Introducing Virtual Fiber

Industrial Grade Fixed Wireless Designed to Support Assets in Motion

Aviat Networks’ Virtual Fiber (VF) platform is a powerful, industrial-grade solution for providing reliable, high-speed connectivity in extreme environments. Our all-outdoor radios and self-aligning antennas, combined with Aviat’s best-in-class wireless transport solutions, are ideal for last mile connectivity in industries such as oil and gas, mining, transportation, and more.

Unlike traditional VSAT links and narrowband solutions, which can be expensive and prone to latency issues, VF uses ground-based transmitters and receivers to transmit data over the air, providing fast and reliable internet access. In addition to being more cost-effective than other solutions, VF has higher capacity and can support more users and devices simultaneously in mission-critical scenarios.

VF can also be used as a cost-effective alternative to traditional VSAT connections in locations where infrastructure is already in place. And in exploratory sites, VF can be used in conjunction with VSAT links to provide a flexible and adaptable solution for internet connectivity. By leveraging the strengths of both technologies, VF can provide a reliable and cost-effective solution for businesses and organizations in need of internet connectivity in a wide range of locations

Product Features

Platform Durability and Adaptability

The Platform is designed to excel in mission-critical networks where perfection is essential. It streamlines deployment while reducing costs. This versatile solution provides 24×7 dependable connectivity to people, assets, and applications. It empowers you to adapt rapidly to new challenges and explore new frontiers.

Nomadic Capabilities for Easy Deployment

One standout feature of Aviat’s platform is its nomadic capabilities. This feature allows for effortless setup and reconfiguration in diverse locations without the need for specialized engineering services. This flexibility is particularly valuable for organizations that must establish temporary networks in various scenarios, including mines, wells, construction sites, and disaster relief efforts.

Hardened for Extreme Environments

In demanding environments where equipment faces extreme conditions, Aviat Networks’ Virtual Fiber (VF) platform shines. We go the extra mile to reinforce our VF products with advanced protective measures. Our process includes Electroless Nickel plating for the VF casing to prevent corrosion, followed by powder coating. Additionally, we utilize plated connectors designed to keep moisture at bay and reduce corrosion. These precautions safeguard our VF products from damage and extend their lifespan in harsh settings. The application of Electroless Nickel plating and plated connectors equips our VF products to endure extreme temperatures, humidity, and corrosive substances, ensuring peak performance and durability in challenging environments

Product Features

Aviat’s Virtual Fiber platform incorporates our industry leading hardened RDL 3000 base station, ruggedized CPEs, and nomadic self-aligning antennas to provide a mission-critical wireless network that reduces your TCO (Total Cost of Ownership). VF utilizes software defined radios for simplified PtP and PtMP wireless deployments providing high synchronous data speeds of up to 440 Mbps of bidirectional traffic.

Virtual Fiber solutions are designed for the toughest environmental conditions, with options available certified for Zone 1 and Zone 2 ATEX/HAZLOC deployments. They support spectrum from 450 MHz to 6 GHz. and can be deployed in temperatures between -40° to +75°C. Virtual Fiber provides secure AES-256-bit encryption and reliable high-speed connectivity in challenging, isolated locations, and over rough terrain where no infrastructure exists.

RDL 3000

RDL 3000 is the base station and heart of the VF platform. It is highly spectrally efficient with up to 93% capacity efficiency for PMP (Point to Multi Point). The RDL 3000 utilizes GPS synchronization and Tx/Rx filtering for improved interference mitigation and frequency re-use. It can be deployed in PtP or PtMP architecture.

RDL 3000 Connect

RDL 3000 Connect is a ruggedized software-defined wireless terminal that is standards-based and provides interoperability with TCP/IP, Ethernet, Serial, SCADA, sensor devices and other systems. It provides a cost-effective solution for serial and Ethernet communications in a single platform.

Ras Elite

RAS Elite is a self-aligning antenna system designed to support assets in motion while reducing the costs and staff associated with relocating assets in the field. Rapid Auto Provision (RAP) allows the RAS Elite to establish a fast and secure link automatically. There are no moving parts, and it is a rugged IP-67 rated construction with a built-in GPS receiver.

Characteristics

Main Benefits

Rugged

Hardened to withstand the very worst weather and conditions

Designed for harsh conditions and industrial deployments, extremely robust construction, no fans.

High Transmit Power

High power performance in a micro-cell footprint

Small size and high transmit power are a first for LTE networks. Higher transmit power increases cell coverage enabling fewer base stations.

Nomadic

Fully automated self-aligning antennas

RAS antennas support assets that move periodically and are self-aligning allowing for flexible installation on vehicle roofs, telescopic masts, and trailers.

Software Defined Radios

Simple Provisioning and Upgrades

VF’s software defined radios are rapidly deployed, managed and upgraded under a single NMS (Network Management System).

Layer 2 Architecture

Simplifies providing last mile networks

Virtual fiber supports Layer 2 architecture and provides transparent access and minimal operator configuration.

Smaller Channel Sizes

Support for Congested RF Environments

Smaller channel sizes allow operators to secure a reliable connection in noisy environments.

AES 256-bit encryption

Secures network from digital threats

Virtual Fiber is security harden with AES 256-bit encryption to keep mission critical networks safe from digital threats.

Q&A

Why Private LTE?

Private LTE solutions have a small footprint and scalable core that simplifies installation and operation, lowering the total cost of ownership. The low powered, industrial, all-outdoor radios eliminate the need for indoor rack space and large battery banks. These benefits make private LTE the preferred solution for small mission critical networks in challenging environments.
