Harris Stratex Networks Changes Its Name to Aviat Networks

By Stuart Little, Director of Corporate Marketing, Aviat Networks

On January 28, Harris Stratex Networks, Inc. will become Aviat Networks, Inc. Our new name and brand represent a culmination of our company’s transformation over the last three years from that of a specialized microwave backhaul equipment vendor to a world-class wireless IP network solutions provider, with a comprehensive portfolio of wireless access, backhaul and core networking products and lifecycle services.


Wireless public and private telecommunications operators need to be able to offer leading edge services and expand into new and emerging markets in order to position themselves for the future. Unfortunately they lack the time, resources, or local expertise to tackle new opportunities, while protecting their existing business given constrained resources and ROI pressures.

Mobile service providers also have a new sense of urgency to invest in their backhaul network to avoid the capacity crunch that is being driven by the explosion in bandwidth demand as a result of the introduction of new smart devices and the evolution of networks to LTE. At the same time these operators must address the so-called ‘Revenue Gap’ – the widening divergence between increasing network operational costs and flat subscriber revenue.

All around the world service providers and network operators are also now planning to introduce new broadband services or simply lower network operational costs to strengthen their competitive position. From Africa throughout Asia and in the USA, operators are building networks that extend simple voice or new broadband data services to un-served or under-served communities, and are seeking to implement new technologies such as Smart Grids, often funded by government stimulus funds.


Aviat offers best-of-breed transformational broadband solutions that provide operators with the speed and agility to seize new service and market opportunities, while optimizing legacy investments which fuels sustainable growth, as well as operational peace of mind.

With a rich legacy of innovation and technical expertise, we deliver complete wireless solutions to build, expand and evolve communications networks globally. Our products and services extend from the core to the edge, private and enterprise networks to broadband mobility, planning to execution.

Our LTE-ready microwave backhaul solutions provide the most comprehensive IP transport features of any other wireless backhaul solution in its class, giving operators the peace of mind that the solution that they deploy today will provide a smooth migration path to all-IP networks needed tomorrow, extending life of their existing infrastructure and without having to make a risky early leap to all-IP.

Our WiMAX access portfolio provides an immediate and cost-effective solution to deliver high speed broadband wireless data services. Our solution includes everything an operator could need, from access, high speed wireless backhaul, to core services and umbrella service assurance, all backed by a broad range of deployment options and services, including end-to-end managed services that address multi-vendor, multi-protocol environments.


Our global reach and strong portfolio accelerates time to market and ensures a scalable, high performance network. Unlike monolithic telecommunication vendors who subscribe to a “one size fits all” approach to serving operators – large and small – which results in vendor lock-in, Aviat is known for its highly individualized transformation experience which net better results.

In an environment of uncertainty and unrelenting competitive pressures, Aviat has the experience and agility to anticipate what’s coming to help our customers make the right choices so that their investments today aren’t left stranded tomorrow. Because we’re thinking ahead, our products and services are designed for flexible evolution, so no matter what the future brings operators will have all options that they need to move forward and thrive.

And with local presence on the ground worldwide, our migration experts understand specific local requirements and customs. We work by the side of our customers with personal attention and collaboration to understand and meet the unique challenges of their business and markets.


Aviat Networks is enabling the broadband future. From fixed networks to broadband mobility, from TDM to all Ethernet/IP, from public to private, from planning to managed services, from the core to the edge – we help customers create, expand and manage the best networks for their markets and their bottom lines.
