Aviat Networks, a leading provider of microwave networking solutions, Thursday announced multiple deals with a major African mobile operator. Aviat will provide CTR microwave routers and Eclipse and STR microwave radios as part of the deals in Gabon, Nigeria and Tanzania, where the operator has its operations.

In Gabon, the carrier will implement the CTR 8440 microwave router for enterprise customers. In Nigeria, the carrier will install CTR 8540 microwave routers and STR microwave radios while leveraging WTM microwave radios on multiple routes for mobile backhaul. In Tanzania, the carrier has ordered CTR routers and has been deploying Eclipse and STR microwave radios to complete its backbone network

According to Aviat, its solution will enable the operator’s transition to a full IP network and these deployments are in preparation for the operator’s eventual migration to IP/MPLS.

Brian Jakins, vice president, Africa sales & services, Aviat Networks 
Throughout Africa, we are experiencing repeat business with one of the continent’s largest mobile carriers for the field-tested Eclipse, STR and WTM microwave radios and the new family of CTR microwave networking equipment. We expect repeat business to continue as we deploy Aviat solutions across the carrier’s other operating companies.
