Orange Niger Selects Ceragon to Modernize the Backbone of its Network in Support of Aggressive 4G Deployment
LITTLE FALLS, N.J., Aug. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Little Falls, New Jersey, August 3, 2020 - Ceragon Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ: CRNT), the #1 wireless hauling specialist, announced today that Orange Niger, the second largest mobile operator in Niger, has selected its wireless backhaul solutions and services to modernize its nationwide backbone network to 4G. In this multi-million-dollar project, Ceragon will enable Orange Niger to leapfrog to 4G, starting with the capital city of Niamey and expanding to other major cities to secure over 1 million 4G subscribers by the end of 2020.
To deliver on its vision of building digital Africa, Orange Niger requires a high power, scalable and ultra-reliable wireless backbone network which delivers 4Gbps backbone capacity to meet 4G services and experiences for subscribers. By selecting Ceragon's IP-20 platform, Orange Niger is able to double its backbone capacity, utilizing new and wider regulatory spectrum allocations of 112MHz. The combination of ultra-high power radios, and Ceragon's wide channel multicore technology with Advanced Space Diversity techniques, allows Orange Niger to achieve the 4G capacity and coverage it needs, using 50% less hardware, with smaller and fewer antennas.
"We are pleased to partner with Ceragon," said Souleymane Diallo, CEO of Orange Niger.
