Ceragon, which manages offices in Cameroon, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, and South Africa, announced on June 14 that, with a 26 per cent share of the global long-haul market in Q1 2012, the company had retained its title as the world’s largest long-haul wireless backhaul supplier.

Ceragon Networks president & CEO Ira Palti stated, “Africa is a key market for our long haul solutions, and we want to take this opportunity to thank our customers for continuing to partner with Ceragon as they build out their wireless networks.”

The result came from a recent microwave point-to-point report made by the independent research firm, Sky Light Research.

Sky Light Research principal analyst and founder Emmy Johnson noted, “In many regions around the world, and Africa in particular, national telecom backbone networks rely on high-capacity long-haul microwave links.  This makes long-haul backhaul technology a strategic element in both fixed and mobile operators’ planning processes.”
