AUSTIN, Texas, June 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Aviat Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNW) this week announced a partnership agreement with Netronics Communications to deliver microwave solutions throughout the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia. Under the agreement, Netronics will expand its NetStream product family by incorporating Aviat's WTM 4000 microwave platform. For Aviat, the WTM 4000 has proven disruptive for the ISP market in various countries around the world, and this new strategic partnership will allow expansion in the Middle East.
Netronics Communications has an office in Dubai and uses the technical and marketing support of independent mother company Netronics Technologies, a Canadian company based in Markham, Ontario. Netronics Communications focuses on WISPs and integrators as well as enterprise networks and other communications vertical markets. As a leader in the wireless communication domain in the Middle East and North Africa markets since 2002, Netronics is enhancing the NetStream product family with embedded Aviat technology for enhanced capacity and efficient spectrum utilization. Aviat's WTM4100 and WTM4200 product family embedded within the NetStream product family will overcome capacity bottlenecks and improve spectral efficiency.
The agreement will create opportunities for Netronics to upgrade and replace existing radio links throughout the region, providing more capacity and reliability than current deployed technology. The partnership brings value to both Aviat Networks and Netronics to collaborate and leverage each other's strengths to better serve customer demands.

Aviat's technology will significantly enhance our NetStream product family and their support capabilities will enable us to provide exceptional service to all our customers," stated Bob Loghmani, CEO of Netronics.
