The highest power digital microwave radio ever built!
Where failure is not an option, the Eclipse IRU 600 represents high performance, high reliability Mission Critical Microwave. The IRU 600 is the industry’s most secure radio and is now available with extra transmit power — +39 dBm or 5 times more than high power
Aviat has attained ISO/IEC 27001 security certification
This verifies that Aviat’s primary and backup Network Operation Centers (NOCs) have the infrastructure and processes to protect customer information and equipment assets with a high degree of security.
Our radios are designed, built and supported all within the USA. Aviat’s nationwide presence includes Corporate Headquarters and R&D center, manufacturing, and comprehensive in-country deployment services and after-sales support network.
The popularity of smartphones 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.
The basis for this concern is that microwave technology will not be able to provide enough capacity, and that only fiber is able to meet the capacity needs of 4G/LTE networks. This apprehension is being capitalized on by some optical network providers who argue that fiber connections are needed to provide gigabit levels at each base station. Although a gigabit connection in each base station is desirable, extremely high costs, slow deployment and inflexibility of fiber optic networks prevent this from being a viable option for operators who are CAPEX and OPEX constrained.
Aviat Networks’ studies, based upon our early involvement in some of the largest LTE network deployments, show that an average of 100 to 200 Mbps of backhaul capacity per LTE cell site is more than adequate and easily achievable with current microwave technologies.
