Utah Broadband is a local company that has been providing excellent broadband services to communities and businesses in Salt Lake, Davis, Tooele, Weber, Summit, and Wasatch counties in Utah for almost 20 years. With innovative technology, the company provides data links up to 10 GB.
Utah Broadband is revolutionizing the way people access the internet in rural and suburban areas by rolling out Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) technology. The company aims to offer high-speed and advanced internet services to its customers.
However, delivering such services requires reliable high-speed connectivity and redundancy. This is where Utah Broadband faced a challenge.
To overcome this challenge, Utah Broadband turned to Aviat Networks and its WTM 4800 Multi-Band Radio solution. Aviat’s Multi-Band Radio is a single box solution that delivers 10 Gbps on the network backbone, combining high capacity and high reliability allowing Utah Broadband to deliver up to 1 Gbps service per subscriber. With the multi-band technology, Utah Broadband can reach new tower locations that were previously unattainable and reduce the total number of sites required.
The Multi-Band Radio solution also provides Utah Broadband with greater flexibility in choosing new tower locations, as it combines millimeter wave and microwave frequencies in the same radio unit. Mike Simmons, Vice President of Wireless Engineering at Utah Broadband, has stated that the microwave portion of the solution delivers “very high reliability in all weather conditions.”
In addition to the Multi-Band Radio solution, Utah Broadband also uses AviatCloud’s services, such as the Aviat Design link planning tool and the Aviat Store for ordering additional radios. The ordering process is easy, and the company can have a radio shipped within a business day if it is in stock.

Is traditional microwave dead? With the advent of Multi-Band, it could be. Why accept an old solution when you can have so much more by combining E-Band and traditional microwave into a single-box unit. Governments are taking action across the world to connect homes and businesses in rural areas to the rest of the world. From the 7-year action plan devised by National Broadband Ireland (NBI) to the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) $9.2 billion newly implemented Rural Digital Opportunity Fund, there is a worldwide focus on the connectedness of rural areas. As capacity demands increase rapidly for rural broadband networks, a better solution than traditional microwave is needed.
