Siklu Receives ISED Canada Approval for MultiHaul™ Gigabit Wireless Access Products
Industry’s Most-Advanced V-Band mmWave Platform Provides Gigabit-Speed Connectivity for Residential and Enterprise Broadband, Security and Smart City Services.
SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA – July 23, 2020 – Siklu, a global leader in Fixed 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) solutions for Gigabit Wireless Access (GWA), Smart City and security networks, today announced the Company has received approval from Canada’s Innovation Science and Economic Development (ISED) for sales and deployment of the Siklu MultiHaul™ line of Gigabit-speed V-Band (57 – 64 GHz) mmWave systems in Canada. Siklu currently has tens of thousands of MultiHaul™ systems installed in dozens of countries around the world, providing high-speed connectivity for residential and enterprise broadband, security and Smart City networks.
The MulitHaul™ family consists of both Point-to-Multipoint (PtMP) and Point-to-Point (PtP) products. The ISED certification initially covers only the PtMP line, specifically the B100 and T200 PtMP systems (base and terminal units). These radios like all MultiHaul™ products, feature multi-Gigabit capacity, plug & play scalability, patent-pending scanning antennas that auto-align links, and connectivity for up to 8 terminal units at ranges up to 400 meters. Siklu will begin the certification process for other current and future MultiHaul™ products, including the Facebook Terragraph-compliant version – the MultiHaul™ TG, at a later date.
“With Broadband Internet considered a basic service, and unprecedented circumstances demanding increased network capacity, the market for Gigabit wireless access networks is rapidly expanding in Canada. The prospects for V-Band systems look particularly promising,” said Siklu Canadian partner, Trispec Communications, a wholly Canadian owned and operated National distributor, systems integrator, and network solutions provider. “We have seen significant interest in the last few months from end users such as broadband service providers, private companies, security firms and municipalities.”
Siklu previously received ISED approval for its EtherHaul™ product line and currently has multiple deployments in Canada, including the city of Cambridge, Ontario, where EtherHaul™ radios provide Gigabit-speed connectivity for an extensive video security network and public Wi-Fi hotspots.
“We are excited about the ISED certification and the prospects for the Canadian market, which are in line with V-Band growth around the world,” said Ronen Ben-Hamou, CEO of Siklu. “Unlike the congested lower frequencies, the V-Band has plenty of interference-free spectrum for advanced Gigabit-speed applications to close the digital divide, enhance security operations and hasten the implementation of various Smart City services. And the V-Band is unlicensed, making it easier and less expensive to use.”
