Siklu, a world leader in millimeter wave (mmWave) solutions for Digital City and Gigabit Wireless Access (GWA), announced two new connectivity options to its MultiHaul TG product family – the MultiHaul TG MPL-260 and the MultiHaul TG N265. Siklu offers the largest selection of Terragraph-certified products for fixed 5G wireless access, Wi-Fi hotspot and small cell backhaul, smart city connectivity and other applications.
The MultiHaul TG MPL-260 is a plug-and-play solution for the rapid deployment of Gigabit-speed point-to-point (PtP) connectivity. A Terragraph-certified first, the MultiHaul TG MPL-260 features two pre-paired radio units, with Auto-Aligned patent-pending scanning antennas. Customers can simply install the units and point them towards each other to deliver 1Gbps over up to 300m (984ft.), across interference free 60GHz license-exempt spectrum.
The MultiHaul TG N265 enhances the MultiHaul TG series of nodes with flexibility in radio coverage for those situations calling for a significant down-tilt of the antenna to connect adjacent structures from a large tall roof in a dense urban setting or when one needs 90° coverage or less, for example, to backhaul a few cameras or Wi-Fi APs in a parking lot to a corner pole. This unit is designed for an easy single-person installation and also features the patent-pending scanning antenna capability to align pencil-thin beams with other nodes or terminal units automatically.
The MultiHaul TG family consists of nodes operating over millimeter waves in a redundant mesh topology which connect a suite of terminal units. The MultiHaul TG family brings the advantages of mmWave spectrum – multi-Gigabit capacity, immunity to interference and massive amounts of available spectrum – to an easy-to-deploy solution with the addition of L2 SDN mesh, enabled by Siklu’s SmartHaul™ NMS with the Runner subsystem.
“Our customers have benefitted from the industry-first 360° coverage capability of our MultiHaul TG N366 nodes, but there are use cases where 90° coverage will be better suited for the application,” said Shimon Hochbaum, AVP Product Management of Siklu. “And with the MPL-260, Siklu responds to customer requirements for a simple Gigabit point-to-point auto-connect link that can be deployed configuration-free to rapidly fill a gap in the fiber network, for backhaul and other applications.”
