Ceragon Multi-Core Radio Technology Sets a New Standard in Microwave Transmission to Deliver Multi-Gbps Anywhere

PARAMUS, New Jersey, December 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

- The revolutionary FibeAir® IP-20C solution combines multi-core radio, 2048 QAM modulation and line-of-sight MIMO in a compact, all-outdoor design

Ceragon Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ: CRNT), the #1 wireless backhaul specialist, announced today the launch of its new generation of packet radio solutions, FibeAir IP-20C.  Striving to meet the unique demands of 4G/LTE-A networks and provide mobile operators with long-term network planning peace of mind, FibeAir IP-20C is breaking the traditional capacity barriers,  and is the only microwave radio to offer a virtual fiber solution in licensed bands. FibeAir IP-20C features a breakthrough multi-core technology that employs a parallel radio processing engine to double the link performance. This allows FibeAir IP-20C to deliver multi-Gbps capacity on a single frequency channel - setting a new standard for efficient spectrum usage and significantly improving operators' total cost of ownership (TCO). By employing line-of-sight (LoS) 4X4 MIMO, operators can even reach capacities that quadruple those of existing solutions, at half the form-factor.

Ceragon's FibeAir IP-20C boosts spectral efficiency to meet the increasingly demanding capacity requirements of advanced HetNet backhaul and fronthaul scenarios. Built around Ceragon's own baseband modem and RFIC technologies, it is the next leap in Ceragon's Holistic HetNet Hauling (3H) vision which redefines wireless connectivity in heterogeneous networks. Currently in trials at selected customers, the FibeAir IP-20C is scheduled to be released for general availability in Q1 2013.

"With wireless capacity requirements on the increase, traditional backhaul models are no longer sustainable," says Ron Kline, Principal Analyst Network Infrastructure, Ovum. "Operators need to significantly increase capacity without sacrificing profitability. A microwave equipment vendor that can offer a true capacity leap, while breaking the linearity of cost and capacity, can gain meaningful market differentiation."

 "Ceragon again sets a new bar for the industry with our game-changing products," said Ira Palti, Ceragon's President and CEO.  "We strive every day to challenge the capacity barriers, in order to help our customers deliver gigabits of data anywhere in their network. Using our in-house chip sets and innovative system designs, we are pushing the envelope of physics time and again, creating the best microwave products for any channel bandwidth, any capacity, any protocol and any network architecture."

FibeAir IP-20C is easily adaptable for any deployment scenario with features including:

  • Highly integrated, multi-core radio in a compact form factor
  • Guaranteed 1Gbps in a single 28MHz/30MHz channel
  • Guaranteed 2Gbps radio throughput in a single 56/60MHz channel
  • Further capacity increase using 80MHz channels as recently approved by the FCC
  • Parallel radio processing engine to double performance
  • Unique 4X4 LoS MIMO
  • 2048 QAM modulation
  • Ultra-low latency
  • Green design - low power consumption
  • Simple to install, quick to deploy

Implementing Ceragon's 3H Vision

FibeAir IP-20C is the first implementation of Ceragon's Holistic HetNet Hauling (3H) vision. The 3H approach combines technologies, equipment and services to address the disruptive change in mobile network paradigms, and their evolution towards data-driven, 4G/LTE-A HetNets (heterogeneous networks). 3H sets out how operators can provide seamless, high-capacity, easy-to-deploy hauling for their HetNet architectures - from traditional backhaul environments connecting base stations to aggregation points; through the combination of macro cell and small cell topologies and RAN-sharing concepts; to new fronthaul scenarios connecting remote radio heads with cloud-based digital units.

Sometimes I write a blog just to formulate and organize a point of view, and I think it’s time that I pull together the bounty of excellent information about Machine Learning. This is a topic with which business leaders must become comfortable, especially tomorrow’s business leaders (tip for my next semester University of San Francisco business students!). Machine learning is a key capability that will help organizations drive optimization and monetization opportunities, and there have been some...
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...

Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year. In Gartner’s recent hype cycle for emerging technologies, blockchain is approaching the peak. It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations?

For example, using spot instances and co...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way.

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the abili...
