Aviat Introduces New Ultra-High Power Indoor Microwave Radio

June 1, 2023

Aviat's new IRU600 UHP Radio enables relocation of Mission Critical links from 6 to the 11 GHz band to address concerns over potential interference

AUSTIN, Texas, June 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Aviat Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNW), the expert in wireless transport and access solutions, today announced a new 11 GHz indoor microwave radio with the highest transmitter power ever supported in the industry, to allow more capacity, longer links and provide operators with an alternative to deploy long distance links without the potential risk of interference in the 6 GHz band.

Aviat's IRU600 UHP (Ultra-High Power) delivers breakthrough transmit power performance which will allow 80% or more of the 90,000 6 GHz links currently in operation in the US to be moved to 11 GHz. This can be achieved with the same size of antennas to avoid any additional tower lease costs and maintaining the required 99.999% availability needed for critical data traffic.

"We are very excited to introduce our latest radio innovation that delivers more power in an 11 GHz digital microwave radio than ever before," said Pete Smith, CEO of Aviat Networks. "With IRU600 UHP operators now have a compelling option to ensure the highest network reliability by relocating mission critical links to the 11 GHz band, all with the lowest TCO."

Aviat has secured the first customer order for IRU600 UHP from a midwestern Utility customer, with initial shipments planned to commence in the second half of 2023.
