Siklu PtMP Millimeter Wave Wireless Examined

By: Brian Karas, Published on Apr 18, 2017

Siklu is attempting to make millimeter-wave wireless systems more applicable in the security industry.

Now, the company is shipping what they claim is the first outdoor point to multipoint (PtMP) millimeter wave wireless product in the physical security industry.

Siklu claims this new product solves addresses several concerns, including cost and setup complexity, which we examine in this report.
