INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — BATS Wireless (BATS) and Aviat Networks (NASDAQ: AVNW) have formed a partnership to market stabilized antenna tracking systems. The BATS systems, when coupled with Aviat’s industry-leading microwave radios, deliver ultra high-capacity connectivity for both mobile and nomadic vehicles and vessels.

Ideal for the unique demands of the energy market, the joint solution will provide the flexibility needed for nomadic, offshore corporate networks.

BATS’ antenna systems provide connect and track technology, allowing for the dynamic connection and continual movement of stabilized, high-throughput, point-to-point (PTP) microwave communications.

"Together with BATS we have built an integrated system that we believe offers the best solution for secure and highly reliable communications to moving platforms such as FPSOs," says Brian Jakins, Aviat Networks Vice President of Sales & Services, Africa. "We are delighted this partnership with BATS has already borne fruit and look forward to building on these successes."
