Ceragon’s IP-20 Platform Selected for Large National Communication Project in Southeast Asia

Little Falls, New Jersey, October 10, 2017 – Ceragon Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ: CRNT), the #1 wireless backhaul specialist, today announced that it has received orders totaling more than $5 million for its IP-20 Platform and related professional services. This new customer is a wireless communications wholesaler in southeast Asia and Ceragon was chosen as the primary supplier of backhaul for the initial phase of this project in a remote island region in Southeast Asia. The majority of the equipment is expected to be delivered in Q1 2018.

With challenging terrain over mountains, rivers and sea, combined with very long distances that span across 420,000 Km2, the project requires substantial expertise for both the planning and deployment of the highest performance equipment and technology. Ceragon’s IP-20 Platform, with its unique multicore technology and high power radios, delivers the needed capacity with the least number of sites and the least amount of equipment, whilst maintaining headroom capacity for future services and network growth. Moreover, Ceragon’s proven experience and success in wireless backhaul roll-outs in similar terrains is of immense value.

As a wireless backhaul specialist, Ceragon is able to offer a significantly better total cost of ownership as compared to competitive proposals received from telecom generalists. In order to deliver the utmost efficient solution, Ceragon’s offering includes both its market-leading technology and its professional services and expertise in network design, network planning and rollout optimization. The combination of Ceragon’s products and services brings about a significant advantage in both operational efficiency and the ability to quickly roll-out support, connecting over 4.3 million residents and businesses across the island nation.

“We are thrilled to support such an imperative national initiative to develop and connect a large under-served region,” said Ira Palti, president and CEO of Ceragon. “We appreciate that investing in telecom infrastructure is a key and critical first step and we are proud to be able to supply our vast experience in such challenging terrains. Our wireless backhaul solutions and services allow the customer to quickly provide wholesale capacity for the country’s service providers, and do so at the lowest total cost of ownership.”
