Aviat Networks Improves End-to-End Equipment Latency by up to 30 Percent
Symbol Repeater Reduces Latency, Improves Reliability over Long-Distance Microwave Routes for Carrier 12Horizons
CHICAGO, June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — THE TRADING SHOW — Aviat Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNW), the leading expert in microwave networking solutions, today announced the addition of the Symbol Repeater feature to its Eclipse platform for low latency microwave networks. This results in end-to-end equipment-related latency improvement of up 30 percent depending on route and configuration. When used in conjunction with the Adaptive Intelligent Repeater (AIR), the Symbol Repeater provides class leading low latency performance for adaptive IF, Digital and Symbol Repeater functionality while supporting hitless Space Diversity path protection. This functionality has been operating successfully since early 2014.
“Aviat allows us to deliver the lowest latency offerings available in the market with unmatched reliability,” says Olivier van Weeren, sales director of 12Horizons. “We are proud to be the first carrier to provide a Microwave Radio Frequency link between Frankfurt and Zurich, connecting the critical datacenters in these financial hubs at unprecedented speeds. We chose Aviat after an exhaustive review of options in the low-latency market. In addition, TWS with its strong history of building low-latency networks for leading financial technology companies was key to ensuring that we had the fastest and most reliable network.” 12Horizons is a newly established low-latency connectivity provider, based in Singapore and Barcelona. TWS Technologies International, a leading systems integrator to fixed and mobile operators in the Benelux region of Western Europe, was enlisted to build, manage and maintain the network.
“For the low-latency customer who insists on using carrier-grade technologies, we only recommend the Aviat Eclipse platform,” says John Viester, director at TWS.
Aviat’s Symbol Repeater adds adaptive functionality to regain lost Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) on a dynamic basis, thereby achieving the benefits of repeating without adding modem (modulator-demodulator) latency. With the adaptive Symbol Repeater, symbol regeneration is included in the repeating circuitry, adapting to the level of microwave signal degradation as it is repeated to the next site. This removes the need to use full modem processing at intermediate sites over a route.
The Symbol Repeater functionality has been built on Aviat’s latest generation of FPGA-based IP core designed exclusively for low latency networks. This architecture enables Aviat to achieve further reductions in modem terminal latency as well as advanced data interface processing with increased throughput and optimized form factors. Aviat’s full service design, engineering, installation, service and support capabilities, ensures customers achieve optimum carrier-class low latency network performance.
