Bermudan broadband services provider Horizon Communications (Wave Bermuda) has selected Irvine, California-based Fixed 5G millimetre wave (mmWave) company Siklu to supply it with its Terragraph-certified MultiHaul TG N366 nodes and companion MultiHaul TG terminal units for Gigabit Wireless Access (GWA), Smart City and security networks. The deployment will enable Horizon to provide gigabit-speed fixed-wireless broadband services to businesses throughout the island, as well as to homes in Hamilton, with residential coverage set to be expanded on a parish by parish basis over the coming months.
Commenting on the contract, Gilbert A Darrell, Founder of Horizon Communications, said: ‘Horizon has been impressed with Siklu’s Terragraph system and their level of support. With the N366 we have been able to deploy fibre equivalent speeds across buildings and light poles around Bermuda.’ He went on to add: ‘The service quality is great and it has enabled us to have a significantly faster installation time for our customers, compared to fibre or coaxial, which has contributed to pricing that is on average 20% less expensive than the competition.’
Siklu claims to deliver multi-gigabit wireless fibre connectivity in urban, suburban, and rural areas. Operating in the mmWave bands, it claims to offer the widest selection of mmWave products in the industry with a portfolio of 60GHz (V-Band) and 70/80GHz (E-Band) solutions in both PtP, PtMP and Mesh configurations.
