Aviat networks has introduced the Aviat WTM 6000, the industry’s first all-packet trunking radio designed to support up to 4Gbits of aggregate data.
The WTM 6000 is designed for long distance, high capacity wireless transmission applications with a compact indoor architecture, superior performance and a highly redundant design to ensue exceptional system availability.
Speaking at the launch Monday, in Lagos, the senior vice president and chief marketing officer, Aviat Networks, Mr Shaun McFall said the WT\M 6000 represented the next generation microwave solution for high capacity, long-haul all-IP and hybrid trunking applications, all with fibre-like speeds.
McFall stated that for the first time, the WTM 6000 incorporate, the latest packet transport features that have until now been only available in lower capacity microwave systems such as built-in ethernet switching, link aggregation and traffic prioritisation and quality of service controls.
He said, “the WTM 6000 is the highest density wireless trunking solution on the market, being the first system to accommodate up to 16 radio channels in a single sub-rack.”
Mcfall revealed that integrated switching and native ethernet/IP (Internet Protocol) support, the WTM 6000 provides optional support for NxSTM-I traffic, enabling operators to maintain legacy TDM services without having to use inefficient circuit emulation.
According to him the WTM 6000 was also the fist trunking radio in its class to support 256 AM adaptive coding and modulation (QAM) to enable operators achieve higher link capacities with smaller antennas which in turn reduces tower loading and infrastructure costs.
McFall explained that the product all-indoor design was optimised to efficiently accommodate complex system configurations and was not restricted by being adapted from split-mount radio design.
“Its highly compact base land/transceiver module eliminates cable interconnections and optimizes available rack space for additonal networking equipment”, he said.
Electronic Results Transfer: Only Media Can Save Nigerians – Onuesoke
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former Delta State governorship aspirant, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has appealed to Nigerians and the media to sustain the pressure on the members of the Senate, Federal Government and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on the merit of application of electoral transmission of voter’s result in 2023 polls.
Onuesoke’s appeal is coming on the heels of rejection of electronic transmission of voters’ results by Senators elected under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Reacting to the rejection while addressing journalists in Asaba, Delta State, he disclosed that with the rejection of electronic transformation of votes, it is duty of vocal Nigerians and the media as the Fourth Estate that can rescue the helpless masses by crying out loudly to the world the oppression of the Senators against those who voted them into office.
He alleged that the action of APC Senators was an assault on the sensibilities of Nigerians, who looked up to the Senate for improvement in our electoral process in a manner that would engender free, fair and credible process.
Onuesoke explained that the Senators claim that NCC had declared that only 43 per cent of the country was currently under effective telecommunications coverage is false as evidence abound that GSM phones are used in all the remote villages of Nigeria.
Community Woos Telecoms Over Mast Erection
The people of Ipo Community in Ikwerre Local Government Area have called on telecommunication companies in Nigeria to consider the need to erect communication mast in the area.
The Ipo Council of Chiefs Chairman, Chief Samuel Amadi made the call at a public function in the community recently.
Amadi said the call was unavoidable in that network provision in the area has become very poor.
He pointed out that as an Airport community, they deserve the best network provision as to enable it attain its international status.
According to him, the presence of mast in the area will also boost the business growth in the community.
He expressed regrets that the community could be lacking in such area even in this 21st century.
Though, was not particular about any network provider, but said that the community, would appreciate any of the telecommunication companies that came to their rescue.
He maintained that receiving and making calls in the community over the years has been a herculean task and wondered why the trend should continue.
“Lack of mast has been a challenge in our community. We can not make or receive calls with ease. Such a thing should not happen in this modern world” , he said.
The community leader, also blamed part of its plights on the nonchalant attitude of the Airport authority towards them as a host community.
“We have not benefited anything from the Airport authority. Even employment, they ignore us, while our graduates roam the streets in search of employment”, he said.
The Tide, however, gathered that the possibility of erecting telecommunication mast in Ipo is slim, due to its closeness to the International Airport, as mast are believed by experts to be a challenge to flight operations.

Reps Fail To Consider Two-Year SIM Swap Probe Report
The House of Representatives last Friday failed to consider the report by its Ad Hoc Committee on the Increasing Incidents of SIM Swap Fraud, which was mandated to carry out the investigation two years ago.
The report of the committee was listed for consideration on Thursday and Friday but was stepped down for the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill and the Electoral Act 2010 (Amendment) Bill 2020.
The National Assembly has now proceeded on a two-month annual recess.
The House had on July 25, 2019 resolved to investigate the alleged Subscriber Identification Module swap by service providers in the telecommunication and banking sectors, following the adoption of a motion moved by Mr Ifeanyichukwu Ibezi, titled ‘Increasing incidents of SIM swap fraud’.
The lawmakers had unanimously resolved to set up an ad hoc committee to conduct an investigative hearing on the ‘increasingly emerging trend of SIM swap fraud, with a view to determining ways that banks and telecommunications operators can collaborate in devising measures to combat the menace’.
In its recommendation, the panel, said, “Banks should be urged to stop using SMS as a primary method of communication; they should rather use encrypted messaging apps that are not as prone to snooping as SMS.”
It also recommended that the NCC and Central Bank of Nigeria ‘be urged to ensure that all monies lost as a result of card/ATM and web-based frauds are refunded to the affected subscribers/customers’.
