C Spire, the largest privately held wireless operator in the US announced a partnership with Siklu, a market leader in mmWave wireless solutions, to use multi-gigabit wireless technology to backhaul high speed internet service to thousands of homes and businesses in Mississippi.

C Spire is using Siklu solutions to extend existing fiber optic assets for last mile connections in neighborhoods and business districts in over 150 Mississippi towns and communities as part of a push to rapidly bring the next-generation services to more consumers and businesses at affordable prices. The high-capacity, small form factor, carrier class EtherHaul products are easily and quickly installed enabling rapid internet connections and providing C Spire a cost-effective tool to expand its internet coverage footprint.

Operating in the 60,70-80 GHz uncongested mmWave bands, Siklu's point-to-point and point-to-multipoint radios have the spectrum and capacity to deliver cost-effective, interference-free connections up to 10 Gbps, giving C Spire the ability to serve customers beyond the reach of its fiber networks. C Spire is using its 8,400 route miles of fiber backbone to reach hundreds of neighborhoods, cities and towns with high speed internet and the last-mile backhaul is handled by using services from Siklu.

Our service is backhauled by Siklu's carrier grade solutions enabling us to deliver high speed internet access without the arbitrary data caps usually associated with LTE or satellite services.

Eyal Assa, CEO, Siklu
As a leader in mmWave solutions, we're excited to work with C Spire to provide 5G fixed wireless connectivity, which enables them to offer affordable, high-speed internet access to more customers.
