INFOGRAPHIC: Microwave is an ideal solution for Private LTE backhaul transport

The evolution of applications, services and demands on private broadband networks are creating new requirements for coverage and agility. The backhaul network has to be smarter, simpler and more cost effective to be able to handle the challenge of connecting any device, anywhere. Microwave offers reliability and security, data speeds that make new capabilities possible. Plus, Aviat’s Private LTE backhaul offers much lower CAPEX and OPEX compared to other solutions, such as fiber or leased lines. There are several key considerations to keep in mind when you develop your private LTE network. Find more information, download our infographic Continue reading

Revolutionizing 5G Mission Critical Transport Networks (Part 2)

Part 1 of our “Revolutionizing 5G Mission Critical Transport Networks” blog post series addressed microwave versus fiber as the better solution for mission critical 5G. We now continue our exploration focusing on mission critical use cases. Many critical applications, such as connected/autonomous cars, industrial Internet of Things (IoT), M2M, and public safety applications, require consistent reliability from their mobile networks. Under threat of multi-day outages from disasters and other types of network downtime and service outages, mobile networks must ensure the reliability and resiliency needed for 5G operation and its critical missions.

Recap of UK WISPA 2020: Delivering Superfast Broadband to Rural Communities in the UK

Author: Stuart Little, Director, International Product Line Marketing

On the 16th of January this year, Aviat attended our first UK Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (UKWISPA) Members Meeting in London. Aviat recently joined the organization as a Gold Technology Partner. The meeting was held in London and attended by more than 100 delegates from all over the UK and abroad. UKWISPA is the official trade body recognized by UK authorities and seeks to promote the interests of the industry and ensure that services provided by members are of the highest standards possible. “There is a fiber political focus on full-fiber at this time, and this will result in many areas of the UK feeling left behind, as fiber overbuild will target premises with FTTC, creating a ‘gigabit or nothing’ scenario,” stated David Burns, Chairman of UKWISPA. “We will be lobbying for a voucher scheme that provides 100 or 200 Mbps connectivity into the properties that will be left behind by the next wave of fiber deployment.” Continue reading

FWCC Webinar Recap: Potential problems permitting unlicensed RLAN operations in the 6 GHz band

As many readers are aware, the FCC issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) regarding RLAN operation within the 6 GHz bands. Over the last two and a half years, the FWCC has dedicated itself to protecting fixed links from t in these bands. Understandably so, this is especially important given the diversity of fixed link users in the 6 GHz bands; among others, utility companies, oil and gas companies, and local government agencies, including those dealing with public safety, have large numbers of 6 GHz links that perform unique and crucial tasks. There are approximately 97,000 fixed links in the 6 GHz bands. Continue reading

Private LTE for Utilities: Key requirements for your Private LTE transport network

The evolution of applications, services and demands on private broadband networks are creating new requirements for coverage and agility, which will require a new breed of transport for backhaul. The backhaul network must be smarter, simpler and more cost effective to be able to handle the challenge of connecting any device, anywhere. Continue reading
