ROLLING MEADOWS, IL -- Cambium Networks is pleased to announce that it is one of the first Wi-Fi vendors to join Facebook’s Express Wi-Fi Certified ecosystem, a program that allows access point manufacturers to build Wi-Fi hardware compatible with Express Wi-Fi. Express Wi-Fi is a solution to help operators and local entrepreneurs offer fast and affordable internet access in public spaces. Express Wi-Fi seeks to help operators provide internet to those who don’t have reliable or affordable access, while at the same time enabling local entrepreneurs to build a business of their own. Express Wi-Fi is currently live in India, Indonesia, Kenya, Nigeria and Tanzania.

Guy Mordecai, Product Lead for Express Wi-Fi at Facebook said: “We’re excited to launch the Express Wi-Fi Certified program and have Cambium Networks as one of our early partners. Through our work with leading Wi-Fi vendors, we hope to expand the Express Wi-Fi ecosystem and accelerate innovation to provide a sustainable business model for fast and affordable Wi-Fi at a meaningful scale.”

Atul Bhatnagar, President and CEO of Cambium Networks, said: “The Express Wi-Fi Certified program is a natural fit for Cambium Networks given our strong history of designing robust wireless networks around the world for more than a decade. In line with our mission of bringing affordable connectivity to the world, we are pleased to collaborate with Facebook by enabling rapid network deployment with our Frictionless Wi-Fi cnPilot enterprise access solution. We look forward to continuing this work and invite the larger technology, finance, government and social empowerment communities to join us in connecting the approximately 3.8 billion unconnected people.”
