The next generation of split-mount and all-outdoor trunking applications

For over 30 years, Aviat has been a leader in long haul microwave solutions, initially using all-indoor multi-channel trunking radios. However, in the last decade, Aviat has led a transformation of the long-haul market by pioneering a new split-mount trunking solution — the STR 4500.

INTRODUCING STR 4500

The Wireless Alternative to Long Haul Fiber

STR 4500

Operators no longer need to deploy extensive and expensive site infrastructure – such as shelters, air-conditioning, elliptical waveguide runs, and dehydration systems – to support all-indoor trunk radios. The STR 4500 eliminates all of these requirements, dramatically lowering TCO.

Next-Gen Long-Haul Solutions

STR 4500 represents the next generation of long-haul microwave applications. Up to four WTM 4500s can be combined onto a single antenna port using an Outdoor Branching Unit (OBU), supporting up to 8 Gbps of link capacity with integrated space diversity. This gives network operators a viable choice over fiber for long haul backbone paths, and delivers the lowest possible CAPEX and OPEX.

Characteristics

Main Benefits

Dual Transceiver + Integrated Space Diversity

A long distance solution

STR 4500 incorporates the very latest in Aviat long-haul innovations, such as dual-transceiver designs with integrated Space Diversity (DC-SD), to support up to 10 Gbps of capacity over link distances more than 100 km, even over water.

Compelling Benefits

Impressive value-add

STR 4500 offers compelling advantages over traditional all-indoor solutions, and operators around the world are recognizing the value of split-mount trunking to dramatically reduce costs for long haul microwave:

  • Up to 65% lower TCO
  • 230% more capacity
  • Minimal indoor footprint, up to 50% less power consumption
  • No shelter or air-conditioning
  • Higher System Gain for reduced tower loading
  • No waveguide or dehydrators
  • Easier to ship, faster to deploy and commission

This long-haul microwave solution from Aviat offers operators a viable option to deploying costly fiber infrastructure, while also dramatically lowering overall costs.

Q&A

Why Split-Mount Microwave Trunking?

For years, traditional trunking microwave systems were installed all-indoors, requiring shelters and costly air conditioning. Split-Mount microwave trunking moves the microwave radio from the shelter to the tower and mounted next to the antenna, reducing deployment and operational costs. Smaller shelters or cabinets can be used, eliminating costly and unreliable pressurization/dehydration systems, and lowering air-conditioning needs.
