DragonWave Inc. provides wireless Ethernet equipment used in emerging Internet protocol (IP) networks. The company designs, develops, markets, and sells proprietary, carrier-grade microwave radio frequency networking equipment (often referred to as links), which wirelessly transmit broadband voice, video, and other data between two points. The company’s wireless carrier-Ethernet links, which are based on a native Ethernet platform, function as a wireless extension to an existing fiber and global optic core telecommunications network. The principal application for the company’s products is the backhaul function in a wireless communications network. Backhaul links connect the large amounts of network traffic aggregated by base stations and other collection points on the edge of the network to the high-capacity fiber optic infrastructure at the core of the network. Additional applications for the company’s products include point-to-point transport applications in private networks, including municipal and enterprise applications. The company’s products principally perform the backhaul function in a communication service provider's network, connecting high-traffic points of aggregation, such as high-capacity wireless base stations (3G+ cellular, Wi-Fi, and long-term evolution) small cells and large out of territory enterprises to nodes on the fiber optic core network. The company’s line of wireless carrier-Ethernet links is marketed under the Horizon trade names. The company’s products are carrier-grade and operate primarily in licensed spectrum bands to minimize interference. Principally, the company targets the global wireless communications service provider market and, in particular, those service providers offering high-capacity wireless communication services, including traditional cellular service providers and emerging broadband wireless access service providers. These service providers offer high-speed digital communication services over wireless access networks, employing IP-based wireless network access technologies, such as advanced (3G, 4G and 5G) cellular technologies, as well as Wi-Fi. The company also targets other markets, including wireless extension of fixed-line networks to directly connect high-bandwidth end-customers to the core network, and private networks of large multi-site organizations, such as Fortune 500 enterprises, municipalities, and government organizations. Products The company’s principal commercialized product lines are Harmony, Horizon, Avenue, and NetViewer. Harmony Product Family The Harmony product line is a multi-service wireless platform enabling time-division multiplexing (TDM) and packet-based services across wireless or wireline infrastructure. This product line was originally acquired through the Nokia Solutions and Networks transaction, and is resold by Nokia under the brand name Flexipacket. Harmony First Mile 200 Harmony First Mile 200 is an indoor unit of the Harmony family, which could be used for tail or chain application in the mobile backhaul. It can be connected to the Harmony Radio outdoor units (ODU) to carry traditional E1/T1 and Ethernet traffic. The Harmony First Mile 200 directly powers the Harmony Radio, offers flexible protection architectures, including Hot-Standby and ring capability. The Harmony First Mile 200 also provides multiple synchronization options. Harmony Hub 800 With the Harmony Hub 800, the company delivers a multi-service platform that provides packet, pseudowire and hybrid capabilities. Hub 800 is an indoor unit, which could be used for tail, hub and edge application in the mobile backhaul. It provides up to 12 ODU directions with high capacity TDMoP (up to 128E1s) and full protection scenario, and is able to have interface to SDH network as well. The Hub 800 uses a multi-slot structure, and provides microwave integration with the Harmony Radio. Optional cards are used to fit the requirements of different applications. The Harmony Hub 800 also provides multiple end-to-end synchronization options. Harmony Radio Harmony Radio is a microwave radio, which transports Ethernet traffic in RF bands from 3.5 GHz
