Eclipse & CTR 8300

Eclipse and CTR 8300 switches provide highly resilient configurations with redundant hardware and path protection, and strong security against unauthorized physical or electronic access or eavesdropping.

Ultra-reliable, strong security, hybrid support

Legacy Systems Transition

Many applications, such as those used by public safety and utility networks, still require traditional DS1/E1, DS3 and OC3/STM1 traffic interfaces to support legacy systems, and provide a means to transition services to high-speed Ethernet. Eclipse and CTR 8300 meet these requirements. They provide highly resilient configurations with redundant hardware and path protection, and strong security against unauthorized physical or electronic access or eavesdropping. These requirements often go hand-in-hand with the need for highly resilient configurations with redundant hardware and path protection, and strong security against unauthorized physical or electronic access or eavesdropping.

CHARACTERISTICS

Main Benefits

Eclipse Hybrid Microwave Indoor Units

Multiple deployment options

Compact, simple to deploy


The Eclipse platform is available as a 1RU or 2RU Intelligent Node Unit (INU or INUe), which supports high nodal density in a compact form factor, enabling aggregation nodes that support high-capacity packet handling capacity.

Eclipse is easily deployed in a traditional split-mount configuration with the Aviat ODU600, or all-indoor using the Aviat IRU600 (North America only).

Network deployment options include terminal, nodal, ring (with protection for T1/loop and Ethernet/ERP), and edge/spur sites.

Trusted reliability

Strong data protection

The Eclipse INU is a highly modular and scalable indoor unit with proven reliability, and multiple protection options at the radio, modem, switch and line interface levels to ensure that your critical data will always be maintained, irrespective of failure scenario.

Hybrid architecture

Seamless growth and flexibility

Eclipse enables network migration through comprehensive Hybrid TDM+IP architecture, with full native support for legacy TDM (DS1/DS3 and OC3) and new Ethernet/IP traffic, without encapsulation or emulation, for maximum efficiency and lowest latency.

Advanced Carrier Ethernet/IP intelligence

Smart about traffic

Eclipse incorporates a carrier-grade Ethernet switch that provides traffic classification, QoS traffic priority assignment, VLAN support, and Ethernet optimization for improved throughput, all seamlessly supporting flexible network growth from hybrid TDM to all-IP networking.

Bullet-Proof Security

Government certified

Eclipse is the most secure microwave platform in the market today. Start protecting your wireless network against today’s threats with RADIUS Secure Authentication, Secure management (SNMP v3, secure access and control), and AES 256 Payload encryption.

Eclipse is FIPS 197 and FIPS 140-2 Level 2 validated and is listed on the DoDIN APL (USA) — the only carrier grade microwave radio platform to offer both these security sets.

CTR 8300 Indoor Units

Ultra-compact Design for Maximum Deployment Options

Small but powerful


The Aviat CTR 8300 is an ultra–compact microwave switch that can pack up to 1 Gbit/s of data throughput in a single radio channel. It is ideal where space is a premium, but high capacity and advanced networking features are still necessary. CTR 8300 delivers multiple deployment options because its passive-cooling packaging works in both rack and non-rack installations, such as in rooftop enclosures and street-side cabinets.

Advanced Microwave Features

Proven capabilities

CTR 8300 supports modulations up to 1024QAM with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM), co-channel operation with XPIC, and dual-ODU support. It offers advanced networking options and flexibility to address the needs of evolving services by combining the latest in Carrier Ethernet switching, TDM support via Ethernet Pseudowires, Ethernet OAM, and packet-based synchronization, along with software programmable capacity scalability.

Q&A

Why Microwave Switching?

These indoor units support high capacity, carrier Ethernet/IP networking, and convergence features. Their structure makes it easy to support multiple radio directions, migrate from legacy TDM to IP, and capitalize on frequency efficiency and use, progressive carrier Ethernet/IP intelligence, and necessary network convergence abilities.
