Aviat Networks, the pre-eminent expert in microwave networking solutions, announced today that it has been named the No. 1 specialist supplier of microwave radio solutions in the wireless networking infrastructure industry by Infonetics Research, an independent telecommunications research organization. Aviat ranks first among all microwave specialists in 10 of 11 categories that service providers use to choose a microwave vendor, according to Infonetics' 2013 "Microwave Strategies and Vendor Leadership" survey.

The validity of the rankings derives from the robust sample size of 25 telecom operators, which represents 37 percent of capital expenditure and revenue worldwide in 2012. Additionally, each operator involved in the survey is a substantial user of microwave products.

"Compared to other specialist microwave-only vendors, Aviat fared best," says Richard Webb, directing analyst of Infonetics. "Aviat ranked No.1 among all microwave specialists in 10 out of 11 criteria for choosing a microwave vendor by service providers and consistently performed in the top four of all vendors."

The results of the survey indicated the Aviat rates No. 1 in the following categories: technology innovation, security, product reliability, price-to-performance ratio, total cost of ownership (NYSE:TCO), roadmap, solution breadth, service and support, management software, and financial stability. Another noteworthy outcome of this survey was product reliability, price-to-performance ratio, and TCO being preferred as the primary criteria for selecting a microwave vendor.
