As part of Cellular One’s service expansion into the Navajo Nation, the carrier has placed a follow-on order to Ceragon Networks to enable flexible data and voice services to new subscribers.
Ceragon Networks says the deal was valued at more than $1 million, and includes future-proof network design.
“Taking advantage of Ceragon’s wireless backhaul solutions, we are able to achieve rapid deployment, making our network operational in a very short time,” said Richard Watkins, COO of Cellular One, in a statement. “Ceragon’s future-proof, high-capacity solutions will enable us to further enhance the quality of the services we offer and bring our residential and business customers greatly expanded opportunities for economic and social development.”
In November 2007, Cellular One announced a partnership with Conterra Ultra Broadband and the Navajo Nation to deliver the largest broadband wireless data transport network across tribal lands. Watkins said the partnership will permit the Navajo Nation to reach the next level telecommunications.
With its most recent announcement, Cellular One says Ceragon Networks solution will help it continue to provide advanced digital broadband services to a region that lacked voice and high speed communication access points.
