Safaricom deploys Aviat Multi-Band to dramatically lower their backhaul TCO

Safaricom, the largest telecom company in Kenya, recently selected Aviat’s WTM 4800 multi-band radio platform to support their 5G backhaul rollout.

Microwave spectrum cost is one of the largest TCO (total cost of ownership) elements in many countries around the world, and as capacity demands grow with 5G, more backhaul spectrum is required. Aviat multi-band provides the lowest TCO for 5G backhaul, especially in countries, like Kenya, where the cost of microwave spectrum is amongst the highest in the world.

Aviat recently completed a Multi-Band trial with Safaricom, deploying a link over a path length in excess of 10 kilometers. This trial proved that even over such a long link, multi-band was able to perform exceptionally well, supporting ultra-high capacity but at a small fraction of the cost of using licensed microwave spectrum alone.

Even for just a single 2 Gbps link, Aviat’s multi-band solution can save Safaricom over US$30,000 every year in spectrum fees. If Safaricom were to replace 100x 2.5 Gbps microwave links with Multi-Band, they would save US$7 million over three years.

Aviat has the only single-box multi-band solution on the market, which can lower your total spectrum costs and TCO.
