Aviat Networks has received orders worth $13 million for a combination of microwave backhaul equipment and services to support the State of Oregon’s state radio system.
Oregon’s state radio system supports the Oregon State Police (OSP), the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and other first responders on a multi-agency wireless communications system. Aviat is installing its Eclipse IRU600 microwave radios and third-party equipment to help upgrade and consolidate the state’s emergency first responder radio networks. The project will provide the foundation for integration of state agency and other public safety radio systems into an interoperable network that will allow police officers, transportation workers and other public safety officials to transparently communicate with each other as appropriate across jurisdictions.
“Oregon has been a customer of Aviat’s for well over 20 years,” said Rob Reish, ODOT/OSP Wireless Section communication manager. “The reliability of the Aviat equipment has been phenomenal, and the installation and maintenance support from Aviat has always exceeded our expectations.”
