Ceragon Networks First to Boost Long-Haul Microwave to 1024 QAM
GovNET submits first orders for innovative Evolution Long-Haul solution
Wireless backhaul specialist Ceragon Networks Ltd. has added 1024 QAM modulation to its Evolution IP Long-Haul, making it the first in the industry to offer this long-haul innovation. 1024 QAM is now the most advanced modulation technology for microwave communications and boosts capacity by as much as 25% over the widely implemented 256 QAM.
GovNET, a specialized telecommunications carrier, is building the world's most advanced microwave network using a variety of advanced technology including 1024 QAM. GovNET has chosen Ceragon’s Evolution IP Long-Haul 1024 QAM solution to securely deliver mission-critical broadband traffic for government agencies in public safety, education and telemedicine sectors across US Western States. “We selected Ceragon because of their ability to supply high-capacity bandwidth in an aggressive timeframe. Their advanced technology and experience in deploying large projects made them a natural microwave partner for our rapidly-growing network,” said Patrick Barringer, CEO at GovNET Inc.
“Microwave capacity requirements continue to increase unabated,” explained Eyal Assa, EVP and General Manager of Ceragon Networks’ Long-Haul Solutions Group. “We are committed long-term to developing innovative solutions, like 1024 QAM, to help our customers stay at the forefront of technology. This is another technology leap with an easy-to-implement capacity boost for microwave applications.”
Ceragon supports 9 levels of modulation ensuring a robust and reliable solution for any network and capacity needs, under any weather conditions. QAM is used extensively as a modulation scheme for digital telecommunications. It conveys data by changing aspects of the carrier signal. QAM modulation techniques carry information in both the amplitude and phase of the waveform in a single carrier.
