MILPITAS, Calif., June 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Aviat Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNW), the leading expert in microwave networking solutions, today announced it has received $4.0 million in follow-on orders from five utility customers in the US Southeast region. Received in the Company's fiscal 2017 fourth quarter, these orders involve upgrades to communications infrastructure to support the addition of new substations and power generation facilities. These orders also include the introduction of new high bandwidth applications such as video and security, while maintaining critical services like grid monitoring and protection.
U.S. utilities depend on Aviat's hybrid, mission-critical radio platform, the IRU 600. Its extra high power (EHP) option allows utilities to achieve more capacity, higher reliability, smaller antennas, and longer paths. These factors, combined with even more capacity from recently announced RAC70, makes this platform ideal for the evolution of legacy utility networks to transport next-generation applications.
"We continue to receive consistent follow-on business from multiple utility customers and our position with both Public Safety and Domestic Utilities continues to expand," states Michael Pangia, president and CEO, Aviat Networks. "Based on our offering, customer relationships and overall value proposition, we believe we are well positioned to continue to increase our share in this market in the coming years."
