Aviat Networks Awarded $13 Million Microwave Backhaul Contract With The State Of Oregon

Stocks in this article: AVNW

SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aviat Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNW), the leading expert in microwave networking solutions, today announced that it has received orders worth $13 million for a combination of microwave backhaul equipment and services to support the State of Oregon's State Radio System. This order confirms that Aviat's mission-critical microwave remains the trusted choice for first responder communications.

Oregon's State Radio System supports the Oregon State Police (OSP), the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and other first responders on a multi-agency wireless communication system. Aviat is installing its Eclipse IRU600 microwave radios and third-party equipment to help upgrade and consolidate the state's emergency first responder radio networks. Overall, the project will provide the foundation for integration of state agency and other public safety radio systems into an interoperable network that will allow police officers, transportation workers and other public safety officials to transparently communicate with each other as appropriate across jurisdictions. Aviat's LTE-proven Eclipse IRU600 radios are deployed in some of the world's largest LTE networks, so by deploying these radios, the state lays the foundation for the public safety LTE network of the future.

" Oregon has been a customer of Aviat's for well over 20 years," says Rob Reish, ODOT/OSP Wireless Section communication manager. "The reliability of the Aviat equipment has been phenomenal, and the installation and maintenance support from Aviat has always exceeded our expectations. We expect no less as we implement our new microwave network. Aviat's people consistently show that reliability and customer satisfaction are their primary goals."

"Aviat has a long history working with public safety network operators in North America. The linchpin for those operators has always been the robust, wide bandwidth available in our company's portfolio of high reliability, high capacity licensed microwave radios," says Tony Ljubicich, vice president North America Sales and Services, Aviat Networks. "As a global leader in wireless infrastructure solutions for telecom networks, we welcome the challenge to help integrate the state's first responder networks."
