The WTM 4800 is the first and only single box, multi-band radio platform that lowers total cost of ownership (TCO) significantly, compared to alternative multi-band systems.
Globe will also use the Aviat Design tool for multi-band link planning, allowing the provider to simplify network planning of multi-band links. Additionally, Globe will be leveraging NETCONF/YANG interfaces from Aviat to support its automation and software defined networking (SDN) initiatives, the result of close collaboration between the companies. The WTM 4800 multi-band platform is designed to advance Globe's end-to-end SDN framework and in turn, will help lower overall network operations costs.
"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," stated Mr. Constantine A. Serafica, Head of Transport Network Division, Globe Telecom. "Aviat's WTM 4800 multi-band solution is unique in the industry and we look forward to leveraging this technology across our network footprint as we migrate to 5G in the coming months."
