Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology, has announced that Siklu, a leading manufacturer of gigabit throughput wireless products, has joined the Arecont Vision Technology Partner Program.  Siklu products are available in the Arecont Vision MegaLab as part of the agreement to enable pre-installation integration and new product testing.
“The Arecont Vision megapixel cameras have completely changed the landscape on how security consultants and systems integrators design video surveillance systems,” says Ilan Moshe, general manager of North America, Siklu. “The Siklu radios are designed to handle large bandwidth applications without the need to trench or pull fiber optics.  Wirelessly transmitting high data rates at a cost effective price gives more users access to high quality, high resolution cameras for their video security system.”
The Siklu gigabit throughput E-band (70/80 Ghz) and V-band (60 Ghz) radios are the market’s most cost-effective solutions for short-range wireless point-to-point links. They are based on more than 30 patents, and include the first SiGe E-band chip and other unique achievements.  Siklu has sold thousands of radios worldwide to service providers, mobile operators, wireless security network operators, and enterprises. And with 30% market share, Siklu firmly leads the millimeter wave radio market. Top operators have tested their radios rigorously, and they are now deployed in all climates, working smoothly even through monsoons and hurricanes.
“The innovation that Siklu has put into their products allows for customers to take advantage of the latest and greatest, best-of-breed video technology available in the security market”, says Jason Schimpf, director of sales operations & partner relations, Arecont Vision.  “I am excited to have a company like Siklu in the Arecont Vision Technology Partner Program because they bring more reliable wireless capability to the benefit of our customers.”
The Arecont Vision Technology Partner Program includes sales, development, and support contacts between the two companies in order to better engage with end user customers and integrators, integrate new features and technology, and quickly resolve customer support issues.
