Ceragon expands high-capacity trunk network in Dominican Republic

Ceragon Networks, which provides high-capacity, LTE-ready wireless backhaul solutions, today announced that Codetel, a fixed/mobile operator in the Dominican Republic is expanding its communications network using Ceragon equipment. Codetel, a subsidiary of America Movil, will implement Ceragon's FibeAir 3200T long-haul trunk solution to upgrade and replace parts of its existing fixed and mobile backbone network. Sales, installation and project management for this project were handled by TeleNetworks Broadband Solutions. The deal is valued at over US$3 million in revenue for Ceragon.


FibeAir 3200T provides high-capacity connectivity using multiple STM-1, OC-3, FE or GbE, and enables the deployment of voice and data services for rapidly growing networks. Codetel will utilise the solution in a variety of N+1 configurations, including the aggregation of 16 OC-3 into a single, ultra-high capacity logical channel. With FibeAir 3200T, which utilises Ceragon's high-power RF unit (RFU-HP) Codetel benefits from superior radio performance enabling it to reach longer distances without increasing antenna size. Additionally, the system includes two receivers and one transmitter in each RF unit giving it a built-in diversity capability which further increases the reliability of the link.


"We are responding to the need for additional data capacity and are moving quickly to upgrade and expand our backbone network," said Eng Juan Mota, Network Planning and Engineering Director at Codetel. "The FibeAir 3200T features excellent flexibility and modularity. This allows us to implement a simple upgrade concept and replace legacy equipment under live traffic."


* The Dominican Telephony Company provides the Dominican Republic with services including wireline, wireless, long distance, Internet and data, with its brands Codetel and Claro. Based in Santo Domingo and in service since 1930, Codetel is an America Movil Group subsidiary, the latter providing wireless services in Latin America with operations in several countries within the American Continent.
