Siklu is announcing a new Terminal Unit for its industry-leading PtMP MultiHaul™ series: the MultiHaul™ compact TU (cTU) T201. The self-aligning mmWave radio is ideal for low profile installations anywhere. The cTU condenses MultiHaul rich feature set already deployed in Service Provider and Smart Cities networks, into the smallest mmWave radio in the industry, 6.5x 3.1x 1 in, roughly the size of an iPhone X.
Siklu is introducing an extended frequency range model of its industry-leading EH-600 PtP 60GH series: the EH-614TX. This year both OFCOM in the UK and the FCC in the US have extended the license-exempt V-band spectrum up to 71GHz, for a total of 14GHz. Siklu’s EtherHaul™ 614TX is designed to take advantage of this expansion and operate over the entire 14GHz band with a single SKU. Operating in the upper regions of the 60GHz band allows longer distances, as the oxygen absorption effect centered at 62GHz has minimal impact.
Siklu Inc., the global market leader in mmWave wireless solutions, has awarded Convergint Technologies, a worldwide leader in service-based systems integration, as their Top Security Systems Integrator Partner in North America in 2017-2018. This decision was based upon the successful partnership between the companies over the past 2 years. Siklu’s wireless fiber solutions were chosen by Convergint in a number of video surveillance projects across North America, including University Village in Seattle, the cities of Gardena, Lakewood, Bakersfield and many more.
Siklu announced that its wireless radios have been deployed in the City of Lincoln, United Kingdom. These systems provide 14 high capacity wireless data links in support of a modern IP networked CCTV system, primarily to provide surveillance for the city and public spaces. The new wireless network is part of the Vision 2020 project announced last year. Vision 2020 is a three-year plan to build a Smart City improving the city’s infrastructure, roadways and parks and includes investing in a new transportation hub.
Siklu is extending its gigabit solutions portfolio to offer the breakthrough SmartHaul™Wireless Network Design Engine (WiNDE), which accelerates time to deployment by automating complex mmWave network designs.Siklu’s End-to-End solutions will be showcased at ISC West, Las Vegas, April 11–13, Axis booth #14051. Siklu has long been an industry leader in gigabit wireless connectivity, positioned with the largest choice of Gigabit Wireless Access (GWA) and aggregation radios and delivering up to 10Gbps Full Duplex throughput in PtP and over 2Gbps in PtMP configurations.
Siklu announced that the John Glenn Columbus International Airport in Columbus, Ohio, has deployed mmWave radios from Siklu providing wireless connectivity for a remote building and the airport runway for the purposes of local area network connectivity (LAN, internet, VOIP). The airport, which is the largest passenger airport in central Ohio and second busiest in the state with over 150 flights daily, had a need for a wireless network to connect its Shipping and Receiving Building, which is a detached building located half a mile across the runway.
Siklu announced Smart City deployments based on Siklu’s broad E-band and V-band product portfolio have reached a milestone of 100 cities installed. Smart Cities, which were initially defined as municipalities connecting low data rate sensors for water, gas and more, have been evolving to demand high-capacity connectivity at gigabit-per-second speed. This high-bandwidth network infrastructure is needed to support new applications such as video security, public Wi-Fi backhaul, and private city network deployments. As municipalities move to support an increase in public safety cameras and improved connectivity between public buildings such as police, fire, schools, and libraries, the networks are being upgraded.
Siklu Inc. announced the addition of two senior executives to expand its leadership position in the burgeoning market for Gigabit wireless solutions. David is joining Siklu as VP of Marketing and Product Management after his latest position at Proxim where he held Senior Executive positions. With over 25 years of experience in the telecommunications industry, Gerard Halimi joins Siklu as VP Sales ROW, after his latest position with ECI, where he directed the African Market.
Siklu Inc. announced a new 10 Gigabit per second (Gbps) full duplex wireless solution, EtherHaul™ 8010, which operates over the interference free 70/80GHz bands and provides a reliable fiber extension solution where fiber exists, and greenfield Gigabit connectivity where there may be no fiber at all. The EtherHaul 8010 leverages multiple technical innovations to deliver robust 10Gbps full duplex capacity over longer distances.
Siklu, the market leader in millimeter wave radios, has announced the appointment of Eyal Assa as new CEO of the company. Mr. Assa is a veteran executive with over 20 years of leadership experience in the telecommunications industry. Siklu is a strong participant in the fast-growing 5G fixed wireless access market, which will rely to a great extent on the millimeter wave spectrum.
