PARAMUS, New Jersey, February 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Ceragon Networks Ltd., (NASDAQ: CRNT), the #1 wireless backhaul specialist, today announced that its short haul wireless solution was selected by Vodafone Portugal to support a unique project meant to provide coverage for Portugal's large scale public events. The Ceragon solution will deliver up to 1Gbps radio capacity using innovative wireless short haul technology to back haul traffic coming from the 3G/4G cells that serve all local event attendees. Ceragon's FibeAir IP-20C is the solution of choice that successfully passed all stress tests performed both in Vodafone's labs and during trials in Vodafone's live network.
"After testing the Ceragon FibeAir IP-20C solution both in the Vodafone labs and live network, Vodafone Portugal was very impressed by its high capabilities and robustness," said Moisés Cruz, transmission and core integration manager of Vodafone Portugal. "Moreover, being an all outdoor platform, we were very pleased with the simplicity of the installation and commissioning, as it allows Vodafone operations to reduce set up time and relevant costs."
A revolutionary all outdoor multi-core solution, the IP-20C delivers gigabit capacity over narrow channels. The Ceragon wireless solutions deliver a number of value added benefits including: high-capacity over both short and long distances, best power-consumption per transported bit and robust radio technology for high availability and reliability. All these factors translate into a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for Ceragon customers around the globe.
"We are happy to be selected by Vodafone Portugal and to be able to showcase the performance of our IP-20 platform in critical real-world conditions via this project," said Ira Palti, president and CEO of Ceragon. "Our FibeAir IP-20C solution is the only system today capable of delivering multi gigabit capacities over a single licensed frequency channel. As such, FibeAir IP-20C provides the flexibility that mobile carriers need in order to meet diverse deployment scenarios in both urban and rural settings."
