SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Aviat Networks, Inc.
(NASDAQ: AVNW), a leading expert in microwave networking solutions, today
announced that it will be exhibiting at AfricaCom 2012, November 13-15, in
Cape Town, South Africa. The company will highlight its LTE-proven microwave
solutions at this leading telecommunications conference in Africa. For
Africa's mobile operators planning their rollout of LTE wireless technology,
this is an important opportunity to learn about the advantages of Aviat's
LTE-proven technology.

Aviat's understanding of large national LTE deployments provides relevant
lessons for all African operators who are modernizing their networks to add
capacity, reduce complexity and migrate to IP—all of which will be critical
for the eventual introduction of LTE. Aviat is already leveraging this
experience in an early LTE deployment for one of the continent's major
carriers.

During the show, Aviat Networks will be sharing its experiences deploying LTE
backhaul in the largest LTE networks in the world. African mobile operators
can benefit from this guidance to sort out the many confusing topics and
uncertainties about LTE backhaul. To find out more, visit Aviat Networks in
