SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Aviat Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNW), the leading expert in microwave networking solutions, today announced the release of the Aviat WTM 3300 radio, the smallest and lightest 70-80GHz radio on the market1. The WTM 3300 redefines the urban backhaul market because it is purpose-built for deployment in newly "densified" city environments where traditional microwave and typical 70-80GHz radios cannot be installed due to large, highly visible parabolic antennas. Aviat Networks has already reached agreements with and made initial shipments of WTM 3300 radios to a new mobile operator customer in Central Europe, a new mobile operator customer in Western Europe and to an existing full-line telecom customer in South America.

The visual aesthetic impact on residents of neighborhoods where the radio is installed will be minimized due to the WTM 3300's small form-factor. This makes the WTM 3300 a truly "community friendly" backhaul radio perfectly suited for installation on lightpoles, sides of buildings and other locations that must adhere to strict city regulations and zoning ordinances.

"The Aviat WTM 3300 70-80GHz radio offers up to 1Gbps capacity, which makes it ideal for meeting the requirements of even the most stringent urban application," says Ola Gustafsson, Aviat Networks' senior vice president, product and services portfolio management. "WTM 3300 supports this high throughput at one-fifth the weight and one-half the power requirements of traditional all-outdoor Ethernet microwave radios."

With WTM 3300, operators no longer have to purchase separate antennas, eliminating a configuration step and shortening the equipment's installation period. This also contributes to the WTM 3300's lower total cost of ownership (TCO) in comparison to other 70-80GHz radios.
