Ceragon Networks Ltd., a provider of high-capacity wireless backhaul solutions, has been awarded a $5 M follow-on equipment order from one of the leading mobile operators in Mexico. The equipment will be used as part of a large-scale infrastructure expansion that includes capacity upgrades for an existing 2.5G network as well as preparation to support advanced 3G services in the near future. This is the latest initiative between Ceragon and its Mexican customer, which began in 2000.

Mexico is a fast growing mobile communications market and Ceragon’s FibeAir® solutions will be used to deliver high capacity mobile backhauling in a 2xSTM-1 configuration. The advanced microwave systems are capable of operating in the 6 to 38 GHz frequency bands. Using single or dual independent, hot-swappable carriers with a cross-polar interference canceller (XPIC) mechanism, Ceragon solutions offer flexibility and reliability.

“We continue to strengthen our relations with our business partners in all regions of the world,” said Ira Palti, president and CEO of Ceragon Networks. “This selection by a leading operator in a significant mobile market is another vote of confidence in our technological innovation, high quality service and customer-focused support.”
