Our Markets

LTE Proven Mobile Backhaul

Mobile service providers have a new sense of urgency to invest in their backhaul network to avoid the capacity crunch being driven by the explosion in bandwidth demand as a result of the introduction of new smart devices and the evolution of networks to LTE. At the same time these operators must address the so-called "Revenue Gap" – the widening divergence between increasing network operational costs and flat subscriber revenue.

Aviat has been supplying microwave backhaul solutions for mobile networks for more than 20 years, and into 300 mobile networks around the world. Our LTE-proven microwave backhaul solutions provide the most comprehensive IP transport features of any other wireless backhaul solution in its class, giving operators the peace of mind that the solution that they deploy today will provide a smooth migration path to all-IP networks needed tomorrow, extending life of their existing infrastructure and without having to make a risky early leap to all-IP.

Public Safety and Government Agencies

Government agencies, public safety and first responders all have very similar operational requirements for their networks - highest equipment reliability and uncompromising security for mission critical communication services. With budget tightening more commonly seen now at many levels of government operations, government agencies are demanding innovative solutions that can also achieve lower total cost of ownership.

Aviat Networks is the leading and most trusted provider of wireless solutions for the transport of high-speed Ethernet data, video and voice services to meet the stringent demands for public safety and first responders, border security, defense agencies and local/city government agencies.

Smart Utility Networks

The imminent modernization of the utility grid represents a great opportunity for advancement and change. The telecom network underpins the promise of a Smart Grid to ultimately change the way energy is consumed and delivered including initiatives such as smart meters, substation automation and distribution automation.

Aviat’s wireless solutions build on existing deployed infrastructure for seamless migration, high interoperability and a single management view of entire networks. Wireless is the ideal solution for smart grid deployments due to its lower cost compared to fiber, ease of deployment and proven reliability. Aviat offers a suite of wireless product solutions that includes wireless backhaul, IP/MPLS networking, network management, Network Operations Center (NOC) Services, and turnkey Services.

Proven Experience in Private Networks

Aviat has a long proven record of supplying microwave communications solutions and services into a wide variety of other private network applications, such as infrastructure for broadcast networks, oil and gas installations (on and off-shore), campus and enterprise networks, low latency solutions for high speed trading networks, and railways/transportation.

Our Products and Solutions

Aviat's portfolio of microwave networking products covers an extensive spectrum of frequencies, capacities and applications. This advanced line of microwave backhaul products is optimized for last mile and aggregation sites, and high capacity trunking radios for the core network.

Our products are designed to support smooth migration from TDM to Carrier Ethernet/IP, utilizing either a hybrid design that supports full native support for legacy and new IP traffic with maximum efficiency, or all-IP for operators seeking to deploy all-packet links. Aviat has a powerful product roadmap that drives further integration of microwave and Layer 2/3 and IP/MPLS networking, along with market leading radio performance, efficiency and reliability.

The Aviat Advantage

Our global reach and strong portfolio accelerates time to market and ensures a scalable, high-performance network. Unlike monolithic telecommunications vendors who subscribe to a “one size fits all” approach to serving operators, large and small, which results in vendor lock-in, Aviat is known for its highly individualized experience that nets better results.

In an environment of uncertainty and unrelenting competitive pressures, Aviat has the experience and agility to anticipate what’s coming to help our customers make the right choices so that their investments today aren’t left stranded tomorrow. Because we’re thinking ahead, our products and services are designed for flexible evolution, so no matter what the future brings operators will have all options that they need to move forward and thrive.

And with local presence on the ground worldwide, our microwave experts understand specific local requirements and customs. We work by the side of our customers with personal attention and collaboration to understand and meet the unique challenges of their business and markets.
