Industrial Grade Connectivity for Fixed and Nomadic Wireless applications
A PtP and PtMP solution that is adaptable to everchanging environments
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
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
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 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 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.
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.
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.
