A mobile operator in the Southern Cone region of Latin America has placed orders for Ceragon products and services valued at more than $8 million. This network upgrade project, which has been ongoing since early 2012, is based on Ceragon’s short-haul and long-haul solutions and will enable a range of 3G and future 4G services to millions of users across the Southern Cone. The project is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2013.
Capacity expansion is a key factor in this network upgrade project, as Latin America continues to experience a growing demand for broadband services. Ceragon’s FibeAir IP-10 and Evolution long-haul solutions will help connect new 3G sites while expanding the capacity of the network’s backbone.
“The expanded order for products and services from a premier operator is further validation of the vision we have for the Latin America region,” said Ira Palti, president and CEO of Ceragon Networks. “Increased backhaul density helps our customers deliver connectivity to tens of millions of users, sometimes in areas with no other options for broadband connectivity. Building on this established relationship, Ceragon continues to deepen its presence in the Southern Cone region of Latin America.”
