Ceragon and TTSL ink expanded backhaul support agreement

9 Jun 2009

Israeli broadband wireless networking systems supplier Ceragon Networks has signed a second agreement with Indian mobile operator Tata Teleservices (TTSL) to support the rollout of GSM services. This latest deal will see Ceragon provide its FibeAir 1500R wireless SDH and FibeAir IP-10 solutions that support native TDM, Native2 (hybrid TDM/Ethernet) and native Ethernet over a single platform in seven circles, including Delhi. The new deal is part of a long-term supply agreement between the two companies, signed in mid-2008, under which Ceragon has already deployed high capacity backhaul equipment in three circles. Commenting on the recent agreement Mr A G Rao, president and chief technology officer at TTSL, said: ‘We found that Ceragon’s systems offer a variety of benefits including advanced IP capabilities and a nodal solution with integrated cross-connect. These features fit our network expansion strategy perfectly and will also serve to support our network evolution towards 3G.’
