePMP Elevate System to upgrade their services to cater to rising customer demands without tweaking much of their existing infrastructure. Clearly, enhancing existing network capacity by only replacing existing APs with ePMP seemed nothing short of a miracle for them and they are so impressed that talks to replace all of their existing APs with the ePMP Elavate solution are underway.


Above listed are just a handful of ePMP's many success stories. Much like KRK Sistemi and VETT, network providers and governments across the globe are slowly leading by example and are harnessing the power of ePMP to bring about a connectivity revolution in small and large communities alike.

  • Rural access to high-speed Internet remains a problem and it’s good that there are solutions like Equalize Point-to-MultiPoint (EPMP). Don’t ask me to explain it because it’s beyond my understanding right now. I’m delighted it works though and look forward to seeing if it can reduce the number of areas that lack high-speed Internet access.

  • These acronyms drive me crazy. I saw EPMP and thought of EMP (electromagnetic pulse). I thought this might be some type of hardened system to protect broadband wireless networks from EMP attacks. Still, the concept of improving wireless connections for developing nations is important so they can improve their economic conditions by becoming more competitive with other areas. Sounds like some good work is being done with this ePMP technology. Does it relate to me? Not really, but it was still an interesting story.

  • This sounds like the answer to many Wi-Fi users’ prayers. If you’ve ever lived somewhere remote and screamed in frustration as your Wi-Fi service fades in and out, you know there are areas that are one step shy of being dead zones. That’s why it’s encouraging to read about epmp force and how this is making it easier for people to get the Wi-Fi service people in urban areas enjoy and take for granted. This seems like it will make many people who use Wi-Fi service in remote areas happy again.
