Ceragon Networks'(R) FibeAir(R) Radio Systems Featuring XPIC Solution are Gaining Customer Recognition for Doubling Channel Capacity.
TEL AVIV, Israel, December 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Ceragon Networks Ltd. , http://www.ceragon.com/, a global provider of high-capacity broadband wireless systems, today announced that the company has successfully completed installations of FibeAir radio systems featuring cross-pole interference cancellation (XPIC), for cellular operators in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Africa, with excellent customer feedback. Using Ceragon's FibeAir 1500P wireless systems with integrated XPIC functionality, these operators have been able to double capacity in the same frequency channel, enabling them to benefit from increased spectral efficiency, expand their service range, and significantly improve their ROI.
"The rapidly growing number of both subscribers and voice and data rich applications in our networks creates an ever-increasing demand for capacity and requires a more efficient use of our spectrum," said Mr. Alexander Dorofiy, Deputy Chief Technical Officer KyivStar, Ukraine's leading national mobile operator. "Ceragon's FibeAir Family with XPIC addresses this critical issue by providing increased capacity on the same single channel, thereby broadening the scope of our services, at lower cost."
Ceragon's FibeAir family of radios, operating in co-channel dual polarization (CCDP) mode using the XPIC algorithm, enables two STM-1/OC-3 carriers to be transmitted over a single 28 MHz channel, using vertical and horizontal polarization. Ceragon's wireless systems with integrated XPIC functionality are designed to meet the growing demand of telecommunication operators for higher-capacity connectivity, more efficient spectrum utilization of increasingly complex networks, and reduced deployment and maintenance costs.
"As the need for wireless capacity continues to increase worldwide, Ceragon's FibeAir radio systems incorporating XPIC address this critical need by enabling double capacity in the same spectrum bandwidth," said Ira Palti, President and CEO, Ceragon Networks Ltd. "We continue to lead the high capacity wireless market with this type of innovation. We believe we are the first vendor to provide working XPIC solutions in split-mount configurations, and XPIC has already been deployed for commercial networks in several countries throughout the world."
Ceragon's FibeAir radio systems use state-of-the-art technology for ultra-high capacity voice, data, and video transmission, and deliver ultra-high capacities of up to 622 Mbps due to the XPIC mechanism. FibeAir supports protected (hot standby), space or frequency diversity and East-West configurations in the same indoor unit, as well as point-to-point, ring, star, and cascaded chain topologies.
