Ceragon Networks Ltd. has announced a new family of carrier-grade wireless Ethernet platforms that combine advanced IP and TDM networking for migrating traditional backhaul networks to IP.

The FibeAir IP-10 family features a powerful integrated Ethernet switch, optional stackable radios with TDM cross-connect for nodal site applications, advanced service management and Operation Administration & Maintenance (OAM) tools.

The family offers a wide capacity range of 10Mbps to 500Mbps over one radio carrier, using a single RF unit, across the entire licensed frequency spectrum – from 6GHz to 38GHz. The solution easily serves the capacity requirements of a single base-station as well as those of traffic-intensive hub sites and leaves ample headroom for future capacity enhancements. Advanced Adaptive Coding & Modulation (ACM) helps to maximize spectrum utilization and capacity over any given bandwidth – and under changing environmental conditions.

FibeAir IP-10 incorporates Ceragon’s Native2 concept to support native TDM and native Ethernet hybrid architecture – as well as all-IP and pseudowire architectures – requiring little or no external devices and allowing it to integrate smoothly with any network. The FibeAir IP-10 family builds Ceragon’s FibeAir IP-MAX solutions family which will continue to serve private network and other applications. FibeAir IP-10 solutions will be available in both Native2 and Native Ethernet variants.

First commercial release will be available during Q2 2008.
