PARAMUS, N.J. -- Ceragon Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ: CRNT), the #1 wireless backhaul specialist, today announced follow-on orders of more than $6.5 million USD with Mozambique Cellular (mcel) to expand the carrier’s microwave network, first established in 2010. Ceragon is extending mcel’s backbone network, based on Ceragon technology, from Beira in central Mozambique to Nampula in the north of the country, as well as upgrading access links nationwide, providing the only broadband connection available for millions of Mozambicans.

The network expansion will bring improved capacity, and advanced services delivery to millions of mcel users. The high capacity solutions, which are based on Ceragon’s Evolution IP Long Haul and FibeAir IP-10, enable mcel to provide improved redundancy, increase network capacity, and improve their subscribers’ quality of experience (QoE).

Ceragon will be showcasing the solutions deployed by mcel along with a range of its other high capacity solutions at AfricaCom, booth # F07.

mcel is Mozambique’s leading mobile operator with over 4.5 million customers. According to a recent industry report, Mozambique is one of the world’s fastest and most consistently growing economies, and is one of the highest growth potential telecom markets in Africa.

“Over the past two years Ceragon’s backbone network has successfully served the requirements of our market throughout Mozambique,” said Mohamed Mussa, Technical Director of mcel. “As a result of our expanding customer base and its increasing dependency on mobile, we looked for a way to expand our network again. We knew that with Ceragon we could meet today’s demand and prepare for the future as 4G/LTE becomes more widely available.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
