Siklu Added to Cisco's Small Cell Backhaul Ecosystem
PETACH TIKVA, Israel -- Siklu Communication Ltd., a leading provider of millimeter wave systems, announced the addition of its small cell wireless backhaul solutions to the Cisco Small Cell Wireless Backhaul Ecosystem.
Sikluís Gigabit capacity small form factor millimeter wave radios provide a solution for both the small cell backhaul and small cell offload to the macro cell backhaul network. This is an area which also requires a capacity boost. The EtherHaul-600T is a palm-sized all-outdoor small cell backhaul product operating in the 57-66 GHz V-band that enables rapid deployment anywhere, from street lamps to rooftops. The EtherHaul-1200 is a very small form factor radio operating in the 70/80 GHz, E-band spectrum.
Using an integrated all-silicon approach, Siklu brings down costs to a fraction of those of other millimeter wave solutions. It also lowers the number of components, reducing system size to the smallest in the industry, while increasing reliability.
Cisco has created an ecosystem of wireless solutions that provide end-to-end connectivity for mobile operators, from a small cell site all the way back to their mobile core network. Ecosystem partners provide technologies in their own areas, which are incorporated into the overall Cisco best-in-class mobile backhaul solution, the unified MPLS for mobile transport (UMMT) solution.
