Aviat Networks has received orders worth $13 million for a combination of microwave backhaul equipment and services to support the State of Oregon's State Radio System.
Oregon's State Radio System supports the Oregon State Police (OSP), the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and other first responders on a multi-agency wireless communication system.
Aviat is installing its Eclipse IRU600 microwave radios and third-party equipment to help upgrade and consolidate the state's emergency first responder radio networks.
"Oregon has been a customer of Aviat's for well over 20 years," says Rob Reish, ODOT/OSP Wireless Section communication manager. "The reliability of the Aviat equipment has been phenomenal, and the installation and maintenance support from Aviat has always exceeded our expectations. We expect no less as we implement our new microwave network."
