The solution it is implementing, from Ceragon, includes a migration-ready system termed FibeAir IP-10 that supports TDM technology and Ethernet over a single platform. Taking advantage of Ceragon’s pay-as-you-grow concept, Tata will also be able upgrade its wireless backhaul capacity in the future and reach up to 500Mbps per radio channel.

“We have selected Ceragon’s microwave solutions to provide high-capacity backhaul for our CDMA network. Once the solution is deployed, Tata Teleservices will be able to offer a wide range of data and multimedia applications on top of its voice centric package,” said A G Rao, chief technology officer, Tata Teleservices Limited.

“As we advance towards Next Generation Network and 3G services, wireless solutions from Ceragon will provide flexible and scalable answers for cost effective, future-proof high-capacity backhaul connectivity. Our long term agreement with Ceragon will enable us to roll out robust networks, and ensure our valued customers the best quality service today and for years to come.”
