Aviat Networks this week announced the release of the WTM 4800 E-band and multi-band radio platform for 5G transport applications.

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.

Earl Lum, President EJL, Wireless Research
The multi-band variant simplifies fronthaul/backhaul sites by reducing current configurations of multiple radios, cables, and a coupler to a single integrated radio unit. Additionally, the multi-band link planning tool on AviatCloud simplifies radio link design and planning down to six clicks of a mouse.

Michael Pangia, President and CEO, Aviat Networks
Combined with our automation tools, WTM 4800 makes multi-band easy for our customers to deploy, substantially lowering their total cost of ownership.
