Little Falls, New Jersey, June 28, 2017 – Ceragon Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ: CRNT), the #1 wireless backhaul specialist, today announced that, during Q2, it has received orders totaling more than $7 million for its IP-20 Platform and related services from a tier 1 mobile operator in the Southern Cone of South America. After a major 4G network rollout in 2015 and 2016, this long-standing customer has placed orders totaling over $12 million during the first half of 2017 to increase coverage and capacity across its large multi-country network.
The tier 1 operator requires a wireless backhaul solution capable of delivering ultra-high capacity that is fast to deploy and utilizes less real-estate and spectrum resources to support the growing need for capacity to cell sites. This additional coverage and capacity is required in order to deliver a high-quality experience to subscribers, reduce churn rates and support an aggressive growth strategy through new subscriber acquisition.
With these recent orders, the operator expands its use of the Ceragon IP-20 Platform across its multi-country, large scale 4G network to continuously deliver innovative, high-performance subscriber experiences through a high-capacity, scalable, and highly- reliable network. The operator also relies on Ceragon’s fast roll out and integration services to ensure the fastest time to market, operational efficiency and customer satisfaction.
“Our customers are valued partners,” said Ira Palti, president and CEO of Ceragon. “We continue to support the customer in fulfilling its long-term plans to add subscribers, reduce churn and increase revenues. It gives us great satisfaction and pride to see that so many of our long-term customers have standardized on our products.”
