PETACH TIKVA, Israel -- Commercial Broadband Solutions Inc. (CBS), a leased backhaul solutions provider, has selected Siklu’s EtherHaul E-band radio for point-to-point wireless Ethernet connectivity, Siklu announced.

CBS turned to Siklu to solve an urgent need for 100 Mbps links between locations for a healthcare facility customer in southwest Michigan. The customer needed a significant boost in capacity to meet growing bandwidth needs and improve patient care, but its existing wireless infrastructure could not handle the bandwidth or latency requirements of a key patient management software application. In addition, the wireless platform’s hardware limitations caused frequent periods of instability marked by an increase in latency, packet loss and decreased throughput.

CBS worked with MapleNet Wireless, a national leader in wireless communications technologies and a Siklu partner. While CBS initially examined solutions such as leased fiber, cable, and VPN, it ruled these options out due to their high up-front costs and long installation time. Recognizing that a point-to-point wireless connection would offer the quickest solution, CBS and MapleNet chose Siklu’s EtherHaul.
