CCS (Cambridge Communication Systems) is a specialist in self-organising wireless backhaul for small cell, WiFi, CCTV, smart city and enterprise access applications.

Our Metnet system delivers reliable, high performance that dynamically adapts to capacity demands and optimises spectrum usage, is quick to deploy and easily scaled at low cost. Its small, discreet design is ideal for installation on lampposts, sides of buildings and roofs. Based on a unique multipoint-to-multipoint architecture, it delivers high availability and resiliency, with flexibility to handle the deployment challenges at street level.

Metnet enables ad hoc deployment to rapidly improve quality of service in capacity hotspots or coverage not-spots today, while laying the foundations for the change in network architectures anticipated with 5G.
