Case Study: Vodafone Fiji Successfully Deploys LOS MIMO Link Using WTM 4000 Solution
By Stuart Little, Director of International Product Line Marketing
Vodafone Fiji needed a solution to provide over 2 Gbps of capacity over a distance of more than 6.5 kilometers, but there was only one problem: lack of frequency spectrum. Vodafone only had a single 80 MHz channel allocation in the 11 GHz band. Aviat was able to design a link using their WTM 4000 all-outdoor radio platform, employing Line-of-Sight (LOS) MIMO to quadruple the efficiency of the single available frequency channel.
“The WTM portfolio has allowed Vodafone Fiji to significantly enable more capacity on the transmission network by using new innovative features such as adaptive dual carrier and MIMO…..Vodafone Fiji has been early adopters of new technology and I am very pleased to have Aviat Networks as a key partner in helping Vodafone Fiji deliver innovative products and services to its customers.”
