Siklu and Exertis Hammer Announce Business Partnership Delivering mmWave Wireless Connectivity across Northern Europe

Basingstoke: 20th April 2020 — Value-add distributor Exertis Hammer, and the global market leader in millimetre-wave wireless solutions, Siklu, today announced a distribution agreement that will greatly expand Siklu’s reach to wireless connectivity resellers, datacentres, integrators, service providers and OEMs in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Benelux and Scandinavia.

Exertis Hammer has been supplying Ethernet, Fibre Channel and InfiniBand networks for nearly two decades, and can supply networks for the campus, the datacentre, storage and high performance computing deployments. As part of the arrangement, Exertis Hammer will carry and distribute Siklu’s millimetre wave wireless solutions to their vertical markets.

The UK and Europe leading distributor will be able to supply their new and existing customers with the full Siklu product range, which includes radios in the 60 GHz and 70/80GHz bands. Products offered through Exertis Hammer will include Siklu’s EtherHaul Hundred Series and EtherHaul Kilo Series that can support deployments with up to 10 Gb throughput, and up to 4.3 miles (6.9km), as well as the MultiHaul Series for automatically aligning rapid deployment.

Siklu leads the millimetre wave radio market, and offers excellent fibre extension solutions, for delivering multigigabit connectivity free from 5GHz interference. Siklu’s mmWave radios provide fibre-like performance with the speed and flexibility of a wireless deployment.

For companies in time-pressured industries, applying Siklu wireless connectivity solutions to the already existing networks helps shorten the deployment timelines. The agreement between Exertis Hammer and Siklu will allow many UK and European businesses, as well as public organisations, have the unprecedented access to best in class mmWave wireless connectivity.

“Our new partnership with Siklu extends our existing wireless networking product portfolio even further, enabling us to offer our customers end-to-end multi gigabit wireless networks focussing on high capacity smart city applications”, said Nick Powling, Exertis Hammer General Manager for Enterprise Components.

“With the ever-increasing demand for true Gigabit connectivity, Siklu is committed to expanding access to our millimetre-wave wireless products for our resellers and partners”, said Luke O’Kelly, Northern Europe Sales Director from Siklu. “Naturally, we are excited to announce our distribution agreement with Exertis Hammer covering Northern Europe, the UK and Ireland. Leveraging Exertis Hammer’s expertise and reach in these regions will enable Siklu’s continued success as the global leader in the millimetre-wave wireless market.”
