The Future of Utility Networks

Redefining Utility Infrastructure

Utilities are in the midst of rapid change. There is increased demand for advanced technology, the pressure to deliver on Smart Cities, serving a mobile workforce, plus the drive for renewable energy sources and sustainability. Additionally, as first responders, a utilities organization – operational, administrative, crews, fleets – must be connected 24/7. At the heart of supporting all these requirements is network modernization and, at the forefront, transitioning legacy systems to IP/MPLS strategically and cost-effectively.

Aviat: Powering Next-Gen Connectivity

To ease network migration and deliver the always-on performance required by our utilities customers, Aviat wireless transport systems ultra-reliable, high-speed, low-latency, power-efficient, high-density wireless connectivity. If you are deploying a Private 5G network today, connecting to a public 5G network, or modernizing your network for the future, our goal is optimize your network for peak performance, while minimizing your year-over-year costs.


Resilient Routers for Utility Networks

This paper outlines the features, hardware, and software capabilities of the CTR 8700 and how they can be applied to build a resilient IP/MPLS transport network for utilities applications and services in Electric, Water or Gas companies. The key MPLS features, and protocols are explained along with their applications in utilities transport networks. Configuration examples are outlined to show how the CTR 8700 can be integrated with external transport network links such as microwave, fiber, or leased circuits. Network Management features are also listed including the ProVision Plus Element and Service Management system that simplifies the monitoring, diagnostics, and provisioning of the IP/MPLS network.

We know your struggle

Your legacy TDM assets need to be carefully and efficiently migrated to IP. Distributed energy and substation automation in the Smart Grid era require you to provide more secure monitoring and control. Grid security requires protection from cyber threats to protect grid performance and assets. Your 6 GHz spectrum may be under threat from Wi-Fi6e.

As the need for network modernization puts increased pressure on your budget, reevaluating your infrastructure has become an imperative.

What are your challenges?

  • Backhaul capacity
  • Smart Grid / Safe Cities
  • 5G
  • Legacy applications support
  • Link reliability
  • Monitoring and control
  • New applications support
  • Network security
  • Capital equipment costs
  • Network management
  • Operating expenses

Health Assurance Software

Utilities network operators are always seeking to improve network performance and reliability, but real-time monitoring and management of a microwave network is challenging and labor-intensive. We designed our Health Assurance Software (HAS) to solve those issues.

It’s a cloud-based software tool that continuously analyzes a network and automatically identifies potential problems before traffic impacts occur. By doing so, HAS ensures the highest possible level of network performance and reliability, while reducing operational resource requirements and lowering total cost of ownership.

Why choose us?

We don’t stand still when it comes to driving innovation in wireless transport technology. Our technology will help you transform your backhaul network by optimizing its performance, simplifying its management, and lowering its costs. We developed:

The highest power digital microwave radio ever built

The industry’s only single box multi-band radio

The industry’s first integrated IP/MPLS router
