PARAMUS, N.J., Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Ceragon Networks Ltd.
(NASDAQ:CRNT), the #1 wireless hauling specialist, today announced that it
will host live demonstrations of its advanced, ultra-high capacity SDN-ready
IP-20 platform at Mobile World Congress 2014, in Barcelona, Spain. The
demonstrations will take place in Ceragon's booth in Hall 5, stand #5G61 from
February 24-27.

Operators today must meet the increasing demand for network capacity,
scalability, availability and coverage in a way that is both cost effective
and adaptable to future networks evolution. Through these demonstrations,
Ceragon will show how SDN (software-defined networking), NFV (network
functions virtualization) and C-RAN fronthaul will push the creation of
successful new business models and cloud-based network topologies.

Ceragon will take attendees on a journey of the future of wireless hauling
through the following live demonstrations:

  oNetwork Function Virtualization (NFV): NFV is about virtualizing network
    functions to create new services. Ceragon's IP-20's integrated NFV card
    enables independent software applications to run on the same
    general-purpose hardware. In this demonstration, Ceragon will present two
    software applications, payload-deduplication and open source vSwitch, to
    demonstrate virtualized network functions over a high-capacity radio link.
  oSoftware Defined Networking (SDN): As backhaul networks continue to
    evolve, performance optimization will shift from a link-by-link level, to
    a complete network level. At MWC 2014 Ceragon will demonstrate the future
    of hauling with SDN. This will be exhibited by enforcing fairness in a
    network sharing scenario.
  oWireless fronthaul with CPRI: Distributed macro cells using
    remote-radio-heads can be ideal for both densely populated areas as well
    as for rural applications. Employing CPRI Option 3, this demo features an
    eNodeB connected to remote radio heads (RRHs) using wireless fronthaul.
    Featuring its multi-core FibeAir IP-20C, Ceragon will demonstrate a
    revolutionary approach for meeting fronthaul data-rates in 6-42GHz
    licensed frequency bands, using a single wireless radio link with high
    availability and over long distances. In doing so, Ceragon proves an
    effective business case for wireless fronthaul.

Ceragon's IP-20 is a service-centric, software-defined wireless platform
containing a rich product line for backhaul and fronthaul applications. The
IP-20 platform provides ultra-high capacities, supports any radio transmission
technology mix, any network topology and any configuration. IP-20 products are
already deployed by some of the world's leading carriers carrying live 3G and
4G/LTE traffic to millions of subscribers. The SDN-ready platform is built
around a powerful software-defined engine and provides a common, programmable
operating system for all of Ceragon's next-generation FibeAir® and Evolution
products. The operating system (CeraOs) implemented across the entire IP-20
product series, creates a unified, simple-to-operate-and-manage approach for
building, expanding and maintaining wireless backhaul and fronthaul networks.
