When There is No Option for Network Downtime

Backhaul network unavailability is not an option for mission-critical networks.

Downtime can lead to severe consequences – loss of productivity, loss of revenue, even loss of life.

Until now, network operators have had to overbuy High Availability routers to eliminate single points of failure and minimize the threat of service disruption.

Aviat has taken a different approach: our CTR 8740 transport router provides High Availability at fiber and wireless sites at an affordable price and with lowest TCO.

Cutting the cost of routing

The cost of routing has been too high for too long. With a stranglehold on the market, traditional router vendors have demanded premiums for their products and with SDN technology being a few years from being able to disrupt the transport routing cost equation, something new is needed.

With its state-of-the-art hardware and off the shelf and open source software, CTR 8740 delivers significantly lower cost than standard routers. Plus CTR 8740 is purpose-built for transport networks, so you’re not paying for features you don’t need.

With its robust IP/MPLS feature set, CTR 8740 enables a single low-cost transport routing solution for both fiber and wireless connected sites.

Through the integration of modem technology, CTR 8740 removes the need for an extra box thus further lowering CAPEX and OPEX costs for microwave and millimeter wave deployments.
