Millimetre wave wireless networks provider, Siklu, has announced a new 10 Gigabit per second (Gbps) full duplex wireless solution. Operating over the interference free 70/80GHz bands, the new EtherHaul 8010 provides a reliable fibre extension solution where fibre exists, and greenfield Gigabit connectivity where there may be no fibre at all.
The EtherHaul 8010 leverages multiple technical innovations to deliver robust 10Gbps full duplex capacity over longer distances. The EH-8010 is the first of a new platform from Siklu, the 8000 series of products. Additional products incorporating the high capacity/high link budget core technologies will be announced over the course of 2018.
Service providers focused on Gigabit connectivity for the last mile, or requiring multi Gbps for backhaul links will be able to deploy the EH-8010 with its range throughout their network. The radios support 10Gbps on both copper and fibre interfaces with an additional 1GE port for critical services such as out-of-band management. In all cases, the combination of a premium radio link budget supported by the EH-8010 radios, coupled with what is supposedly industry leading value in Gigabits per dollar will appeal to small and large deployments.
“With the introduction of the EtherHaul 8010, Siklu brings to the market a very cost effective 10Gbps product,” said Siklu’s CEO Eyal Assa. “We’ve had numerous pre-orders from ISPs planning to upgrade aggregation links as well as provide higher capacity to MDUs. The combination of flexible, high-capacity, high reliability and long range makes the EtherHaul 8010 a leader in the fixed-wireless and mobile industries.”
The EtherHaul 8010 will be showcased at MWC Barcelona, 26th February to 1st March 1, IMA booth, hall 2, stand 2E50 and at WISPAMERICA Birmingham, AL, 6th to 8th March, booth 705.
