Gigabits Down to the Last Mile
Internet for All
It is now truly a Gigabit world and there have been numerous recent developments in 5G-related standards, regulatory decisions and spectrum allocations in order to achieve that class of service. In addition, industry groups such as Facebook’s Terragraph are leading the charge for 60GHz deployments. Today with Siklu mmWave, wireless has achieved parity with wireline or optical access networks delivering Gigabits to your doorstep.
This is all leading to a new vision for access networks, one that comprehensively includes SFUs, MDUs, SMBs and IoT applications for Smart Cities. New methodologies and topologies will become possible and “self-organizing networks” that combine the latest hardware and advances in SaaS software platforms will streamline deployments and lower CAPEX and OPEX.
Every Network is Unique
Along with the explosion in the drive to deliver Gigabit services, comes an almost infinite number of network designs and topologies. Every wireless network has its specific system needs based on tower locations, service delivery areas, the proximity of tall buildings and trees, powering the network and more. The variety of topologies and uniqueness of each network are astounding.
To serve this wide-open, highly demanding market you must have a broad selection of mmWave systems that can be configured in an almost infinite number of configurations. Siklu has the broadest portfolio of mmWave systems in the world. Point to point links supporting 1Gbps up to 10Gbps full duplex, point to multipoint products with terminal units the size of your smartphone, and our mesh product line ensures that no matter what your Gigabit needs, Siklu has the answer.
mmWave and Fiber – A Match Made in Heaven
Lastly, fiber optics will always be the foundation of any Gigabit access network – and mmWave and fiber complement each other perfectly. For instance, a strategy that relies on fiber alone will be expensive and time-consuming to deploy. Hundreds of miles of trenching equates to millions of dollars literally sunk in the ground. Enter mmWave wireless – the perfect complement to fiber and a way to “rise above it all.” With mmWave systems from Siklu, you can tap into your existing fiber plant and stretch it from a few hundred feet to miles – it is a true “pay as your grow” strategy and the most efficient way to cover new potential customers. With the right blend of mmWave and fiber, you can cost-effectively deliver the Gigabits your Internet Access customers demand, at a price they can afford – and which your bottom line demands.
Leading the Future
Further, Siklu’s fourth generation of 60GHz products is fully Terragraph compliant and is part of a complete system for designing and operating dense, mesh networks of thousands of nodes, which will help propel the adoption of the Terragraph system. Terragraph is another example of the compelling advantage Fixed 5G service providers have over their mobile-based counterparts – especially for Gigabit-speed access.
The quest for true “Gigabit to the Home” begins with fiber, but it most cost-effectively ends with a mmWave “last link” connection. Click here to learn more about Siklu’s solutions for single family units in urban and suburban settings.
Delivering a true Gigabit in the MDU sector can be a challenge. For one thing, an MDU can mean several things, from a high-rise building with more than 100 units to a quartet of quadplexes occupying a suburban block. Let Siklu’s industry-leading experience and expertise guide you on the way to solving the MDU dilemma.
As we move forward into a Gigabit World, delivering those gigabits beyond the reach of fiber is the mission of mmWave wireless systems. Deploying reliable Internet Access in campus environments requires a broad selection of products – from small, 1Gbps to 10Gbps full duplex PtP connections to PtMP beam steering solutions the unique topology of each campus will require a unique network design. Only Siklu has the depth and breadth of products for a fully functional full coverage mmWave campus network.
Establishing Gigabit-speed rural connectivity may be difficult, but it does not have to “hard.” Click here to learn how Siklu mmWave systems can go the distance and make “wireless fiber” a reality — Gigabits at a cost people can afford and a good business case for the service provider.
Throughout virtually all industrial sectors many emerging technologies are creating more connected environments to keep pace with today’s digital world. Industrial operations now incorporate a number of bandwidth-intensive services to increase production and decrease downtime. Click here to learn how Siklu’s multi-Gigabit connectivity makes it happen.
Siklu offers the widest selection of mmWave products in the industry. This portfolio of 60GHz (V-Band) and 70/80GHz (E-Band) solutions in both PtP, PtMP and Mesh configurations allows Siklu to offer complete end to end multi Gigabit wireless networks.
