The National Science Foundation (NSF) has operated the United States Antarctic Program (USAP) since its inception in the 1950s. Program scientists perform a variety of critical research projects there that rely heavily on communications with the outside world—for transmission of research data for analysis, for contact with other researchers in the U.S. and other regions of the world, for personal communications between the Antarctica staff and their families and others, and for many other purposes.

Chugach Electric’s network migration began in 2010, when they first identified upcoming issues with their existing network, which consisted of end-of-life hardware and capacity bottlenecks. The migration was critical to ensure traffic across operations that covered an expansive footprint remained flowing and without any issues and to be also to evolve the network to enable allow future technologies, services, and applications.

It’s 2:30 AM Saturday morning and the phone rings dragging you out of a deep sleep. Groggily you answer the phone and a voice at the end of the line is alerting you that the communication system is in alarm and traffic is down. While trying to figure out what’s going on, you remember you are the person responsible for your company’s communication infrastructure.

There’s no one-size-fits-all in microwave. Each radio architecture comes with tradeoffs, so you need to weigh the choices in each segment of the network to get the right product mix for your business. To determine your best solution, first establish your requirements from a capacity, reliability, operational, and cost perspective. Then choose the right product. Microwave’s major technologies include the following.

Do you remember the last time your blood pressure was checked? I remember staring at the results wondering what the numbers meant. Usually my thoughts are, “Great, does this mean I’m healthy or should I be concerned?”
Recently, one of our customers had a similar experience with an email received from our customer service group. The customer’s initial impression was that the content received was vague and meaningless. “What am I supposed to do with this information?”, the customer asked.

This large western US state had a longtime relationship with a microwave radio vendor and would have continued buying from them if their radios and support evolved with the State’s needs. However, over time its needs changed and it had to have more capabilities from its communications network. But it did not want to unnecessarily build new sites and erect costly new towers.

In Australia, the federal government has had an ambitious plan to connect all citizens to a national broadband network (NBN). However, in some of the more remote parts of the country, of which there are more than a few, the incumbent provider, Telstra, cannot deliver that subscriber experience. This leaves it to alternative access providers to fill the gap.
One of these providers, Aviat partner MIMP Connecting Solutions, decided to use Aviat Networks microwave solutions to reach remote customers beyond the NBN fiber footprint. This is important as many vulnerable subscribers need to be connected to doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals for help. Literally, this can be a matter of life or death.

When designing microwave networks, backhaul engineers have a wide variety of techniques at their disposal. One method that remains highly effective is Space Diversity (SD). With SD, two antennas separated by some distance can increase the availability of a link from something less than 99.999 percent to in excess of five-nines uptime. However, the introduction of a second parabolic antenna on a microwave path poses a substantial increase in the capital expenditure (capex) budget.
