Siklu, a leading provider of millimeter-wave wireless solutions, has been gaining traction in the field of security applications. The company’s innovative technology provides an alternative, cost-efficient solution for security applications with a scalable network that can grow over time and serve exponentially greater areas. According to Luis Fontecha, Siklu’s South America Business Development Manager, the technology has been successfully deployed in the city of Medellin, Colombia, where it has been well received by the Secretariat charged with the upkeep of more than 3,000 security cameras spread around the city.
Fontecha highlighted the technology’s ability to mitigate the burden of leased infrastructure, which is a significant concern for many cities. With a scalable network that can grow over time and serve exponentially greater areas, the technology offers a flexible solution that can adapt to the needs of the city. This scalability means that cities can save money on leased infrastructure while still providing top-of-the-line security for their citizens.
Wireless Fiber Optics
Mr. Edwin Munoz, ESU General Manager, noted that the company has always been based on science, technology, and innovation. He explained that they found that millimeter waves are the new ‘wireless fiber optics’ that allowed them to deploy in a more agile and efficient manner and transmit large volumes of data. This, in turn, enables them to transform the city of Medellin into the city they have always dreamed of and build the future of the city.
Siklu’s technology has also been praised by Mr. Juan Gabriel Pulgarin, a video-vigilance (SIES-M) camera professional. According to Pulgarin, the city of Medellin has a special typography, which makes the deployment of security cameras and infrastructure quite challenging. However, Siklu’s solution is flexible, scalable, and helps overcome the challenges inherent to the city. Pulgarin noted that this is why they decided to migrate to Siklu.
Moreover, Pulgarin commented on large-scale projects in the city that no longer suffer from ‘spectrum saturation’. He noted the recent stadium communication challenge that his department managed to solve with Siklu, enabling their security camera network to support facial analytics. With up to 10Gbps of available bandwidth, data-hungry applications are no longer a concern.
In conclusion, Siklu’s technology is a game-changer in the field of security applications. Its cost-efficient, scalable, and flexible nature provides a viable alternative to cities burdened by leased infrastructure costs. The positive feedback from users in the city of Medellin is a testament to its effectiveness and reliability. With Siklu’s technology, cities can achieve top-of-the-line security without breaking the bank.
