Aviat Networks has announced that DISH Network Corporation has selected Aviat's hardware and software to enable a high-capacity 5G microwave wireless transport network. DISH will procure these products from the Aviat Store ecommerce platform.
Aviat's value proposition for DISH includes products like the industry's only single box multi-band system, highest system gain radios for optimum capacity, and radios with integrated software defined networking (SDN) capabilities.
"Aviat will play a central role in helping us utilize microwave, which has become a highly sought-after component of the wireless transport mix," said Jeff McSchooler, DISH Executive Vice President of Wireless Network Operations. "This microwave-based solution will help deliver the midhaul and backhaul connectivity we need, while excelling in affordability, reliability and resilience."
"The 5G wireless transport market is expected to grow exponentially to over $1B in 2023, and microwave will play a critical role in this growth. Despite common perception, it's not just about fiber," said Jimmy Yu, Vice President, Dell'Oro Group.
"Being selected as a key wireless transport supplier by a technology innovator like DISH validates our position as a leader in wireless backhaul for 5G networks," stated Pete Smith, President and CEO, Aviat Networks. “As 5G networks migrate to O-RAN, operators are able to choose the best-in-class backhaul vendor.”
