Siklu Takes Street Level Connectivity Beyond Small Cell Backhaul into Wi-Fi, Security, Business and Residential Services

PETACH TIKVA, Israel--()--Siklu has boosted the capabilities of its EtherHaul-600T flagship V-band system, best known for its small cell backhaul functionality, the company announced today.

The EtherHaul-600T is now ready to provide street level gigabit wireless connectivity to Wi-Fi access points, security devices, businesses, and residential complexes. The groundbreaking gigabit radio operates over the unlicensed 60 GHz spectrum, in uncongested and interference-free frequencies, and provides a low-cost street level solution.

Demand for high-capacity street level connectivity is expanding beyond the rapidly growing small cell backhaul market. Wi-Fi networks, security networks, business–to-business, and residential services also require future-proof gigabit capacity solutions, in order to minimize technician visits and to perform reliably in the long term.

The EtherHaul-600T combines gigabit throughput with easy installation and high reliability, and can be deployed on any type of street furniture, from lighting poles to traffic lights to building facades. Providing a future-proof long-term solution with a high ROI, it’s the ideal solution for many markets.

“We see the EtherHaul-600T as a unique street level connectivity solution,” said Shahar Peleg, Director of Product Management and Marketing at Siklu. “Aside from the truly small size – the smallest in the world – and always-available spectrum, we have found that a big challenge in street level installations is the limited access to street furniture.

"But with the EtherHaul-600T radio, Siklu has made it possible for any installer, even one with no telco expertise, to deploy it. This makes it far easier to achieve mass deployments and meet many last mile challenges.”

“We have already transformed the millimeter wave market with our all-silicon E-band radio, and now we’re going to shake up the street level connectivity market,” said Siklu’s Vice President of Global Sales, Zeev Farkash. “Driving down costs of street level connectivity and reducing installation challenges are key to opening up new markets, and we’ve addressed both with our EtherHaul-600T.”

The EtherHaul-600T is FCC, IC (Industry Canada)*, ETSI, and CE approved. The product is widely available through Siklu distributors worldwide.

Siklu, the market leader in millimeter wave connectivity, will showcase the EtherHaul-600T at IP Expo in London this week.
