Motorola Solutions shaves off wireless broadband products

14 Nov 11

Two of Motorola Solutions’ wireless broadband products, Orthogon (point to point) and Canopy (point to multipoint) are to be sold under new brand Cambium Networks, after being purchased by private equity organisation Vector Capital.

Phil Bolt, formerly vice president, wireless network solutions for Motorola Solutions, has been appointed president and CEO of Cambium Networks.

"The demand for high-speed connectivity is exploding around the world,” Bolt says.

"As an independent company, Cambium Networks becomes a nimbler, more focused and more aggressive organisation dedicated to helping our customers and partners take full advantage of the continuing growth of wireless broadband.”

Kiwi distributors Connector Systems will be handling both the Motorola Solutions and Cambium Networks brands.
