Ceragon Backhaul Solutions Selected by North America Carrier

April 6, 2009

Ceragon Networks Ltd., a provider of high-capacity LTE-ready wireless backhaul solutions headquartered in Israel, has announced that a North American wireless communications carrier has selected its advanced wireless Ethernet solutions. The company’s FibeAir® IP-10 systems, in combination with its High Power RF units, will be deployed to provide long-haul transport for high-speed data and voice services.

This deployment will support the carrier’s geographical expansion and network capacity enhancement. Initial orders are valued at over $6 M. Ceragon was selected for this important build due to its ability to deliver a high performance IP-based solution that supports multiple radio configurations. With superior system gain, Ceragon can provide its new customer the ability to extend its network reach while using smaller antennas.

The FibeAir IP-10 is a migration-ready platform that supports native Ethernet and Native2 (hybrid) TDM/Ethernet over a single platform. The combination with Ceragon’s advanced high power RF unit, the FibeAir RFU-HP, provides a unique solution for long haul IP and TDM applications. The solution utilizes advanced Adaptive Coding and Modulation for unmatched link optimization, ensuring the highest available capacities under any weather conditions. The solution can be deployed in both split-mount and all indoor configurations.

“This is an important strategic win for Ceragon as it delivers our most advanced platform into a new and prestigious customer,” said Ira Palti, President and CEO of Ceragon. “The decision to choose our solutions for its high-speed, long haul IP network is a ringing endorsement of our technology and strategy.”
