In March 2020, Ireland was preparing for lockdown, placing additional strain on rural networks. Enter BBnet, an ISP operating in Ireland; Irish Wireless, equipment distributor; and Aviat Networks. The three companies teamed together to design and plan a new link that delivered rural broadband services to parts of County Limerick in a few weeks.

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.

Most radio buying processes haven’t changed for years. Some orders are still placed by picking up the phone, emailing a request, waiting for a response, and then juggling multiple POs. It’s such a long process to manage from start to finish. Aviat Store solves all those issues and more.
Whether you need to buy one microwave link, one hundred or who knows – one thousand!? You want the ordering process to go as smoothly as possible, and you want a one-stop-shop where you can purchase your radios, antennas, licenses and accessories. When selecting your microwave online store you’ll want to look for specific features including:
Aviat Networks recently partnered with Cruzio Internet of Santa Cruz to help families in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. Low-income families have been among the hardest hit, and with the increase in internet access demands, the need for fast, reliable internet for all is imperative.
Don’t Get Burned with Half-Duplex Capacity Claims around FDD vs. TDD
It is finally time to uncover the mystery between FDD vs. TDD, specifically the importance of FDD as a key element in network performance.
FDD stands for Frequency Division Duplex, and TDD stands for Time Division Duplex. Both FDD and TDD are two spectrum usage techniques, both forms of duplex, used in mobile or fixed wireless broadband links. It is essential to these links that transmission can occur in both directions simultaneously so that data can flow downlink (DL) and uplink (UL) at the same time without any noticeable interruptions.

Most operators of WISP backhaul networks have had difficult experiences with Power over Ethernet (PoE) cabling solutions, affecting both the economics and operations of their networks. Today, Aviat Networks is recommending, with increasing frequency, a dual cable system: fiber to carry data at high speeds, and copper to carry DC power only. This solution offers significant advantages over CAT5 cabling, which carries both data and DC power over a single Ethernet cable.
For new entrants and smaller WISPs, cost is often the major factor in infrastructure procurement. However, many WISPs who used to be in those categories are today enjoying significant growth, prompting them to rethink infrastructure investments as part of their overall business plan.
