Ceragon (News - Alert) Networks Ltd., wireless backhaul specialist, has received initial orders from PEG Bandwidth, a provider of customized cell site backhaul networks for wireless carriers, for the FibeAir IP20-C.
FibeAir IP20-C is Ceragon's recently launched, new generation of multi-core, packet radio solutions.
FibeAir IP-20C delivers multi-Gbps capacity on a single frequency channel setting a new standard for efficient spectrum use. Combining breakthrough multi-core radio architecture with 2048 QAM modulation and line-of-sight (LoS) 4X4 MIMO, it enables operators to reach capacities that quadruple those of existing solutions.
FibeAir IP-20C’s unique multi-core radio architecture is based on an advanced parallel radio processing engine, built around Ceragon’s in-house baseband modem and RFIC chipsets. The result is superior radio performance with reduced power consumption and form-factor.
Officials with Ceragon said that FibeAir IP-20C was selected by PEG Bandwidth to complement extensive, 12-state fiber network because of its ability to deliver unmatched capacity throughout the backhaul network at a low total cost of ownership (TCO).
"The capacity needs of the U.S. marketplace are changing as 4G/LTE (News - Alert) usage increases," said Christopher Pickard, chief technology officer of PEG Bandwidth, in a statement.
Pickard said that Ceragon's FibeAir IP-20C offers the customers a broad network of seamlessly integrated, high capacity backhaul solutions which can suit the growing needs of the company’s carrier customers, and help to retain competitive edge.
"Receiving these first orders for FibeAir IP-20C just weeks after its launch is testament to the game-changing nature of the product," said Ira Palti, president and CEO of Ceragon Networks (News - Alert).
Palti said that in addition, having the orders come from a company as successful and focused on innovation as PEG Bandwidth speaks even further to how the FibeAir IP-20C can transform the backhaul and fronthaul process.
“We believe that the FibeAir IP-20C, together with our upcoming range of next-generation solutions will enable us to extend our market share and assert our clear technological advantage over our competitors," said Palti.
"We are delighted that PEG is Ceragon's first customer to deploy our new FibeAir IP-20C and are confident that this is a good indicator of the excellent fit that this product will have in the North American market," said Charles (Chuck) Meyo, president of Ceragon North America.
