OTTAWA -- 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 Avenue Link Lite. 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 specifications that ensure compliance with strict city-zoning regulations in order to blend into the urban landscape. DragonWave will be showcasing the Avenue Link Lite at Mobile World Congress, February 25-28 in Barcelona Spain, booth #5H47. The Avenue Link Lite is a single, all-outdoor unit and includes standard Ethernet interfaces and integrated antenna, making it easy to install and bring online. With DragonWave’s comprehensive network management system, the Avenue Link 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 in-band synchronization which eliminates the need for an external synchronization source. The high capacity and low latency capabilities of the Avenue Link Lite make it one of the first LTE-ready NLOS system. “DragonWave has been at the forefront of microwave radio technology and has a clear understanding that Small Cell networks are going to require a complete toolkit of solutions in order to be viable,” said Caroline Gabriel, Research Director Maravedis-Rethink Technology Research. “With the introduction of the Avenue Link Lite, operators now have access to the full range of available spectrum, allowing them greater flexibility to build out networks quicker, easier and more economically than ever before.” DragonWave Inc.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
