The device is roughly the size of an Apple iPhone X.

Siklu has added a compact terminal unit to its MultiHaul series of point-to-multipoint millimetre wave radios.

It says the new cTU T201 is a self-aligning mmWave radio that is ideal for low profile installations anywhere.

The firm says the cTU T201 condenses MultiHaul’s “rich” feature set into a device that measures 6.5 x 3.1 x 1 inches – roughly the size of an iPhone X. Siklu claims that makes it the smallest mmWave radio currently available on the market.
