Ceragon Networks Ltd. has received two large follow-on orders, valued at several million dollars, from a major operator in Brazil. The new orders follow the company’s selection for the next phase of a wide deployment project that consists of handling all microwave transmission for the Rio de Janeiro, Espírito Santo and São Paulo states. Since the beginning of the year, Ceragon has secured orders for a number of deployment projects across Brazil worth tens of millions of dollars.

The company will introduce FibeAir® IP-10 radios with future proof IP features and higher throughput, ship its Evolution® Long-Haul products for long-haul applications and, in addition, provide full turnkey services to design and deploy a network spanning several hundred ‘hops’.

Ceragon’s high-capacity solutions will expand the reach and capacity of a national Brazilian backhaul network. In addition to new installations, the systems will also be used to upgrade legacy TDM microwave links to IP/Ethernet across the entire network. Easy to install and maintain, the Ceragon solutions feature future-proof design for simple, cost-efficient upgrades and faster return on investment.

"Our continued success with a leading regional operator, and the integration of our FibeAir IP-10 short-haul solutions for the first time into its network, reaffirm our customer’s confidence in our solutions offering," said Ira Palti, President and CEO of Ceragon Networks. “Ceragon’s quick response time and proven implementation performance played a major role in our selection. We are pleased to work with major operators who are rapidly expanding their service coverage in Brazil, and thereby strengthen our position in this important market.”
