Resilient and Secure
State-of-the-art design delivers lower Total Cost of Ownership than alternative solutions, and integrated microwave awareness further lower CAPEX and OPEX by removing the need for a separate microwave indoor unit. CTR 8740 delivers robust high availability support for protection against hardware failures, IP/MPLS segment routing for faster network convergence and increased scalability; and strong-security capabilities, such as TACACS+, local user account management and management Access Control List.

Simplifying Transport Networks
CTR 8740 is designed to simplify transport networks. With its versatile IP/MPLS feature set, CTR 8740 enables a single low-cost solution for both fiber and microwave transport sites to reduce the number of devices that need to be installed. CTR 8740 provides a single-box solution for some radio architecture deployments and adds MPLS capability to existing Layer 2 networks. A high-capacity switching fabric allows deployment in access, pre-aggregation or aggregation applications, in a variety of topologies. Fewer parts enables simplified ordering, management and maintenance.

Advanced Layer 2 CE, Layer 3 IP/MPLS and Segment Routing support addresses evolving backhaul needs for mobile, mission critical, WISP and enterprise networks.

Patented Aviat 10 Gbps Layer-1 Link Aggregation (L1LA) delivers robust multi-channel links up to 8+0, with maximum throughput efficiency and seamless protection for critical traffic.

Optional High Availability (HA) support ensures robust protection against hardware failure and no single point-of-failure, with graceful restart, non-stop forwarding.
