Using Siklu’s Overbuild technology, customers can easily and seamlessly combine an existing, new licensed or unlicensed microwave link with a Siklu mmWave link. With this approach, Siklu mmWave links can be extended in range with the licensed microwave link providing an alternate connection during periods of heavy rain or other momentary impacts to the mmWave link performance. 

As an example, an EH-2500FX can be designed to reach 15 miles, with full capacity at 99% availability. 

The microwave link, many times an existing installed connection, can be used as an alternate path for the 1% (aggregated 3d 15h 36m through the year) of the time the mmWave link may be out of service. 

How it works?

  • Combines traditional microwave links with Siklu mmWave capacity
  • Simple integration
  • Full software support for “hitless switching”
    • Built in, easy to configure parameters 
  • Results in:
    • Increased range – 6 miles or more
    • Improved availability and reliability
