On July 30, 2008, Aviat Networks (then Harris Stratex Networks) announced the opening of the company's newest office in Sydney, Australia. The company will supply operators with cost-effective wireless transport solutions to enable customers to transport high-speed, carrier-class Ethernet data, alongside traditional TDM traffic, to support network migration to next-generation IP services.
Aviat will also be able to provide enhanced turnkey services, including radio and IP network planning, engineering and deployment services, and technical service and support for customers in the region. With major Australian operators expanding and rolling out 3G networks and the government planning a $4.7 billion initiative to connect 98% of the population to high-speed data services through the National Broadband Network initiative, Sydney is a key location for business presence in the Pacific telecommunications arena.
Aviat Networks has been providing wireless backhaul solutions in the Australian market for more than 20 years. The new location will support the company's extensive customer base, including a number of major contracts with fixed, mobile, broadcast media and WiMax operators in the region.
Aviat Networks recently introduced the Eclipse Edge, the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly wireless transport product in its class. The new ultra-lightweight and compact solution will provide high-speed wireless connectivity for both native NxE1 TDM and Carrier Ethernet data. This capability enables mobile operators to deploy cost-effective, next-generation IP services right to the network edge.
