Siklu Releases the EH-7XX Series with External Antennas
The EH-7XX Series allows longer ranges and greater flexibility in deployments
FORT LEE, NEW JERSEY – August 9, 2018 – Siklu, the global market leader in mmWave wireless solutions is introducing new models in its EH-700 product line supporting external antennas, the EH-7XX-EXT.
The EH-700 and EH-710 operate in a TDD format in the lightly licensed 70GHz mmWave band, and offer support for aggregated capacities as low as 100Mbps, reaching all the way to 1Gbps. While the existing 16cm integrated antenna model satisfies a plurality of application needs, there are times when a deployment just needs to reach further. With options for an external one-foot or two-foot antenna, the EH‑7XX supports this need for additional range. Customers can still use the EH-7XX with a smaller 16cm antenna where needed (not FCC approved).
Operating as a TDD solution supports applications where symmetry or asymmetry in the uplink and downlink capacity is required, achieving this in a carrier-class product. By adding the EH-7XX to the Hundred Series of Siklu PTP products, Siklu continues to expand its already extensive portfolio of mmWave E-band solutions. The small form factor product also includes an integrated MEF-compliant 3-ports gigabit Ethernet switch, with up to 50W to total POE output, satisfying the power needs of many Smart-City deployments with a single wire to cameras or Wi-Fi access points.
“The lightly licensed 70GHz mmWave band is ideal for today’s high-capacity applications, and we give our customers more flexibility with this product,” said Eyal Assa, Siklu’s CEO. “We understand the demand and implementation of high-speed connectivity that requires a broad portfolio of solutions, and no other market player has more mmWave solutions than Siklu.”
Siklu delivers multi-gigabit wireless fiber connectivity in urban, suburban and rural areas. Operating in the secure mmWave bands, Siklu’s wireless solutions are used by leading service providers and system integrators to provide 5G Gigabit Wireless Access services. Easily installed on street-fixtures or rooftops, Siklu solutions are also 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 worldwide are delivering fast interference-free performance and benefiting a true comprehensive end-to-end solution from planning to deployment. www.siklu.com.
