As capacity demand grows with 5G rollouts worldwide, increasing backhaul throughput is required. In order to provide high backhaul bandwidth as well as high availability, 5G networks are increasingly implementing backhaul via the new multiband solution supporting backhaul with microwave and millimeter-wave frequencies over one radio and one antenna.
MTI Wireless Edge Ltd. (AIM: MWE) is proud to collaborate with Aviat Networks, Inc. providing the first and only single radio, single antenna solution commercially available and deployed in 15/80, 18/80 and 23/80 GHz.
Dov Feiner, MTI’s General Manager commented, “We see this as an important milestone in our antenna offerings – we developed a new patented technology for this product line and are happy to collaborate with Aviat on this unique solution.”
“Aviat is excited to partner with MTI to deliver this new technology. With the rollouts of 5G networks around the world, we are seeing a surge in demand for multi-band and we believe we have the industry’s leading multi-band backhaul offering”, said Pete Smith, President and CEO, Aviat Networks.
On 07 June, Aviat announced that Safaricom, the largest telecom company in Kenya, selected Aviat’s WTM 4800 multiband radio platform for 5G backhaul. Multiband is uniquely beneficial in countries like Kenya, which have significantly high microwave spectrum costs. Multiband helps to lower spectrum costs by offloading traffic from costly microwave spectrum onto less expensive E-band spectrum, while still maintaining the trusted reliability of microwave.
