Aviat Networks claims that WTM 4800 multi-band is the industry's first and only single box multi-band solution compared to alternative multi-band solutions that rely on two, three and even four separate boxes.
WTM 4800 is available in three (3) product versions: 10Gbps E-band: single channel 80GHz radio; 20Gbps E-band: dual channel 80GHz radio; and 10Gbps Multi-band.
Multi-band involves combining E-band (70-80GHz) with traditional microwave (6-42GHz) on a single microwave link, usually with a single antenna on each end. Multi-band drastically improves reliability and distance of E-band links and addresses other issues like pole sway and antenna alignment, says Aviat.
In addition, Aviat Design, Aviat's cloud-based path design tool, has been updated to support E-band and multi-band.
