Aviat Networks (NASDAQ:AVNW) announced that it has won a new project with the U.S. Navy to improve their communication services at Naval training bases.

Aviat, a leading microwave networking solutions company said that the project enables them to replace the leased fiber based communications with microwave based solution for increased reliability.

As quoted in the press release:

The first project involves deployment of microwave by a western region naval training base to deliver high speed communications to Navy pilots and other range users. The second project involves use of microwave radios across tactical training ranges for high speed communications for fleet training personnel. The microwave deployments will establish critical communications with zero dependencies on historically unreliable leased services including those built with fiber.

For Federal agencies, microwave provides more reliability and higher capacity than leased services to support high speed data especially video-based communications. In addition, if failures occur, owned microwave infrastructure enables agencies to recover faster as they are not dependent on a 3rd party to fix the problems which can take days in many cases.

Beyond the U.S. Navy, Aviat’s radios are deployed in Federal agencies including DOD, DHS, DOE and their supporting agencies. Aviat’s radios are approved for all licensed NTIA fixed frequency bands with key certifications such as DOD J/F-12, DODIN APL and NIST FIPS 140-2 Level 2. In addition to these capabilities, other factors contributing to this win included Aviat’s high product reliability, Made-In-America products and comprehensive services and support offering.

“Critical communications like that of the U.S. Navy must be built with highest reliability while also supporting next generation video-based applications,” states Michael Pangia, president and CEO, Aviat Networks. “Aviat’s value proposition for Federal agencies is based on delivering the most dependable solutions for our customers’ most critical applications.”
