Aviat Networks
Microwave networking solutions company Aviat Networks has bagged a $28 million project — over three years — from the State of Colorado.

The strategy of State of Colorado is to utilize Aviat Networks’ microwave networking solutions to offer mission-critical IP/MPLS microwave communications network to public safety officials in Colorado.

Aviat Networks, as per the deal, will implement a network using Aviat’s microwave, IP/MPLS routers, management software and turnkey services. The network will support all statewide mission-critical communications for public safety, first responders and various state agencies throughout Colorado.

Aviat Networks will supply IRU 600 EHP, its microwave radio, to enable State of Colorado to use smaller antennas and avoid spending millions of dollars in costly tower retrofits.

Aviat Networks will provide a complete turnkey solution to the state, including hardware, software and all services for planning, engineering, installation and support to design and implement this network.

Aviat Network’s integrated microwave and routing solutions, hybrid all-indoor radios for seamless migration to IP and USA-based design, manufacturing and support were the other selection factors used by the State of Colorado in choosing Aviat.

Michael Pangia, president and CEO, Aviat Networks, said: “We have a highly differentiated offering for state and local government customers with products, services and support specifically designed for this market segment.”
