Game Changing Regulation: Outdoor PtMP 60GHz Connectivity Now Allowed in the UK
Siklu ready to serve this massive new opportunity with the auto aligning PtMP MultiHaul™ product family
FORT LEE, NEW JERSEY – July 23, 2018 – Siklu, the global market leader in mmWave wireless solutions announced today that its MultiHaul™ Point to Multipoint (PtMP) solution is now available in the UK, following the latest regulation change by Ofcom.
With the introduction of the award winning MultiHaul™ solution Siklu expanded the multi-gigabit solutions available in the UK. When a MultiHaul™ deployment is combined with Siklu’s EtherHaul™ PTP products for backhaul, operators and customers have access to Siklu’s complete end to end portfolio of mmWave solutions.
MultiHaul™ is delivering carrier grade performance in 5G Fixed Wireless and Smart City applications worldwide. By taking advantage of Siklu’s beamforming technology to auto-align links and simplified out of the box deployment, Siklu offers a true plug & play, small form factor system. The MultiHaul™ is also supported by Siklu’s SmartHaul™ WiNDE software, an automated network design tool for PTP and PTMP Siklu radios.
The solution’s 90-degree scanning antenna makes installation by a single person a reality. By combining auto-alignment on the Terminal Unit (TU) with the same capability on the Base Unit (BU), multiple terminal units can connect to a base unit with virtually no manual alignment.
Unlike traditional wireless radios that use wide beams that can be easily intercepted or interfered with, the MultiHaul™ leverages narrow beams in the widely available and license exempt 60GHz frequency band. This helps ensure interference free and secure communication, connecting up to 8 terminal units at up to a range of 400 metres.
Siklu’s broad E-band and V-band product portfolio has already crossed a milestone of 130 Smart City installations, and hundreds of 5G GTTH applications installed. The City of Wichita, KS, USA is one of many examples where MultiHaul™ radios are used to deliver multi-gigabit connectivity, running multiple applications on the same wireless network simultaneously, unaffected by 5GHz saturation in the area.
“We are thrilled to introduce our innovative, leading mmWave Point to Multipoint product to the UK market,” said Eyal Assa, Siklu’s CEO. “The MultiHaul™ series is ideal for the emerging 5G Gigabit Wireless Access (GWA) market with enterprise, residential and smart city customers demanding gigabit connectivity”.
Siklu delivers multi-gigabit wireless fibre connectivity in urban, suburban and rural areas. Operating in the mmWave bands, Siklu’s wireless solutions are used by leading service providers and system integrators to provide 5G Gigabit Wireless Access services. In addition, Siklu solutions are ideal for Smart City projects requiring extra capacity such as video security, WiFi backhaul and municipal network connectivity all over one network. Thousands of carrier-grade systems are delivering interference-free performance worldwide. Easily installed on street-fixtures or rooftops, these radios have been proven to be the ideal solution for networks requiring fast and simple deployment of secure, wireless fibre. www.siklu.com.
