Aviat Networks says that it is to supply its recently introduced trunking microwave radios to Wataniya Telecom Maldives. Since 2008, Aviat Networks has served as the sole microwave backhaul provider for Wataniya Telecom Maldives as it moved from 2G to 3G. Now, WTM 6000 long distance trunking radios will support its transition to Next Generation Networks and eventually to LTE services, with up to 4Gbps aggregate IP data throughput in the backhaul network.
Specifically, Aviat Networks will supply end-to-end turnkey products and services to deploy WTM 6000 radios in Wataniya's backhaul to extend its existing backbone of Aviat Networks' TRuepoint 6500 radios. Radios will be used as the core elements to backhaul 2G, 3G and leased-line traffic from Wataniya customers
The company will also provide network design and logistics services to
support the Wataniya backhaul network expansion
"Based on superior performance of its TRuepoint 6500 radios and superb execution of our 2008 network rollout, we've chosen Aviat Networks for the next phase of our network build," said Stephen Smith, chief operating officer of Wataniya Telecom Maldives.
