Going Public 

Wireless internet specialist Cambium Networks, which went public this summer, has spent its summer breaking Chicago's IPO dry spell and adding new wireless technology to its portfolio.

The firm, which works with more than 10,000 customers and close to 6,000 channel partners today, made its debut on the New York Stock Exchange in June. In August, the Rolling Meadows, Ill.-based company acquired Xirrus Wi-Fi products and cloud services from Riverbed Technology, which originally acquired Xirrus in 2017. Wireless mobile data traffic is expected to explode over the next few years, which fits right into Cambium's wheelhouse -- the company specializes in bringing wireless connectivity to users all over the world, including areas that are impossible to reach with a wired connection.

Cambium Networks' CEO Atul Bhatnagar talked to CRN about how his firm has been keeping busy with the addition of new wireless capabilities and how Cambium is already dabbling in emerging wireless technology, like 5G, in a mission to become a leader in the next-generation wireless arena.

What follows are excerpts from our conversation with Bhatnagar.
