Part 2: Applications and Requirements for ARPA-funded Public Safety Network Upgrades

Today, Public Safety networks need to support a growing range of customers, applications, and services. Along with the increasing amount of mission-critical traffic to support public health and emergency responses, most agencies are also supporting traffic involving other agencies, consolidating inter-, intra-, and adjacent agency traffic over a common infrastructure.

The Aviat Disaster Recovery Plan: How to be Ready When Adversity Strikes Your Network

Natural or man-made disasters don’t provide advance warnings and when they occur, they can immediately and significantly impact networks. Fallen trees, bridge outages, and construction catastrophes can cut fiber. High winds can destroy microwave antennas and RF units. Floods can topple overhead lines and wreck equipment depots. Fires can destroy equipment sheds. Terrorist attacks and acts of vandalism can bring down a network in seconds.

Part 1: Putting ARPA Funds to Work in Next Generation Public Safety Networks

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021 allocates $350 billion to help states, counties, cities, and tribal governments improve their capabilities, infrastructure, and services to better respond to and manage the pandemic. This represents a unique opportunity not only to improve strained backhaul networks for public safety agencies but also to support the advent of 5G and a raft of new public safety applications.

Part 1: There’s only one viable solution for 5G backhaul

It’s pretty simple – network operators need to build more capacity to support active or future planned deployments of 5G. Even operators who don’t see 5G on the horizon yet are facing new capacity demands, whether they have 4G/LTE networks or are delivering rural broadband services using fixed wireless access.

Stretching 11 GHz Links for Higher Capacity without Compromises

In this highly digitized broadband world, the demand for network capacity is always rising. Wireless internet service providers and mobile operators are all finding their customers demanding more bandwidth. Even utilities and local governments use more network bandwidth as they deploy surveillance cameras and other high-demand applications. Long-haul microwave links play a key role in delivering network capacity, and 6 GHz and 11 GHz frequencies are popular choices.

Accelerating Network Turn-up Time

In today’s increasingly connected world, speed is king. Companies that can react, adapt, plan, and execute quickly maximize the opportunities presented by change. However, speed in procurement is difficult to gain without a strong, reliable partner who recognizes the value of time and efficient order processing. A perfect example of this is with the partnership between ISPs and Aviat, quickly and efficiently meeting the growing needs of high-speed broadband in rural and underserved areas across the globe using the Aviat Store, a fast and efficient platform to buy microwave radios, antennas, licenses, and accessories online — completely self-serve.
