TEL AVIV, Israel, April 1, 2009 - Ceragon Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: CRNT), a
leading provider of high-capacity LTE-ready wireless backhaul solutions, today announced that a
leading North American wireless communications carrier, has selected its advanced wireless
Ethernet solutions. Ceragon’s FibeAir® IP-10 systems in combination with Ceragon’s High Power
RF units will be deployed by the carrier to provide long-haul transport for high-speed data and
voice services. This deployment will support the carrier’s geographical expansion and network
capacity enhancement. Initial orders are valued at over US$6 million, of which $5 million has
been recorded as revenue.
Ceragon was selected for this important build due to its ability to deliver a high
performance IP-based solution that supports multiple radio configurations. With superior system
gain, Ceragon can provide its new customer the ability to extend its network reach while using
smaller antennas. This particular feature alone helps achieve significant cost savings without
compromising the quality of the service.

into a new and prestigious customer” said Ira Palti, President and CEO of Ceragon. “The decision
to choose our solutions for its high-speed, long haul IP network is a ringing endorsement of our

and Native2 (hybrid) TDM/Ethernet over a single platform. The combination with Ceragon’s
advanced high power RF unit, the FibeAir RFU-HP, provides a unique solution for long haul IP
and TDM applications. The solution utilizes advanced Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) for
unmatched link optimization, ensuring the highest available capacities under any weather
conditions. The solution can be deployed in both split-mount and all indoor configurations.
