LINKPlanner v5.6.0 Now Available

A new release of the LINKPlanner is available from the download site.

The key features of 5.6.0 are:

cnWave 28 GHz

  • Introduced cnWave 28 GHz in LINKPlanner
    • Available in PMP only in 26 and 28 GHz frequency bands

You can now start planning networks using our latest cnWave 28 GHz radios which will be available shortly. To access the cnWave 28 GHz products, go to the PMP side of LINKPlanner and on an Access Point choose either the 26 or 28 GHz frequency band. The choices then work the same as for other Cambium PMP products.


  • Added TX2028RF-P switch

    The TX2028RF-P switch is now available for use on a network site for powering or synchronizing Cambium products and in the BOM Estimator. To choose this switch set the RJ45 Ports to 16 and select the “4 SFP+ plus 8 SFP” Fiber port options.


cnWave 60 GHz

  • Added support for V1000 to V3000 PTP links

    cnWave 60 GHz PTP links can now be created with any of the products at either end of the link.


  • Obsolete 5 GHz North America 11n products (Force 180, 190, 200 and ePMP 2000)

    This only affects the FCC and Canada product SKUs the EU radios and radios for the Rest of the World are still available.

PTP 670/700

  • Added new 5 and 7-8 GHz TAA SP Antennas


  • Reduced the Excess Loss limit on Best Server Analysis for cnWave 28 GHz and cnWave 60 GHz to 0.5 dB for LOS links

    This update will prevent link options being offered which have any significant amount of Excess Loss for the cnWave products. The cnWave products operate in the higher frequency bands and really need to be using line of sight paths.

Bug Fixes

  • Corrected ePTP Max ranges for 2 GHz ePMP and PTP 550 product types

  • Corrected PTP 850 Lower 6 GHz FCC/Canada bandwidth separation for 2+0 links

    Reduced the separation bandwidth to the 29.65 or 59.3 MHz used in the channel plans, rather than the nominal 30/60 MHz shown in the bandwidth selection, which allows more channel combinations for 2+0 links.

  • Removed cnRanger RRH DC Power Cable from 3 GHz BOM

    This cable is not required on the 3 GHz product as it uses a standard power connector.

  • Corrected rounding issue resulting in EIRP warning errors being incorrectly displayed


@Cambium_Rachel is the 26Ghz and 28Ghz radios preliminary or is it final?


It’s preliminary - we missed the flag off the product name.
