Frontline microwave company, Aviat Networks Incorporated, has announced plans to capitalize on its new brand identity to further rededicate itself to providing advanced IP wireless network solutions.
It also pledged its resolve to continue to make progress in radio access networks as well as support the evolution of wireless technology in developing telecommunication markets especially in Nigeria.
Speaking during the launch of the new company, Harald Braun, president and CEO of Aviat Networks said, â€œThe unveiling of Aviat Networks marks a significant milestone in the evolution of our company. The Aviat brand embodies our commitment to quality and innovative products, highly individualized services, operational excellence and industry leadership.â€
Continuing, he said, â€œIn markets around the world, advancements in wireless network capacity have often been constrained because carriers are grappling with operational network limitations and cost_related challenges that historically havenâ€™t been sufficiently addressed by telecom equipment vendors.
Instead of â€˜handshakeâ€™ assurances that do little to mitigate the perceived risk of IP migration, operators need practical and innovative solutions that help them bridge seamlessly from the legacy network of today to the network that will fuel their success in the future.â€
He said broadband is increasingly regarded as an essential utility for economic growth and social and political stability, which according to him is fueling deployment and expanding of broadband into the rural and underdeveloped areas of Africa, Asia, Middle East, and the Americas byÂ new business models and government incentive programs.
Given the significant differences in the local government, economy, demographics, terrain and existing network infrastructure, including limited spectrum availability, Braun said , â€œ itâ€™s not without challenges,â€ sayingÂ that building networks in these environments takes skill, understanding and experience, as well as working closely by the side of customers all the way.
From fixed networks to broadband mobility, from TDM to all Ethernet/IP, from public to private, from planning to managed services, from the core to the edge, he assured that Aviat Networks is and intends to continue to help operators create, expand and manage the best networks for their markets and their bottom lines.
According to the companyâ€™s officials in Nigeria, the new brand represents a culmination of the companyâ€™s transformation from that of a specialized microwave backhaul equipment supplier into a world_class provider of advanced IP wireless network solutions, energy and security system solutions, 4G broadband access and core solutions and comprehensive TDM to IP product migration lifecycle services.
Today, Aviat Networks is ideally positioned to help operators successfully evolve their existing networks toward an all_IP broadband future, expand into untapped rural and remote markets, and capitalize on the explosive growth of mobile data traffic around the globe
It will be recalled that Aviat Networks, a leading wireless expert in advanced IP network migration, building the foundation for the 4G/LTE broadband future, a couple of months ago announced its name change from Harris Stratex Networks. It offer best_of_breed transformational wireless solutions, including LTE_ready microwave backhaul, WiMAX access and a complete portfolio of essential service options that enable wireless public and private telecommunications operators to deliver advanced data, voice and video and mobility services around the world.
