After ruling out standard microwave links because of their bulky dish size and weight,
With space at a premium on the street lighting columns, the backhaul antennas must be as compact as possible. As
The EtherHaul system also features low power requirements, which can be delivered via Power over Ethernet (PoE) or direct 48-volt power from the small cell. Those power features keep operating costs low even as EtherHaul delivers the capacity necessary for the backhaul traffic.
'The cost of Siklu compared to standard microwave is very competitive,' Hobbs added. 'The equipment itself is lower cost, and installing it can be done simply and inexpensively as well. All you need is line of sight to your cell site.'
In testing EtherHaul as a small cell backhaul solution, the equipment performed as expected, providing very stable throughput.
As the company continues to expand the 4G network,
'This is one more application where EtherHaul is the ideal solution,' said
Siklu builds gigabit millimeter-wave wireless backhaul solutions over the 70/80 GHz E-band and 60 GHz V-band. Based on a unique all-silicon design that reduces price, minimizes the form factor, and increases reliability, Siklu's radios are ideal for macro and small cell backhaul. Leveraging this state-of-the-art all- silicon radio technology, Siklu developed the EtherHaul-600T, a palm-sized all-outdoor small cell backhaul product that allows rapid deployment anywhere, including street lamps, rooftops, and the sides of buildings. Representing a crucial advance for mass deployment of small cells, the integrated, all-silicon Siklu approach brings down costs to a fraction of other millimeter wave solutions. Siklu's field-proven technology is becoming the top choice of Tier 1 operators for gigabit backhaul worldwide, and thousands of units have been deployed and are operating reliably in all weather conditions.
