Millimeter-wave (mmWave) fixed wireless systems vendor Siklu has announced a distribution agreement with Hills Australia, a leading security and networking technology supplier in Australia.

Hills technology partners and customers now have direct access to Siklu's gigabit-speed, end-to-end solutions for Hills market segments in security, smart cities, backhaul, and critical infrastructure. 

Siklu radios and related equipment are currently deployed in some of the most high-security facilities around the world, for temporary events and as part of critical backhaul network infrastructure for broadband access and Wi-Fi services, such as that for the town of Gawler, north of Adelaide. 

Siklu equipment also helps protect critical infrastructures such as power plants and production facilities in the petrochemical sector.

“We are looking forward to the opportunities resulting from this partnership, particularly in the security networks sector, and solving the 'Gigabit gap' challenge that customers often face when the fiber is unavailable, is too expensive, or takes too long to deploy," said Ronen Ben-Hamou, Siklu’s chief executive.

Siklu delivers multi-Gigabit "wireless fiber" connectivity in urban, suburban, and rural areas.

Operating in the millimeter-wave bands, leading service providers and system integrators use Siklu's wireless solutions to provide 5G Gigabit Wireless Access services.

Siklu solutions are ideal for Smart City projects requiring extra capacity such as video security, Wi-Fi backhaul, and municipal network connectivity — all running over one network.

"Siklu is a key vendor of technology for Wireless Backhaul and Last Mile connectivity for Wireless ISPs, Mining, and Municipal Surveillance," said Carl Jefferys, general manager for IT product sales at Hills.

"The opportunity for Hills to distribute the Siklu portfolio is an exciting one as the products are complementary to our IP Networking and Surveillance Security solutions."
