Aviat Networks says that it has won a contract from Papua New Guinea's Telikom PNG to deploy a total turnkey microwave transport system to support its National Broadband Network (NBN) rollout.
This new network is to be implemented in three phases this calendar year.
Aviat will supply its WTM 6000 microwave trunking platform for the project.
Telikom PNG Chairman Mahesh Patel says the creation of a new modern, high-speed microwave backbone signals an exciting chapter for Papua New Guinea, where mobile and fixed broadband services that were once inaccessible to the ordinary Papua New Guinean can be brought to his or her doorstep.
The contract is worth USD20 million.
