FAIR LAWN, N.J. and LAS VEGAS, Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Siklu Inc., the global market leader in the 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.

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 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 that there are many cities and communities that are simply not on the roll out timeline of fiber Gigabit broadband networks.  These communities, as any other community or network, can benefit from Hybrid Fiber Wireless (HFW) Gigabit networks as a fast and economical way to bring Gigabit connectivity everywhere." 

"We recognize the significance that Gigabit enabled telecommunications facilities will inevitably have on how we communicate and the way we live our lives.  The benefits that abundant bandwidth provides should not be limited to only those communities that have the economics supporting a pure fiber network build out," said Tom Reiman, the President of Broavada Communications and Founder of The Broadband Group.  "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.  Siklu is an ideal partner to advance that agenda. Broavada and Siklu have joined forces at a critical time in the growing relevance of broadband infrastructure and services."  Reiman added, "Our goal is to completely understand the operational, financial, and regulatory issues that must be addressed to make certain homes, offices, and Community Anchor Institutions have immediate access to the most advanced communication infrastructure possible.  Once this is achieved, we see Siklu finding a place in the market with innovative service providers throughout North America."

Working together, Siklu and Broavada will find and select communities that might benefit from this infrastructure and its services.  Reiman adds, "We will determine how these facilities might best be managed, connected, and designed to serve residential and commercial customers in the target communities. If we do this right, we recognize the significant influence this may also have on regional economic development efforts."

This unique partnership will bring new opportunities to the industry and provide the excellence needed to meet the needs of next generation connectivity.  The personality and destiny of any great city or community is in how it defines its ability to communicate across many disciplines.  This partnership is poised to significantly advance that agenda.

The Siklu multi-Gigabit throughput radios are the market's most cost-effective solutions for short-range fiber like wireless point-to-point links. The technology is based on radio frequency transmission in the unlicensed V-Band and the lightly licensed E-Band.  These run in the 60-80GHz range. They are based on more than 30 patents, and include the first SiGe E-band chip and other unique achievements. Siklu has sold and deployed tens of thousands of radios worldwide to service providers, mobile operators, wireless security network operators, and enterprises.
