How to protect mission critical communication links from Wi-Fi 6E interference

Point-to-point microwaves links are the de facto standard for connecting infrastructure over vast distances quickly and cost-effectively. Lower frequencies, like 6 GHz, allows a network to span long distances with high capacity while maintaining robust availability, especially during rain fade. These characteristics have led to rapid, widespread adoption with more than 40000 links in the 6 GHz frequency band deployed across the US.

INFOGRAPHIC: Microwave is an ideal solution for Private LTE backhaul transport

The evolution of applications, services and demands on private broadband networks are creating new requirements for coverage and agility. The backhaul network has to be smarter, simpler and more cost effective to be able to handle the challenge of connecting any device, anywhere. Microwave offers reliability and security, data speeds that make new capabilities possible. Plus, Aviat’s Private LTE backhaul offers much lower CAPEX and OPEX compared to other solutions, such as fiber or leased lines. There are several key considerations to keep in mind when you develop your private LTE network. Find more information, download our infographic

Revolutionizing 5G Mission Critical Transport Networks (Part 2)

Part 1 of our “Revolutionizing 5G Mission Critical Transport Networks” blog post series addressed microwave versus fiber as the better solution for mission critical 5G. We now continue our exploration focusing on mission critical use cases. Many critical applications, such as connected/autonomous cars, industrial Internet of Things (IoT), M2M, and public safety applications, require consistent reliability from their mobile networks. Under threat of multi-day outages from disasters and other types of network downtime and service outages, mobile networks must ensure the reliability and resiliency needed for 5G operation and its critical missions.

FWCC Webinar Recap: Potential problems permitting unlicensed RLAN operations in the 6 GHz band

As many readers are aware, the FCC issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) regarding RLAN operation within the 6 GHz bands. Over the last two and a half years, the FWCC has dedicated itself to protecting fixed links from t in these bands. Understandably so, this is especially important given the diversity of fixed link users in the 6 GHz bands; among others, utility companies, oil and gas companies, and local government agencies, including those dealing with public safety, have large numbers of 6 GHz links that perform unique and crucial tasks. There are approximately 97,000 fixed links in the 6 GHz bands.

Case Study: Wicked Fast Internet’s Successful Multi-Band Deployment

Jeremy Ranch Golf & Country Club is in the Upper East Canyon of the Wasatch Mountains, on the outskirts of Park City, Utah. The Jeremy Ranch facility overlooks the rapidly expanding East Canyon Creek region, which includes Park City. To serve this growing community, Wicked Fast Internet looked for a way to provide high-capacity services to residents and businesses. They wanted to keep costs down and make sure that the selected technology would accommodate newly emerging high-capacity services, population growth, and geographical expansion.

5G network services promise higher-speed connections, greater reliability, and low latency. Industrial applications will drive new mobile IoT applications that support mission-critical applications. These demands have led to the development of 5G, built to support an abundance of IoT, higher capacity, and very low latency connections.

Did you know?...Multi-Band makes the most sense only when you combine E-Band with Licensed Microwave

Did you know?…Multi-Band makes the most sense only when you combine E-Band with Licensed Microwave

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?
