Siklu, a provider of fixed 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) solutions for gigabit wireless access (GWA), smart city and security networks, announced approval from Industry Canada (IC) for sales and deployment of the Siklu MultiHaul line of Gigabit-speed V-Band (57 – 64 GHz) mmWave systems in Canada.
The MulitHaul family consists of both point-to-multipoint (PtMP) and point-to-point (PtP) products. The IC certification initially covers only the PtMP line, specifically the B100 and T200 PtMP systems (base and terminal units). These radios feature multi-Gigabit capacity, plug and play scalability, patent-pending scanning antennas that auto-align links, and connectivity for up to eight terminal units at ranges up to 400 meters.
“With Broadband Internet considered a basic service, and unprecedented circumstances demanding increased network capacity, the market for Gigabit wireless access networks is rapidly expanding in Canada. The prospects for V-Band systems look particularly promising,” said Siklu Canadian partner, Trispec Communications, a wholly Canadian owned and operated distributor, systems integrator and network solutions provider. “We have seen significant interest in the last few months from end users such as broadband service providers, private companies, security firms and municipalities.”
“We are excited about the IC certification and the prospects for the Canadian market, which are in line with V-Band growth around the world,” said Ronen Ben-Hamou, CEO of Siklu. “Unlike the congested lower frequencies, the V-Band has plenty of interference-free spectrum for advanced Gigabit-speed applications to close the digital divide, enhance security operations and hasten the implementation of various Smart City services. And the V-Band is unlicensed, making it easier and less expensive to use.”
