According to our research, for two years in a row, reliability is the No. 1 customer criteria for choosing a microwave vendor. High transmit power means more reliable microwave links; it is perhaps the most critical factor in enabling higher microwave network uptime. With this product, Aviat leads the industry in transmit power.

Richard Webb
Senior Directing Analyst , Infonetics

These rankings are based on a broad sample of 23 respondent operators, each being a significant user of microwave products. Aviat is highest ranked for security and well placed for product roadmap and solution breadth. Overall, this is one of the vendor's best showings in this report.

As they drive new generations of high capacity microwave into the backhaul for 3G and LTE, L2 will not be sufficient for the long term needs of many mobile operators. In a recent Heavy Reading survey of mobile operators using microwave backhaul, we found that 42 percent of mobile operators believe that L3 is 'very likely' to be needed in the access layer of the backhaul within three years.

As a router, CTR 8540 will enable a range of new IP and VPN services for our mobile backhaul and enterprise applications. Unlike other microwave radios that require adding an expensive, separate IP/MPLS router, CTR 8540 is the only product we found that integrates the microwave radio and IP routing features we need. As the incumbent carrier in Chile, Entel places importance on reducing the number of devices we provision at each cell site to save space and money. CTR does that for us by combining these two functions in one solution.

Juan Andres Guzman Barrios
Chief of Area Connectivity and Transmission Engineering , Entel Chile

The Aviat CTR microwave router is a great foundation for a long-term partnership with our nationwide LTE operator. It meets the high standards of quality and total cost of ownership that we demand from our partner's solutions.
