PARAMUS, New Jersey, August 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

  

Ceragon Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ: CRNT), the #1 high-capacity wireless hauling specialist today announced that it has been selected by Andired, Colombia's leading expert service provider in rural connectivity projects, to provide high-capacity backhaul solutions as part of a new nationwide broadband network deployment. Andired invested several million dollars in this new network deployment, which will span over 1,500 km and support voice and data services with capacities ranging from 500Mbps to 3.5Gbps.

Andired Colombia is a consortium comprising Anditel S.A.S, Furel S.A., Electricas de Medellin - Comercial S.A. - Edemco, and Accion S.A. Andired has won the broadband expansion tender launched by Colombia's Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunication (Mintic) in December 2013. The deployment is expected to complete in 2015. The network will cover 27 municipalities in the Orinoquia, Amazonia and Pacifico regions, which are not included in Colombia's National Fiber Optic Project.

The high-capacity backbone network will be based on Ceragon's cutting-edge IP-20 product line and will be operated by Andired for ten years. "This is a project of national importance as it will help to improve the quality of life for Colombians living in rural regions and enable future 4G services across the service territory," said Henry Zambrano, General Manager of Andired. "We chose Ceragon's IP-20 product line based on its technical performance, energy savings features and compact design."

"We are excited to be selected to provide our products and expertise in support of such a strategic project," said Ira Palti, President and CEO of Ceragon.
