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.
