"The global trends driving our business continue to strengthen," said Ira Palti, President and CEO of Ceragon. "Q2 revenues exceeded expectations, setting another new record. Q2 results reflected the growth in the Asia Pacific region as well as excellent demand from our OEM customers. Our book-to-bill ratio for the quarter continues to be above one, which puts us on track to grow more than 35% in 2008. We are also encouraged by the increasing interest in our IP solutions, which is building faster that we expected. We are working on numerous opportunities, including both migration to IP and new IP-based networks." http://www.ceragon.com
