Australian Telecom Operator Selects Dragonwave's Solution for Critical Comm Network Upgrade

DragonWave has announced that Australia's leading telecommunications and information services company is deploying DragonWave Harmony Radio links and Hub 800 adaptable, multi-service nodal switches as part of an ongoing upgrade to its mission critical services network. DragonWave is working directly with its local partner, CommTel Network Solutions, to supply higher modulated Ethernet radios, bringing increased capacity, reliability and enhanced Ethernet capabilities.

DragonWave's Harmony Radio offers the only software-selectable evolution from hybrid to all-IP packet networks, enabling a simple migration path from TDM to all-IP backhaul with true "zero-touch" on the existing hardware. The Harmony Hub 800 is a compact indoor unit that provides maximum flexibility for 2G, 3G and LTE traffic aggregation, incorporating 16 Gbps switching capacity and support for up to 12 radio directions in a single unit.

The DragonWave solution based upon the Harmony and Harmony Hub 800 offers operators a proven and cost-effective means to upgrade critical communication networks with unmatched reliability and performance. The Harmony radio solution allows the Australian operator to easily swap out older radios without extensive rework to cabling, and establishes a scalable network solution with features that can support future network evolution.
