PETACH TIKVA, Israel -- Siklu Communication Ltd., a leading provider of millimeter wave systems, is in the advanced trial stage of its new EtherHaul-600T small cell backhaul system with leading mobile operators, including Vodafone Group. As thousands of small cells are expected to be deployed in street-level, highly populated metropolitan scenarios, it is clear that providing backhaul to the small cell is a key challenge. An ultra-low-cost and small form factor backhaul solution that blends into the street level environment is a key enabler to the mass deployment of small cells. To formulate their strategy for cost-effective small cell and backhaul deployments, major mobile operators are currently conducting technology trials with Siklu. The EtherHaul-600T is an ultra-small all-outdoor small cell backhaul system operating in the unlicensed 57-66 GHz V-band spectrum. Its design enables rapid deployment anywhere from street lamps to rooftops, as service providers boost their network capacity through small cells in dense urban environments. Siklu’s EtherHaul-600T has undergone lab testing and outdoor performance testing with mobile operators, with the units' performance gauged at various distances. For example, Vodafone has now deployed several EtherHaul-600T links in a U.K. city's downtown area. The EtherHaul-600T units are deployed in a daisy chain to provide the backhaul for real-life traffic generated by small cells, monitoring the performance and availability of the links.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
