Mission critical radio platform doubles capacity

May 09, 2017 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
The latest enhancements to the Eclipse mission critical radio platform from Aviat Networks has resulted in more than a doubling of over-the-air capacity.

These enhancements include a new radio card - the RAC70 - which will enable 1024QAM and 60/80MHz wide channels to maximize capacity in the 6 and 11GHz frequency bands. Over the air throughput, without compression or dependency on packet/frame sizes, increases from 188 Mbps to over 450 Mbps in the 6 GHz band.

Not only do these capabilities increase capacity for today, customers will also be future proofing their network as RAC70 is capable of 4096QAM modulation working with future versions of Aviat radio units which will begin rolling out this calendar year. This will ultimately result in over 250% more capacity than the current offering.

"With growing demand for high definition video and security applications, mission critical networks require more capacity than ever," states Michael Pangia, president and CEO, Aviat Networks. "IRU 600 is the leading radio platform for mission critical networks in North America and, with Aviat's continued investment in this solution, customers can be confident in knowing they can depend on IRU 600 for years to come."
