Using Siklu for Network Backhaul

For ISP’s and mission critical connections, backhauls is really where you tie everything together. These point to point links used to be over copper lines (still in place all over the world) and then over fiber when available, but increasingly wireless / microwave backhaul solutions have found a strong market in the connectivity arena.

The Siklu Kilo products series are known to be among the most widely installed 70–80GHz radios all around the world. Siklu is a pioneer organization known to offer advanced and high quality products in the market. In addition, it is also the first in leading performance when it comes to offering multi Gbps connections across many miles of distance. Siklu Kilo series products are typically set up on towers or rooftops, with the strong support for external antennas that the user can deploy about 0.5 inch to 2 inch antennas. It is essential to mention that all these depend on the level of range that is required.

The capacities begin at about 700 Mbps TDD with EH — 1200TX product. It can also go as high up as 10 Gbps Full Duplex with FDD EH — 8010. The Siklu exclusive rights RFIC implementations offers capacities that supports at varying ranges attaining as high as 4.3 miles, which is 6.9km. This is at a cost that has been at the fore front and has dramatically enlarged the market for the gigabit connectivity within the spectrums of E band.

Very similar to the 60 GHz or V band products, the EtherHaul Kilo Series has supported wide frequency agility within the 70–80 GHz band. It also supports the highly narrow beams which have resulted in more or less unlimited spectrum for solid installations of EtherHaul radios. All these results are attained from a product family that delivers multi Gigabit throughputs that are designed for network backbones, fibre extensions, and mobile backhaul at distance and prices that cannot be beaten.
