New Software Solution Protects Against 6 GHz Interference Due to Unlicensed Wi-Fi 6E Operation

Aviat Networks, a leading expert in wireless transport solutions, announced its latest hosted solution, Hosted FAS (Frequency Assurance Software), which is a turnkey software and services offering for interference management on microwave links.

As a new service, Hosted FAS is an option to the previously released FAS Expert System on its ProVision Plus platform, which runs on a customer's network. Aviat will deliver the service via AviatCloud, a customer portal for accessing services from Aviat in a secure environment, which will free the customer from buying and deploying servers and updating and maintaining software on their networks, thus making it your turnkey solution for network interference management.

Features of the FAS are as follows:

  • Hosted FAS is based on Aviat's patent-pending FAS Expert System, which is custom-built to monitor and detect interference, perform trend analyses of the network over time to track interference, and isolate problem links before noticeable impacts occur.
  • In addition to providing customers with a self-service portal to view their interference events and trends, Hosted FAS will also deliver analyses from Aviat engineers on interference issues.
  • Like premise-based FAS, Hosted FAS will allow Aviat customers to baseline their microwave networks before Wi-Fi 6E devices get widely deployed so they can see interference effects over time.

Demand is strong for FAS. Aviat has received multiple purchase orders, and Hosted FAS is already monitoring interference on two public safety networks in the western USA.
