The orders include $740k for delivery in 2021, which represents an increase of c. 50% over the previous expectations of the customer. The remaining $1.26m in orders are for 2022, based on Tarana’s current 2022 sales commitments, and this amount could increase as demand for Tarana’s G1 fixed wireless product continues to grow.

Ethernity has provided Tarana with the Company’s ENET 4820z FPGA SoC with unique silicon-tuned software, which, thanks to the efficiency of the ENET Flow Processor design, fits into low-cost FPGAs that are capable of meeting prices of mass production. Working in concert with Tarana’s radio technology in its tower-installed base nodes, the ENET Flow Processor provides advanced networking functions, traffic control, and management for up to 512 homes per ENET SoC.
Ethernity Networks CEO David Levi said: “We are delighted to see that the rate of deployment has exceeded original expectations as evidenced by the accelerated orders we have now received from Tarana for this year and next. It has been especially encouraging to see Tarana’s customers releasing their services based on this product, and we are extremely pleased to have contributed to the technology behind it. As we continue to work with Tarana on future generations, we are confident that this can be a mutually rewarding partnership for many years to come.”
