by Brianna Crandall — April 10, 2017 — Israel-based Siklu Inc., a global provider of millimeter wave solutions, has just unveiled the MultiHaul, which the company calls a “revolutionary” point-to-multipoint millimeter wave wireless solution for the physical security market.
The new millimeter wave radio extends Siklu’s multi-gigabit product line to include an easy-to-install, interference-immune, cyber-secure solution for high-speed video surveillance networks, including smart cities and Internet of Things deployments that demand always-on connectivity.
Siklu develops millimeter wave wireless solutions for the physical security market, with a full lineup of point-to-point EtherHaul radios for street-level and rooftop connectivity that delivers multi-gigabit throughput for municipal, government and commercial security networks. Siklu says its millimeter wave systems are deployed around the world and are used by several major cities and leading service providers across the globe.
Unlike traditional wireless networks that use wide beams that can be easily intercepted, Siklu radios leverage narrow beams in the 60-80 GHz millimeter wave spectrum to transmit information across security networks, providing interference-free and secured communication infrastructure, making them ideal for mission-critical deployments.
The new MultiHaul utilizes beam-forming technology within a point-to-multipoint network topology that makes installation by a single person a reality for system integrators. The solution’s 90-degree scanning antenna auto-aligns multiple terminal units from a single base unit, serving multiple locations while reducing installation times and the total cost of ownership for end users.
The MultiHaul’s ability to stream many different devices, such as HD and 4K video cameras and IoT sensors, also helps streamline the video surveillance network’s deployment.
Izik Kirshenbaum, Siklu’s president, commented:
We are thrilled to introduce innovative point-to-multipoint radios over the millimeter wave spectrum. With the new MultiHaul and our EtherHaul point-to-point family of products, security end users and system integrators can benefit from the speed and reliability of fiber and the convenience and quick setup of wireless at an affordable price.
