Siklu has released a dual-band solution to meet the demand for wireless multi-band equipment.
Siklu’s cost-effective carrier-grade Etherhaul-series of radios (1200Fx, 2500FX and 8010FX) include a parabolic dish antenna as well as a secondary 5.xGHz feed. You simply need to pair your Siklu Etherhaul radio with any 5.xGHz radio, like our RADWIN 2000D+, Ligowave Rapidfire, Cambium PTP550, Mimosa B5, or any other 5GHz radio that you might already own and want to repurpose. This combination will ensure a 100% uptime and 2Gbps 99% of the time, over a distance of up to 20km, depending on the Siklu Etherhaul radio you choose.
This is the ideal combination for when you are worried about pushing your EtherHaul link too far (making it vulnerable to heavy weather conditions) or simply want to increase your capacity. The 5.xGHz radio will be available as a fail-over link combined with the interference-free Etherhaul link. The backup link is in stand-by mode, ready to be activated for the rare occasions during the year when the mmWave E-Band radio might fail due to heavy weather conditions.
This solution will not only save you money on licensing fees but will also cut down on your tower rental costs, as you will only have to install one dish instead of 2.
