Aviat Networks has announced that Globe Telecom, a major provider of telecommunications services in the Philippines will deploy its WTM 4800 E-band and multi-band radio platform to support its 5G rollouts. WTM 4800 is the industry's first and only single box, multi-band solution which lowers total cost of ownership (TCO) significantly, compared to alternative multi-band solutions.
Multi-band is an important wireless transport technology applying the optimal use of spectrum leading to higher bandwidth supporting Globe's backhaul requirements for 5G and Enterprise at the lowest cost per Gbps.
The Aviat Design tool for multi-band link planning allows the provider to simplify network planning of multi-band links. Additionally, Globe will be leveraging Aviat's NETCONF/YANG interfaces to support its automation and software defined networking (SDN) initiatives, the result of close collaboration between the companies. The WTM 4800 multi-band solution is designed to advance Globe's end-to-end SDN framework and in turn, will help lower overall network operations costs.
The deployment of the WTM 4800 solution, along with the various services provided, will help enhance the customer value proposition and Aviat's technology leadership.
