DragonWave Introduces "Harmony Radio Lite" Sub-6 GHz Wireless Broadband Solution
Fully integrated all-outdoor, Sub-6 GHz, LTE-Ready, microwave system
brings cost-effective and easily deployed wireless connectivity for
rural deployments, government and private networks, vertical
industries, mobile and extended network backhaul.
OTTAWA, CANADA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/11/13 -- DragonWave Inc.
(TSX:DWI)(NASDAQ:DRWI) a leading global supplier of packet microwave
radio systems for mobile and access networks, today announced a
product addition to its portfolio with the introduction of the
Harmony Radio Lite. Harmony Radio Lite is specifically tailored to
provide reliable and affordable connectivity to vertical markets,
such as public safety, education, healthcare, oil and gas
organizations and utilities, as well support growing mobile backhaul
demand in rural and suburban communities.
With a form factor of only 7.5 in square including antenna, the sub-6
GHz point-to-point microwave radio supports both licensed and
unlicensed spectrum and is ideally suited for non-line-of-sight
(NLOS) scenarios where obstructions are found between link endpoints.
The unit offers full scalability and is designed within rugged
outdoor specifications to ensure reliable performance and longevity
in the field. DragonWave will be showcasing the Harmony Lite at IWCE,
March 13-14 in Las Vegas, Nevada, booth #2322.
The Harmony Radio Lite is a single, all-outdoor unit and includes
standard Ethernet interfaces and an integrated antenna, making it
easy to install and bring online. With DragonWave's comprehensive
network management system, the Harmony Radio Lite can easily be
configured and monitored remotely, helping lead to a quick
return-on-investment for operators. Streamlined functionality is
further complimented by low power consumption (under 15W), PoE
compatibility, reduced cabling requirements and low delay.
Synchronization through 1588v2 and SynchE eliminates the need for an
external synchronization source. The high capacity and low latency
capabilities of the Harmony Radio Lite make it one of the first
LTE-ready NLOS systems.
"DragonWave clearly understands what's needed to provide
cost-effective connectivity for utilities, enterprises and rural
municipalities and communit
ies," said Richard Webb, Directing Analyst
of Infonetics Research. "By offering an affordable and easily
deployed solution such as the Harmony Radio Lite, verticals and rural
deployments can more easily be supported and enhanced utilizing a
radio that has extremely notable low latency performance and
reliability, while also saving on costs by utilizing unlicensed sub-6
Harmony Radio Lite links can be deployed using a tree topology, with
macrocell traffic aggregation points on rooftops, or with tail, chain
or small hub microsites at street level, which reduces interference
and offers more flexible network connectivity, as well as simplifying
network expansion and helping to ensure protected network
"Addressing vertical markets and a growing demand for rural and
suburban backhaul has driven our product strategy with the
introduction of the Harmony Radio Lite," said Peter Allen, CEO. "The
value proposition customers seek is Quality of Service assurance,
affordability and ease of deployment and management of the network -
we're confident the Harmony Radio Lite raises the bar by bringing the
lowest cost per bit with uncompromised performance."
