Ceragon Deploys FirstNet-Ready Public Safety Network throughout Nebraska

connectivity in rural areas
ANAHEIM, Calif., Aug. 19, 2013
ANAHEIM, Calif., Aug. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --APCO 2013 --Ceragon Networks
Ltd. (NASDAQ: CRNT), the #1 wireless backhaul specialist, today announced that
it has received orders for the new Nebraska Regional Interoperability Network
(NRIN). The network, which is managed by Communication Services Inc. (CSI),
includes approximately 200 links of Ceragon's FirstNet-ready FibeAir solutions
providing critically-needed connectivity and improved capacity for First
Responders, particularly in the vast rural areas of Nebraska, the 9th
least-densely populated state of the United States.
The NRIN will be using new and existing resources to create a statewide
wireless communication system for a variety of state public safety agencies.
The system will connect the public safety answering points (PSAPs) and 911
centers, enabling the smooth and efficient interoperability of the separate
first responder networks. The network will also be used by the Public Power
Districts. In the future, local public safety agencies may be able to
subscribe to the system.
"We have been deploying Ceragon solutions in our new public safety network
since 2011 and their reliability and resilience has been proven repeatedly,"
said Tim Hofbauer, Director of Columbus and Platte County Emergency
Management, Nebraska. "Ceragon's FirstNet-ready solutions have ensured that
our first responders have the network capacity, connectivity and
agency-interoperability they need in order to do their jobs and save lives."
"We are committed to the North American market and are proud to play an
integral part in the NRIN's public safety network," said Ira Palti, President
and CEO of Ceragon Networks. "Our recently launched platforms for the North
American market are designed specifically to meet the demanding requirements
of the network operators in this important region."
"The public safety community is moving more and more towards LTE-based
networks, and as a result, organizations are insisting upon high-capacity,
high-power and high-resilience solutions," said Chuck Meyo, President of
Ceragon North America. "The need to ensure disaster recovery-standard
operational capabilities is an absolute priority and Ceragon solutions are
ideally suited for this."
