Aviat Networks and the San Bernardino County Information Services Department teamed up in early April to provide critical communications in support of a new field hospital at the San Bernardino Fairgrounds. The hospital will provide relief for any medical facility overflow that occurs in the county during the COVID-19 pandemic. The fairgrounds are in Victorville, alongside Interstate 15 in southeastern California and around forty miles from the county seat of San Bernardino. The new hop will link staff and bedside healthcare providers at the fairgrounds Convention Hall to the people, data, and resources needed to treat patients and save lives. Continue reading
For more than two years now, the FCC has been evaluating the necessity and feasibility of opening up the 6 GHz band to unlicensed users of a wide variety of devices. They’ve published multiple notices of their findings, and on April 2, 2020, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai issued a draft version of the official rules, allowing unlicensed operation in the 6 GHz band—over the entire 1,200 MHz spectrum of that band. A final vote on April 23 opened the door to Wi-Fi 6e. Continue reading
Aviat Networks recently partnered with Cruzio Internet of Santa Cruz to help families in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. Low-income families have been among the hardest hit, and with the increase in internet access demands, the need for fast, reliable internet for all is imperative.
Hot on the heels of the FCC’s announcement to open the 6 GHz band to unlicensed radios, we recently announced the launch of our new FCC Licenses Layer feature. Our new FCC Licenses Layer will allow users to overlay a layer with existing FCC licenses around one site within a radius. The feature will show users what spot frequencies are available in the area where they want to deploy their microwave links. Sign in or register for Aviat Design today to take the new feature for a spin. www.aviatcloud.com
Point-to-point microwaves links are the de facto standard for connecting infrastructure over vast distances quickly and cost-effectively. Lower frequencies, like 6 GHz, allows a network to span long distances with high capacity while maintaining robust availability, especially during rain fade. These characteristics have led to rapid, widespread adoption with more than 40000 links in the 6 GHz frequency band deployed across the US. Continue reading
