GovNET, a specialized telecommunications carrier, is building a microwave network using a variety of technology including 1024 QAM. GovNET has chosen Ceragon’s Evolution IP Long-Haul 1024 QAM solution to 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,” said Patrick Barringer, CEO at GovNET Inc.


“Microwave capacity requirements continue to increase unabated,” says 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.”


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.
