Do you have…

High microwave spectrum costs, available e-band spectrum, and links shorter than 10 km?

If you answered “Yes” – switching to multi-band could save you up to $10K per link over 3 years.

The numbers don’t lie, see for yourself

Did you know

Microwave spectrum cost is one of the largest TCO elements in many countries around the world, and as capacity demands grow, more spectrum is required.

By combining a microwave and millimeter wave solution in the same product, like with Multi-Band, customers can achieve significant savings on spectrum costs. Traffic can be offloaded from costly microwave spectrum onto a less expensive millimeter wave band while still maintaining the trusted reliability of microwave. In this case, compared with a microwave only solution where all 2 Gbps must be carried over expensive microwave spectrum, a lower TCO solution can be achieved using E-band and only taking 0.5 Gbps on costly microwave spectrum. E-band spectrum is 10x cheaper in many places.

Operators should not be deploying any microwave links <10 KM, and these should all move to Multi-Band.

Let’s take a quick look

Here are some countries where the millimeter wave spectrum cost is a drastically lower than that of the microwave spectrum. For example – as show below, the millemeter wave spectrum cost in South Africa is not even half a percent of the microwave cost.

Achieve seamless switchover with single-box multi-band vs. multi-box multi-band White paper: Achieve seamless switchover with single-box multi-band vs. multi-box multi-band
Some multi-box Multi-Band solutions currently available on the market fail to provide a seamless switchover between the traditional microwave and E-band frequencies when the E-band portion becomes unavailable—leading to reduced capacity and the need for manual intervention to correct the link’s performance. This paper intends to demonstrate how Aviat’s Multi-Band solution overcomes these limitations to support hitless traffic aggregation and restoration.

TWS successfully trials Aviat WTM 4800 multi-band solution during mid-winter Case study: TWS successfully trials Aviat WTM 4800 multi-band solution during mid-winter
In December 2019, TWS installed an Aviat WTM 4800 Multi-Band test link from their office in Twello, making a connection of over 6 kilometers to Deventer, in the Netherlands. The link capacity was designed to support 10 Gbps over an 80 GHz primary connection in parallel with an 18 GHz backup connection. Thanks to Aviat’s multi-band solution, which incorporates both radios inside a single outdoor unit (two frequencies in one unit), the cost of the equipment and installation are very economical.

Aviat Networks is pleased to announce that its new WTM 4815 multi-band backhaul solution has passed its first real world deployment with flying colors. The unit sailed through a battery of benchmarks under challenging weather conditions in a tropical climate. The link used the WTM 4815’s 80 GHz (E-Band) and 15 GHz (millimeter band) frequencies to deliver the best of both worlds over the link—a leap forward in capacity and throughput on one hand and enhanced link stability on the other.

High Capacity + Availability: Multi-Band is the right solution for 5G backhaul White paper: High Capacity + Availability: Multi-Band is the right solution for 5G backhaul
Why? Microwave bands are limited in capacity, particularly in countries and bands where spectrum is limited due to congestion. Even if you can get additional frequencies, scaling capacity means aggregating multiple channels that results in high equipment costs and potentially expensive recurring spectrum fees. E-Band alone is not sufficient either. With more bandwidth available that enables higher capacities, E-Band suffers from a number of potential limitations, from short link distances and high susceptibility to rain outage and pole/tower sway to difficult and time-consuming installation/antenna alignment.

WTM 4800 Multi-Band Infographic Infographic: WTM 4800 Multi-Band Infographic
Multi-Band involves combining E-Band (70-80GHz) with traditional microwave (6-42GHz) on a single microwave link, usually with a single antenna on each end. Multi-Band drastically improves availability and distance of E-Band links and addresses other issues like pole sway and antenna alignment. If you are thinking of E-Band or microwave, consider Multi-Band, in particular single-box Multi-Band. Check out our infographic to find out how single-box Multi-Band means high value at a cost that makes sense.
