The next generation of split-mount and all-outdoor trunking applications
The Wireless Alternative to Long Haul Fiber
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.
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.
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.
