The microwave networking solutions provider won the contract with the State of Colorado and it will support “all state-wide mission-critical communications for public safety, first responders and various state agencies throughout Colorado.

"Aviat Networks is very proud to provide this mission-critical IP/MPLS microwave communications network for public safety officials in Colorado," said Michael Pangia, president and CEO of Aviat Networks.
