Siklu SmartHaul™ Network Operations Applications

Wireless networks are growing at a pace that outstrips past deployments by a wide margin. With applications ranging from IoT to 5G fixed wireless, wireless networks are also becoming increasingly complex. It is no longer just about selling and installing boxes, of critical importance to the profitability and optimal operation of these networks relies on the systems and support software offered.

This challenge goes beyond essential management, and has extended into the realm of financial analysis for ROI, predictable performance and even automated whole network design. The software suite in the Software Tools package that Siklu offers meets these challenges.

SmartHaul™ WiNDE


Experience Not Necessary

Siklu SmartHaul™ Wireless Network Design Engine (WiNDE) automates the many tasks involved in designing a complete millimetre wave wireless network. WiNDE integration in an operator’s planning environment takes days compared to traditional tools that can take weeks or months. The engine reduces days of complex work and tedious details to hours. Intuitive and easy to use, the 5-step wizard will guide a user with 40 years or 40 days of network design experience to the same swift results.

Bill of Materials

WiNDE will assemble a detailed Bill of Materials with all the required accessories and licenses. The user can amend and annotate the BOM with additions or subtractions or include 3rd party deliverables, easily maintaining a consistent project scope.

Topology Design Optimised for Cost or Performance

SmartHaul™ WiNDE supports traditional Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP) designs as well as our MultiHaul Terragraph (MH TG) mesh topologies. The app crunches through thousands of possible designs in an iterative process to optimize the network for performance or cost, with any mix of P2MP, Point-to-Point (P2P), rings, mesh, fibre-links, single- or multi-PoP wireline interfaces. The resulting designs are presented graphically and numerically for straightforward evaluation of the results.

As networks continue to grow in scope and coverage, our range of Siklu products ensures customers will have the right piece of equipment for every point in their network.  However, with increasing diversity and product choices in the market, the complexity of the network design can also increase. Siklu’s Wireless Network Design Engine simplifies these design challenges. The WiNDE takes as input all the locations to be served in a given mmWave network, and using cost and performance as factors automatically recommends  some cost effective and robust implementations to choose from. In addition to an optimised network design, the tool creates a Bill of Materials to build the selected design as well as the configuration files to ensure operations as designed.

SmartHaul™ MASON

Management, Automation, and Self-Organising Network

Siklu SmartHaul Mason

Siklu’s new SmartHaul MASON provides complete network information at the Network Operator’s fingertips –topology and connectivity, inventory, faults data, performance and more.  It is a modular system that operates in cloud or VM environments and streamlines operations by supporting faster troubleshooting via an improved correlation between ports, links, and devices with hierarchical propagation, identifying capacity bottlenecks or availability with user-defined KPIs and by the automation of repetitive tasks.

Specifically, SmartHaul MASON includes Siklu’s unique “Runner” subsystem, which is a software-defined network (SDN) controller for the Self-Organising Network (SON) operation of the mmWave network.

SmartHaul™ Element Management System (EMS)

Complete Lifecycle Management for Siklu Products

Siklu EMS SmartHaul

The SmartHaul™ EMS is a powerful yet easy-to-use solution enabling customers to configure, monitor, troubleshoot and administer millimetre wave networks large and small. The EMS is equally at ease with small networks of 10s of links to large-scale networks with 1,000’s links. As such it is highly scalable and highly available, from light-touch SaaS service, or a single server configuration all the way up to large distributed and virtualised implementations. Coupled with SNMPv2/3 support toward the radios and a rich modern REST full Northbound API toward higher level manages and Operations Support Systems (OSS), the EMS can act as a standalone management system or be integrated into a larger Operations environment.

The feature-rich EMS delivers everything one would expect in a carrier-grade EMS including:

  • Either tree or map views of the network
  • Simple yet powerful dashboards for network status, spectrum use, device status, inventory and more
  • Fully configurable alarm thresholds and notifications
  • Configures devices by device or in bulk
  • Administration of user accounts, domain management, security
  • Managed SW upgrades

With the SmartHaul™ EMS customers will realise all the benefits of an advanced EMS system running their mmWave network. The ability to maximise network performance, and identify and correct faults in near real-time is available either as a cloud option or on a private server or Virtual Machine (VM).


SmartHaul™ Link Budget Calculator (LBC)

Siklu SmartHaul LBC

Siklu SmartHaul™ Link Budget Calculator is a highly predictive, accurate online cloud-based tool that helps predict the performance of a proposed link before installation and site surveys.

Using this powerful yet simple tool customers and System Integrators can plan on paper link performance and generate estimates of availability vs distance.


  • Evaluate the expected availability and capacity of a Siklu link by City, Region or coordinates.
  • Assist in selecting the best product and antenna fit for your network.
  • Generate HTML or PDF SLA documentation with customers.
  • The tool utilises 40-year rain data to simulate real-world conditions.
