Ceragon Networks (News - Alert) Ltd. recently announced it has been able to retain its position as the world's largest long-haul wireless backhaul supplier for the second consecutive quarter.
Ceragon, which enjoys an impressive 26-percent share of the world's market, has been able to successfully increase and grow its long-haul business noticeably from 20 percent in Q4 2011. This data was obtained from a topical microwave point-to-point report from Sky Light Research, an independent research firm dealing in wireless last mile WAN technologies.
Sky Light Research's Microwave Radio Point-to-Point Market Share Report processes commercial unit shipments and manufacturer income from direct and indirect sales channels.
Ceragon Networks delivers versatile and affordable wireless backhaul solutions to mobile operators and other wired/wireless service providers to deliver 2G/3G, 4G/LTE (News - Alert) and other broadband services to its subscribers. Dealing primary with microwave technology to transfer voice and data traffic, the company can not only expand bandwidth efficiency, but deliver more capacity over longer distances.
More than 430 service providers in over 130 countries deploy Ceragon’s solutions.
"Ceragon is committed to making broadband more accessible for all, and to helping populations to bridge the digital divide," said Ira Palti, president and CEO at Ceragon Networks. "Africa is a key market for our long haul solutions, and we want to take this opportunity to thank our customers for continuing to partner with Ceragon as they build out their wireless networks."
"In many regions around the world, and Africa in particular, national telecom backbone networks rely on high-capacity long-haul microwave links," said Emmy Johnson, principal nalyst and founder of Sky Light Research. "This makes long-haul backhaul technology a strategic element in both fixed and mobile operators' planning processes, often choosing a vendor based on strategic offerings and benefits rather than just bottom line metrics. The emergence of Ceragon as a leading long haul wireless backhaul supplier demonstrates how Ceragon's specialist approach combined with its breadth of products is working and winning deals with customers."
Ceragon also announced the opening of their new offices Dakar, Senegal, highlighting the company’s commitment to the development of the telecoms infrastructure in West Africa.
