Telecom Fiji Deploys Aviat for All-IP Microwave Trunking

Telecom Fiji Limited (TFL), the island nation's sole provider of local and national telephony services, is deploying Aviat Networks' WTM 6000 all-IP trunking microwave radios to link the main islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. Aviat Networks will design radio paths and install the high-capacity network for TFL, replacing an aging PDH radio network.

The network must overcome two very demanding paths of approximately 80km of mountainous terrain and the ocean between the islands. In addition, the replacement solution offer the capability to eventually be migrated to an all-IP architecture.

The WTM 6000 complements the Aviat Networks' Eclipse Packet Node radios already in TFL's network. Both will be managed by Aviat Networks' ProVision element management system.
