Siklu Leads Millimeter Wave Backhaul Market for Third Consecutive Year
PETACH TIKVA, Israel --(Business Wire)--
With sales of its EtherHaul system seeing double-digit growth in 2013, Siklu
continues to lead the rapidly growing E-band millimeter wave backhaul
The company announced today that it sold more than 6,500 EtherHaul units
in 2013, to service providers, operators and private networks. That
represents more than 30 percent market share for the year. Siklu (News - Alert) has
achieved industry leadership through its groundbreaking all-silicon
technology, which slashed prices and enabled mass market millimeter wave
"Siklu entered the market with a disruptive price point, which has
driven adoption and pulled down average unit prices across the market,"
says Richard Webb, Directing Analyst, Microwave and Carrier WiFi (News - Alert), for
Infonetics Research. "In 2013 Siklu was a major driver of unit volumes
with its EtherHaul licensed millimeter wave products."
More than 13,500 EtherHaul units are already deployed worldwide, in all
cliates, making them the most field-proven in the industry. Numerous
service providers and operators are taking advantage of EtherHaul's
carrier-grade reliability and advanced Ethernet networking capabilities
to integrate them seamlessly into their networks.
In 2014, Siklu will further the penetration of its new groundbreaking
innovation - low-priced, tiny, and unobtrusive V-band (60 GHz) backhaul
radio that will enable mass deployment of street-level networked
devices. Applications range from carrier small cells backhaul through
Wi-Fi offload to security solutions, Siklu's new radios are simple to
install and deliver high performance at a very low cost. Combined with
its E-band products, these new radios allow Siklu to address multiple
backhaul use cases that challenge operators and service providers
"We have already transformed the millimeter wave market with our
all-silicon E-band radio, and now we're going to shake up the 60 GHz
V-band market," said Siklu's CEO, Itzik Ben-Bassat. "Driving small cell
backhaul costs down - from unit cost to installation and operational
costs - is crucial for profitable deployments.
"Siklu's EtherHaul-600T backhaul solution is the smallest in the market,
and it can be installed rapidly on street furniture by non-telco
personnel. It delivers advanced networking, high capacity, and
reliability at a compelling price."
Siklu will be at Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) in Barcelona February 24-27, in
