Siklu, the global market leader in 5G mmWave wireless solutions, announced today the general availability of its new Terminal Unit for its industry-leading PtMP MultiHaul™ series: the MultiHaul™ compact TU (cTU) T201. With the cTU, the size of equipment on the customer premises side of the system has been reduced by more than 85% in total volume, when compared to Siklu’s standard TU, while maintaining the same Gigabit performance.
The T201 comes in a pocket size package measuring only 6.5”x 3.1”x 1” (165 mm x 80 mm x 25 mm), weighs approximately eight ounces (250 gr), and comes in a selection of colors in order to blend in better with existing surroundings.
The cTU “smart package” is designed for a quick and simple, one-person installation. The integrated Anymount allows for pole or wall attachment, and the installation is completed with a single CAT5e cable into the premises. The cTU is powered with standard “PoE” from an Ethernet device. An optional PoE injector is included in the package to guarantee power in non-standard installations. The narrow-beam connection from the neighborhood base unit (BU) is aligned automatically and provisioning from the BU is automatic for any Terminal Unit (TU and cTU).
The cTU’s compact and slim form-factor is available in multiple color options allowing installation everywhere, eliminating costly site preparations and long cable runs. The solution is also supported by Siklu’s SmartHaul™ software management tools for automated network design and planning with Siklu radios.
