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.”

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
