Digitel picks Ceragon for 2G/3G backhaul expansion

15 Jun 2010

Digitel Mobile Philippines (Sun Cellular) has selected wireless backhaul solutions provider Ceragon Networks to expand and upgrade its 2G/3G metro network. Via a USD9 million order Ceragon will upgrade the operator’s Manila-Cebu Alternative Backbone to deliver 3G services to the southern part of the country employing native IP over long-haul microwave technology, Moreover, its North Luzon Backbone Expansion project will be able to bring additional 2G service capacity to the north, it said. Both projects are part of Digitel’s Ceragon-enabled migration to an all-IP Ethernet backhaul network. Digitel has been using Ceragon for its backhaul network requirements since 2005 and has purchased a mix of traditional TDM and IP-based systems, including the TDM-based FibeAir 3200T, a high-capacity wireless system; the TDM-based FibeAir 1500R, high-capacity SDH/SONET wireless system; and the FibeAir IP-10, which combines IP and TDM networking for risk-free migration to IP.
