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.

In today’s increasingly connected world, speed is king. Companies that can react, adapt, plan, and execute quickly maximize the opportunities presented by change. However, speed in procurement is difficult to gain without a strong, reliable partner who recognizes the value of time and efficient order processing. A perfect example of this is with the partnership between ISPs and Aviat, quickly and efficiently meeting the growing needs of high-speed broadband in rural and underserved areas across the globe using the Aviat Store, a fast and efficient platform to buy microwave radios, antennas, licenses, and accessories online — completely self-serve.
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:
Are you considering deploying microwave links in your network? Instead of deploying 15, 18 or 23 GHz why not try WTM 4800 Multi-Band with 80/xxGHz. You can replace your microwave links with Multi-Band which combines E-Band and traditional microwave (15/18/23GHz) on a single link over a single antenna to drastically improve capacity that can be typically achieved by microwave alone.

Have you heard the buzz about Multi-Band? Multi-Band combines traditional microwave channel alongside an E-Band (80 GHz) channel, joining the capacity of the latter with the high availability of the former. Multi-Band makes E-Band carrier-class over longer distances, making it a much more viable and deployable solution for 5G backhaul.
Aviat Design, Aviat’s cloud-based link planning application, supports WTM 4800 E-Band and Multi-band designs. Aviat Design is the industry’s first and only integrated Multi-band link design solution showing a combined view of availability and capacity for the link. This enables easy, fast, intuitive E-Band and Multi-Band designs (all specs included, no pathloss files to download or update, easy cloud access). Popular design tools will require 2 separate link calculations for Multi-Band, and will not result in a combined design for the link, making it virtually impossible to understand the expected link performance or capacity or estimate the proper antenna size. Aviat Design is FREE for use at www.aviatcloud.com.
