Siklu, the market leader in mmWave wireless solutions, has provided a backbone network of gigabit radios to approximately 1000 homes and business subscribers of Gigamex, a leading mexiquense ISP in the City of Toluca.
The main challenge in connecting the network was ensuring enough capacity for the access networks. Saturation in the 5GHz frequency band in the city center did not allow them to work to the maximum capacity of their previous legacy wireless radios, which could provide only less than 200 Mbps. This prevented Gigamex from integrating new subscribers into their network and expanding their coverage areas in Toluca.
Gigamex searched for an alternative wireless solution that was not affected by the plethora of 5GHz WiFi Aps by operating on a separate, cleaner spectrum. Siklu mmWave Point to Point solutions, operating in the 70-80Ghz spectrum with over 17GHz of bandwidth available, were chosen after an in-depth market research and investigation of previous success stories worldwide, to provide the required capacity and fast delivery time and ensure local technical presence.
