WTM 3200 Installation, Operation and Maintenance

Microwave radio IP/MPLS networking


The Aviat WTM 3200 is an advanced all outdoor packet radio featuring an advanced Carrier Ethernet switch and highly scalable microwave transport platform. Equipped with QPSK to 1024 QAM modulation in frequency bands from 6 to 42 GHz, the WTM 3200 supports throughput rates up 1 Gbit/s. Low power consumption (<35 Watts) and simplified cabling ensures the WTM 3200 maximizes installation, operations and maintenance efficiency at small sites.

The WTM 3200 Installation, Operation and Maintenance course teaches students key functions of the WTM 3200 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.
