Compliance with Leading ISO and Telecommunications Industry Standards Reflects Highest Quality Qualification for Telecom Products, Services and Solutions

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — Aviat Networks, Inc. /quotes/zigman/116523/quotes/nls/avnw AVNW -0.03% , a leading expert in wireless transmission solutions, announced today that it has achieved full company re-certification for ISO 9001:2008 and telecommunications industry quality standard TL 9000, the highest available quality certification for telecom products, services and solutions. Based on full re-certification Aviat Networks’ telecom customers can have peace of mind that Aviat Networks is highly qualified to provide solutions for use in their advanced telecommunications infrastructure and services provisioning. The TL 9000 standard was developed specifically for the needs of the communications industry by the QuEST Forum, of which Aviat Networks is a member and participates in its benchmarking activities and new revision improvements.

“Full company re-certification means that every department and business aspect of Aviat Networks has been strictly assessed for compliance to both the ISO 9001:2008 and TL 9000 quality standards by Bureau Veritas, resulting in an in-depth review of every category of our operations,” says Scott Graham, director of corporate quality, Aviat Networks. “This is another significant milestone for Aviat Networks and provides solid ongoing evidence–since our original TL certification in 2004–for current and prospective customers that we are a highly qualified provider of telecommunications products, services and solutions. These certifications give a guarantee to our customers that Aviat Networks can deliver on more than 90 telecom-specific business methods and assurances–something a non-TL-certified vendor cannot deliver. An increasing number of customers worldwide now make ISO 9000:2008 and TL 9000 certification requirements for all their suppliers.”

Bureau Veritas Certification North America, Inc.’s awarding of certification for Aviat Networks’ ISO 9001:2008 and TL 9000 compliance demonstrates the effectiveness of the company’s quality management system, ensuring delivery of the high-quality products and support that customers have come to expect.
