PETAH TIKVA and TEL AVIV, Israel -- ECI Telecom Ltd., a global provider of networking infrastructure solutions, and Ceragon Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: CRNT), a leading provider of high-capacity wireless backhaul solutions, today announced a partnership to provide a joint multi-service transport radio solution for carriers. The partnership, which strengthens the long-term cooperation between the two market-leading companies, addresses the demand for an end-to-end integrated wireline and wireless backhaul solution, and offers reduced time-to-market, improved manageability and lower integration costs.

By expanding its offering with microwave radio, ECI meets customer requirements for high-capacity and cost-effective backhaul solutions and simplifies the deployment of future backhaul networks. Today's variety of mobile technologies and standards increase the complexity of these backhaul networks. The rising demand for wireless traffic, compounded by the lack of wireline infrastructure, the high cost of leased lines and time to market issues, requires a high-capacity backhaul solution that guarantees support for future needs.

"Modern microwave with both TDM and high speed packet capabilities is necessary for mobile backhaul and other applications, so this partnership makes clear sense to bring together two leading companies in their respective fields," said Michael Howard, Principal Analyst and Co-founder of Infonetics Research. "ECI expands its transport offering with microwave capabilities, Ceragon extends its sales outreach, and their customers will benefit."
