Siklu’s mm-Wave Gigabit Wireless Solutions Now Approved for Deployment in Canada

Siklu, a global leader in Fixed 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) solutions, has received approval from Canada's Innovation Science and Economic Development (ISED) for sales and deployment of the Siklu MultiHaul line of Gigabit-speed V-Band (57 – 64 GHz) mmWave systems in Canada. Siklu currently has tens of thousands of MultiHaul systems installed in dozens of countries around the world, providing high-speed connectivity for residential and enterprise broadband, security and Smart City networks.

The MulitHaul family consists of both Point-to-Multipoint (PtMP) and Point-to-Point (PtP) products. The ISED certification initially covers only the PtMP line, specifically the B100 and T200 PtMP systems (base and terminal units). These radios like all MultiHaul products, feature multi-Gigabit capacity, plug & play scalability, patent-pending scanning antennas that auto-align links, and connectivity for up to 8 terminal units at ranges up to 400 meters. Siklu will begin the certification process for other current and future MultiHaul products, including the Facebook Terragraph-compliant version -- the MultiHaul TG, at a later date.

Siklu previously received ISED approval for its EtherHaul product line and currently has multiple deployments in Canada, including the city of Cambridge, Ontario, where EtherHaul radios provide Gigabit-speed connectivity for an extensive video security network and public Wi-Fi hotspots. 

According to 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.
