Aviat Networks announced 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.
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.
"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."
