VectaStar 2009 product development revealed

Deyan Boyich

VectaStar looks set to finish the year as the most popular point-to-multipoint backhaul solution. We’ve seen outstanding take-up from our customers and this looks set to continue into 2009. From our perspective, we have outsold the competition 2:1 and a lot of this is down to the product roadmap.

“Following a period of market evaluation and consultation with our customers, I am pleased to announce the unveiling of the new VectaStar product roadmap. The success of 2008 has enabled us to continue investment in our product so we can innovate and create to deliver ever more value to customers.

I am confident that the time and resources that the team will put into this new development will ensure that VectaStar leads the way in microwave technology as we move into 2009 and beyond.”

We’d like to take our customers through the roadmap personally, so if you are interested in finding our more details, please contact your Cambridge Broadband Networks representative. Alternatively, email us at or telephone +44 1223 703000 to find out more.
