PARAMUS, New Jersey, July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Ceragon Networks Ltd., (NASDAQ: CRNT), the #1 wireless backhaul specialist, today announced that a large Asia Pacific (APAC) mobile operator is deploying Ceragon's solutions as part of its LTE network upgrade.  Adding to its large existing install base, these new orders, valued at over $3.5 million, will enable the operator to expand both network capacity and availability thereby providing the necessary infrastructure to support current and future data traffic needs.  Ceragon is also supplying a range of professional turnkey services including planning, network design and project management to ensure fast time to market for the operator and fast time to service for its customers.

According to an Ernst & Young report on Mobile Broadband Readiness, APAC is experiencing exponential growth of data volumes largely due to the popularity of smartphones and tablets, and by 2016 the region is expected to account for one-third of the total global mobile data traffic.  This surge in data traffic is placing enormous pressure on the already limited network capacity and operators are increasingly rolling out 4G/LTE networks as one of their strategies to relieve network strain.

"Ceragon's microwave backhaul solutions offer operators in the APAC region a quantum leap in capacity for their 3G and 4G network rollouts without sacrificing profitability," said Ira Palti, Ceragon Network's President and CEO. "Our solutions are easy to install, highly reliable, and ensure high service availability. This translates to a faster ROI for operators especially when supported by the knowledge and understanding of our locally-based professional services teams."
