Industry Reports: On the Radar: Aviat Networks WTM 4800
Ovum's "On the Radar" series highlights up-and-coming companies bringing potentially disruptive ideas, products, or business models to their markets. In this report, Don Frey, Principal Analyst of Transport and Routing with OVUM, shares his insights on our WTM 4800 Multi-Band solution.
Case study: Multi-Band in the Real World – Case Study of Aviat’s Single Box Multi-Band Link
Aviat Networks is pleased to announce that its new WTM 4815 multi-band backhaul solution has passed its first real world deployment with flying colors. The unit sailed through a battery of benchmarks under challenging weather conditions in a tropical climate. The link used the WTM 4815’s 80 GHz (E-Band) and 15 GHz (millimeter band) frequencies to deliver the best of both worlds over the link—a leap forward in capacity and throughput on one hand and enhanced link stability on the other.
White paper: High Capacity + Availability: Multi-Band is the right solution for 5G backhaul
Why? Microwave bands are limited in capacity, particularly in countries and bands where spectrum is limited due to congestion. Even if you can get additional frequencies, scaling capacity means aggregating multiple channels that results in high equipment costs and potentially expensive recurring spectrum fees. E-Band alone is not sufficient either. With more bandwidth available that enables higher capacities, E-Band suffers from a number of potential limitations, from short link distances and high susceptibility to rain outage and pole/tower sway to difficult and time-consuming installation/antenna alignment.

Multi-Band involves combining E-Band (70-80GHz) with traditional microwave (6-42GHz) on a single microwave link, usually with a single antenna on each end. Multi-Band drastically improves availability and distance of E-Band links and addresses other issues like pole sway and antenna alignment. If you are thinking of E-Band or microwave, consider Multi-Band, in particular single-box Multi-Band. Check out our infographic to find out how single-box Multi-Band means high value at a cost that makes sense.
Data sheet: WTM 4800 E-Band and Multi-Band Radio Platform
WTM 4800 is a unique new radio platform for E-Band and Multi-Band 5G transport applications. WTM 4800 Multi-Band is the industry’s first and only single box Multi-Band solution which significantly lowers total cost of ownership (TCO) compared to alternative Multi-Band solutions that rely on two, three and even four separate boxes.
