LITTLE FALLS, New Jersey, August 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Ceragon Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ: CRNT), the #1 wireless backhaul specialist, today announced the release of its FibeAir IP-20 Assured Platform. Leveraging on the worldwide success of the IP-20 Platform and having earned FIPS 140-2 validation by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the IP-20 Assured provides a premium wireless backhaul solution for enhanced security. It helps public safety organizations, utility companies and service providers, increase their operational efficiency, build highly reliable networks with high standards of encryption and security, and most importantly - keep first responders and other mission-critical customers connected. The IP-20 Assured Platform is available for shipment and will be exhibited at APCO August 15-16, 2016 in Orlando Florida.

The IP-20 Assured Platform resolves the tough challenges public safety organizations and other network operators face when building highly reliable secured networks for voice and multimedia services in an environment having scarce spectrum, as well as power and real estate constraints. Its unique multicore technology delivers multiple Gbps wireless backhaul for LMR, LTE and other secured access technology networks, while utilizing merely a fraction of the spectrum otherwise required. Moreover, it provides flexibility by supporting any deployment scenario, and allows on-demand site deployments wherever needed by overcoming spectrum availability constraints.

The IP-20 Assured Platform is available across all wireless backhaul frequencies from 6 to 86 GHz. It offers highly redundant and secured wireless backhaul with over-the-air encryption. The IP-20 Assured Platform enables network operators to meet service availability demands by providing physical and virtual security, advanced identity management, as well as a secured product architecture - all which are FIPS 140-2 validated. With the introduction of the new IP-20 Assured Platform, Ceragon customers confidently enjoy solutions that resolve their wireless backhaul challenges while addressing their most stringent security requirements.

"Ceragon recognizes its customers' growing needs for secured wireless backhaul and is committed to providing reliable, innovative solutions that meet the highest security standards," said Ira Palti, president and CEO of Ceragon. "Our IP-20 Assured Platform was designed to enable the highest value for our customers. It helps homeland security, utility companies and service provider organizations keep their networks always available and secure, so they can deliver on their mission - keeping users connected."
