Ceragon Boosts Wireless Backhaul Throughput
As wireless service providers seem to be battling to see who can provide the lowest cost
unlimited voice and data plans, a problem is emerging that needs to be dealt with quickly.
The issue is simply, how to cost-effectively upgrade network capacity to keep up with all the
growth in voice and data capacity.
Invariably much of the challenge carriers face is in wireless backhaul as so many base stations
are not located near fiber loops.
Enter Ceragon Networks and the company's newest wireless mobile backhaul solutions, the IP-
10 family. In a conversation with the company's CMO Aviv Ronai and Director of
Communication, Yoel Knoll the pair explained to me how this new product line offers
unparalleled capacity - up to 500 mbps over a single radio carrier using a single RF carrier in
Ronai had this to say about the company's latest solution, "FibeAir IP-10 enables risk-free
migration to IP/Ethernet while providing the highest possible capacities at any given radio-link
budget. This is achieved without any need to replace infrastructure or change the size or
quantity of licensed frequency channels. Moreover, by significantly reducing the number
external devices such as TDM cross-connect or Ethernet switch, both of which are integrated
into the FibeAir IP-10, we offer carriers the lowest total cost of migration."
As an added bonus, the solution also includes OA&M tools.
As the move to all IP wireless mobile backhaul continues, Ceragon Networks aims to be a solid
choice allowing carriers to maximize the spectrum they have so as to boost efficiency and
subsequently help offset the retail price reductions that seem to be continuing to happen over
