FibeAir® IP-10Q delivers a high-density, 4 Gbps wireless backhaul solution for Ethernet and IP/MPLS aggregation networks

Paramus, New Jersey, October 24, 2011 Ceragon Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ: CRNT), the premier wireless backhaul specialist, today announced the release of FibeAir® IP-10Q, a high-density, wireless backhaul solution optimized for Ethernet & IP/MPLS aggregation networks. Designed to provide up to 4 Gbps of traffic, and support up to four carriers in a single rack unit, the high-density FibeAir IP-10Q enables operators to deliver high network availability, low latency and low jitter. FibeAir IP-10Q will be unveiled at 4G World in Chicago on October 24-27 at Ceragon’s booth #924. (link to brochure when available).

Built for 3G, 4G/LTE, converged and private networks, FibeAir IP-10Q features industry advanced traffic optimization technologies, enabling an ultra-high capacity, flexible and cost-optimized wireless packet backhaul solution. Its innovative frame cut-through technology also provides extremely low latency for delay-sensitive applications, with up to 70% reduction in frame delay compared to other available solutions. The device enables operators to meet strict subscriber service level agreement (SLA) requirements through its no single point of failure (SPoF) design, and is optimized for migration from SONET/SDH aggregation networks to packet networks. This enables easy upgrade for legacy multi-carrier wireless systems with the flexibility of maintaining radio units, antennas and cabling.

“As 4G/LTE networks rollout intensifies, operators must be ready to deal with the oncoming flood of data across their entire network,” said Hagai Zyss, EVP and GM of
