Aviat Introduces High Availability Routing Software

Aviat Networks Inc., an expert in wireless transport solutions, announced high availability (HA) routing software for the CTR 8740. Aviat is one of only a few router vendors on the market to support high availability software, with a targeted feature set designed for mission critical networks.

With its dual independent chassis architecture, CTR 8740 has unique capabilities to ensure no single point-of-failure including dual protected power supplies, best-in-class hitless software upgrades to eliminate traffic disruption, IP/MPLS segment routing for fast network convergence, and strong-security capabilities.

CTR 8740 supports a mix of high availability routing features such as graceful restart, non-stop forwarding, and segment routing which is ideally suited for deployment at both fiber and wireless transport sites in critical networks of all kinds.

In conjunction with the software, Aviat has released an update to its ProVision Plus software platform to enable point and click management of even the most complicated IP/MPLS networks. With cloud and premise deployment options, the new Provision Plus release simplifies operations, lowers costs, accelerates troubleshooting and allows for the automation of network functions.

Aviat has completed qualification with a lead customer – a large state-wide public safety network in the western United States. Aviat is taking orders for the product, which is now shipping in volume production.
