MEF & IIR joint award recognizes most effective Carrier Ethernet Mobile Backhaul Product supporting the explosion in mobile data rates and services

20th September Tel-Aviv,IL, Siklu Communication - a pioneer in the mobile wireless backhaul market has been named as a finalist for the MEF & IIR Best Carrier Ethernet Mobile Backhaul Product EMEA 2011 award. The nomination recognizes Siklu’s EtherHaul millimeter wave radio’s ability to deliver Gigabit speeds at an ultra low cost, with full carrier Ethernet networking capabilities in an all-outdoor low power unit.

“Siklu is delighted to be recognized by the MEF & IIR for its ability to provide both Gigabit speeds and advanced carrier Ethernet networking in a low cost, low power all-outdoor radio, ” says Gaby Junowicz, VP marketing and business development at Siklu.

Through an innovative implementation of all-silicon technology, Siklu is able to price its EtherHaul Gigabit capacity E-band millimeter wave systems at 80% less than comparable systems, while including a full suite of carrier Ethernet capabilities and standards-based features. The all-outdoor radio boasts an extremely small size, light weight and low power consumption, and its on-board Carrier Ethernet networking eliminates the need for an additional demarcation device. The result is a low cost and low TCO backhaul solution that facilitates site acquisition and rapid deployment.

“Siklu is committed to providing innovative backhaul solutions for mobile operators and business service providers” says Junowicz. “We will continue to develop standards-based full-featured backhaul solutions priced significantly lower than industry norms, that integrate seamlessly with carrier networks”.
The MEF & IIR award winners will be announced on Wednesday October 12th at the Carrier Ethernet World Congress 2011 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Siklu will be showcasing its EtherHaul solution at the conference, stand 15.
