Press release date: August 19, 2013
Deployment includes over 200 links throughout the state, providing vital connectivity in rural areas
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- 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."
