Ceragon Networks has joined forces with industry leaders to successfully demonstrate Provider Backbone Bridges-Traffic Engineering (PBB-TE) protection over an adaptive modulation packet microwave, thus setting a new milestone for enabling carrier-grade Ethernet services in mobile backhaul networks with high capacity microwave.

The demonstration centres on the advanced FibeAir IP-MAX2 platform with its adaptive modulation capabilities that offer multiple service profiles over a single radio link. By enabling carrier-grade services over microwave the company paves the way for migrating these networks to cost efficient carrier Ethernet.

Aviv Ronai, chief marketing officer at Ceragon, commented: “As more and more operators are looking to IP/Ethernet-based backhaul solutions, powering them with true carrier-grade quality solutions becomes a major competitive differentiator.”
