Here is what some of our customers and analysts say about us

Aviat Networks is a founding partner in TIP’s Wireless Backhaul Project Group, which is addressing disaggregation of wireless backhaul systems with a larger ecosystem of hardware and software providers,” said David Hutton, Chief Engineer, TIP. “Co-authored by five Tier 1 operators, this group is releasing its technical specification which promises to provide lower-cost, more advanced wireless transport solutions. Aviat Networks has been developing the first prototypes of the disaggregated wireless backhaul system. We are really excited to have Aviat Networks as part of this effort.

Multi-Band is an important technology in meeting the capacity, latency and reliability requirements of 5G transport,” states Richard Webb, Associate Director of Mobile Transport Research at IHS Markit TMT (an Informa company). “Aviat’s new WTM 4800 single-box Multi-Band product offer microwave users flexibility for 5G backhaul applications, allow them to minimize the number of devices they need and control capital, deployment and operational expenses. Aviat Store and Aviat Design are also very important pieces of the Aviat value proposition.

The new WTM 4800 radio is about simplicity. The Multi-Band variant simplifies fronthaul/backhaul sites by reducing current configurations of multiple radios, cables, and a coupler to a single integrated radio unit. Additionally, the Multi-Band link planning tool on the AviatCloud simplifies the radio link design and planning down to six clicks of a mouse.

testimonial Earl Lum
President , EJL Wireless

Aviat recognized the need for cost efficient, reliable 10 Gbps backhaul and capitalized on it with the WTM 4800, which is a unique single-box Multi-Band radio design.  A single-box Multi-Band radio not only provides reliability, distance, and capacity, but also helps solve the OPEX business case by streamlining the amount of equipment (and thus cost) historically required for a Multi-Band solution.  Sky Light Research expects E-Band to be the sweet spot of the microwave radio market over the next five years, growing more than 200 percent by 2023.

Service providers need lower total backhaul cost per gigabit, especially with 5G requiring less latency and greater transport bandwidth. Aviat Networks continues to lower the cost of installation, planning and operation by being first to provide an integrated Multi-Band 10Gb microwave product and a unique Multi-Band link design tool. In the next five years, Service providers will spend over $12B on 4G and 5G microwave backhaul including multi-carrier or multi-band equipment, so simplifying the design will be a winning strategy for service provider deployment.

As they drive new generations of high capacity microwave into the backhaul for 3G and LTE, L2 will not be sufficient for the long term needs of many mobile operators. In a recent Heavy Reading survey of mobile operators using microwave backhaul, we found that 42 percent of mobile operators believe that L3 is 'very likely' to be needed in the access layer of the backhaul within three years.

As a router, CTR 8540 will enable a range of new IP and VPN services for our mobile backhaul and enterprise applications. Unlike other microwave radios that require adding an expensive, separate IP/MPLS router, CTR 8540 is the only product we found that integrates the microwave radio and IP routing features we need. As the incumbent carrier in Chile, Entel places importance on reducing the number of devices we provision at each cell site to save space and money. CTR does that for us by combining these two functions in one solution.

Robert Tan Juan Andres Guzman Barrios
