Safaricom, the largest telecom company in Kenya has selected Aviat Networks’ WTM 4800 multi-band radio platform for 5G backhaul. 

Multi-band combines traditional microwave (6-42 GHz) and E-band (70-80 GHz) over the same link and same antenna. Multi-band lowers spectrum costs by offloading traffic from costly microwave spectrum onto less expensive E-band spectrum, while still maintaining the trusted reliability of microwave, said Aviat Networks.

Aviat’s WTM 4800 is the industry’s first and only single box multi-band solution on the market and is much simpler than alternative multi-band solutions that rely on two, three and even four separate boxes. This WTM 4800 multi-band network deployment was facilitated by, Aviat Design, our cloud-based path design tool. This is the industry’s only cloud-based multi-band link design solution allowing microwave planners to see a combined, integrated view of availability and capacity for the complete multi-band link.
