As we have talked about in previous posts, Multi-Band is a great way to improve the reliability and reach of E-Band, or to increase the capacity of licensed microwave bands, by combining both into a single, easy-to-deploy solution. More recently, we have seen Multi-Band solutions that utilize unlicensed 5 GHz band radios in place of licensed bands like 15, 18, or 23 GHz, but does this actually make sense?Read More
Multi-Band backhaul links consist of running multiple channels at different frequency bands, typically 70/80 GHz + 6-23 GHz on a single link, to improve capacity and reliability. These links essentially operate as an extended ACM solution – giving more reliability than E-Band and more capacity than the lower frequency channels operating independently.Read More
While public safety networks have much in common, each agency experiences a unique set of challenges in two areas: financing periodic system-wide upgrades and keeping their networks running optimally over the life of the network. One challenge they all share is securing big-dollar funding to avoid obsolescence while continuing to provide advanced services to their operational and emergency agencies.Read More
Are you considering deploying microwave links in your network? Instead of deploying 15, 18 or 23 GHz why not try WTM 4800 Multi-Band with 80/xxGHz. You can replace your microwave links with Multi-Band which combines E-Band and traditional microwave (15/18/23GHz) on a single link over a single antenna to drastically improve capacity that can be typically achieved by microwave alone.Read More
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.Read More
Randy Jenkins, Aviat Networks’ Director of Business Development for North America, attended the “5G Transport & the Edge” meeting of technology leaders in New York on October 10. He sat on the microwave transport in the 5G environment panel, titled “Redefining the Access Network: Examining RAN Architecture & the Implications for 5G Transport.”Read More

Have you heard the buzz about Multi-Band? Multi-Band combines traditional microwave channel alongside an E-Band (80 GHz) channel, joining the capacity of the latter with the high availability of the former. Multi-Band makes E-Band carrier-class over longer distances, making it a much more viable and deployable solution for 5G backhaul.Read More
Both Eclipse and the IRU 600 offer market-leading solutions to network operators who need robust, flexible features such as extra high power (EHP), hybrid transport of TDM and IP traffic, superior system gain, and the latest security technologies.
In both products, the enhancements consist of new firmware added to existing modules. The firmware is a highly efficient way to enable true native transport of both TDM and IP traffic. It’s like having two radios (from two different technology eras) moving traffic seamlessly across the same network expanse—without the cost of two radio systems and with easy, cost-effective new ways to migrate your network to current transport technologies over time.Read More
Don’t Get Burned with Half-Duplex Capacity Claims
It is finally time to uncover the mystery between FDD and TDD, specifically the importance of FDD as a key element in network performance.
FDD stands for Frequency Division Duplex, and TDD stands for Time Division Duplex. Both FDD and TDD are two spectrum usage techniques, both forms of duplex, used in mobile or fixed wireless broadband links. It is essential to these links that transmission can occur in both directions simultaneously so that data can flow downlink (DL) and uplink (UL) at the same time without any noticeable interruptions.Read More
