Briefs: Air Force taps Cambium Networks for backhaul

“Cambium’s PTP 45600 is well established in DoD circles, having provided reliable communications for many situation-aware networks that protect the warfighter in theater,” Dan Ayer, vice president, General Dynamics Information Technology, said in a statement.
