Rapid response is the new normal

Unforeseen events have led to major changes in how agencies work, creating even more dependence on the networks supporting them.

Public safety agencies were challenged as never before during the pandemic. Along with the increasing amount of mission-critical traffic to support public health and other emergency responses, agency networks are transitioning to IP/MPLS to support a growing range of applications and services. As 5G rolls out, agency networks will need to support even greater bandwidth demands with higher network capacity, speed, and reliability.

Aviat is your trusted partner with a rich history supporting mission-critical public safety networks. Our wireless backhaul systems enable high capacity, robust network security, reliability, and low total cost of ownership (TCO). As we have demonstrated over the past seven decades, Aviat will continue to provide best-of-breed solutions for complex critical infrastructure applications.

Public safety critical communication challenges


Public Safety networks are going through massive transformations to support new applications and growth. You may be managing the transition from TDM to IP/MPLS. You may need to share a common infrastructure for inter- and intra-agency first responder traffic.

You may be experimenting with bandwidth-intensive applications such as drones and HD mobile video, requiring increased network capacity and ultra-reliable connectivity to deliver real-time information. Your network needs to scale as demands on performance and capacity increase.

Public safety solutions for mission critical communications


Aviat wireless transport systems are purpose-built for environments that demand high levels of resilience, performance, and scalability. Our solutions provide multi-gigabit speeds, high capacity, and low latency to enable seamless and secure connectivity.

We are the US-based leader in designing and supporting mission-critical public safety backbone networks, and we provide engineering, installation, support, and services as agencies require. Most importantly, we minimize the risk, complexity, and cost of wireless transport.
