Siklu Introduces mm-Wave Multi-Gigabit 360 Degree Backhaul Solution

Siklu has released a new 360-degree coverage mesh node to its MultiHaul series of mm-Wave Gigabit solutions. The MultiHaul N360 is topology independent and can be deployed in a Point-to-Multi-Point (PtMP) or mesh topology with built-in wireless backhaul. The node can be installed as an enhanced Base Unit in a PtMP topology, with the advantage of only one install required for more than 90° coverage and the wireless backhaul connection. If the target region is a neighborhood of Single Family Units, where take rates are uncertain, the N360 can be used as a self-organizing (SON) mesh node, adding nodes as the network expands and densifies. The built-in wireless backhaul via other N360 devices or the ability to connect to a network POP via fiber or a Siklu EtherHaul link with up to 10Gbps FD are a perfect fit for any topology. On the subscriber side, the N360 delivers a gigabit to either of the currently available Siklu MultiHaul Terminal Units (T200, or the cTU T201).

The N360 is supported by Siklu's advanced SmartHaul tools: WiNDE for network design, SmartHaul EMS for management, and is focused on reducing the Total Cost of Ownership by adding SON for centralized and automated operations of the meshed nodes.

When deployed in a mesh topology, Siklu's self-organizing protocols centrally controlled from SmartHaul SON, ensure "light-touch" deployments and on-going optimizations, eliminating service disruptions.

Combining the advanced self-organizing centralized controls with superior automatic beam steering means installations can be completed within minutes and with minimal skillsets. This solution is ideal for system integrators and carriers focused on delivering gigabit connections in dense environments.

Siklu's MultiHaul N360 solution will be showcased at MWC Barcelona 2019, February 25-28, Hall 5, booth #5K21.
