Union Wireless Chooses Aviat for Rural Broadband Expansion

May 11, 2021

AUSTIN, Texas, May 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Aviat Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNW), the leading expert in wireless transport solutions, today announced that Union Wireless, a telecommunications service provider and recipient of awards from the Connect America Fund (CAF II), USDA Re-Connect, and the FCC Rural Development Opportunity Fund (RDOF), has selected Aviat all-outdoor WTM radio systems to increase backhaul capacity and extend its network. Union Wireless currently serves southern Wyoming and portions of Colorado, Utah, and Idaho, and is purchasing the Aviat systems through the Aviat Store.

"While we are excited to have received government grants because the funds will help with our expansion, we are equally excited about our partnership with Aviat," said John Woody, Founder and CEO, Union Wireless. "Aviat radios provide us with the highest system gain and capacity, helping us to build a robust, cost-effective network. Their support is also exceptional and available whenever we need it, and buying online from the Aviat Store helps us plan our installs more efficiently, reduces our time-to-market, and lowers our costs."

The Aviat Store is the industry's only e-commerce platform and enables customers to purchase the Aviat systems and accessories they need when they need them. The result is faster lead times, order-on-demand capabilities, real-time order tracking, and product deliveries direct to the market, all while minimizing purchasing overhead and eliminating stocking and other expenses.

Aviat radios lead the industry in system gain and are the industry's first to provide multi-band functionality (microwave and millimeter wave) in a single box operating over a single antenna, significantly lowering customers Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) as compared to alternative solutions that require multiple radio units.

"For residents and businesses in rural areas, access to high speed broadband is the gateway to education, telehealth, entertainment, and economic growth," said Peter Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer, Aviat Networks. "Our suite of industry-leading systems, software services, and the Aviat Store uniquely position us as a preferred supplier to service providers like Union Wireless. We are honored to partner with Union Wireless, and we are committed to continue to meet the performance, capacity, and high-value requirements of our customers throughout the world."
