Overview

The WTM 4000 is the industry’s first microwave router. It is a fully integrated microwave networking solution, delivering a unique combination of high capacity all-packet transport, Carrier Ethernet, IP/MPLS and PWE services and comprehensive mission critical microwave features. The WTM 4000 is purpose-built for microwave, enabling operators to prepare for the all-IP future.
