E-Band Communications Corporation, a developer of 70/80 GHz point-to-point wireless backhaul solutions, announced an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement under which Aviat Networks will market and support E-Band's radios worldwide. E-Band's flagship product is the E-Link 1000EXR, a full duplex fiber-equivalent speed Gigabit Ethernet point-to-point radio which provides +22 dBm of output power and extremely low latency (<5us).

Aviat's backhaul solutions now cover frequency ranges from 4 to 86 GHz.

E-Band Communications features a Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) technology originally designed for high-end military applications and now under exclusive field-of-use license from a major defense contractor. E-Band's investors include Avalon Ventures, Hercules Technology Growth Capital, Reliance ADA Group, ADC Telecommunications, Investec, Express Ventures, OpenAir Ventures and a top-three U.S. telecommunications carrier.
