Ceragon’s FibeAir IP-20 Platform to become part of the Fujitsu end-to-end optical and wireless transport offering

Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. and Ceragon Networks Ltd., the wireless backhaul specialist, have signed a reseller agreement for Fujitsu to sell Ceragon’s wireless backhaul solutions portfolio.

This agreement expands Fujitsu’s end-to-end wireless networking portfolio to include the Ceragon FibeAir IP-20 microwave and millimeter wave solutions. The Ceragon platform will enhance Fujitsu’s multivendor wireless backhaul solutions portfolio with its versatility, spectral efficiency, bandwidth capacity, low energy consumption and proven reliability.

Fujitsu will combine its systems integration services with Ceragon’s wireless backhaul products to offer comprehensive turnkey solutions including design, build, operations and maintenance to North American service providers.

Additionally, the Ceragon FibeAir IP-20 platform is a strategic fit for the multivendor solutions offered through Fujitsu’s Network Modernization (NetMod) programs to replace legacy or discontinued equipment. Fujitsu market-leading NetMod services include digital cross-connect systems (DCS), SONET, operation support systems (OSS) and microwave replacement. NetMod increases network reliability, capacity and performance, lowers the total cost of ownership and readies the network for next generation services.

“By leveraging Fujitsu’s extensive services portfolio along with Ceragon’s wireless backhaul solutions, we can bring our customers a formidable offer to densify, upgrade, and transform their networks,” said Greg Manganello, SVP and head of services at Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc.

“This is a strategic partnership for Ceragon, as it allows us to further expand our North American footprint and reach a wider range of customers,” said Ira Palti, president and CEO of Ceragon. “By integrating our IP-20 Platform solutions into its solutions portfolio, Fujitsu is now able to bring wireless backhaul solutions where they best resolve the unique challenges of North American service providers addressing capacity, reach, availability and site acquisition challenges.
