AeroNet, one of Puerto Rico’s leading service providers, was using Siklu’s MultiHaul™, a point-to-multipoint 60GHz radio, to deliver business broadband in Old San Juan before two back-to-back hurricanes devastated the island. The storms wiped out much of the fiber and wireless infrastructure, but the MultiHaul™survived both storms intact.
Siklu announced that its MultiHaul™ auto-aligned radios, were selected by the City of Wichita to provide the wireless connectivity for 72 fixed bullet, dome and PTZ cameras from Axis Communication which make up the surveillance network deployed in the city’s Old Town district.
There are close to 126 million households in the US, out of which 106 million have some form of broadband. FCC reports have found that about three-quarters of the country’s developed census blocks lack any high-speed broadband choice. Moreover, only a very small fraction of those households has access to 21th century broadband above 100 Mbps which is required to empower users with the emerging applications in the connected home including 4K and 8K televisions, virtual reality, IoT, and the proliferation of user devices. In other words, homes are rapidly becoming high density wireless environments which require way beyond 25 Mbps connectivity.

You might be thinking that the only way to speed up hybrid fiber-wireless networks is to expand the capacity of the wireless link. It turns out that’s just one option. A consortium of innovative thinkers from academia, equipment, and service providers has joined to eliminate another speed throttling part of the network, the termination unit or mux/demux. In January 2017, the IPHOBAC-NG consortium delivered optical 2.5 Gbit/s GPON over millimeter wave wireless without using any termination or mux/demux units between the fiber and wireless networks. They did this by developing photonic to millimeter-wave converter, which speeds up the network, simplifies networking, and lowers costs by eliminating the termination units.
Siklu Inc., the global market leader in millimeter-wave solutions, announced that it has been selected by the City of Cambridge, England, to provide wireless connectivity for the city’s CCTV surveillance system in its town centre.

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.
Who would you expect such a reaction from? Probably a rich, techie tycoon or at the very least a gaming geek? As a vendor that serves many ISP’s, I can testify that only a handful of premium customers get these speeds. Well, not this time! This was the reaction of a “Digital Alien” in a Cleveland homeless shelter.
