Aviat Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNW), the leading expert in wireless transport solutions, today announced its latest hosted solution, Hosted FAS (Frequency Assurance Software), which is a turnkey software and services offering for interference management on microwave links.
As a new service, Hosted FAS is an option to the previously released FAS Expert System on its ProVision Plus platform, which runs on a customer’s network. Aviat will deliver the service via AviatCloud, a customer portal for accessing services from Aviat in a secure environment, which will free the customer from buying and deploying servers and updating and maintaining software on their networks, thus making it your turnkey solution for network interference management.
Hosted FAS is based on Aviat’s patent-pending FAS Expert System, which is custom-built to monitor and detect interference, perform trend analyses of the network over time to track interference, and isolate problem links before noticeable impacts occur. In addition to providing customers with a self-service portal to view their interference events and trends, Hosted FAS will also deliver analyses from Aviat engineers on interference issues. Like premise-based FAS, Hosted FAS will allow Aviat customers to baseline their microwave networks before Wi-Fi 6e devices get widely deployed so they can see interference effects over time.
“It is exciting to roll out this next installment in our suite of hosted services that help customers optimize and maintain their networks without significant capital investment,” said Pete Smith, President and CEO, Aviat Networks. “We continue to be encouraged by the customer reception of our AviatCloud platform, which will simplify all aspects of microwave operations for our customers.”
Demand is strong for FAS. Aviat has received multiple purchase orders, and Hosted FAS is already monitoring interference on two public safety networks in western USA.
