The highest power digital microwave radio ever built.
When you can’t sacrifice reliability for high capacity, the Aviat IRU 600 delivers the ultimate in high performance, reliability, flexibility, and capacity for mission-critical applications. It’s a highly secure all-indoor radio, with market-leading system gain to enable smaller antennas and lower TCO.
Providing ultra-high capacity choices, innovative migration solutions, and optional extra high power, the IRU 600 provides a strong defense against technology obsolescence.
With its Extra-High Power (EHP) option, IRU 600 supports more transmitter power than alternative options, extending path distances, unlocking more capacity, enabling smaller, less costly antennas, and reducing tower-related costs. EHP also enables the 11 GHz to mitigate the effects of Wi-Fi 6E interference on the 6 GHz band, or can remove the need to deploy space diversity to support high link availability.
The IRU 600 enables multi-gigabit capacity links, including support for wide channels, 4096QAM modulation, XPIC, ACCP, and advanced Layer 1 Link Aggregation for multi-channel bonding. It also supports 6+11 GHz Multi-Band options, which result in link capacities that are 3x higher, or more, than previous product technologies.
IRU 600 is uniquely designed, built, and supported in the USA. Aviat-US includes our Corporate Headquarters, Research & Development, manufacturing (including single-rack to network-wide systems integration), and a comprehensive deployment services and after-sales support network.
Tough, durable, and dependable – and with its newest upgrade to the latest in RF technology –, IRU 600 is prepared for the future data demands of mission-critical networks.
The IRU 600 with Eclipse INUe is FIPS 197 and FIPS 140-2 Level 2 validated and is listed on the DoDIN APL — the only carrier grade microwave radio platform to offer both these security sets.
Tower-related costs are a major driver in network TCO. With IRU 600 EHP, network operators can reduce antenna sizes on existing links, upgrade capacity without increasing antenna sizes, eliminate the need for space diversity, or replace larger 6 GHz antennas with smaller ones in the 11 GHz band.
In one project for a state-wide government network, IRU 600 EHP enabled that agency to reduce antenna sizes on 97 links, remove space diversity on 12 links, and reduce the number of six, eight, and 10-ft diameter antennas by more than 36%, compared to the next alternative.
All-indoor radios provide easy access for maintenance and upgrades without the need to climb towers. This makes these radios ideal for deployment in harsh environments, such as for public safety and utility networks. And because all-indoor radios are more easily cooled, they can support exceptionally high power performance.
