PEG Bandwidth has chosen Ceragon (News - Alert) Networks’ FibeAir IP-20C to complement its extensive, 12-state fiber network.
Ceragon has already received initial orders for the new generation of multi-core, packet radio solutions and the actual deployment will include dozens of FibeAir IP-20C links throughout the United States.
PEG Bandwidth provides customized cell site backhaul networks for wireless carriers. The company chose FibeAir IP-20C as it can deliver high capacity throughout the backhaul network at a low total cost of ownership (TCO).
PEG Bandwidth aims to serve the lower-tiered and rural markets, and customizes cell site backhaul networks for major wireless carriers.
It aggregates mission critical backhaul traffic across multiple networks and provides a seamless end-to-end connectivity solution to its customers.
“Ceragon's FibeAir IP-20C enables us to offer our customers a broad network of seamlessly integrated, high capacity backhaul solutions which can suit the growing needs of our carrier customers, and help us to retain our competitive edge,” said Christopher Pickard, chief technology officer of PEG Bandwidth.
Ceragon Networks (News - Alert) claims FibeAir IP-20C is the only microwave radio to offer a virtual-fiber solution in licensed bands. Featuring a breakthrough multi-core technology, the IP-20C also boosts spectral efficiency to address the capacity requirements of advanced HetNet backhaul and fronthaul scenarios.
"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.
Ceragon Networks provides wireless backhaul solutions that enable mobile operators and other wired/wireless service providers to deliver 2G/3G, 4G/LTE (News - Alert) and other broadband services to their subscribers.
The company was in news last week for reporting revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 at $106.8 million.
