Ahead of MWC 2017 Aviat Networks launched its newest microwave radio platform, the WTM 4000, featuring a single radio transceiver capable of delivering up to 2.5 Gbps uncompressed throughput per radio transceiver in a dual-channel configuration, which Aviat claims is the highest capacity ever delivered in a microwave radio. WTM 4000 is also offered in a double-transceiver variant (Adaptive Dual Carrier, or A2C), with up to 5 Gbps throughput with 4x4 LOS MIMO. Both variants (single- and double-transceiver) will support inherent IP-SDN capabilities and a pay-as-you-go software licensing scheme. Now that this product is commercially available we take a look at its features and assess the potential impact on the microwave network equipment market.
