More on 4 Realities of Rain Fading Over the years, Aviat Networks has learned a lot about deploying microwave hops for our customers. This white paper provides expanded insight on four realities of rain fading in higher frequency microwave bands including that rain outage:
Approximately doubles in each higher microwave wave band, e.g. 18 to 23 GHz
Remains directly proportional to path length—assuming a constant fade margin for each hop
Is the same in tandem-connected short hops as for a single long hop—if they have the same fade margin
Multipath fading in optimally aligned millimeter wave hops does not occur during periods of heavy rainfall, so the entire path fade margin is available to combat rain attenuation fades
