Wireless transport solution supplier Aviat Networks announced its deal with Globe Telecom for the deployment of its WTM 4800 E-band and multi-band radio platform to support their 5G rollouts.
Aviat Networks said WTM 4800 is the industry’s only single box, multi-band solution which lowers total cost of ownership (TCO) significantly, compared to alternative multi-band solutions.
Multi-band is an important wireless transport technology applying the optimal use of spectrum leading to higher bandwidth supporting Globe’s backhaul requirements for 5G and Enterprise at the lowest cost per Gbps, said Constantine A Serafica, head of Transport Network Division, Globe Telecom.
Globe Telecom will also use the Aviat Design tool for multi-band link planning, allowing the telecom service provider to simplify network planning of multi-band links. Globe Telecom will be using Aviat’s NETCONF/YANG interfaces to support its automation and software defined networking (SDN) initiatives.
Aviat Networks’ WTM 4800 multi-band solution is designed to advance Globe Telecom’s SDN framework and will help lower overall network operations costs, said Stan Gallagher, interim chief executive officer of Aviat Networks.
