April this year, Aviat Networks, a global provider of microwave networking solutions released the Aviat WTM 3300 radio, a compact form factor and light weight 70-80GHz radio catering for urban radio backhaul market. The new radio, which caters for the small cell and macrocell wireless backhaul markets as well as enterprise broadband connectivity, will transform our skylines by taking the place of large, highly visible parabolic antennas that are common feature in almost every town and city. Highly populated areas in cities with dense buildings are expected to benefit tremendously from this new radio solution which can improve coverage, connectivity and quality of mobile services without creating unnecessary new structures across buildings and public areas.
PCC Mobile Broadband spoke to Gary Croke, Director, Marketing, Aviat Networks on how the WTM 3300 radio will impact Communications Service Providers (CSPs)' strategy in meeting the demand in the capacity and quality of service across their mobile networks and how its form factor will drive a significant shift in the way the last mile telecommunications infrastructure is designed. The full video of the interview entitled 'How the World's Smallest and Lightest 70-80Ghz radio will change the Way Networks are Built' is published as part of PCCMB's Q&A Series.
