Read MoreHide Full Article

Casa Systems (CASA - Free Report) shares ended the last trading session 12.3% higher at $8.94. The jump came on an impressive volume with a higher-than-average number of shares changing hands in the session. This compares to the stock's 12.4% loss over the past four weeks.

CASA’s rally is largely driven by optimism over the launch of its new O-RAN mid-band radio, the ApexÔ 5G Evo. This new indoor radio solution provides simultaneous use of multiple mid-band channels, which enables service providers to enhance coverage and data speed, and deliver a multi-gigabit 5G experience to consumers and enterprises. The company continues to launch products, including its industry-leading 5G millimeter-wave fixed access devices. It aims to diversify its revenues through increased wireless and fixed telco sales as well as expanding its customer base.
