Siklu’s Wireless Gigabit technology will run the backhaul of the new wireless broadband network at the Aurora Sports Complex in Colorado


The aurora Sports Complex in Colorado is a wide area complex accommodating around 350,000 visitors a year. It was in need of a high speed broadband network to facilitate online payments and public Wi-Fi, and for day to day operations of the massive complex.  An intricate irrigation system hindering the construction of a traditional broadband network in the Aurora Sports complex in Colorado, forced Netunwired LCC to look for a wireless solution. The choice fell on Sikulu’s high availability, point-to-point Radio systems due to their out-of-the-box, easy to deploy and inherent interference-free qualities said Netunwired LLC. Owner and Manager Tim Stewart.

Israel based Siklu Inc. produces Gigabit E-band and V-band radios for short-range wireless point-to-point links, based on more than 30 patents. It has recently reported its share of total millimeter-wave market to be 29%, making its radios the most deployed mmWave radios for a consecutive 5th year. Siklu products seem to have gained special popularity in projects involving network solutions for complex environmental conditions, where the construction of infrastructure constitutes a problem due to terrain or building restrictions. Siklu recently installed their small scale products in a leading Ski resort and the Historical Baltimore harbor.

mmWave – the “Next Generation Wirless Backhaul Spectrum”?

Congestion in the common frequency spectrums used for Wireless backhaul is becoming a problem for operators around the world. The newly allocated E-Band spectrum (71-76 GHz, 81-86 GHz and 92-95 GHz) has clear technological and economic advantages and might become a popular solution for congestion issues. The 13 GHz allocated in this spectrum allows multi-Gigabit per second capacities far exceeding the 6-38 GHz bandwidth-limited frequencies. E-Band frequencies have also have a relatively low atmospheric attenuation window, making them attractive for high capacity wireless transmissions. E-nand Wireless system have yet another advantage as the licensing costs are lower than in common Band widths.
