FAIR LAWN, N.J. and LAS VEGAS, Nov. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Siklu Inc., the global market leader in millimeter-wave technology, and Las Vegas, Nevada based Broavada Communications, LLC, a subsidiary of the national technology consulting firm, The Broadband Group, have announced an historic partnership to accelerate the deployment of millimeter wave Gigabit wireless networks.
Working together, Siklu and Broavada will seek out and select communities and multifamily properties that might benefit from Hybrid Fiber Wireless (HFW) Gigabit networks as a fast and economical way to bring Gigabit connectivity everywhere.
"We will determine how these facilities might best be managed, connected, and designed to serve residential and commercial customers in the target communities," said Tom Reiman, president of Broavada Communications and founder of The Broadband Group. "If we do this right, we recognize the significant influence this may also have on regional economic development efforts."
Siklu offers small, millimeter wave based, multi-Gigabit radio solutions, applicable to a wide range of Ethernet deployment scenarios. The products are ideal for communities and multifamily properties that require Gigabit connectivity, but do not enjoy the economies of scale to "rebuild" pure fiber networks.
Izik Kirshenbaum (Siklu's co-founder, chairman and president) noted, "As the business of telecommunications is transformed by the drive to achieve real Gigabit residential broadband, Siklu is partnering with top industry leaders to provide the high performance wireless connectivity needed to expedite these services. Our partnership with Broavada Communications builds on the integrity and value its parent company, The Broadband Group, has brought to cities, municipalities, utilities, and master planned communities for the past 25 years."
"We recognize the significance that Gigabit enabled telecommunications facilities will inevitably have on how we communicate and the way we live our lives," Reiman noted. "The benefit that abundant bandwidth provides should not be limited to only those communities that have the economics supporting a pure fiber network build out. While The Broadband Group maintains its independent role as a neutral advisor to our clients, we recognize the need to bring innovative new products and services to the industry through Broavada Communications. Broavada and Siklu have joined forces at a critical time in the growing relevance of broadband infrastructure and services."
