Aviat Networks Unveils Advanced Ethernet Switching over Microwave
Aviat Networks has announced enhanced integrated Ethernet switching capabilities for its Eclipse Packet Node microwave transmission platform to address the rapid growth of mobile broadband data traffic. The enhanced platform was successfully tested by the European Advanced Networking Testing Center in August at the industry’s largest annual Carrier Ethernet interoperability test event and is being demonstrated this week at the Carrier Ethernet World Congress in Warsaw, Poland.
Mobile backhaul traffic continues to grow globally, driven by the proliferation of smart phones loaded with mobile data and video-intensive applications. As operators expand their backhaul networks to accommodate this surge, Ethernet-equipped microwave systems continue to serve a critical role.
