Aviat's Mission-Critical Microwave Remains the Trusted Choice for First
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 14, 2013
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Aviat Networks, Inc.
(NASDAQ: AVNW), the leading expert in microwave networking solutions, today
announced that it received orders worth over $10 million for a combination of
microwave backhaul equipment and services to support the public safety network
of one of the largest city municipalities in the United States. This win
reinforces Aviat's position as the most trusted supplier for first responder
microwave systems. A large proportion of the revenue was recorded in the
company's second fiscal quarter with the balance to be spread over the next
two to three quarters.
The network supports the city's police, firefighters and other first
responders on a multi-agency wireless system. Aviat is installing Eclipse IRU
600 and Eclipse ODU 600 radios to provide seamless migration to IP/MPLS and
LTE while supporting the mission-critical requirements of existing TDM
traffic, which will fully enable interagency communications critical in
addressing challenges during natural disasters, terrorist attacks and other
large-scale first-responder challenges.
In addition to improving interagency communications, the network will provide
infrastructure capable of supporting the state's future LTE network and
associated high-bandwidth applications such as video. According to a November
2012 public safety LTE and broadband market report by research firm Signals
and Systems Telecom (SNS Telecom), mobile video surveillance has a compounded
annual growth rate of 20 percent over the next five years, amounting to an
estimated $2.5 billion of global revenues in 2016.
"The public safety LTE infrastructure will need to support the next wave of
in-field crime-fighting tools, such as mobile surveillance video," say Tony
Ljubicich, vice president of sales, the Americas, Aviat Networks. "This
upgrade of the city's wireless voice and data microwave backhaul will deliver
LTE-proven bandwidth for video as well as other real-time applications such as
fingerprint matching and identity checks. Moreover, it is set to be leveraged
for integration into the statewide radio system when the time comes."
