Achieve seamless switchover with single-box multi-band vs. multi-box multi-band
Some multi-box Multi-Band solutions currently available on the market fail to provide a seamless switchover between the traditional microwave and E-band frequencies when the E-band portion becomes unavailable—leading to reduced capacity and the need for manual intervention to correct the link’s performance.
In a multi-box Multi-Band solution, traffic streams from two or more different radios to be combined into a single aggregated payload. Those same radios need to be able to switch between the traffic streams should any of the paths be impacted.
Most Multi-Band solutions require an indoor unit to support traffic aggregation using a link bonding technique, but often this mechanism does not work seamlessly. After a weather-induced outage on the E-band channel, the traffic stream does not restore once the E-band links are back in service. As a result, the Multi-Band link will not resume operating at full capacity until there is manual intervention to reset the link.
Aviat’s WTM 4800 single-box multi-band solution not only provides the lowest overall TCO option but is also field-proven to deliver the highest level of performance. The hitless failover capability between the millimeter and microwave channels ensures an uninterrupted, highest capacity wireless solution, crucial for your high-capacity transport needs.
