Spatial Streaming Explained

27th July 2017 – Written by Iain Spooner

Spatial streaming or multiplexing (often shortened to SM or SMX) is a transmission technique used in MIMO wireless communication to transmit independent and separately coded data signals, so called streams, from each of the multiple transmit antennas. This results in the space being reused, or multiplexed, more than one time.

5Gbps! - Siklu Etherhaul EH 5500-FD

25th May 2017 – Written by Peter Cronshaw

I remember, like with most technology, being in awe at the specs first time around but retrospectively having a good’ol laugh at myself for doing so. Building a new PC with the dizzying heights of 5Gb HDD internal storage that at the time was the peak of what you could get your hands on, unless you worked for Nasa. Now, couldn’t even house a tiny slither of my music collection.

SDN -Software Defined Networking explained

21st April 2017 – Written by Iain Spooner

Software defined networking is a way of looking at how networking and cloud solutions should be automated, efficient, and scalable in a world where application services may be provided locally, by the data centre, or even within a cloud. This is impossible to achieve with a rigid/ legacy system that’s both challenging to manage, maintain, and upgrade. Moving forward, you need simplicity, flexibility, and the ability to quickly scale up and grow to meet ever changing and ever increasing IT and business needs.

The maths behind 4 stream 2.4GHz data rates explained

14th April 2017 – Written by Joe Budnar-Hunt

As any wireless professional will tell you, data rates or signalling rates are the theoretical speeds that a wireless access point can provide under perfect lab conditions, using all available spatial streams at the highest possible modulation rate. The truth of it, is that real-time throughput speeds are always a mere percentage of these data rates, usually less than 50% due to wireless being a half-duplex medium. However, calculating data rates and using these for advertising purposes is common practice among wireless manufacturers and resellers alike.

The benefits of the Siklu EtherHaul-2X00 Series

A common requirement for our customers is to provide a solution which will provide 1Gbps Full-Duplex connectivity between two sites. Often the answer to the problem is an E-band solution, meaning a set of radios that work within the 70-80Ghz frequency.
