Aviat Networks, Inc. AVNW recently announced the addition of a significant enhancement to its WTM 4800 Multi-Band product line. Dubbed MB-XD, the latest improvement will enable superior multi-band solutions to support 5G with augmented rural broadband networks on the back of extended radio links over longer distances.

With an experience of more than seven decades, Aviat Networks has been a global provider of microwave networking solutions. The entity offers public and private operators with communications networks to cater to the accretive demand for IP-centric, multi-gigabit data services.

With avant-garde technology, Aviat simplifies the entire lifecycle of designing, deploying, and maintaining wireless transport networks with greater performance and reliability. The WTM 4800 is touted as the industry’s simplest multi-band solution.

It considerably minimizes the total cost of ownership (TCO) compared to alternative solutions that are dependent on two, three, and four separate multi-band radio boxes. It is a unique radio platform that has been specifically designed to support E-Band and Multi-Band 5G transport applications.

The WTM 4800 is available in three different product options — 10 Gbps E-Band (Single channel 80 GHz radio), 20 Gbps E-Band (Dual channel 80 GHz radio), and 10 Gbps Multi-band (single channel 80 GHz plus a single or 11-23 GHz dual-channel microwave radio).

The recent incorporation of MB-XD capability in Aviat’s WTM 4800 Multi-Band product line will facilitate operators to reduce their TCO by up to 90% per link compared to other fiber alternatives. Further, it will support ultra-long-distance applications while extending the reach of 10 Gbps links over distances up to 20 km.

It will also help in significantly reducing recurring spectrum fees. These robust characteristics of the MB-XD enhancement are likely to enable operators to deliver state-of-the-art network services at higher capacities and bolster Aviat’s global footprint by expanding its diverse portfolio of wireless transport solutions and services.

Aviat is well-positioned to benefit from robust market dynamics, cost-reduction efforts, favorable customer mix, and higher investments in innovative software solutions. A solid liquidity position and balance sheet despite the COVID-19 uncertainties are likely to aid the company in executing key long-term strategic objectives.

Backed by a resilient business model, Aviat Networks benefits from strong demand for best-in-class broadband connectivity in rural areas and mission-critical networks. Also, higher revenues from private network business in North America, significant bottom-line improvement, and margin expansion fueled by an upsurge in software sales bolsters the company’s profitability.
