Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Siklu Communication for Its Innovation in Gigabit Ethernet Radio Design

Siklu wins a major award from Frost & Sullivan recognizing the superiority of its all-silicon millimetric wave backhaul system.

London, United Kingdom, August 10, 2011 --( Leading International Research and Growth Consultancy Company Frost & Sullivan has presented Siklu, a pioneer in the mobile wireless backhaul market with the New Product Innovation of the Year Award in the Gigabit Ethernet Radios space, for its ground-breaking all-silicon technology.

Frost & Sullivan presents this award yearly to the company that has excelled in a range of dimensions. These include innovation, leveraging cutting edge technology, including value-add features, increased customer ROI and potential to penetrate markets. Siklu scored higher than the competitors analyzed on all of these criteria.

Siklu’s solutions meet mobile operators’ dual demands – high throughput at a low cost – through an innovative redesign of the millimetric wave radio system. Delivering gigabit speeds over the millimetric wave spectrum and priced at 80 percent less than comparable systems, Siklu’s EtherHaul radios are an ideal solution for spectrum-congested urban and metropolitan backhaul.

“Siklu’s EtherHaul radio belongs to the next generation of millimeter-wave or E-band solutions that have the dual benefit of offering high gigabit-per-second network capacity while relieving frequency congestion by operating in the E-band spectrum,” states Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Anand Srinivasan.

Srinivasan adds, “Siklu has addressed many aspects of the system and introduced an all-silicon design to offer a good price-performance ratio, small footprint and low power consumption which make it an environmentally friendly solution.”

“Siklu is delighted to be recognized by a notable research and growth consultancy firm like Frost & Sullivan,” says Gaby Junowicz, VP marketing and business development at Siklu and continues: “Siklu remains committed to meeting future needs of mobile operators. With 4G/LTE resulting in smaller outdoor micro and picocells deployed at shorter intervals, the need for small footprint, low cost, high capacity backhaul becomes even greater. Siklu will continue to develop innovative backhaul solutions priced significantly lower than the industry norms, to support operators’ evolving needs.”
