Center will enable oil and gas resources team to broaden market presence in the North Sea and beyond to global onshore/offshore installations

PARAMUS, New Jersey, May 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –

Ceragon Networks Ltd.
[http://www.ceragon.com/?utm_source=mcel_pr&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=mcel ], (NASDAQ:
CRNT), the #1 wireless hauling specialist, today opened its new competence center in
Bergen, Norway, which will be committed to boosting the company’s operations serving the
Oil and Gas market. The center will spearhead Ceragon’s research, sales, support and
strategic efforts to the market, as the company continues to expand its onshore and
offshore capabilities and offering worldwide.

Ceragon’s wireless hauling solutions and turnkey project capabilities allow drilling
and exploration companies to build and maintain high-speed communication links between
control centers and offshore rigs and vessels, making integrated operations an affordable
reality. For oil and gas firms, this means continued connectivity between onshore and
offshore locations with much higher capacity and lower latency than satellite solutions
and a far lower deployment cost than fiber cables.

Ceragon solutions for the Oil and Gas market include its range of high-power Evolution
long-haul systems as well as the PointLink, a unique microwave antenna designed
specifically for moving platforms, drilling rigs and floating production, storage, and
offload ships (FPSOs). PointLink employs gyro-stabilized antennas which keep constant
track and perfect alignment with their counterparts on offshore vessels and on land-based
facilities.

“We are extremely proud to open the competence center in Bergen, and have high
expectations from this outstanding and professional team,” said Ira Palti, Ceragon
Network’s President and CEO. “We have a unique product offering for the market, of
marine-grade microwave, while our Oil and Gas team brings a vast experience gained over
decades of serving some of the largest players in the Oil and Gas market. We are confident
that through the new center of competence we will bring more value to our existing
customers and continue expanding our business around the world.”

“By establishing the new competence center for Oil and Gas in Norway, Ceragon
reaffirms its commitment to this important market,” said Arild Fotland, head of Ceragon’s
Oil and Gas division. “With Oil and Gas exploration expanding into deeper waters and with
environmental and safety regulations heightening, onshore/offshore communications are more
important and challenging than ever. The team in Bergen will continue to serve Ceragon’s
large customer base in the North Sea, while increasing our footprint in other regions.”
