Aviat selected as one of the “best-positioned suppliers” for OpenSoftHaul (OSH) global RFI

When it comes to delivering the best in wireless backhaul solutions, Aviat sets the bar high, and now we have been selected as one of the “best-positioned suppliers” for the OpenSoftHaul (OSH) global RFI sponsored by Telecom Infra Project’s Wireless Backhaul Project Group (WBH PG).

The RFI selected industry-leading hardware and software technology providers to share information on their current technical capabilities and product features to measure compliance and present their plans to build solutions that meet OSH technical requirements. Judging criteria included solution architecture, openness, functionality, scalability, availability, and solution roadmap.

The WBH PG, founded by telecom leaders Axiata, Deutsche Telekom, MTN, Telefónica, and TIM Brasil, is focused on creating the first-in-the-world open and disaggregated wireless backhaul solution designed to speed time to market, simplify deployment, and lower costs.

We answered the OSH RFI by presenting our WTM 4800 multi-band all-outdoor radio, our single-box solution for multi-band that combines the benefits of high capacity and high availability and ensures seamless continuous operation if any one band is not available.

The selected suppliers will now be required to share data regarding the capabilities of their software/hardware in response to the extensive technical specifications document created by the WBH PG for the ideal OpenSoftHaul (OSH) solution. The WBH PG is moving at an accelerated pace to test the suppliers’ solutions and have a deployable solution by 2021.

The evolution of OSH came about from the lack of fiber affordability and the need to quickly and efficiently deploy connectivity to rural and remote areas. As Caroline Gabriel, Principal Analyst at Analysys Mason describes it, “An open, disaggregated architecture in which large numbers of suppliers can innovate around common, operator-defined specifications will be essential to bring creative solutions to market quickly, with a profound impact on operators’ power and site efficiency, and their TCO.”
