WTM6000 Installation, Operation & Maintenance

Microwave radio IP/MPLS networking (Instructor Led Training - ILT)


The Aviat WTM 6000 is the first All-IP trunking radio, capable of supporting up to 4 Gbit/s of aggregate data throughput. It is designed for exceptional compactness for N+1 protection configurations with up to 16 RF channels in a single sub-rack chassis. With the option to transport STM-1 in hybrid mixedmode, the WTM 6000 is a network operator’s first choice for high trunking capacity for regional and national backbone links in place of fiber.

The Aviat WTM 6000 Installation, Operation and Maintenance course teaches students key functions of the trunking radio platform. The course includes an overview of all available modules and the chassis, initial setup, install and login, basic configuration with the CLI, system commissioning, configuration, diagnostics, maintenance and troubleshooting. Extensive hands-on labs (nearly 50% of the course duration) and case studies offer students with scenarios they will face in real deployments in their networks.

Courses are conducted by AVIAT expert trainers in a mentoring environment backed by their deep technology expertise and experience in implementation of microwave wireless and IP networks. The WTM 6000 Installation, Operation and Maintenance course is conducted at Aviat Training locations or can be arranged at customer sites.
