Siklu’s ExtendMM solution delivers Gigabit throughput with weather-proof availability up to 3.5 miles

SIKLU MM

Winter is soon upon us.  Boston has had its first Noreaster of the season and Chicago has already been hit with gale-force winds. So how do deliver highly available Gigabit throughput for distances of 3.5 miles in this inclement weather?

Siklu has created an extended range solution that creates an always-on, all-weather, extended range connection by combining any Siklu EtherHaul-1200 millimeter wave radio (1ft. antenna) with any previously-deployed sub-6 GHz radio.

Siklu’s ExtendMM™ is an extended range solution for all our wireless service providers operating over longer distances. With a single click you turn the two radios into a single high-performance long-distance link that delivers the capacity you need over the distance you require. For inclement weather, when a significant rain event happens, the ExtendMM™ solution automatically switches the high priority traffic, without dropping sessions, from the primary EtherHaul path to the sub-6 GHz path. As the rain cell passes, the link immediately returns to Gigabit speed. No additional networking equipment is needed and you can ensure guaranteed bandwidth and uptime to your customers during these inclement winter months.

If you have one of the following sub 6 GHz radios installed, ExtendMM creates a seamless solution using your installed equipment.
