TMCnet Interviews Aviat Networks
Aviat Networks Supporting LTE Growth with Microwave Backhaul.
Stuart Little, Director of Product & Regional Marketing, discusses the growth of LTE, how microwave is the ideal backhaul technology to support and more.
LTE-Ready Wireless Backhaul
Aviat Networks is a leading provider of microwave transmission technology used to meet the backhaul infrastructure needs of today’s mobile networks.
Our leading edge solutions feature the Eclipse Packet Node, which is a transformational high-speed wireless transmission solution that provides the intelligence and efficiency to gradually migrate mobile backhaul networks toward next-generation 4G, while preserving investments in and protecting revenue streams from existing 2G/3G infrastructure.
The backhaul challenge
Discriminating network operators are actively investing in advanced 3G/HSPA mobile broadband services while simultaneously preparing for and/or deploying 4G/ LTE networks. Operators need to fend off aggressive competitors and keep up with subscribers’ escalating bandwidth demands, while offsetting declining traditional voice revenues.
Unfortunately, many mobile operators lack the ability to add more capacity to their network without the risk of disrupting existing services. They may also struggle with inconsistent network performance due to capacity limits, limited backhaul spectrum availability and the need to maintain high-quality legacy TDM voice services. At the same time, operators must also prepare their network for the introduction of new high-speed Ethernet/IP-based services in an environment of constrained CAPEX and downward pressure on OPEX.
Aviat - the Network Migration Experts
Aviat provides complete wireless solutions to minimize the risk and cost of migrating backhaul networks from today’s TDM technology to the all-IP infrastructure of the future. Aviat’s advanced mobile backhaul solutions provide flexible support for all forms of TDM, Hybrid, and All-IP backhaul, supporting high capacity, superior network resilience, advanced Ethernet networking and synchronization, and a host of other related features. We are able to provide a qualified team of local migration experts with a relentless focus on customer satisfaction to enable smooth IP transformation, while protecting existing investments.
We are a pioneer in providing backhaul solutions for mobile networks since the industry was in its infancy. Our experience and global reach enable us to bring the best of technology to help solve our customer’s problems. We are immersed in local culture and terrain, business and government practices, so we have an intimate understanding of customers’ infrastructure challenges. With Aviat, you will not get a “one size fits all” approach—we craft solutions to meet the unique needs of your business, your markets and your specific stage of network development or evolution.

Is the Backhaul Really the Bottleneck for LTE
The popularity of smart phones and tablets, motivated by the launch of the iPhone (2007) and the iPad (2010) have created a dramatic increase in mobile data consumption. The need to provide higher throughputs at the base station level to serve this demand has concerned operators, equipment vendors and industry watchers about a possible bottleneck in the backhaul network...
