PARAMUS, N.J. -- Ceragon Networks Ltd. , CRNT +1.91% , the #1 wireless hauling specialist, announced today a top four US wireless carrier customers has placed a $4 million follow-on order with Ceragon to continue its network modernization rollout. The planned deployments will include hundreds of wireless backhaul links throughout the US. Ceragon has been a supplier to this tier 1 US carrier since 2010 and the follow-on order will bring Ceragon's installed base within the carrier to over 2,000 high-capacity microwave links.
As consumer demand for bandwidth grows exponentially and shows little signs of slowing, US carriers continue to make investments to expand their 4G/LTE coverage and upgrade existing infrastructure. According to a recent Heavy Reading report, the number of 4G/LTE cell sites in the US will almost triple itself from 2013 to 2017.
"Ceragon's solutions are of growing interest to US wireless carriers due to the flexibility and speed of deployment that we offer," said Ira Palti, Ceragon Network's President and CEO. "With Ceragon, carriers can rapidly deploy links in regions that need additional connectivity alternatives or the ability to expand into rural markets. An ongoing investment in wireless backhaul ensures a carrier is able to provide increased capacity and improve the network Quality of Service and reliability that their customers demand."
