Siklu PtMP Millimeter Wave Wireless Examined

By Brian Karas, Published Apr 18, 2017, 09:29am EDT

Siklu is attempting to make millimeter-wave wireless systems more applicable in the security industry. Two years ago, they started marketing to the security industry with their Point to Point systems. 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.
