ECI Telecom and Ceragon Partner on Wireless Backhaul

ECI Telecom and Ceragon Networks announced a partnership to provide a multi-service transport radio solution for carriers. The joint multi-service transport radio combines ECI's XDM and Broad-Gate Multi-Service Provisioning Platforms (MSPP) with Ceragon's FibeAir IP & SDH microwave technology.

The partnership, which strengthens the long-term cooperation between the two market-leading companies, addresses the demand for an end-to-end integrated wireline and wireless backhaul solution, and offers reduced time-to-market, improved manageability and lower integration costs.

The companies said their integrated multi-service transport radio solution provides a complete wireless backhaul solution for today's 2G/3G networks, while allowing for a smooth migration to next-generation all-IP Radio Access Network (RAN) and wireless Ethernet. This migration is supported by Ceragon's Adaptive Modulation and native Ethernet capabilities, and by ECI's Integrated TDM, ATM and IP/MPLS capabilities.http://www.ceragon.comhttp://www.ecitele.com
