Tel Aviv, Israel, October 13, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Siklu Communication Ltd., provider of innovative millimeter wave wireless backhaul solutions, successfully participated in the Carrier Ethernet World Congress Public Multi-Vendor Interoperability Test 2011.
The Carrier Ethernet interoperability event at the Carrier Ethernet World Congress 2011 is organized by the European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC), with the participation of 18 leading telecom vendors. The EtherHaul E-band wireless system effectively demonstrated, amongst others, standard G.8032 Ethernet ring protection, Synchronous Ethernet (Sync-E) compatibility and QoS over microwave during the EANTC’s Interoperability two-week hot staging in Berlin.
The advanced Carrier Ethernet features that Siklu demonstrated at the hot staging are supported in an unprecedented low-cost all-outdoor radio, featuring a low form factor and low power consumption.
“Including these advanced features in an all-outdoor radio has a significant cost advantage," says Gaby Junowicz, VP marketing and business development at Siklu. “By doing so, mobile operators and service providers can eliminate the need for an additional indoor demarcation device, and can provide advanced Ethernet services using all-outdoor systems.”
With mobile operators facing exponentially increasing capacity demand, the backhaul network is evolving rapidly to advanced topologies with increased resilience such as ring and mesh, and stringent quality of service mechanisms are required. Standards-based support for advanced topologies, as well as advanced synchronization and QoS, are required of backhaul network components.
“Siklu has successfully demonstrated that the all-outdoor EtherHaul E-band radio supports the advanced features carriers require and seamlessly integrates with other network elements manufactured by various equipment vendors,” adds Shahar Peleg, Director of Product Management at Siklu.
Through an innovative implementation of all-silicon technology, Siklu is able to price its EtherHaul Gigabit capacity millimeter wave systems at 80 percent less than comparable systems.
"Siklu is committed to providing innovative backhaul solutions for mobile operators and business service providers," summarizes Junowicz. "We will continue to develop standards-based full-featured backhaul solutions, priced significantly lower than industry norms that integrate seamlessly into carrier networks."
The EANTC Interoperability hot staging results are being showcased at Carrier Ethernet World Congress this week in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Siklu will be presenting its EtherHaul solution at the conference, stand 15. The multi-vendor interoperability test report may be downloaded from Siklu’s website.
Siklu has been committed to reducing the cost of high capacity wireless backhaul solutions since 2008. The company's success centers on an innovative silicon-based design of the millimetric wave radio system and components that has resulted in systems priced as low as 20 percent of competition. The EtherHaul radios deliver Gigabit speeds over the uncongested millimetric wave spectrum and are ideal for a urban wireless backhaul of macro, micro and picocells.
